A Place Called Rainwater
By Dorothy Garlock 

     Twenty-year old Jill Jones is the youngest of the Jones clan of Fertile, Missouri. Growing up with all brothers has toughed her skin so that she knows how to stand her ground and fight for what she believes is right. She readily agrees to answer the distress call of her ailing Aunt Justine by agreeing to go to Rainwater, Oklahoma to help run her thriving Byers Hotel. In a town famous for its oil, the men out number the women. Jill finds that she must be made out of steel in order for her to survive against the local rowdies. During one heated altercation, she is furious when Thad Taylor steps in and tries to defend her honor. In no uncertain terms, she set him back on his heels by letting him know that she doesn’t need or want his interference in her life. When circumstances change, will she find herself running to the protection of Thad’s arms?

     Thad Taylor hardly recognizes his best friend’s little sister as the beautiful independent woman before his eyes. Her fiery temper is evident as she holds her own with some of the local roughnecks. His protective nature summons him to her side to help rescue her from the mob. What he didn’t count on was the little hellcat turning on him by sinking her sharp little claws into his own hide. Would it be possible to tame the tigress?

     Dorothy Garlock has a unique talent to be able to paint such a vivid realistic picture of all the books she creates. Her legendary writing style has been loved by many for generations. A Place Called Rainwater is no exception. It will easily take the reader back into the dusty turbulent times of the 1920’s. This book is packed full of very intriguing elements – murder, mystery, suspense, and dreams that beg to be revealed. I found this book to be a definite winner!
