SHOULD'VE SAID NO (THISTLE BEND # 1) BY TRACY MARCH
Release Date: November 24, 2015
Welcome to Thistle Bend! Perfect for fans of Susan Mallery, this charming series debut introduces a small town where old secrets are revealed—and wounded hearts are opened to new love.
A year after being laid off from the Smithsonian, Lindsey Simms says yes to a job offer as curator of a heritage museum in Thistle Bend, Colorado (population 1,519). It could be worse—and it is. Because the new museum has escalated a dispute between the Karlssons, Lindsey’s relatives, and the Crenshaws, a blood feud which goes way back to a land deal that changed the fortunes of both families. Trying to stay objective, Lindsey can’t tell anyone about her conflict of interest—especially not the ruggedly handsome handyman fixing up her cabin, who seems to be keeping secrets of his own.
Although he’s the executive director of the family trust and one of Colorado’s most eligible bachelors, Carden Crenshaw prefers getting his hands dirty in town and on his sprawling ranch. Staying busy has given him an excuse not to risk heartbreak, but getting to know the beautiful “museum lady” makes him reconsider. Little does he know, the heat between them will only add fuel to the fire—unless this unlikely couple can prove they’re lovers, not fighters.
REVIEW: SHOULD'VE SAID NO (THISTLE BEND # 1) BY TRACY MARCH
Should've Said No by Tracy March
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Tracy March is off to a wonderful start with her new Thistle Bend series. Should've Said No takes a years old feud and adds fuel to the fire. Lindsey is a woman who wants to move past decades old mess of her family. Too bad it is not proving to be as easy as she expected it. With such a high profile family Carden seeks escape from his responsibilities. How he does that is by getting his hands dirty, literally. Each enjoys the peace of not dealing with family drama. A storm is headed in their direction. I received an ARC of Should've Said No in exchange for an honest review. Carden and Lindsey are thrust into a situation that family loyalty and secret scandals has allowed to escalate. It's not their fight but choices have to made. Forbidden fruit is always the biggest draw.
