The Miner's Lady

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 mining families. Yet, unable to resist Isabelle's pleas, Chantel agrees to help her sister spend time with Orlando...only to have a run-in with Dante - Orlando's brother.

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?

This is the third book in Tracie Peterson's Land of Shining Water series. I have read the first book and this one but not the second one and I don't believe you lose anything if you don't read them all - they really do seem to be stand alone books.

The Calarco family is headed up by a stubborn father, tempered by a compassionate mother-in-law living with two young men, one trying to honor his father and keep his younger brother in line and the younger brother who is so in love he cares nothing for the feuds of the past.

The Panetta family also perpetuates the feud, even though no one really seems to know the exact reason for the feud as it is decades old.

And then Isabelle and Orlando fall in love.

Chantel and Dante are thrown together as she attempts to support the relationship and he tries to stop it. And sparks fly. But will they too attempt to bridge the gap or will the feud be too much for all of them?

This was a really great read. Thoroughly enjoyable.
