Rachel Bailey is a seamstress in the Colorado town of Reidsville. Forced to flee Sacramento, she tries to keep to herself and has few friends. She is well liked by the townspeople though.

Wyatt Cooper is the Sheriff of Reidsville and very handsome. He is much more than he seems also, and takes a particular interest in Rachel.

Rachel has spent a mostly happy if lonely year in Reidsville. Her dressmaking business has kept her busy as has her little house in town. The death of her benefactor in California will change her life dramatically. The town’s wellbeing and her own inheritance hinge on her marriage to the local sheriff. They decide on a marriage of convenience which is not convenient to either of them.

Readers of western historicals are going to just love this story; in fact anyone who likes a good story will find something to like in this novel. The characters are vividly written, filling the town of Reidsville with some very colorful and interesting characters. I liked the author’s depiction of a growing western town dependent on its railroad spur to exist, and the love story had me hooked from the first page. Foster makes a splendid villain and the townspeople’s efforts to thwart him were original and inspired. This is an excellent romance to enjoy.
