Book Review: No Other Will Do

From the Back:

A Ladies of Harper Station Novel
She Trusts Him for the Job, 
But Can She Trust Him With Her Heart?
Men are optional. That was the credo Emma Chandler's suffragette aunts taught her and why she established Harper's Station, a women's colony that offers a fresh start to females in need. But when a dangerous and shadowy assailant tries repeatedly to drive the women out, Emma is forced to admit they might need a man after all. One who can fight. And there is only one man she trusts enough to ask.

Malachi Shaw has finally earned the respect he's always craved by becoming an explosives expert for the railroad. Yet when Emma's telegram arrives, he rushes back to Texas to repay the girl who once saved his life. Only she's not a girl any longer. She's a woman with a mind of her own and a smile that makes a man imagine a future he doesn't deserve.

As the danger intensifies, Emma, Mal, and the ladies of Harper's Station must choose safety or whether to risk everything to fight for their future.
My Reflections:

As you may be aware if you follow my blog, I am a huge fan of Karen Witemeyer. Her books never disappoint, me her novels are always filled with quirky characters, engaging plots and daring drama. Her newest release "No Other Will Do" will certainly delight Witemeyer fans. 

Emma Chandler has been raised by two loving aunts who are suffragettes. The aunts help shape Emma's passion for helping women in need of love, protection, and self-reliance . 
During Emma's youth, they also take in a young boy named Malachi, a hurting and desperate youth who was fighting just to survive. 
Years later Emma is all grown up and managing a bank and a town filled with independent women seeking to better their life. When someone tries to threaten her town and terrorize the residents she calls on Malachi to come and help protect the women she feels responsible for.

Will Malachi be able to protect the town? Will he be able to keep his true feelings hidden from the only girl who holds his heart?  Will Emma figure out who is responsible for the recent attack on her little village of women? Why does being near her good friend Malachi once again feel so perfect?

An endearing story, a relaxing read. I'm not sure I would say this is my favourite read from this author but I did enjoy it never the less. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
