Note: Stand alone read. 2nd of Montana Mavericks: Rust Creek Cowboys multi-author series.
GOOD READ. Well written, endearing storyline, appealing characters, and a colorful cast of secondary characters. HOWEVER, if you like it hot and lusty you will be disappointed. This is a sweet, gentle, romance dealing with old fashioned, small town mores.
THE STORY revolves around Shelby Jenkins, still trying to live down a naive tryst with the local high school football hero resulting in a pregnancy at age sixteen. Trying to excuse his own behavior, he trashes her reputation and gains the sympathy of many of the town's judgmental, gossipy residents.
As the story unfolds, a devastating flood has destroyed most of the town, and quiet, kind-hearted, book worm, Dean Pritchett, has come to town with the first wave of volunteers to help demolish and rebuild damaged buildings. Shelby, now working full time as a bartender at the local watering hole, has spent the intervening years completing a college degree and parenting an imaginative, precocious, little five-year old princess, named Caitlin. Still playing defense, Shelby is understandably reluctant to let Dean into her life, but his sweet patience and persistence is what makes this book special.
OVERALL, the easy writing style, engaging plot, and endearing characters, make this book a charming read.
Books in the series include, Marooned with the Maverick, Maverick's Summer Love, The Maverick & the Manhattanite, Marrying Dr. Maverick, A Maverick Under the Mistletoe, and The Maverick's Christmas Baby.
For sweet, funny, heart touching romances with great descriptive imagery, try Susan Fox, Cara Colter, D. Browning, J. Greene, and E. Palfrey. You may also enjoy the complex characters and storytelling of N. Bruhns, A. Stuart, L. L. Miller, and R. C. Ryan.
I am betting that it will be a part of a series. There seemed to be a lot of side characters that were thrown in randomly.
