Can one woman heal the heart of a lawman? A gardener who uses plants to heal, Fern Montgomery is an outcast who refuses to be pushed out of town. When her friend is murdered and all fingers point to Fern as the only suspect, she must find a way to prove her innocence while fighting off unwanted feelings for the sheriff. Sheriff Gabe Bennett has his mind set on arresting Sarah Fuller’s killer. But his key suspect isn’t what he expected. He soon realizes there is more to the quiet gardener than he’d first anticipated. As passion blooms, Gabe is forced to face his feelings—and the woman who has stolen his heart.
Kat is a very good storyteller, I was captivated from the beginning of this novella to the end.
I wanted to stop but I just couldn’t and before I knew it, I had read into the night.
Fern is about the eldest of the Montgomery sisters, who lived in a country filled with misogynsts and men who were intimidated by strong willed women.
This story started off really well with the insight into the character and personality of the sisters, and then it took a new turn that I wasn’t expecting, from a murder investigation to getting to know the obnoxious men that lived in Manchester, to a sudden twist of near death experiences and finally to an unexpected romance.
A book that takes you by surprise with every turn of the pages. I can’t wait to read the other books in the Montgomery sisters series
