About the Author: Cindy Holby

I ve always been a writer Ever since I could remember my biggest desire was to put words to paper Finally my dreams of publication came true in 2002 with the release of Chase The Wind, the first book in my historical family saga But I ve also looked to the stars since I was a small girl Which led to my writing of Futuristic Action Romance under the pen name Colby Hodge And since I ve got a knack for relating to teens, I also enjoy writing for them under the name Kassy Tayler.And just so you know a bit about me I ve been married for several years to the man of my dreams We ve also raised two exceptional sons and enjoy life in the shadow of Pilot Mountain in NC where we share our home with a long haired dauschund and a cat who thinks she s the queen of the world.

    A very enjoyable novel Ms Holby does not disappoint with this one Though there are a few typos that I could ve gone without, and the end seems to happen a little suddenly, I still highly recommend this book to anyone who likes western romance.

    I m really enjoying this Angel s End series by Cindy Holby Angel s End is a small very small Colorado town back when the wild west was still growing We met all of the townsfolk in the first book, and they re back for Jake s story, which I have been looking forward to, since he didn t get the girl before Now that all of his plans for the future have been derailed, he s not sure which direction to go, something Jake s not used to Then he meets the most unconventional woman who does the mo I m really enjoying this Angel s End series by Cindy Holby Angel s End is a small very small Colorado town back when the wild west was still growing We met all of the townsfolk in the first book, and they re back for Jake s story, which I have been looking forward to, since he didn t get the girl before Now that all of his plans for the future have been derailed, he s not sure which direction to go, something Jake s not used to Then he meets the most unconventional woman who does the most unexpected things Needless to say, he s smitten.After one of the harshest winters they ve had in a long while, Jake is headed into town when Libby the mule shows up at his ranch, an event that means something s up somewhere and it s never good On the trail he meets up with Cassie Parker, granddaughter to Sam Parker who owned the ranch next to Jake He d given up waiting for the next of kin to show up, because it s been two years since he d written to relatives that Sam had passed on So imagine his surprise when he runs into Cassie, a woman who s secretive to the max Arriving just before the first snow months ago and never making anyone aware of her presence is a case in point Jake is determined to figure out what her other secrets are Never mind the hundreds of sheep she s brought into cattle country His troubles are just beginning.Cassie and her rag tag family were forced to leave Texas when she went up against an influential family and lost The result being the loss of her trust in men, the loss of her mother s mental capacity, but they gained loyal friends in Manuel and Rosa What she doesn t need is her closest neighbors giving her grief all the time, one mean enough over the fact she has sheep on her ranch and one sweet enough to help out whenever there s need And lately there s been a lot of need As handsome and gentlemanly as Jake is, Cassie just can t bring herself to trust him But the way he makes her feel, like she s never felt before, is still messing with her head, even when the man isn t around.When the local bully begins his campaign to run her out off her land, he nearly succeeds Is the pain worth staying, despite the fact that most of the townsfolk are nice people and have welcomed them Is it time Cassie should cast off her past and learn the feel of a real man in her life These and so manyare questions Cassie has to answer in this new life she s trying to carve out for the people she loves, as well as the new people who could come to mean just as much to her I love how Jake little by little works his way under Cassie s skin, even when she knows it s happening There s just no way to keep this man at bay when he sets his mind to something I also enjoyed getting caught up with all the other folks in town, especially Wade I m hoping he has his own book coming up, because there is definitely a story there.Cindy Holby is perfection on the page when it comes to the sights and sounds, the feel of the western frontier The hope of a new life in a new land, along with the excitement and fear of the unknown pull you into a bygone era so effortlessly Her characters live the life, good and bad, deal with it in the only way they can and move on, keeping the faith and a smile If you ve not read this series, do Only two books so far, so you can catch up I have a feeling the best part is yet to come.See my complete review at
