REVIEW: Tall, Dark and Determined 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 "Tall, Dark and Determined" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this opportunity and their generosity. “Tall, Dark and Determined” by Kelly Eileen Hake is Book Two in the Husbands For Hire Series. In this second novel of Hope Falls, Colorado, the gals we’ve come to adore in Book One, “Rugged and Relentless”, are back, trying to make a go of a sawmill, having advertised in the newspaper for experienced loggers and potential husbands.
