Judy Christenberry has such an amazing way with her characters.. I feel all wrapped up in a warm blanket while reading :) She creates these beautiful worlds for us to imagine.. mostly life on a ranch! Her words flow so easily across the pages that you are finished before you even know it!
Jenny comes home to the ranch she was born and raised on until she was 8 years old, when her high society mother whisked her away from her father and the ranch she loved so much. Now at 26, she longs to reconnect with her father and rediscover the beauty of the land.. Never imagining she would fall for the smart mouth partner, Jason, that her father took on to help him in his dark years alone without his daughter.
We also got the bonus romance of Sam, Jenny's father, and his housekeeper of 26 years, Rachel.
So two beautiful weddings and lots of emotional tears later, I am happy to say I adored this story, these characters and this author!! :)
Description from the publisher:
Jenny has distant, happy memories of her long-lost dad, and has finally gained the confidence to find him. Only one man stands in her way: the aloof and brooding Jason Welborn--her dad's business partner. And it's clear he's not happy she's come home....Jason's convinced this city girl has only come to claim her share in the business, and then hotfoot it back to the Big Apple. But Jenny seems determined to win him over, and the more he tries to push her away, the more feisty Jenny's response becomes. Slowly but surely she's starting to get under Jason's skin....
