Over all this was a good book and I enjoyed it. It was a love story with some suspense thrown in which made for a good mix.
What I liked: The book had a good plot and I liked the characters. I thought the subplot with the vandalism to the ranch and who was doing it was well weaved into the story and I found myself wondering who was causing the issues. Ali had been through a lot so far in her life and I enjoyed watching her grow and change as the story went along. I also enjoyed the ending I felt a little surprised when I found out who was behind the troubles Ali was having and the added twist to the plot made it a good ending.
What I did not like: Jericho did not know he was the father of Ali’s son at first. This is a fine as other books have used this kind of a plot before but I felt it took to long for Ali to tell him. By the time the moment arrived it was kind of old news and took away from the plot a little.
Over all this was a good book and a solid first book for the author. I am curious if she might write another book about some of the side characters in this book at some point. If you like cowboys and romance check this book out!
