Retreat to Shelter Creek - Lee Carver

Retreat to Shelter Creek
Book starts out with Ashley and she's back in town, helping her grandmother, living at her place while she goes through chemo for cancer. She also is getting divorced from her husband as he's taken up with a woman who he got pregnant. He also closed out all her accounts which were her earnings.
Story also follows Austin who has a son who lost his wife to cancer. He's the roofer and he wants the pig also as he hopes to breed with several of his.  He has family land problems after his father had passed away and others tell him their father told them they could have the land after raising crops on it for ten years. He and his brother and mother can't find any documents stating that or deeds...
Ashley decides to take on the first grade teaching position as she is broke and other arrangements have been made for her grandmother's care. Love mysteries surrounding all the devastation that occur and clues leading up to who caused it...
Love how the community is there for anybody who needs the help. Love the career of Austin as the details are so explicit and oil exploration information you know the author has done her homework correctly.
Feel so at home with this book as we had picnics in our travels with our own food-such good memories.  Lots more twists and turns to this story. so much action, romance, adventure and scriptures and passages posted about the immediate problems they are each trying to get help with.
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
I was given the book by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review.
