Evening Star by Carolyn Brown
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
And the 3rd couple is:
A female doctor and a cranky rancher who says women can’t be doctors just like the oil company that fired her onsite are thrown together when he falls off his barn roof breaks his leg, and slices up his hand. Despite his protests, the ladies in his family hire the lady doctor to fix him up and care for him. It’s quite a story and a great continuation of the series. Look out for the serial killer near the end too!

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 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 care for him. He figured he’d died and gone straight to hell.
