In the town of Glenmore, Texas, Ambrose Glenmore is known for his wealth and ruthless dealings. His daughter, Gean, is to be his successor. However, she has reservations. She meets Bo Hackney, a local ranch hand, and they begin to date, but her father doesn’t know about it because Ambrose doesn’t think highly of Bo. Smitten, Bo asks Gean to marry him. Elsewhere, Billie Dwyer, Gean’s best friend, dreams of a life of luxury. And, as time passes, you realize she’ll do anything to get it. Will Bo and Gean have a happily ever after? Does Billie get the life she wants? And, will Ambrose get his daughter to do as he wishes… only time will tell…
Author Janet K. Shawgo has created a story with a captivating plot and intriguing characters. The characters in the story are well-developed and likable. Gean is sweet and brave, and her relationship with Bo is one that I was rooting for. Bo is sweet, smart, tough, and has an interesting yet sad backstory. Leroy Grinder, who is, in many ways, Bo’s father, is also a character that I enjoyed reading about.
The pace of the story is smooth, and the author provides just enough backstory for the characters to keep you hooked. Shawgo takes the readers on a shocking and emotional roller coaster, and I look forward to reading more from this author.
It’s For The Best takes readers on a suspense-filled journey as the town’s dark history threatens those who have kept it hidden. Janet. K. Shawgo immerses readers into life in Texas with characters that you will love and some that will shock you. I recommend It’s For The Best to those who enjoy a thrilling story that will have you on edge waiting to see if the town can be saved before it is too late.
