There are 4 books in this series. They do not have to be read in order, although the first one will be more tense/mystery if you read it before any of the others. The primary characters in one become the secondary in another. The first three are the Dawson siblings -Becky, Sam and Hank, the fourth is the story of the Sheriff, Andy Johnson. All the books are emotionally charged. They deal with family dynamics and small town and ranch living.
The order is
For Pete's Sake (SSE #739)
Silent Sam's Salvation (SSE #745)
Heartbreak Hank (SSE #751)
The Forever Night (SSE #816)
This is the most wonderful series, and Temte is a wonderful story teller. Grand story, loved it, every word.
Criminy! How could one little sexy city gal in tight leggings and high tops cause such a commotion in Sam Dawson's life? He hadn't asked for her to show up with her rebellious son and melt your heart little girl, but he sure didn't want her to leave.
