Grace Carver has only known the quiet town of Jacobsville, Texas as her home. She works at a florist shop and cares for her invalid grandmother. After Garon moves next door, Grace feels an attraction for him but past memories keep her heart guarded.
FBI Agent Garon Grier leaves San Antonio and buys a ranch in Jacobsville. He likes to keep a low profile, trying to keep to himself. After losing his wife, Garon has no intentions of ever falling in love again, then he meets Grace.
After Grace graduated from high school, her grandmother became an invalid, leaving Grace to get a job and care for her grandmother. Throughout it all, Grace has learned to be independent in her own way but still holds a secret most of the townspeople are aware. When Garon meets Grace there is something about her that sends up a red flag whenever a man is present. He is on a mission to catch a killer, a child predator. He carries his own hurtful scars and falling in love is certainly not on his lists. The more, he and Grace, spend time together, there is a bond shared between them. Grace never thought of love and marriage until she met Garon. The town is happy to finally see Grace radiant and full of life but things shift after she and Garon spend the night together. As Garon struggles to locate a killer, the two connect in a way to ease their past scars but is it enough to make them one happy union or push them further away?
Lawman is a thrilling read. I like the way Garon and Grace must overcome their differences and pain to finally greet each other without a sparing match. They are different than night and day but there is something that spirals them together allowing them to lean upon the other. I found them both likable even though they sought to resist the other. To me, it only made the story grow and develop better. Diana Palmer always pens stories where I fall in love with everything inside the pages. This one is another fantastic page-turner. She makes her surroundings, along with her characters, believable and breathes life into the whole town.
