Wednesday's Favorites: Baxter's Draw by Juliette Harper

Welcome to Maureen's Books Wednesday's Favorites. In the Wednesday's Favorites post I will talk about a book I loved and that I think deserves a little more attention. I read popular books, but also many books that aren’t so popular (yet). In this post all sorts of books from all sorts of genre’s will have a chance to shine. Today’s Wednesday's Favorites is 'Baxter's Draw' by Juliette Harper, a book I read in April 2015. 

The Book: rancher Langston Lockwood died leaving his three daughters with an inheritance of secrets, lies, and mysteries. The family ranch, the Rocking L, includes a lonely box canyon called Baxter's Draw, which may be the key to a hidden Spanish treasure.

Still reeling from their father's suspicious suicide, Kate, Jenny, and Mandy are determined to discover the truth about Baxter's Draw.

Did their grandfather really steal that part of the family's land from their neighbors and rivals, the Baxters?

According to the story long told in their small town, the land changed hands during a crooked poker game.

Could there be something in Baxter's Draw worth fighting and dying over?

Professor Jake Martin thinks the Lockwood ranch may be the key to solving the legend of Jim Bowie's lost silver mine.

But it's not just the girls who want the secrets at the heart of Langston Lockwood's legacy to be revealed.

Outsiders trespassing on the land seem determined to go to any lengths to get what they want, even if that means striking at the heart of all the Lockwood sisters hold dear.

Praise for 'Baxter's Draw':

Baxter's Draw is a nicely written story about family and relationships that incorporated mystery nicely. It's a really good read.

This book was a short southern romantic suspense novel building again on the ties of family. With two books under my belt on this series, I have enjoyed them immensely.

This book is filled with mystery but most of all with love and family. I loved reading about the sisters and how they searched for more answers about their estranged father. I loved how they became a family again, together with the men in their life.

About the Author:

Juliette Harper is the pen name used by the writing team of Patricia Pauletti and Rana K. Williamson. As a writer, Juliette's goal is to create strong female characters facing interesting, challenging, painful, and at times comical situations. Refusing to be bound by genre, her primary interest lies in telling good stories.

Pauletti, an Easterner of Italian descent, is an accomplished musician with an eye for art and design. Williamson, a Texan from a long line of hardheaded Scots, knows the world of the Lockwoods like the back of her hand.

  1. Thank you so much, Maureen. We've taken a year off from the Lockwoods to launch a new series, The Jinx Hamilton Mysteries. It's a fun mix of paranormal and fantasy that some people are kindly calling Harry Potter for adults. Hope you have a chance to check it out. The sixth book in the series is about to come out. We'll be getting back to book 7 of The Lockwood Legacy some time in 2017. Happy holidays!

    1. You're very welcome Juliette. Thanks for stopping by!
      I'll definitely keep your new series in mind. Maybe I can check it out next year ;)
