Crystal Clark arrives in Colorado's Yampa Valley amid the splendor of a high country June in 1892. After the death of her father, Crystal is relieved to be leaving the troubles of her Georgia life behind to visit her aunt Kate's cattle ranch. Despite being raised as a proper Southern belle, Crystal is determined to hold her own in this wild land--even if a certain handsome foreman doubts her abilities.
Just when she thinks she's getting a handle on the constant male attention from the cowhands and the catty barbs from some of the local young women, tragedy strikes the ranch. Crystal will have to tap all of her resolve to save the ranch from a greedy neighboring landowner. Can she rise to the challenge? Or will she head back to Georgia defeated?
Book one in the Heart of the West series, No Place for a Lady is full of adventure, romance, and the indomitable human spirit. Readers will fall in love with the Colorado setting and the spunky Southern belle who wants to claim it as her own.

Too sad... But still really good
It was really good. But it was a little too sad for my liking. But if I could choose again... I would definitely read it.
No Place for a Lady
I never read a book where I didn't care for either of the main characters...until now. Luke was a jerk. And Crystal had potential but... There was so much unwarranted anger throughout the book. And the adjective overload was almost unbearable.
No place for A Lady
This was a very good book. Once I began reading it, I couldn't put it down.
I stayed up all night reading it to find out how the ending would turn out.
It is a must read as are all of Janette Oke books.
