Claiming Mariah Review

After her father’s death, Mariah Malone sends a letter that will forever alter the lives of her family. When Slade Donovan, strong willed and eager for vengeance, shows up on her front porch, Mariah is not ready to hear his truths: her father’s farm, the only home she’s ever known, was bought with stolen gold. With Slade ready to collect his father’s rightful claim and force Mariah and her family out on the streets, Mariah must turn to God for guidance. Though Mr. Frederick Cooper, a local landowner, promises to answer her financial woes if she agrees to be his bride, Mariah finds herself drawn instead to the angry young man demanding her home.

With the ranch now under Slade’s careful eye, he unearths more than he ever imagined as a devious plot of thievery, betrayal, and murder threatens the well-being of the ranch, endangering those who hold it dear. As the days dwindle until the rest of the Donovan clan arrives at the Lazy M ranch, Mariah and Slade must rise above the resentment of their fathers and see their true feelings before greed changes their futures forever.

Claiming Mariah by Pam Hillman was so wonderfully full of romance and suspense. I loved every minute I spent reading Claiming Mariah and hated that it had to end. The characters Ms. Hillman crafted together were so very easy to fall in love with. Everything the main characters, Mariah and Slade, went through in the past and were going through in the present made them that much more real and believable. I loved her writing style and I'm hoping that we'll soon see more books by Pam Hillman. 

5 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that I found very satisfying.

I received a copy of this book from Tyndale Blog Network in exchange for an honest review.
