Jaclyn Hawkes is likely my favorite Indie author. She has written a slew of books, mostly romance, very clean with religious overtones. She has a historical book Warrior's Moon A Love Story. I stumbled into her by reading The Most Important Catch. I'veenjoyed everything I've read by her, and I highly recommend reading her books.
In The Outer Edge of Heaven, Charlie decides to go help out on a ranch over the summer instead of taking on a high powered internship. Charlie wants something different from what her parents want from her, and this book is about how Charlie finds her way. Of course there is a very swoon worthy leading man involved as well. Have you read anything by Jaclyn Hawkes? What did you think?
Just a heads up, she writes LDS fiction, and some of her books are a bit heavy handed when it comes to religious themes. If that's going to bother you, you may want to steer clear of the Rockland Ranch series, where it is a lot more prevalent, other books it's not as strong. If that's not going to bother you, each of the books in that series is fantastic, and well worth reading.
