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.
Cassidy is returning to Wishing Springs with her tail between her legs. Totally emotionally beaten by what her ex-husband has done and what she perceives as her ultimate failure. She has no desire to ever get married again. One thing stands in her way of that resolve. His name is Jarrod Monahan. Without giving away the story, Jarrod and Cassidy were attracted to each other years ago. Jarrod is determined to win Cassidy back and she is just as determined to stay as clear of Jarrod as she can.
This is the third installment of the Four of Hearts Ranch Romance Series. There was humor along with the serious parts of the book. There was even a little bit of mystery. The issues of heart break and divorce were discussed and what it can do to a person. Also, some of the minor characters issues were wrapped up in this book. I would recommend this book for a light enjoyable read.
I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.
