Addison Carter was hired by Magnolia Oil to work as their company doctor in Healdton, Oklahoma. In 1917, oil companies didn't hire women to work for them, so that alone was quite a miracle. At least it was until she arrived from eastern Arkansas with an ego the size of Texas and dreams twice as large, only to have them all shredded to pieces in ten minutes when the directo Addison Carter was hired by Magnolia Oil to work as their company doctor in Healdton, Oklahoma. In 1917, oil companies didn't hire women to work for them, so that alone was quite a miracle. At least it was until she arrived from eastern Arkansas with an ego the size of Texas and dreams twice as large, only to have them all shredded to pieces in ten minutes when the directors of the oil company informed her they thought she was a male with a name like Addison. She was sitting on the bench outside the drugstore waiting for her ride to take her back to Ardmore to catch the train back to Arkansas when Tilly Anderson sat down beside her. In less than an hour, Addison found herself at the Evening Star ranch setting Tucker Anderson's, Tilly's cantankerous cousin, broken leg and suturing the gash in his hand. Just as suddenly, she was offered the job of caring for him until he healed. Anything beat going back to Arkansas with her deflated ego and shattered dreams so she took on the job. Tucker had his ideas about women. They should live to serve and obey the male species and, rather than endure a lifetime with one like either of his girl cousins, Tilly and Clara, he'd be a bachelor until he reached the Pearly Gates of Heaven. Then he broke his leg and the two cousins hired a female doctor to take care of him. He figured he'd died and gone straight to hell.

Now she is waiting for someone to take her to Ardmore where she can catch a train back home. Her brothers and Father will gloat since they didn’t want her to be a doctor anyway. She is a good doctor, second in her class. Won’t anyone give her a chance? As she is headed to the café for some hot chocolate, Tilly Sloan runs into her and they begin to talk.

Their cousin Tucker fell off the barn and broke his leg at least. Tilly insists that Addison come with them to the ranch and treat Tucker. She is much closer and he needs help now. Tucker might need help; but he definitely doesn’t want it, especially from a woman. He doesn’t think women should be doctors and doesn’t hesitate to tell Addison that. However, when Clara and Tilly offer her a six week job to stay at Evening Star and tend to Tucker and the chores too. Addison jumps at the chance since it means not going home. Is she tough enough to last the six weeks with Tucker? What will happen when the six weeks is over?

    This was a quick,easy read. Even though I gave it one star I still enjoyed the story ,for it is a pleasant book to read on a lazy day. The following reasons are why I gave it one star: 1. It is an unbelievable story. So many different aspects of it are so unbelievable it's almost funny. (I.e. A single,lady Doctor is hired to care for and live with a single man to help him recover. I'm not an expert on history but I'd say that was unheard of back then even though it was a "Doctor-patient" relatio This was a quick,easy read. Even though I gave it one star I still enjoyed the story ,for it is a pleasant book to read on a lazy day. The following reasons are why I gave it one star: 1. It is an unbelievable story. So many different aspects of it are so unbelievable it's almost funny. (I.e. A single,lady Doctor is hired to care for and live with a single man to help him recover. I'm not an expert on history but I'd say that was unheard of back then even though it was a "Doctor-patient" relationship. Another instance is that the leading lady plays the part of ranch hand, Doctor, and house keeper easily all by herself. Basically the whole story ,while enjoyable, is unreal.) 2. I didn't get slightly attached the the characters. They seemed one dimensional and completely fake. Also, everyone there was either extremely handsome or beautiful ,and I can only remember one person described as plain. 3. It felt very rushed. Like the author only had so many words she could say or so many pages she could fill. At least it wasn't slow though. 4. I felt completely unattached to all of it not just the characters. The story did not leave me thinking over it and studying it, I couldn't have cared less what happened to any of the characters (even the main ones),everything about it just seemed one dimensional ,I think. 5. I'm not a writer but to me the writing wasn't very well done. The sentence structure and punctuation were awkward at times. It felt like it was an amateurs first book not an award-winning author's 30th book. I won't bore you with anymore ,but I'm sure ,if I wanted to dwell on it, I could find many problems. Despite all that I'm glad I read it and would recommend it to someone on a lazy day who doesn't want to labor over a good book.

    Tried up with a ribbon If you've read the first two books of this trilogy, you know Healdon, Oklahoma, where the women are all gorgeous, the men are all rugged, and the (apparently) only child in town is perfectly behaved but sassy and inquisitive. You also know that, despite (or maybe because of) his modern cousins, Tucker Anderson hates redheads and professional women. So it will be no surprise that red-haired Addison Carter, M.D. shows up in the first sentence.

    Olden Times As I was reading this book I decided that I'm glad I wasn't growing up during that era. Being a woman during those years was very different then what we have today. Holding a job usually done by a man was basically unheard of as well as working after being married. However, the young lady who had become a doctor fought hard for her rights and won plus fell in love with a gentleman who at first believed in what was happening in those times. A very nice story. Good book. Olden Times As I was reading this book I decided that I'm glad I wasn't growing up during that era. Being a woman during those years was very different then what we have today.

    Winner! I've read so many Carolyn Brown books I've begun talking like one of her characters. This morning I told my good friend that if I had any gumption if some work done instead of reading Evening Star. I love her sassy ladies that argue with the best of them. They are intelligent, loving and not afraid to stand up for themselves . Best of all they choose men as strong as they are. All in all a great read. Winner!

    Good story but way too many errors! I enjoyed the book, enjoyed the whole series even though it was pretty repetitive. But at one point in this book the same whole paragraph repeated itself at the end of one chapter and the beginning of the next. Way too many typo’s (example: mouth instead of month). This book needs some drastic editing!

    Another great book by this author! I normally only read three or four books by an author because by that time I'm used to the author's style of writing and want a change of pace. Not so with this author. I think this is my seventh book and they have all been different. This may be the best one yet. This one had a sharp twist which I enjoyed immensely.

    Sizzling and Sassy I enjoy all of Carolyn Browns books and down to earth characters - especially the sassy females, but this story with the female doctor and the discrimination she faced, but was able to overcome and the appearance of the a Black Widow, took this story to greater depths.

    Love this book The Anderson girls found true love. Tucker didn't think love was in the cards for him. Doc met him after he fell off a roof and things happened and love conquered all.

    Love, love, love it! As I wind down the series, I am sad to see it end. I have enjoyed reading then. Each scene is written with such detail that you feel like you are a part of the story. Carolyn brown has a special gift for writing and makes you part of the story.

    Loved it. Couldn't stop reading till it was finished. Great story teller Carolyn Brown. I enjoyed the time frame and the people. This was a very good book. The time period was so realistic I had to keep reading to find the end a little too soon. Loved it. Couldn't stop reading till it was finished. Great story teller Carolyn Brown.

    I didn't want it to end This story was as good as the first two but it didn't have a wedding and it just seemed to be rushed. Would love to read more about the Anderson families.
