Claiming Mariah – Book Review

Looking for a wonderful Western romance to immerse yourself in? Pam Hillman recently released her second book – Claiming Mariah – and she’s wrangled up a winner!

Get ready to be transported back to 1882, to the town of Wisdom, Wyoming…

Since her father’s death, Mariah Malone has been taking care of her grandmother and sister while running the Lazy M Ranch. Times have been tough due to a series of misfortunes that have occurred since her father’s passing. But nothing has prepared her for the shock of what’s about to come…

When Mariah’s father makes a deathbed confession, Mariah does what any good Christian would do: she writes the man her father wronged and seeks forgiveness on behalf of her father, hoping they can reconcile their differences before he passes.

If only she hadn’t written that letter…

Slade Donovan is haunted by his father’s death and bitter about his family’s heartbreaking past. So – when he receives Mariah’s letter – he sets out to claim what is rightfully his. He could care less about the repercussions of telling Mariah the truth about her father and what forcing Mariah and her family to leave the ranch will mean…

That is, until he gets to know Mariah.

With bad blood running thick between their two families, there is little that Mariah and Slade have in common – except a mutual interest in the welfare of the Lazy M Ranch and a growing attraction between each other that they are both trying hard to ignore.

But – when they discover that the series of misfortunes that has befallen the ranch might not be due to random chance, but to a treacherous conspiracy by those they trusted – they must put aside their differences and work together to save the ranch and protect the ones they love.

Claiming Mariah has much to offer: a gorgeous cover, a fast-moving plot, engaging characters, and well-written dialog. I found myself willingly whisked away to Wisdom from the very start – savoring the suspenseful unfolding of the story throughout – and left wanting to read more about Mariah and Slade’s siblings in the future!

I thoroughly enjoyed Claiming Mariah and look forward to reading more books from Pam Tillman in the future.

I rate this book 4 ½ out of 5 stars.

About Pam Hillman

Pam Hillman

Pam Hillman was born and raised on a dairy farm in Mississippi and spent her teenage years perched on the seat of a tractor raking hay. In those days, her daddy couldn’t afford two cab tractors with air conditioning and a radio, so Pam drove the Allis Chalmers 110. Even when her daddy asked her if she wanted to bale hay, she told him she didn’t mind raking. Raking hay doesn’t take much thought so Pam spent her time working on her tan and making up stories in her head. Now, that’s the kind of life every girl should dream of!
