The Outer Edge of Heaven by Jaclyn M. Hawkes

I just finished reading The Outer Edge of Heaven by Jaclyn M. Hawkes.

Back Cover:
Her parents want a clout wielding attorney, safely enthroned in an appropriately high end Mercedes sedan and a tailored business suit. She just wants to teach kindergarten.

When her "all-powerful" parents actually choose her future husband, who just happens to be a divorce lawyer named Elroy, Charlie opts out and heads for Big Sky Country. After all, who marries a divorce lawyer? She and her best friend Fo, who have been buddies since the third grade, go to work on his cousin's sprawling ranch in the heart of the Montana Rockies.

Filled with colorful characters of all shapes, sizes and species, including an orphaned baby pig, most of the Langston family put the fun in dysfunctional, five or take a couple of black sheep. There's one in every family, isn't there?

Add to that glorious scenery, a horse of her own, and one extremely attractive cousin rancher, Luke Langston, and it makes for a summer never to be forgotten. Which might not be a good thing. She has the time of her life, but her heart may never recover.

My Review:

I enjoyed this book. It was a quick and easy read. Luke is a yummy hero, Fo is the fun brother every girl wishes for, and the setting is prime for romance! I had to laugh at Elroy, just because I couldn't help but wonder why he didn't get a hint! Jaclyn's characters are strong and their adventures are enthralling. If you need a book that is a good clean read, The Outer Edge of Heaven is certainly an enjoyable choice!

Love and Laughter!
