Fire & Ice Review


About the Book

Bailey Wilde is one of the best new ranchers in the West. She's been living disguised as a man for a while, but when Gage Coulter comes to drive her off her homestead, he quickly realizes he's dealing with a woman--a very tough, very intriguing woman at that.

Gage is an honest man, but he didn't make his fortune being weak. He won't break the law, but he'll push as hard as he can within it. Five thousand acres of his best range land is lost to him because Bailey's homestead is located right across the only suitable entrance to a canyon full of lush grass. Gage has to regain access to his land--and he's got to go through Bailey to do it.

Spending a winter alone has a way of making a person crave some human contact. In a moment of weakness, Bailey agrees to a wild plan Gage concocts. Can these two independent, life-toughened homesteaders loosen up enough to earn each other's respect--and maybe find love in
the process? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

Once again Mary writes a witty comedy set in the old west. This one has a unique twist in the fact that Bailey is thought to be a man and is indeed a woman. There is silly banter between characters and of course and end goal that they both want. While being humorous, it's so very predictable and thus didn't intrigue me as much. I enjoy Mary's writing but at times the plots seem all the same and predictable. I wish I could say better but I did love the setting and that previous characters were included from the other books.
For a very light read you will enjoy.

Four stars.

"I received this book from Bethany House for free in exchange for an honest review."
