Men are optional. That was the credo Emma Chandler’s suffragette aunts taught her and why she established Harper’s Station, a women’s colony that offers a fresh start to females in need. But when a dangerous and shadowy assailant tries repeatedly to drive the women out, Emma is forced to admit they might need a man after all. One who can fight. And there is only one man she trusts enough to ask.
Malachi Shaw has finally earned the respect he’s always craved by becoming an explosives expert for the railroad. Yet when Emma’s telegram arrives, he rushes back to Texas to repay the girl who once saved his life. Only she’s not a girl any longer. She’s a woman with a mind of her own and a smile that makes a man imagine a future he doesn’t deserve.
As the danger intensifies, Emma, Mal, and the ladies of Harper’s Station must choose between safety or risking everything to fight for their future.
“Witemeyer’s latest is an entertaining read with plenty of drama and action, a smidgen of suspense and two main characters with perfect chemistry . . . And of course, the romance is tender and sigh-worthy—a key reason why her readers keep coming back for more.”

I loved this book. I loved the story between the characters, the independent nature of Emma and the aunts, and the misunderstandings that arise from not talking to one another about what’s on one’s mind. I loved Harper’s Station and what it stood for. Emma’s heart is so big and caring, and her spirit so strong, I was rooting for her the whole time. And let’s not forget the romance. That long, drawn-out pull that the characters just keep trying to ignore, but ultimately can’t.
No Other Will Do has a full cast of varied and complex characters that work together to strengthen one another and work towards their common goals.
There were a few words that I wondered if they would really be used in the time the story was set, but they didn’t detract from the story, and I didn’t bother to research them. Not a big deal.
The inspirational message in this book is strong, and if that’s what you like to read for, you will not be disappointed in the reminders within.
I’d rate this book 4 stars, and totally recommend reading it.
*I received a free ebook for review from NetGalley for this review. It does not affect my opinion.
