Summary

Redemption’s Edge, book one of the Redemption Mountain historical western romance series

Dax Pelletier is ready to start a new life, far away from the one he left behind in Savannah following the South’s devastating defeat in the Civil War. The ex-Confederate general wants nothing more to do with commanding men and confronting the tough truths of leadership.

Rachel Davenport possesses skills unlike those of her Boston socialite peers - skills acquired while working as a nurse in field hospitals during the Civil War. Eschewing her northeastern suitors and forever changed by the violence and death she’s seen, Rachel decides to accept her uncle’s invitation to assist him at his clinic in the wild frontier of Montana. 

Now a Texas Ranger, a promise made to a friend takes Dax and his brother, Luke, to the untamed territory of Montana. He’ll fulfill his oath and return to Austin. 

The small town of Splendor is exactly what Rachel needs after life in a large city. She’s grown to love the people as well as the majestic beauty of the sprawling frontier wilderness.

Nice day for a White Wedding

Fantastically and beautifully narrated, giving life to events in a small Montana town. Misunderstandings, misadventures and misguided renegades make this lightweight tale entertaining over 10 hrs with the romance only reaching it's aim in the last 10 minutes this side of the bedroom door. For a story about and doctor and his niece/nurse, a little bit more of the grit of life on the frontier could've been included. No brain cells required to enjoy this quaint story. ENJOYABLE

Great Western Romance with a Little Mystery too.

I just started this series. I am actually on second book now but came back to add review.
Redemption Mountain is an entertaining western series about a group of people fleeing memories of the Civil War by moving to Mountana. They are overcoming different obstacles, finding love, and solving mysteries that threaten their new town. Little cursing. No graphic sex. Just good people with a good story.

Western Excellents

Loved this story from start to finish. The characters were believable and the story flowed well. There were times I wanted to shake the characters but all turned out well in the end. The story wrapped up well but there was still a bit of a cliffhanger for the next book. Can't wait!

Great listen

Good western with mix of romance, mystery and gunfire. Perfect listen while doing housework, spreadsheets or long drive to office.

No vulgar or inappropriate situations… so good for all ages if listening in the car with the family

Awesome!

Terrific wholesome love story that has a little heat but lets you use your imagination. A strong heroin and a gentlemanly hero that isnt stuck on himself or his past. No poor pitiful me's in the book! Lots of suspense puts you right into the old west with surprises around every corner and a surprise ending you didn't see coming! I could even recommend it for my 17 year old daughter. Will probably come back and listen to it again after I finish the last book. Its that good!!
