After finding her fiancé cheating with his secretary on her sofa, city girl Charlie Ryan is broken hearted. That’s it. She’s had enough of him, men and life in NYC, especially as she has just inherited a farm called ‘Tucked Away’ from the grandmother she never knew she had! She packs up her things and drives off to Montana and the farm. Life gets interesting from when she arrives, runs out of fuel and is trapped in her rental car by a bull!
She’s determined to make the most of this opportunity for a fresh start – without men spoiling it for her. She soon meets Sophie a knowledgeable thirteen year old who knows much more about cooking, baking and life on a farm than Charlie has ever dreamed of. They quickly become great friends and Sophie really helps her out, starting by taking her shopping for more appropriate clothes and some cowboy boots – actually, some hot-pink cowboy boots!
Zack Cooper owns and runs the local veterinary practice. He’s a single father, Sophie’s dad and doesn’t trust women after his ex-wife left him literally holding the baby. His daughter is the only female he’s going to allow into his heart ever again – until he meets Charlie. Their mutual attraction and reluctance to act on it means life’s about to get interesting for them both!
As well as the love interest between Charlie and Zach, this story has lots of additional stories running through it. There’s the suspicion of murder, someone trying to buy the farm for a railroad company, past secrets revealed, missing parents turning up, double dealing, misunderstandings, attempted rape and even arson involved in this fast paced tale which I found entertaining from start to finish. It has a real story to it that keeps the reader enthralled and I’ll certainly be looking for other books by this author in future!
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
