Ranger to the Rescue Celebrate Lit Tour and Giveaway

My Thoughts

Ranger to the Rescue by author Renae Brumbaugh Green is Book #2 in her The Texas Rangers Series.  Bringing back beloved characters from Book #1, this historical western is certain to please readers.  The sweet romance paired with danger and mystery make this a captivating tale.

I enjoy the style of writing that author Green has.  It is very descriptive and takes me from my loveseat to the dusty old west in the 1800s.  The characters are believable.  Each one is like a new friend.  Their personalities are unique and priceless.  I enjoyed the conversations they had.  They sounded authentic and not forced.

Amelia is a fearless news reporter with a broken heart from a losing a loved one to the dangers of being a lawman.  Evan is an attorney newly named town Ranger.  He has asked Amelia to have permission to begin courting her.

Lives are in danger and turned upside down when Evan’s sister and Amelia are kidnapped.  The emotions are high and I was captivated by this story.  It was a true page turner as I read on and on to see if the girls would be rescued.

The author included many life lessons in her inspiring novel.  Relying on God and his love for us is the first one.   Trusting in Him is a second one.  This is a story of redemption, forgiveness, and grace.  The inspiration is wonderful.

I highly recommend this beautiful story.  Even though it is Book #2, readers that haven’t read Book #1 will have no trouble  following it.  It gets a 5 out of 5 stars from me.  A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit, but these are my own thoughts.

About the Book

Book:  Ranger to the Rescue

Author: Renae Brumbaugh Green

 Genre:  Christian Historical Romance

Release Date: April 14, 2020

Amelia Cooper has sworn off lawmen for good.

Now any man who wants to claim the hand of the intrepid reporter had better have a safe job. Like attorney Evan Covington. Amelia is thrilled when the handsome lawyer comes courting. But when the town enlists him as a Texas Ranger, Amelia isn’t sure she can handle losing another man to the perils of keeping the peace.

Evan never expected his temporary appointment to sink his relationship with Amelia. Or to instantly plunge them headlong into danger. But when Amelia and his sister are both kidnapped, the newly minted lawman must rescue them—if he’s to have any chance at love.

About the Author

Renae Brumbaugh Green is a city-girl-turned-country-diva. She’s married to a handsome country boy named Rick, and she’s mom to four nearly-perfect, nearly-grown children, two rowdy dogs, and some ducks. They live in rural Texas where Renae wears overalls, western boots, and bubblegum pink nail polish. She’s a bestselling author of over 30 books, an award-winning humor columnist, and an online English teacher. In her free time, she can be found leaping tall buildings and rescuing kittens from trees. Or, she’d like to do those things, if she had free time.

More from Renae

Every once in a while, when writing a character, I become vaguely aware that in many respects, I am that character. In those moments, I also become aware that God is the author, and he’s teaching me something through this particular character’s journey. After all, it’s a lot easier to learn through someone else’s mistakes than to recognize our own mistakes – especially if that someone else is a fictional character.

Amelia’s journey is one of fear and anxiety, which is something I’ve dealt with a lot. Like Amelia, I appear composed and confident on the surface. Like Amelia, I’m often a mess on the inside, scared to death of what will come, scared to death of how it will all turn out.

While writing this story, while dealing with Amelia’s anxiety, I (all-knowing author that I am) wrote that fear is the opposite of hope. Fear is the belief that something bad will happen, while hope is the belief that something good will happen. The Bible tells us that ours is a God of hope (Romans 15:13). When we truly trust Him, we can let go of fear, knowing He has good things in store for us.

At one point in the book, Amelia has this revelation:

“And suddenly, it was as if a haze lifted and she saw herself clearly for the first time. She’d let herself be ruled by fear, and in so doing had confined herself and clipped her own wings.”

Those words, disguised on the page as Amelia’s thoughts, were actually my thoughts. I hope you enjoy Amelia’s journey. And as you read, I hope you’ll remember these words from Isaiah 41:10: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

God bless, and happy reading!
