I hope Thompson keeps her wonderful romances coming, because I have read every one and can't wait for more!
Jake Winslow had expected more of a place when he answered the woman's ad, and he darn sure never expected a built -in family. Ready to ride on, he changes his mind when confronted with the enormity of challenges facing this beautiful, determined woman who was definitely more than met the eye. Besides, he needed to disappear, and this wide spot in the road was a seemingly easy place to do so. He would fulfill his part of the bargain, and once the Matlands moved out, he'd continue his plan to live a solitary life.
Neither Loreen nor Jake counts on falling in love. But as their feelings grow, each feels trapped tighter in their respective pasts. Both wonder if second chances are possible. Would their love survive once truths are revealed?
This story is heartwarming. The characters are vivid, and their growth is seen readily throughout the novel. At first the reader is led to believe Loreen is too soft on her brother, but as the story progresses she handles him well as her confidence grows. The subtle parallel brought forth in the plot between Loreen and a creature that comes into their care that has been mistreated is handled deftly. Jake's courage is to be admired, besides, he sounds scrumptious! END
