A Rancher to Trust | Book Review + Giveaway

JustRead Publicity Tours


Searching for forgiveness…and a future.

Suddenly a husband…and a father?

This bachelor is ready to claim his instant family.

After learning his ex-wife isn’t so ex after all, rebel turned rancher Dan Whitlock is determined to prove he’s a changed man…but Bailey Quinn is just as set on finally ending their marriage. When tragedy makes Dan the guardian of little orphaned twins, he and Bailey are drawn back together. But can she forgive the past and open her heart to the family she’s always wanted?

Publisher: Love Inspired
Release Date: December 17, 2019


Returning home is no easy feat for Dan Whitlock, given the man he used to be—and especially with his high-school sweetheart hoping for divorce and a couple kids suddenly depending on him. Will Dan get the second chance he needs to show the people he loves that he has changed?

Laurel Blount’s A Rancher to Trust is a sweet addition to the Love Inspired line. It delivers all the feel-good moments of faith and forgiveness that I expected to find, and I couldn’t help being caught in the emotional romance between Dan and Bailey Quinn. I bet other inspirational-romance readers will, too, so I definitely recommend it to those looking for a quick, enjoyable read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Laurel Blount lives on a small farm in middle Georgia with her husband, their four children, and an assortment of very spoiled animals. She divides her time between farm chores, homeschooling, and writing. She’s busy, but she’s never bored!

Laurel writes inspirational contemporary romance, and A Rancher to Trust is her fourth title for Harlequin’s Love Inspired. She’s the recipient of the Georgia Romance Writers Maggie Award for Excellence and has been a finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writer’s Carol Award, the Holt Medallion, and the New England Reader’s Choice Award. She’s represented by Jessica Alvarez of Bookends Literary Agency.

Whenever she’s not working, you can find Laurel with a cup of tea at her elbow, a cat in her lap, and a good book in her hand.
