Caught in the Middle
Book Three in the Ladies of Caldwell County Series
She wants the freedom of the open plains
He wants the prestige of a successful business
And the baby just needs someone who can change a diaper.
The train to Garber, Texas, is supposed to bring life’s next victory for Nicholas Lovelace. Instead, it gets held up robbers who are thwarted by the last person Nick ever expected—Anne Tillerton from back home in Prairie Lea.
Anne’s been hiding away as a buffalo hunter. She’s only in town to find their runaway cook, but the woman flees—and leaves Anne with her infant son. With Nick the only person she knows in town, the two form an unlikely team as they try to figure out what to do with the child.
But being in town means Anne’s forced to act and dress for polite society—and it’s not going well. Meanwhile, Nick’s work is bringing new pressures, and being seen with Anne isn’t helping his reputation. Caught between their own dreams, a deepening relationship, and others’ expectations—can the pair find their way to love?
“With its nonpreachy depiction of vulnerable but strong characters wrestling with right and wrong, Jennings’ entertaining romance will please readers who enjoy tales that embody Christian values as well as readers who like a good, wholesome story.”
“Jennings (Sixty Acres and a Bride) creates a strong heroine in this historical romance that veers between comedy and drama… Jennings is a strong writer who has fashioned two complex characters (and the) character transformation in this tale will certainly satisfy Christian readers.”
