We apologize, dear readers, for our brief hiatus in publication. The offices of the Rust Creek Rambler were damaged in the Great Flood, but we are now filing our reports from a bar stool at the Ace in the Hole. And do we have scandalous news for you!My Thoughts:
We have it on good authority that during the storm, gorgeous rapscallion Collin Traub was stranded with our beloved kindergarten teacher Willa Christensen—alone. In a barn. Overnight. No one knows why, but Willa could barely stand the sight of Collin before. And now? Oh, readers—we don't like to kiss and tell. But our sources tell us that the sexy Rust Creek cowboy has set his sights on lassoing the sweet schoolmarm for good!
This was a double win for me, being a fan of Christine Rimmer and Montana Mavericks. This was a quick paced book. The story centered around a flood that tore through the small town of Rust Creek Falls. For many in the east coast Hurricane Sandy is still fresh in their minds, in 2012 the Hurricane obliterated a substantial chunk of the Atlantic seaboard.
The heroine has been avoiding Colin for the past four years, he walks into a room and she walks out. After getting saved by Colin during the town flood, her feelings for him start to change.. She begins seeing more of the "man" and not the playfully mischievous person he has been labeled to be. Between the two of them, they struggle with these feelings for one another... will love prevail? The romance is not overly steamy, just a simple romantic read.
This story introduced you to many great characters, we cheered and cried for their losses. The author did a great job depicting the flood and the how a small town pulled together. I can't wait to read what is in store for the characters, how their lives intertwine and how Rust Creek Falls I'm really looking forward to the read the rest of the series and find out how the people of Rust Creek Falls repair their town and their lives.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
