In the heart of Ransom Canyon, sometimes the right match for a lonely soul is the one you least expect
Dan Brigman may not lead the most exciting life, but he’s proud of what he’s achieved: he’s a respected lawman, and he’s raised a bright, talented daughter on his own. But finding a lone, sparkly blue boot in the middle of a deserted highway gets him thinking maybe the cowgirl who lost it is exactly the shake-up he needs.
After losing her baby girl, Brandi Malone felt like her soul died along with her daughter. Now singing in small-town bars to make ends meet, she’s fine being a drifter until a handsome sheriff makes her believe that parking her boots under his bed is a better option.
College grad Lauren Brigman has just struck out on her own in downtown Dallas when a troubling phone call leads her back home to Crossroads. Her hometown represents her family, friends and deepest hopes, but also her first love, Lucas Reyes. Will Lauren’s homecoming be another heartbreak, or a second chance for her and Lucas?
Welcome to Crossroads, TX where there just seems to be so much happening! The main story line in Wild Horse Springs is the sheriff in town, Dan Brigman. Dan has been divorced for years and since his wife left, he just hasn’t dated, much to the chagrins of the women in town. But he’s be busy raising his daughter and being the law to worry about a relationship. Plus no one has really ever caught his eye until Brandi Malone.
Brandi has never been one to stay in one place for long, so what could a little fling with the local sheriff hurt.
This book is full of competing stories with Dan’s daughter Laura and a local kid, Thatcher, who gets involved with a town mystery. I read this book without having read the other books in the series and I though I enjoyed the book, I feel as if I would have enjoyed the book more having known these characters in the previous books, with more of their backstories.
If you like small town romance reads, this is a series that you will you will definitely want to check out! 4 Stars.
