Love Without End

Title:  Love Without End (A King’s Meadow Romance Book #1)
Author:  Robin Lee Hatcher
Pages:  320
Year:  2014
Publisher:  Thomas Nelson
A western with a heart of romance and a love for ranch life is what I think of when I hear the title.  Two people older now and with teenagers, find themselves without their spouses.  Kimberly is a city girl who lost her husband and all she owned before moving in with her best friend in Idaho.  Chet was born and raised on a ranch and cannot imagine what made his wife leave and never care to look back on him and their two surviving sons.  Even though Chet knows the loss of their oldest son played a part in her leaving, he knew there was more but never did find out.
Now, on the Leonard ranch, life gets more complete when Nana Anna moves back from Florida.  Anna came to the ranch decades ago with nothing but her horse; she was an orphan.  Now in her eighties she wants to be back where her life was blessed so much and back to riding horses and being part of the ranch life.  The scenes vividly described throughout the tale made me want to pack my bags, find a ranch like the one in the novel where stars are seen against the backdrop of a clear night, and horses nearby to ride to a quiet forest or to look over a hill where the only sound one can hear is the wind.
I have loved westerns for a long time mostly because of the peace and quiet a small town life can bring.  I know it would not be an easy life at all and there would be some things unavailable compared to suburb life, but I could get used to it.  Robin Lee Hatcher has written a story that gives hope, along with showing how prayer is such an intricate part of life and how people have to choose sometimes between better and best like Kimberly had to do.  It was cute too how Chet and Kimberly had similar responses to contemplating marriage again.  The way they thought or their bodies reacted was at times what made me chuckle out loud.  I hope you read this book as next year book two, Whenever You Come Around, will be released.  I can’t wait!
My rating is 5 stars.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
