In the still of a cool Colorado evening, the Circle J Ranch house burns to the ground, leaving Susannah Jones and her two brothers orphaned and homeless. Embittered by the tragedy, Susannah’s older brother grows increasingly cruel, leading Susannah to make the difficult choice to leave the last of her family behind to forge a new life for herself. It is the kindness of Dr. Kate, the woman physician in town, as well as a chance meeting with a rugged homesteader that give Susannah the strength she needs to escape.
When Joseph Iverson encounters the harassed young woman on his land one day, he has no thought but to provide the assistance she so clearly needs. Overcoming his shyness, he takes Susannah under his wing and agrees to a marriage of convenience to liberate her from her brother. As the pair works side by side, their mutual admiration deepens. But their happy existence is threatened all soon by a series of “accidents” on the farm. With danger looming ever closer, Susannah and Joseph must discover who is bent on their destruction before the life and marriage they’ve built together goes up in flames.
Saving Susannah Jones is the new book from author Carolyn Twede Frank. The two main characters Susannah and Joe both are not your typical main characters. They have lived very hard lives and have many insecurities buried deep within their souls. I loved how both Joe and Susannah found strength from being around each other. This kind of journey for them made this book such a good read. Susannah's brother is well written as the "bad" guy in the story and is bent on making them suffer.
This western romance is full of tender moments and also those filled with great angst. I definitely was cheering on Susannah and Joe as they faced their dark pasts and worked together against those who wanted to destroy their future. I recommend this clean romance.
