Garrett is a big rig truck driver that is comfortable, though not completely content with, his loner lifestyle. While helping out a friend by acting as "chauffeur" he meets up with Nicki. Nicki is a very practical rancher who still has secret dreams of prince charming. But being sensible, she has consigned herself to marry practical Lester and live comfortably ever after...
Oh this book was fun. The whole town gets involved in their romance.
Even though this is a "Love Inspired" book, there is very little talk of God. No conversions, no spiritual growth. This is a simple, clean, fun love story. Enjoy!
Garrett Hamilton wasn't a forever kind of guy. Growing up with an alcoholic father who didn't care about him at all had left Garrett without any knowledge of how marriage was supposed to be. Garrett was content to drive all across the country in his big rig. But when he helped out his cousin Chrissy by offering to serve as a temporary chauffer for her friend, Garrett met Nicki Redfern, the only woman in his life to ever make him seriously reconsider his carefree bachelor ways.
This book was really an amusing little tale about the whole town of Dry Creek trying to match up two people around the Thanksgiving holiday. I laughed out loud several times while reading this book, especially at the antics of the townspeople trying to throw Garrett and Nicki together. Both Nicki and Garrett had had a lot of hurt in their lives, and I could relate to both of them in different ways. Nicki's way of dealing with her hurt was to give up on her dreams, while Garrett's way of dealing with the pain was being afraid of commitment. Both Nicki and Garrett grew emotionally, although we watched more of Nicki's transformation than Garrett's.
Although this book is classified as inspirational, there is little mention of God anywhere, so if you are less spiritually-inclined but still enjoy reading a fun, clean romance, this is the book for you. You'll laugh and be left with a smile as you read this book. The book also has cameos of several couples who have had their own books previously, and there is another book about Reno (Nicki's brother) called "A Baby for Dry Creek." Altogether, this is a wonderfully quick and quirky read.
