A Tender Hope (Cimarron Creek Trilogy Book #3) by [Cabot, Amanda]


As far as Thea Michener is concerned, it's time for a change. With her husband murdered and her much-anticipated baby stillborn, there is nothing left for her in Ladreville. Having accepted a position as Cimarron Creek's midwife, she has no intention of remarrying and trying for another child. So when a handsome Texas Ranger appears on her doorstep with an abandoned baby, Thea isn't sure her heart can take it.

Ranger Jackson Guthrie isn't concerned only with the baby's welfare. He's been looking for Thea, convinced that her late husband was part of the gang that killed his brother. But it soon becomes clear that the situation is far more complicated than he anticipated--and he'll need Thea's help if he's ever to find the justice he seeks.

Amanda Cabot invites readers back to Cimarron Creek for a tender story of loss, betrayal, and love in the majestic Texas Hill Country.

My thoughts:

A Tender Hope had such a great story line but to me it lacked a punch.  I kept reading to find out what happened although I felt it wasn't a page turner.  I just never got the part where it clicked for me.  

Given that,  the descriptions were perfect and I felt like I was out there with the Ranger looking for the gang.  I also could feel the deep sadness of Thea and the Ranger tragedy's they had experienced  in their lives. 

I kind of wish that this was two books, one to focus on Thea and one for her friend.  Both of their stories could have been a fantastic book a piece!  

A good romantic mystery that is worth the read.


I was given this book by Baker Publishing but was not required to write a positive review.

My Menu Plan for this Week 3/18/19!









It took three times going over to my daughters before I finally remembered to get the sauerkraut in her basement.  Got it this morning just in time for Reuben sandwiches today.   It stays nice and cool in her basement pantry.  Without a basement or cellar it can get too hot here to keep.  

I'm not really sure I like those green canning jars so much when I fill them with kraut.   Kind of look like Kraut has something wrong with it ha ha.  All is good though and the sandwiches will be great today.  

Yesterday was a new beginning on our low carb diet.  I'm going back to one cheat meal a week which seemed to work great for us before.  He is on board again, thank goodness.  I will eat everything he does, so I'm glad.  Never give up I guess.  



Monday              Reuben  Sandwiches (with low carb bread) and leftover  baked beans

Tuesday              Chili (made with leftover hamburgers)

Wednesday         Ham and cheese omelets

Thursday            Pork Chops (just fried down brown), sweet potato fries, and coleslaw

Friday                 Turkey and Dumplings (turkey that was frozen from last turkey dinner-cheat meal)

Saturday             Spaghetti  (grandkids will be here-spaghetti squash for us)

Sunday               Out to eat with grandkids- where ever we go I'm going to be good


What's on your menu plan for this week?
