Her Mountain Refuge by Laurel Blount

Her Mountain Refuge

Going home could mean risking her heart…

She needs help to start over…

But can she ever trust again?

Widowed, pregnant and under her controlling mother-in-law’s thumb, Charlotte Tremaine needs help—but she doesn’t expect it to come from her estranged childhood best friend. Yet after a fainting spell lands her in the hospital, Sheriff Logan Carter whisks her away to his foster mother’s mountain home to recover. But when her secrets follow, can she face her painful past with Logan at her side?

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.


Sometimes, going home is just what we need, and this is the case with Charlotte Tremaine. Home to Cedar Ridge, Georgia---the place where she first became friends with Logan Carter and his foster mother, Ruby. Now, it may be the place where she can escape her domineering mother-in-law and find a safe haven until her baby is born.

Oh, how I loved this story! Her Mountain Refuge covers so many relevant topics: spousal abuse, foster care, and trying to find your way when life seems overpowering. It is also, however, a sweet story of enduring friendship and the power of hope, with characters that you won't forget. Charlotte needs help, Logan is an amazing hero who's ready to sacrifice all, and then, there's Ruby. She may not have given birth to her foster children, but no mother has ever loved more! She's also a confirmed matchmaker in need of a new couple to unite!!!

Her Mountain Refuge is a lovely inspirational romance, and I can't wait to go back to Cedar Ridge, Georgia. I need to see what Ruby has in store for her other foster children. Great job, Laurel Blount!

I received a copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation for a favorable review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Laurel Blount lives on a small farm in middle Georgia with her husband, their four children, and an assortment of very spoiled animals. She divides her time between farm chores, homeschooling, and writing. She's busy, but she's never bored!

Laurel writes inspirational contemporary romance, and A Rancher to Trust is her fourth title for Harlequin’s Love Inspired. She’s the recipient of the Georgia Romance Writers Maggie Award for Excellence and has been a finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writer’s Carol Award, the Holt Medallion, and the New England Reader’s Choice Award. She’s represented by Jessica Alvarez of Bookends Literary Agency.

Whenever she's not working, you can find Laurel with a cup of tea at her elbow, a cat in her lap, and a good book in her hand.
