No Other Will Do by Karen Witemeyer - Review of the first book in the Ladies of Harper's Station

She Trusts Him for the Job,
But Can She Trust Him With Her Heart?

Men are optional. That was the credo Emma Chandler's suffragette aunts taught her and why she established Harper's Station, a women's colony that offers a fresh start to females in need. But when a dangerous and shadowy assailant tries repeatedly to drive the women out, Emma is forced to admit they might need a man after all. One who can fight. And there is only one man she trusts enough to ask.

Malachi Shaw has finally earned the respect he's always craved by becoming an explosives expert for the railroad. Yet when Emma's telegram arrives, he rushes back to Texas to repay the girl who once saved his life. Only she's not a girl any longer. She's a woman with a mind of her own and a smile that makes a man imagine a future he doesn't deserve.

As the danger intensifies, Emma, Mal, and the ladies of Harper's Station must choose safety or whether to risk everything to fight for their future.

Karen is one of my favorite authors and with this book, she reminds me why. Have you ever heard of an all woman town in historical times, I hadn't, and it makes a great story. All I can say is, if you haven't read any of Karen's work, give this book a try. I'm guessing who the next book will feature so I'm anxious to see if I'm right!
