Sunday Post - 01/15/23

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Monday was a super busy day. I took the kids to school. Came home and went for a walk. Then I went to get Little Boy from school, took the boys to Chick-fil-a for lunch, and then took them both to get haircuts. I got back home just in time to put Baby Boy down for a nap and turn around and go get Little Girl. I'm so thankful Husband works from home now. Tuesday was fairly normal. We took my car to the shop to get an alignment. We had to leave it for pretty much the whole day. After school, Husband's mom and sister came by to visit since his sister was in town from Georgia. Wednesday was basically my only normal day of the week. Thursday, it was super windy in the morning so I just let the boys play outside instead of going for a walk. I raked leaves trying to prepare for tons of wind expected with bad weather later that day. I kept waiting for the school to release the kids early due to severe weather, but they never did. By the time I was about determined to go get Little Girl myself, the weather was upon us. It got here about an hour earlier than predicted. And central Alabama had tornadoes all across the state. Our direct area wasn't affected, but within our school district a little north of us got hit as well as Selma, Alabama. Selma got hit really bad. My neice's husband is a firefighter in Selma. Friday was a pretty normal day also now that I think about it. The kids had their second basketball games Saturday morning.

Goodreads description--Hearts collide when a sheriff’s daughter asks a hardened US Marshal to join her fight for justice and rid a small town of her corrupt father.

Wyoming Territory, 1876

US Marshal John “Hawk” Hawking is one of the most respected lawmen in the West, so when a telegram arrives from the small town of Sand Creek warning him of a death threat against him, he immediately begins an investigation.

Posing as a farmer, Hawk heads to Sand Creek, a town ruled by a violent and corrupt sheriff. Only one person is trying to stop him—Liesl, the sheriff’s own daughter. When she meets the self-assured and attractive new farmer, John, she hopes he might help her in the fight for justice.

John is completely unfazed by Sheriff Hodges’s attempts at intimidation, and Liesl is quickly swept up by Hawk’s courage and integrity. Just as quickly, Hawk finds himself falling for Liesl’s strength and bravery, as well as her grace and beauty.

When Liesl discovers John’s true identity, she feels betrayed. Despite her lingering distrust of him, Liesl agrees to work with him to enact a dangerous plan that will put the criminals away forever. Liesl must put her life, and her heart, in the hands of his lawman if she has any hope of saving her family and her town.
