Publisher Description

Two widows, six kiddos, and a will that leaves them a massive cattle ranch, but only if they work it for a year. 

Abigail and Amanda may have married brothers, but they have almost nothing else in common (and really, they never did get along very well). After their husbands both pass away, they have no reason to interact. Their connection drops to an awkward phone call on birthdays and an exchange of holiday cards.

Until an eccentric uncle of their husbands' leaves a massive cattle ranch to the women's minor children. . . if they work the ranch themselves. A ranch that's located near a small town on the border of Wyoming that isn't too keen on outsiders.

They're both going to turn the bequest down, clearly. It's not like either of them could properly raise their kids or find love again in a backwater province like Birch Creek. But when things at home change dramatically—for both moms—they decide to give it a try. . . just for the summer.

What could possibly go wrong in a mere three months? (Or more importantly... what might go right?)

What are other authors saying? 

Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Pamela Kelley said, "B. E. Baker takes you right to the heart of the small town that two widowed sisters-in-law land in very unexpectedly. Can they survive the year they need to spend there to keep it? I really enjoyed reading Bridget's romantic women's fiction debut."

USA Today Bestselling Author, Tamie Dearen said, "B.E. Baker is an amazing storyteller! Wow! Women's fiction at its best. When you open this book, you might want some snacks handy, because you won't be able to stop until you finish. Highly recommend!"

USA Today Bestselling Author, Amelia Addler said, "A sweet, feel-good story! Loved reading about these two women forging a new life for themselves and their children with all the challenges and joys of a ranch!"
USA Today Bestselling Author, Emma St. Clair said, "I'm a huge fan of Baker's writing and this book is no exception. At once both a BIG story and one that's very intimate, you'll get two women's stories as they're forced together because of a will. Relocating to a ranch, these sisters-in-law and their families face challenges that bring them closer together and change the course of their lives. A great read if you love family sagas!"

The Bequest

Very enjoyable book about two women who have found themselves widows unexpectedly. Then their children (one has four and the other two) may inherit a ranch in Utah if they work the ranch for a year. Fun, fast-paced and hard to put down! First in a series.

Great plot, great characters

I heard the author speak about the plot line for this book on a Facebook live months ago and have been anxiously waiting since to read it.

I was not disappointed!

The plot is as good as promised and the characters are great. Humorous. Just the right touch of romance.

Can’t wait for book 2!

Great new series

I love keeping up with all new releases from B. E. Baker and I am never disappointed!! This book has lots of characters, and I’ve fallen in love with all of them already. I love when books have chapters written from different characters’ perspectives as this book does with the two sisters-in-law. This was a refreshing read and I can’t wait for the rest of the books in the series.
