Book Description

June 1 2009 The Brides of Gallatin County (Book 3)
Lacy Gallatin, the youngest of the Gallatin sisters, is a woman with a mission: to find her father's killer. Haunted by the belief that she's failed him, Lacy is also battling a desire to have something more than just revenge, something she can't quite figure out. Enter Dave Shepard, deputy sheriff for the area. Dave has been fervently trying to find the man who killed George Gallatin, but he always feels inadequate when it comes to the beautiful Lacy. When they are together, the tension crackles between them--both when they argue and when they kiss. Lacy finds him frustratingly irresistible...but is it truly love?

Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Lacy crossed the room to the small dressing table and sat down. She looked at her reflection in the mirror and wondered why the woman who stared back looked so terrified. "It's just a storm," she said and began taking down her hair. But she knew it was more than the storm. Her thoughts were betraying her. She had feelings for Dave she couldn't explain--feelings she was terrified to explore. When had he become something more than an irritation in her life? When had he changed from the roadblock to finding her father's killer to a man who made her heart race and knees grow weak? Will Lacy find the courage to set aside her need for justice in time to embrace the love her heart yearns for?

This is the last installment of the Brides of Gallatin County and when I saw this title among other ones that needed some review, I just had to get my hands on it since I have reviewed books one and two previously. * grin* Besides, I wanted to know more about the characters especially Lacy since this book revolve around her and Dave Sheppard.
I really enjoyed reconnecting with the characters of this series. It was nice to read more about Gwen and Beth, their families and friends. I was curious if and when Lacy will see that Dave is the man for her and how the story will continue. I wasn't disappointed.
First, Lacy is still searching for the person who killed her dad. And after various events in the Gallatin house, you come at peace concerning this subject. More events will keep on the edge and you will read this book in a flash. It was difficult at times to put the book down to tend to other duties. I really appreciate that when an author makes sure that there is enough "meat around the bone" when they are writing a book. And it's even better when the meat is realistic - if you know what I mean!
The author even took the time to write an epilogue in the book. This epilogue happens 5 years after the happy ending on the book. I was happy to have tidbits of news from the three sisters and their neighbors and friends. It was nice to see that their life wasn't plagues with negative people around them anymore as well as peace finally. I had a smile on my face when I read the sisters commenting on the telephone being available in every house someday - if only they knew that this was just the grand-father of the cell phones... LOL! Would they be able to imagine people carrying their phone one them? I doubt it...
A Dream To Call My Own is a wonderful read while you are on vacation. I read it during our own vacation and I found the book refreshing. I was able to escape in a different world every time I was able to pick it up to pursue my reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Author's Best Dec 10 2009
By Deborah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The final book of the Brides of Gallatin brings an end to the series of these three sisters. It's finally time to tell Lacy's tale and see the struggles she's felt since the day her father died. She's been handling everything alone and keeping it from her sisters. Honestly I just really could not get into this story. I enjoyed it for an easy afternoon read but I didn't really moved or inspired by it. There were times when I got frustrated with the characters and their actions. I have never been a fan of Cubby since the first book and this book only solidifies my reasons. Even though Lacy is very able to take care of herself, she's very stubborn and extremely strong willed. I'm not saying that she needed a man to look out for her, but being on her own is not the best for her as she does not make smart decisions. I really didn't feel chemistry between her and Dave. It's too much of the "oh I shouldn't have done that" after a kiss type of deal which I loathe. Also the historical aspect of the book is downplayed. The story just takes places back in the day, any historical events are not really a factor in the book.

To be honest, I really did not think this was Tracie's best series. The characters didn't really stick with me and I never really felt like I could get into the story. There's a lot of stereotypes of women and the West in general that take place in this book. Also the storyline seemed very predictable and sometimes a bit too unbelievable. I felt like I knew what was going to happen as soon as I started reading. That being said though, I did enjoy this book because I always enjoy Tracie's books. Even with its faults, it still makes for comfort reading because I know I'm going to be in for a good story. The novel might have had its faults but it does make for a good read. I just hope that future books will be a bit more enlightening!

Well written, suspenseful to the end. A believable story about how Montana was settled in the 1800's. Would make s good western movie.

I love the characters & their closeness to each other. I love when a series has the same characters through all the books in that series.

A great Christian romance novel set in a much simpler time. It is quite evident the author did her research.
