"Oh dayum! The Drifter was GOOD! Freaking awesome characters--a fierce as hell heroine and one crazy sexy laid back cowboy, mystery and sabotage and a family doing everything they can to survive. Add in lots of cowhands who were all such characters and a cute pup named Cracker and I was just completely smitten with this one."

"The author has done a fantastic job of writing an exceptional western novel which I totally enjoyed. You will want to read this because it's really that good!"

  • * "Excellent. What I really enjoyed about this book was how strong and determined she was. A woman trying to pick up the pieces that was left after the death of her father and her older brother packed up leaving her to take care of mother, sister and younger brother. Even though the pressure was on by the coming deadline to pay on her loan or leave the ranger. In steps Chet, he was a drifter looking for work. When he comes upon Maria’s ranch and that is when the story starts picking up the pace. Chet and Maria was a great love [story]. These two will have you cheering for them."
    Schmidt seamlessly integrates actual events… with her fictional characters…a strong    tale of hope and love in the face of insurmountable obstacles."
