My Review:

After divorcing her controlling and manipulative husband, Sofie Pennington decides to move away from his influence and goes to visit her sister in Fly Creek. However, she doesn’t tell her sister she’s coming – or that she’s eight months pregnant! En route she’s stopped by a herd of cattle and rescued by a handsome cowboy, Dan Rigby, who was travelling in the opposite direction. He’s secretly endeavouring to leave the community where he was brought up and where everyone knows him to be so reliable that his nickname is Dependable Dan. He wants to be more than dependable but isn’t sure he can find himself and what he really wants whilst remaining there. However, he can’t abandon Sofie, so gives up on his escape plan and takes her to her sister, wondering as he does so how he can be so attracted to such a very pregnant lady he’s only just met!

I have mixed feelings about this one, mainly because of the heroine. Having escaped such an emotionally abusive relationship, Sofie is determined not to be controlled again and takes being independent very seriously, even when it isn’t appropriate. She assumes anyone who tries to help her is trying to control her and is actually quite nasty to others – at times I really didn’t like her. She seemed determined to tar everyone with the same brush as her ex-husband and not to want to see the good in them. Dan is so patient and caring, totally dependable – and she’s horrible to him, too, and he definitely doesn’t deserve it – he needs a medal for sticking by her IMHO! It does get resolved nicely and at no stage did I consider not finishing it but it isn’t my favourite book by this author though others may well love it, so give it a go and see what you think!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this review is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.

Synopsis:

Stranded in the middle of the road in big sky country, Wyoming, at eight months pregnant isn’t exactly what Sofie Pennington had planned when she decided to pack up and surprise her sister. Fly Creek is a fresh start for her, one where she’s finally free from her controlling ex and can figure out this whole single parent thing. First, though, she needs to get there. To her shock, her rescuer comes in the form of a frustratingly handsome cowboy.

Dan Rigby is on his way out of town—for good—when he stumbles across a very pregnant Sofie. She’s the most obstinate, exasperating woman he’s ever met…and the most appealing. She drives him crazy, in more ways than one. When her sister suddenly has to leave, and Dan becomes Sofie’s welcoming committee, they find themselves growing closer despite their desire for conflicting things. Can Dan convince Sofie that Christmas miracles do happen?
