Dawn Comes Early, by Margaret Brownley follows dime novelist Kate Tenney. Kate’s latest book is banned in Boston and now no one will hire her. With no family or any other skills she replies to a post seeking an heiress for a cattle ranch in Arizona. Kate hopes that real ranch life is like what she wrote in her books, but quickly finds out she didn’t have a clue. However she is determined to prove herself capable.
Blacksmith Luke Adams is a distraction Kate doesn’t want, and she can’t get him from her mind. But if she is to become heiress of the ranch she must sign a contract to remain single forever.
I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Brownley’s humor and whit! My favorite line in the whole book– “It was so hot the chickens laid hard boiled eggs.” LOVE that. My apologies to Ms. Brownley if I messed up the wording. I should’ve written it down when I read it.
