REVIEW: Rugged and Relentless by Kelly Eileen Hake

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Kelly Eileen Hake and her publisher for sending me an electronic copy of "Rugged and Relentless" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this opportunity and their generosity.

“Rugged and Relentless” by Kelly Eileen Hake is a wonderful adventure about a group of women who, due to tragic circumstances and courageous character, travel to Hope Falls to begin a lumber business. This sweet and rugged romance is set against a dynamic backdrop of rugged beauty. When the ladies place an advertisement in the local paper for husbands, men begin flocking to their door to fill the bill. Novels like these serve as reminders of the strength and character and pioneering spirit that build this nation into the great country that it is. It makes me wonder if anything remotely like this ever took place in reality.

Evelyn Thompson is a fabulous cook who is taking her cast iron skillet on the road. Her memorable meals have made quite an impression on many men…including Jacob Granger. He is a logger-turned-bounty hunter searching for the man who killed his brother. When his search leads him back to Evelyn, is it a sign that they are meant for each other? This story is loaded with romance and suspense and makes for a refreshing and enjoyable tale loaded with mishaps and charming twists. This book is a keeper.
