I've never read a Shanna Hatfield book that I didn't love and "Lightning and Lawmen" didn't disappoint. Book 5 of Baker City Brides is full of mystery, humor, joy and the sense of belonging.
Delilah Robbins is one character I think most of us like, she's independent, knows her mind and isn't afraid to do what she wants regardless of what society might think. My favorite characteristic is her love of birds and creating a haven for them in her back yard. I can just visualize the beauty that Shanna describes of this haven. I can see myself sitting in the yard, listening to the songs of the birds and breathing in the fragrances of all the beautiful flowers planted to attract the birds. I laughed at Seth and Dugan's competitiveness of the beautiful newcomer and she has no plans to marry! You'll revisit characters from the previous books (if you haven't read any, you need to correct that immediately). Oh, but my favorite, my all time favorite is a little fellow named Oliver. That is all I'm going to say so I don't give the story a way and its taking great restraint not to but you will love Oliver!!!!
I received this book as a gift and all opinions are my own.
P.S. - If you have never read any of Shanna's books, you will be hooked the moment you opened the first book! NO KIDDING!!!
