Mesilla, New Mexico Territory 1850

Quentin Romero has found the girl he wants to marry. For him, Teresa is everything. The only problem is that his mother will never approve of his choice.

Carlotta Romero has plans for her son and they don’t include him marrying someone who is beneath their station in life. She wants to see the family get more powerful in a country that is still growing.

Quentin is determined to marry Teresa no matter what his mother says. He also doesn’t want the same things his mother does. Now he just has to convince his mother that Teresa is the right one for him.

Teresa is afraid of what will happen when Carlotta finds out about her and Quentin’s plans. She knows his mother will never approve of her only son marrying the help. She knows that there is no one else for her but Quentin, but she needs the opportunity to prove that to his mother.

Just as Quentin and Teresa think things will finally work out for them, tragedy strikes. Not sure how they are going to overcome this newest development they stand by each other and their love for each other.

This is a really good book. With a few twists that keeps you glued to the next page. This is a enjoyable western combined with a mystery that makes it even better.

I give this one 4 red roses
