The Miner's Lady by Tracie Peterson

I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The Miner's Lady by Tracie Peterson
Land of the Shining Water #3
Trade Paperback
ISBN: 9780764206214
Published: September 1, 2013

Synopsis: When Chantel Panetta's younger sister claims to be in love with Orlando Calarco. Chantel knows there is no hope. The Panettas and Calarcos have been sworn enemies for decades, and young love cannot heal the deep wounds between the two iron-mining families. Yet, unable to resist Isabella's pleas, Chantel agrees to help her sister spend time with Orlando...only to have a run-in wit Dante, Orlando's brother. The older, more handsome one.
Chantel can't deny the attraction that flares when she's with Dante. But when a tragedy occurs at the mine is there any hope that the hatred that has simmered between these two families might be resolved? Or will Chantel's hope for love be buried amidst decades of misunderstanding?

My review: This has been a great series to read and I love the history of Minnesota and all the families we have met along the way. In this story the family feud reminded of the long standing feud between the Hatfields and the Mccoys which I have always been intrigued by. As always Tracie's characters are very strong. In this book we also got a touch of Italy which I enjoyed. The author also does a good job of describing each scene so you feel as if you are right there in the moment. I also enjoyed the romance aspect of the book. A must read.
