Book Review ~ Fourth and Long by Liz Isaacson


Title:   Fourth and Long by Liz Isaacson
Series:  Three Rivers Ranch Romance
Pages:  179
Date Published: February 16, 2016
Publisher:  AEJ Creative Works


Commander Brett Murphy left his family’s construction firm in Oklahoma City for a life of hard work at Three Rivers Ranch. Alone, without a wife and kids, Brett needs the camaraderie he enjoyed while serving overseas with his Army buddies, Squire Ackerman and Peter Marshall.

What Brett doesn’t need is the reappearance of his ex-wife. Fiery Kate Donnely has come to Three Rivers to confess to Brett that they’re still married, and oh, he has a seven-year-old son she never told him about. At least not in letters she mailed.

Eight years ago, Kate left Oklahoma City only weeks after Brett’s first deployment, shamed because of her bad choices and the unborn child of a man she’d already asked for a divorce. She needs him to sign the papers now or she can’t have access to her hefty inheritance. But Brett absolutely does not want Kate to take his son away from him again.

They strike a deal: She’ll stay at Three Rivers for the summer so Brett can have the opportunity to get to know his son. How far will they have to go and how much will they have to forgive in order to become a family?

My Thoughts:

This is the third book in this series by Liz Isaacson.  I really enjoyed the first book, "Second Chance Ranch."  You can read my review for that book HERE!  And the second book, "Third Time's the Charm".  You can read that review HERE!

I wasn't certain about this book in the beginning as I didn't really like the leading lady, Kate.  She had done a lot of questionable things and was continuing to make mistakes as she went along.

I really liked Brett who was introduced in "Third Time's the Charm" and didn't like that he was being treated so poorly.

After reading the transformation story, I grew to like Kate and was even rooting for her by the end.

I really like books that have emails and letters and it was fun reading the letters from Kate and the emails from Brett.  Especially after they actually started SENDING them!

I'm really looking forward to reading more of this series during the summer :)

I downloaded this book through Kindle Unlimited.

Onto the next book :)
