This is a new author for me, and based on her website, her first published book as well. I read enough to be a bit weary of first timers, but I am so glad I ignored that and purchased this book.
Set on a ranch in Montana, the premise is two people find each other again after a nine year separation and a lot of “life” getting in the way. Throw in a young kid, a fear of cooking, and the main characters Mason and Dean try to find a balance between what used to be and what can be now.
Overall, the story is a nice one – more of a romantic tale than anything else, but it’s a good read. There were several parts that seemed to be glossed over for no reason while other seemingly benign things took up more pages than needed (and one plot line that I don’t think was solved). But it’s all forgivable because the characters are relatable and loveable – and you’re cheering for them to figure it all out.
This is a good read for someone who wants a romance read – there isn’t really any heat in it, so great for first-timers. If you’re looking for hot cowboy action, this isn’t the read for you.
Out of four…
