When a Texas Ranger comes to town on a mission to capture his brother's killers, he finds more than he expected--including a young midwife who may hold the key to the justice he seeks.
A Tender Hope finishes up the Cimarron Creek Trilogy and all of the story threads throughout the series by bringing four more strangers to town.
Thea Michener is leaving her hometown with her friend Aimee to start anew in Cimarron Creek. After a devastating year, her husband’s and baby son’s death, she just needs a fresh start and as a much needed midwife the town is welcoming her with open arms.
Aimee is also seeking a new start by looking for her birth mother who grew up in Cimarron Creek and to start a relationship with her. Unfortunately distance and time stand in the way of that relationship.
Jackson Guthrie is a Texas Ranger bent on bringing his brother’s murderers to justice. He believes Thea’s late husband was part of the gang who murdered his brother and believes she knows something. Thea does know some things but neither understands the danger that is awaiting Thea from a vengeful gang member.
And last but not least is a little baby boy by the name of Stuart whom Ranger Jackson found on the side of the road and has given his care to Thea and Aimee until he can solve the case of where and who are Stuart’s family.
This story dealt with a lovely hometown, matchmakers, and true love but there was a trace of unease and suspense in the background as the gang that Jackson is after are murderers and torturers and they will stop at nothing and no one to wreak their havoc to get what they want.
