Book Review: Wyoming Proud by Diana Palmer


Book Description

A sudden romance leads to betrayal and a shocking secret…

It takes one night for Erianne Mitchell to fall heart-first for dashing architect Ty Mosby. They work together and have friends in common—and a searing attraction that seems far too good to last.

But when a devastating mistake tears them apart, Erianne flees to Wyoming with a secret, one she hopes Ty never discovers. She did nothing wrong, and she’ll never ask Ty to forgive her. She'll support herself…and the baby growing inside her. How can she be with a man who doesn’t trust her?

Ty knows exactly what he’s lost and he’ll do anything to beg for her forgiveness and win back her trust. When he finds her, she’s just as proud as he remembers. Is it too late for him to make amends…or is destiny about to test them in an even bigger way?

My Review

This is book 12 in the Wyoming Men series by Diana Palmer and I have been enjoying all of these books. I love the characters, the storylines and how so many people know each other in these small towns. So many of the previous characters seem to pop up in the books and I like being able to see what they've been up to. 

Erianne/Erin has been friends with Annie and her brother Ty for a long time. They are like family and Erin has been working for Ty at his company for a long time. When a bid goes wrong and Ty finds out that someone went behind his back and betrayed him, he hires a detective agency to find out who did it. When they tell him it was Erin, he doesn't go digging to see if they were right, he just fires her and tells her not to contact his sister again. That was a little shocking seeing how they have all been friends for so long and he is easily able to believe that she could do that.

Poor Erin has a really hard time of it and Ty just keeps making things harder for her. She loses everything and ends up leaving town to live with a distant cousin when she finds out she's pregnant with Ty's baby. After what he did, I wouldn't have even told my cousin who the father really was because he never would have seen me again. She was down and out and he just kept making things harder for her. I thought this guy was a total jerk for the longest time and smiled when he realized what he lost and how heart broken he was. He deserved that and more, for a longer period of time. I don't see how she'll ever trust him again but she's made of stronger stuff than I am because she loves him even after he hurt her emotionally when she was already hurting. 

All these bad things kept happening to Erin and I kept expecting to see her fall apart but she never did, she just took it all in stride and kept going. 

There were a few deaths in this book and that was sad to see. But I loved this book and will definitely be reading more of this series when the books come out. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Disclosure: I was given an e-ARC of this book via NetGalley but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
