Inventions of the Heart by Mary Connealy is book two in The Lumber Baron’s Daughters series. This story takes over where the first in the series ends, so it is best to read this series in order. In this story we visit Michelle as she is staying at Zane’s ranch. While he has a working ranch, Michelle is full of ideas to make it better.
I so enjoyed this story, it has wonderful, caring characters. I especially enjoyed the knowledge the sisters have about designing and building. I enjoy the imagination the girls have and the dedication to their father’s plans. Once two of the girls are married, they have control over their father’s business and can remove their evil step-father. It was interesting to read the different steps that were needed for this to happen. I enjoyed reading of how Zane’s family come together. This story also has humor written into it with the amount of people who are forced to stay at Zane’s home for various reasons.
I voluntarily received a complimentary copy of this story, this is my honest review.
About the Book
Her heart seeks safety. But will trouble find her even here?
After her sister’s marriage, Michelle Stiles is left hiding at Two Harts Ranch with the handsome but stubborn Zane Hart. She’s managed to stay one step ahead of her stepfather and his devious plans, but if he finds her, she will no longer be safe.
Zane has problems of his own. Having discovered a gold mine on his property, he must figure out how to harvest it without kicking off a gold rush. Michelle, educated and trained to run her father’s business, wants to manage all aspects of the mine, but Zane thinks for a person so smart she can have some misguided ideas. Running the mining operation will be a dangerous job, and he can’t risk putting her in harm’s way.
But danger finds Michelle anyway when she’s suddenly attacked. If they go to the sheriff, they’ll reveal her location, but if they do nothing . . . their troubles have only just begun.
