One old farmhouse brought them together. It could also tear them apart.
Gigi has just uprooted her whole world to start a new life. The unexpected gift of a farmhouse in small-town Montana is just what she and her daughter need to escape big-city loneliness. The last thing she needs is attitude from the town’s sheriff, the most perfectly attractive and ruggedly handsome man she’s ever laid eyes on—and a complete jerk.
Jess knows all about women like Gigi. Beautiful. Sexy. Scheming. She’s stolen his sanctuary, the farmhouse that should have been his. But along with a face full of freckles, she’s got a sharp wit and a backbone of steel—something he doesn’t discover until after making a complete fool of himself. If he can earn back her trust and win her heart, he might just find the home he’s always needed.

  • The Girl

    Smart, Independent Woman

    Gigi doesn’t need a man. She has a daughter to raise. Looking for a better life for the both she decides to move them both into the Coppersmith Farmhouse left to her by man she thought of as a father. They both need the change from bigger city life and Gigi thinks that this could be perfect.

  • The Guy

    Sheriff A@@hole

    Angry that this gold digger is coming to take over the house and home that Jess has taken care of for over a decade, he completely misjudges Gigi and her intentions.  He takes alpha to a whole need a-hole level.

  • The Problem

    Could he be more wrong?

    Oh, yeah.  Jess realizes his mistake(s) but is it possible to fix what he has done?  He doesn’t give Gigi or Rowen a choice.  He just moves right on in, like he’s wanted to do for years.  Hope they don’t mind.

Small town romance at it's best.

Funny and heartwarming with a town full of characters to love. Misunderstandings and assumptions lead to interesting interactions with the two main characters in the beginning. Seeing an alpha grovel a little is always good for the soul.

Gigi and her daughter are looking for peace and a home. So when an elderly man who she had befriended while being his nurse passed away and left her a farmhouse in a small town, she thought this could be just the thing for them.

Driving to her new house, Gigi worries than all the changes are going to be too much. New job. New school for her daughter. New Life in a very small town. But when she arrives to find the house in pristine working order by a caretaker that isn’t there, Gigi can’t believe her fortune.  Finally fate is smiling down on her.

Until she meets the caretaker…

Plot Pacing

I liked the story from the beginning.  Jess makes mistakes and realized that early on.  I love alpha male, take-charge attitudes. This book checked all those boxes. This book introduces a cast of characters from town as well and sets up the other books in the series, but you don’t really have read them together or even in order.

This book was a nice steady relationship building story, with a big twist at the end.

Entertainment Factor

Why this score?

This is the highest score from the plot.

Why this score? Spoilers ahead.

Low points in the book don’t mean this is a bad story, simply that the book as slower areas.

  • Exposition (Intro of the Characters) : Ok, good back story and established Evie.
  • Conflict : Pretty good, A lot of names and extra stories getting established.
  • Rising Action: We know we can’t trust Charles.
  • Climax: Evie gets kidnapped! Roman kicks ass, Evie stays strong.
  • Falling Action: How Evie deals with her actions
  • Resolution: Pretty Good.
