Review by Bonnie Roof of Erica Vetsch's "The Bounty Hunter's Baby"


By Erica Vetsch

Here's the publisher's blurb:
Brought Together by a Baby 
Bounty hunter Thomas Beaufort has no problem handling outlaws, but when he's left with a criminal's baby to care for, he's in over his head. And the only person he can think of to ask for help is Esther Jensen, the woman whose heart he broke when he left town. But can he convince her to put aside the past until he tracks down the baby's outlaw father? 
Esther is ready to run Thomas off her Texas ranch—until she spies the abandoned newborn in his arms. Soon, working together to care for the precious babe stirs old hopes of a family. With trouble heading to their door, they could overcome it together—if she'll entrust her wary heart to this sweet, second-chance family…

Review by Bonnie Roof
5 Stars *****


1888 Texas
Since the death of her father, 5 years previous, Esther Jensen has struggled to single-handedly maintain their Texas ranch by taking in the laundry of cowboys. A former ranch hand for Esther's father, Thomas Beaufort broke her heart when he left to become a bounty hunter. When he reappears, her bitterness for Thomas resurfaces, but her conscience won't let her reject his plea for her help in caring for an abandoned newborn - while he tracks down the baby's outlaw father.

Surprised at the dilapidation of the ranch, Thomas holds some surprises of his own - for Esther. Two needy people - one struggling to prove his self-worth, the other harboring feelings against forgiveness.

The Bounty Hunter's Baby is a touching novel filled with romance, adventure, faith, descriptive settings, and realistic characters. I related to the pain of both Thomas and Esther, "rooted" for their happiness, and delighted in the transformations wrought in each of them as the story unfolded. I loved this beautiful story of redemption and hope by Erica Vetsch!

Stories that have a very masculine cowboy type character and a baby always appeal to me (not to mention a sweet romance)Mixed with the Erica Vetsch style and it's bound to be good!
