The river runs wild …
Former Fish & Wildlife Officer Charlotte “Charlee” Tanner still carries the guilt of a tragic drowning accident that occurred on her watch. She hoped moving back home to the wilds of central Florida would provide a safe haven—until she learns the death was no accident, and she’s the intended target.
… But no wilder than their passion.
Tough and decisive, Lieutenant Hunter Boudreau loves his new job as a law enforcement officer with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. Charlee is his best friend, so when she comes under fire, he’s not letting her out of his sight until the killer is caught. But Charlee won’t sit by and let anyone else die for her.
As danger closes in and Charlee and Hunter’s attraction threatens to consume them, Charlee has to decide if she can trust Hunter. And to save Charlee, Hunter will have to trust her, too.

The Outlaw’s Mail Order Bride is the first title in Linda Broday’s new series, Outlaw Mail Order Brides. This book is a great start to what I expect to be a great series.

I loved the setting of this book, where Clay and his former outlaw friends are working on bringing a dying town back to life. I loved the other characters in this book and look forward to seeing them in the upcoming books from this series.

Tally is a character that you can not help but connect with and feel anger at the people who have hurt her. Due to this there is no surprise that she has trust issues, and this plays a part in her and Clays relationship. Clay is the type of person not to give up on helping her, and it’s a fun ride watching these two learn to be together.

I found The Outlaw’s Mail Order Bride to be full of action, danger, and interesting characters. It will pull you in and keep you engaged till its done.

Tips and Tricks – Buy quality things that last

When you are making a purchase you might just automatically go with the cheapest option out there. This is not always the smartest money move. Think about how many of the items you would have to buy to pay for the same thing which is a much higher quality that will last. Then think about how long it will take for you to go through the cheaper option, now double that time frame. If you can see the higher priced better quality item lasting as long or longer that the time frame you calculated it really would be the better option to purchase the more expensive option.

An example of this is a very nice pair of dress shoes vs a very cheap one. The better quality shoe could last you years and years, I have a pair that is still going strong after 25 years. That pair cost me $100 and I think it was a very wise investment.

Tips and Tricks – Use a programable thermostat

If you are like me then you are currently setting the thermostat and then forgetting about it until you are too hot or too cold. For me that means I’m either heating or cooling my place way too much.  With a programable thermostat the temperature will change to exactly where you want it to be at the time you set it. So if you change the temperature and forget about it the thermostat will bring the temp back to where you want it and you will be saving money by using less energy.
