Book Review - A Refuge of Convenience (Wind River Chronicles #3) By: Kathy Geary Anderson


About the Book

A Refuge of Convenience 
 (Wind River Chronicles #3) 
By:  Kathy Geary Anderson 

She doesn’t trust men. He doesn’t trust women. Can they learn to trust each other?
On the run from her past, nurse Claire Monroe’s only hope of disappearing lies in the hands of her former patient, Wyoming rancher, Jackson Garrity. But Jackson shouldn’t even be out of the hospital. He can barely walk, let alone protect her. Besides, he’s a man, and life has taught her men are not to be trusted.
Jackson doesn’t know a thing about women. Ever since his mother abandoned him and his three brothers, his father hasn’t allowed a single female—human or animal—to live on their ranch. But one thing he does know: Claire is hiding secrets, dark ones, and he’d be a fool to take her home with him. But when his boss delivers an ultimatum, he and Claire reach an uneasy compromise in a marriage of convenience.
Then a Pinkerton detective shows up on their doorstep and their convenient marriage becomes anything but

My Thoughts

A Refuge of Convenience is book three in the Wind River Chronicles series. I have been fortunate to read the entire series. This is Claire and Jackson's story. I will preface this by saying this book does talk about domestic abuse. Claire pretends to be Jackson's husband to escape after she kills her first husband. Jackson was in the hospital where she was a nurse. 
Jackson's boss insists they actually get married. They agree, but in name only.  When they get to where Jackson's ranch is located, more trouble awaits.  Jackson's father does not want any females on his ranch. 

The author did a great job with building her characters. Even the secondary characters are well written. I really felt I got to know all of them. While we see that they agree to a marriage in name only, God works on their hearts. There is a strong message of forgiveness, redemption and healing. I really enjoyed this book. It is well written. Thank you to the author, publisher and JustRead Publicity tours for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
