Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . . not for a cowboy to steal her heart.
Having lived through her parents’ endless string of “matrimonial bliss gone wrong,” Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She’s been bucked off that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt’s footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.
Rancher Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He’s pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that’s a challenge that Jarrod can’t pass up.
Jarrod sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy’s stubborn heart. How can he show her that a cowboy’s kiss lasts forever? For the good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much fun to witness.
I always look forward to reading books by Debra Clopton. This is a fun series and I am loving it. This series is about brothers, sticking together, working together and saving their ranch. There is such a sense of home and family in these books. And who can resist a handsome cowboy?
For Cassidy and Jarrod, this is a story of re-connection and a second chances. Jarrod sees Cassidy as his second chance at love and happiness. Cassidy views her return as a second chance at happiness and independence- without love. Cassidy is super stubborn when it comes to love but I can't help but be impressed with her hard work and vision. Jarrod's drive and determination to show Cassidy he is her forever is so endearing. He is one patient man. I love how he always tries to help and support Cassidy in her dreams and doesn't try to detract from what she is trying to accomplish.
It is always fabulous to see previous book characters show up as sort of a side continuation. I love seeing good things happen for the characters I came to love in previous books.
