Barbour Publishing Painted Desert

Women have to be tough to thrive in the Arizona desert---even in the 21st century! When Blaire inherits her uncle's ostrich ranch, will she crack like an egg under the pressure? Will Jazmyn find romance with a taciturn desert tour guide? And will Maddy's joint photo expedition develop into something deeper? Three unputdownable love stories! 352 pages, softcover from Barbour.

I got this book to take on a trip because I knew I would have lots of time to read. I had a hard time getting interested in the characters right off, so have not finished the book. But maybe later on in the book it will be better, so I haven't given up. I guess I am not an obvious romance fan, where you know on the first two pages what is going to end up happening. and I didn't care. sadly

The three stories that make up this book are separate, yet intricatley woven and it isnt until the middle of the third book that the reader realizes that all of them are connected. All three stories are laced with humor, excitement, suspense, drama and of course love and happiness.
The several mini plots keep the reader guessing as to what is going to happen next.
There are three very important messages that keep coming to the surface. They are trust and what happens to us if we trust in God for everything. Forgiveness and how the Lord changes our hearts when he ask him to and of course the constant reminder that God strengthens so that we may to His will in our daily lives.
I cant wait to read another book by this author ...

I very much enjoyed reading this book. I have visited some of the places in Arizona mentioned in the story. I plan to visit the Ostrich Ranch the next time I go there. The stories were exiting to read.
