This review is for the second book in the latest trilogy by Linda Lael Miller. Connor has stayed on the ranch that he and his twin brother inherited from his father who died a short time after the twins’ birth. Connor has always wanted a family but was too shy and reserved. Tricia McCall is back in town to sell her inheritance from her father. Tricia visited Lonesome Bend every summer and was considered stuck-up because she was also shy.
This book tells the story of how two lonely, shy people create a lasting romance. Fortunately, for them, they had a lot of help from Tricia’s goddaughter who is visiting her and a her grandmother who thinks that Tricia and Connor would make a lovely couple. This story has both primary and secondary characters who are interesting and give life to this journey. There are also a slew of animals who bring their own story for animal lover readers.
Ms. Miller unfolds this story beautifully along with plenty of help from friend and family including her precocious goddaughter.
