Finding Stephanie by Susan May Warren


I do not know how I missed my day of the blog tour but somehow I did so please forgive me and here is my review.

About the book:
When she put her dreams on hold to help run the family ranch, she never imagined they would slip out of sight. Luckily for Stefanie, those dreams are about to come knocking at her door.
Lincoln Cash has gained fame and fortune on the big screen, but a crippling secret leaves him one last chance to make his mark on the movie industry. With dreams of hosting a new film festival, Lincoln intends to remodel a sprawling ranch in eastern Montana to make it the new Hollywood hot spot.
Unfortunately, a house fire threatens his plans. So does opposition from his new neighbor Stefanie Noble, who's not thrilled about his Tinseltown changes. What Lincoln and Stefanie don't know is that the fire won't be the last disaster to threaten Lincoln or his future. Someone is out for revenge... but who? And who is the real target?

My Review: I loved this book. It is third and last in the Noble family trilogy. First is Nick's story then Rafe's and last but not least Stephanie. Her story has romance, some suspense, and a little intrigue. Stephanie has always held down the fort and it leaves her wondering if she has missed something. Also enter Linc Cash movie star who has come back to build on a ranch he just bought to find it in flames when he arrives. The guilty party is a family of three only one of them an adult. This family is on the run and Stephanie takes up for them and brings them to live at her house on the Noble Ranch. Linc is back for more than one reason including health problems. Linc had one conversation with Stephanie last summer but still remembers it and was hoping to kindle a romance with her but he finds out people are not always who you expect them to be and do what you expect them do. Susan May Warren does a great job of weaving subplots through the main story. I did not want to put this book down. It is a great end to the Noble family trilogy. I highly recommend it and the whole trilogy. :)
