The Lawman’s Holiday Wish | Ruth Logan Herne


Today I am reviewing The Lawman’s Holiday Wish, the 3rd book in the Kirkwood Lake series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Second-Chance Christmas

No one in Kirkwood Lake seems willing to forget, or forgive, Rainey McKinney’s troubled past.

But Rainey can’t afford to let that bother her. Her top priority is rebuilding her life and being a good mom to her twin daughters.

Even handsome deputy sheriff Luke Campbell can’t distract her, tempting as he is.

She’s determined to keep her distance, but as his son and her girls form a special bond, Rainey and Luke can’t help but do the same.

Can Rainey put her past behind her once and for all and embrace a future full of hope—and love?

Rainy McKinney has had more than her share of trouble . . .

Even though she was exonerated of a crime — and her criminal record was expunged — certain people in the town refuse to forget her past . . . or let her forget it.

When Luke Campbell approaches Rainy with a request to join forces in dealing with problems concerning their children, she willingly complies. But Luke has problems of his own. Will he end up pushing her away because of his past?

I can’t recommend this story enough! It’s amazing!

If you enjoy reading books by Ruth Logan Herne, or if you’re reading the Kirkwood Lake series, be sure to get this one – it’s the best one so far (I think… I love them all, so it’s almost impossible to pick a favorite).

Don’t miss this exciting series, found in the wonderful (fictional) place of Kirkwood Lake.

Happy Reading!!!

    I’ve read and enjoyed many books with a similar theme, a character’s past life doesn’t reflect their present life and other people who knew them before can’t or won’t accept them now. Even when years have passed by. Always challenging to “redeem” themselves in other’s eyes…I love to see when God get through to them that they are a new creation 🙂 This one sounds like it should be on my shelf, lol!

    I love this story. I wanted to write Rainey’s story all the while I was writing Piper’s story… but Piper was inspired by two local farm women, and the stuff that happened to their family farms and how this is happening all around the country. Small farms and family farms are falling by the wayside because it’s hard to pass a farm down to family members… and not split up a legacy.

    So when I got to Rainey’s story, to this lovely Christmas story, I had so much fun with it. Setting up Luke in the previous book, and little Aiden’s trauma… And my son Luke was the model for the cover! And my grandson David and granddaughter Katie were the models for the kids. I had so much fun doing that!

    This is going to be a story of redemption. It is sad individuals cannot forgive and forget like God does. This book is definitely going to be a keeper. Thanks for sharing your inspiration for the story, Ruth. Donna, thank you for all the wonderful reviews of Ruth’s books this month. Blessings to all.
