Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight,
O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
– Psalm 19:14
Who says a woman can’t keep a secret?
It’s 1918, and Daphne McKinley, heiress to a small fortune, has found contentment in the town of Bethlehem Springs. But Daphne has a secret.
A series of dime novels loosely based on local lore and featuring a nefarious villain known as Rawhide Rick has enjoyed modest popularity among readers. Nobody in Bethlehem Springs knows the man behind the stories … except Daphne.
When newspaperman Joshua Crawford comes to town searching for the man who sullied the good name of his grandfather, Daphne finds herself at a crossroads, reassessing the power of her words, re-thinking how best to honor her gifts, and reconsidering what she wants out of life.

In the third Sisters of Bethlehem Springs book, the characters are smart, feisty and do not care a hoot about what society thinks of them. Hatcher always pleases readers with her portrayal of strong, independent women. — RT Book Reviews
What a fun novel and what a perfect wrap up to the The Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series! The story and the characters, all told with a subtle sense of humor, made it difficult to put down the book until I’d hit that last page. Then I sighed. I sighed because I was sad to bid this series good-bye and sighed with satisfaction at the perfect conclusion to the book and the series. Readers can read each book alone, but I highly recommend this series from beginning to end. Fun, entertaining and with characters not easily forgotten. — Author’s Choice Reviews
