They can’t change the past…
but they can choose their future
Globe-trotting journalist Cassidy Fulton is back in Carbondale, Colorado. Only she can’t remember why—or the accident that killed her estranged sister. Helping her piece together this mystery is her brother-in-law and former fiancé, Daryl Loveland. Overcoming their grief seems impossible. Yet one thing is clear: Cassidy can’t imagine her life without Daryl or her adorable niece and nephew. But can the ranch ever really be her home?
In My Opinion
So, I’ll be honest here. I had my doubts about how much I would like this new Karen Rock book but as a fan of the Loveland and Cade clans, I wasn’t about to miss it. Y’all, Rock blew me away with this book. Why, you ask? Well, I’ve got a few things to say about it.
First, my biggest concern after reading the description was a (very recently) widowed man falling for his first love, who also happened to be his deceased wife’s sister? Yeah, that sounded like too much too soon. But nope, Rock gave a believable backstory to that, and the history Cassidy and Darryl share just enhances their attraction and admiration for each other.
Darryl is so determined to do the right thing, to live up to the Loveland name, that he often sacrifices his true desires for others around him. But he is most definitely one of the good guys. I mean, how can you not love a cowboy whose kids are his everything?
And Cassidy? Well, despite her globe trotting photojournalism career, this woman has a tender heart and cares just as much for those kids.
Of course, in true Karen Rock fashion, there’s also plenty of stoic Loveland siblings, hot-headed Cade siblings, and some family drama that remains to be solved in future books.
A Rancher to Remember surprised me in the best kind of way with Rock’s ability to deliver solid stories with tough issues, family ties that are almost unbreakable, and lots of heated kisses for the romantic in her readers.
