Welcome to Thistle Bend! Perfect for fans of Susan Mallery, this charming series debut introduces a small town where old secrets are revealed—and wounded hearts are opened to new love.

A year after being laid off from the Smithsonian, Lindsey Simms says yes to a job offer as curator of a heritage museum in Thistle Bend, Colorado (population 1,519). It could be worse—and it is. Because the new museum has escalated a dispute between the Karlssons, Lindsey’s relatives, and the Crenshaws, a blood feud which goes way back to a land deal that changed the fortunes of both families. Trying to stay objective, Lindsey can’t tell anyone about her conflict of interest—especially not the ruggedly handsome handyman fixing up her cabin, who seems to be keeping secrets of his own.

Although he’s the executive director of the family trust and one of Colorado’s most eligible bachelors, Carden Crenshaw prefers getting his hands dirty in town and on his sprawling ranch. Staying busy has given him an excuse not to risk heartbreak, but getting to know the beautiful “museum lady” makes him reconsider. Little does he know, the heat between them will only add fuel to the fire—unless this unlikely couple can prove they’re lovers, not fighters.


Welcome to Thistle Bend, Colorado where the beauty of the Rockies is as big as the secret fueling the towns biggest feud. Book one in this new series by Tracy March was such an enjoyable read for me! Lindsey Simms and Carden Crenshaw had great chemistry from their first meeting and it only got better as the story went along!

Lindsey has moved from DC to sit together the town’s new history museum. Carden is a part of one of the influential families in town, and Lindsey is distantly related to the other one. That fact however, is not to be widely known because part of Lindsey’s job is to uncover the town secret of the longstanding feud. What neither Lindsey nor Carden counted on was falling for the other. Now the question is will uncovering all the secrets bring them together or pull them apart?

This was my first Tracy March read, but I’m certain it won’t be my last! Just a wonderful, at times funny, always sweet and romantic with a touch of mystery thrown in for good measure feel-good read!

NetGalley provided arc in exchange for honest review.
