Product Description

Melinda Keith was never a farm person. She grew up in Albuquerque with electric lights, gas heating, and two cars in the driveway. But after a painful divorce, she decides that life on an isolated farm in the Texas panhandle is exactly what she needs. Fiercely independent, Melinda is determined to live completely off the land and keep other people at a distance.

But then Ryan Delaney, a handsome widower with a two-year-old son, moves in next door. He insists on helping Melinda with her farming chores and is stubborn enough to make Melinda's carefully built walls of self-isolation begin to crumble.

Meanwhile, sinister acts of vandalism make it clear that not everyone is happy about Ryan Delaney's arrival. Whoever is behind them wants him gone — and is willing to resort to just about anything. Will Ryan and Melinda's blossoming relationship be able to withstand the storms?

Snuggling up with this book is a pleasant way to spend a weekend!

I enjoyed escaping with this mystery/romance and I learned a little about long-horn cattle and organic gardening along the way. I liked Melinda's independence and determination. Sometimes it is nice to read a story with a happy ending that doesn't get bogged down in issues.
