My Review:

Matt Corbin was the boy from the wrong side of town,
The one who others liked to keep knocking down.
Because of his dreadful childhood and what happened then
He was determined to leave Last Ride and not return again.

He worked hard to leave his past far behind
But now has returned and is shocked to find
That his teenage crush is living in the cottage next door
To the ranch he was left by his grandfather who he adored.

The attraction between Matt and Emory is stronger than before
But is it too powerful for them both to ignore?
She's been given the task of recording his mother's life
This will bring him so much trouble and strife.

As they work together reading the secret diary of his Mum,
It seems others hope they won't discover what they had done.
Can they help to heal his horrendous past
And put away the rumours of his Mum at last?

Filled with family drama from the present and the past
This is a heartwarming story with the hope for love that will last.
For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
An engaging romance and mystery, and this is my honest review.

Description

Can two old friends rekindle the spark that brought them together when their pasts are littered with land mines?

The chance to be near his young son is the only thing that could entice former SWAT commander Matt Corbin back to his hometown. Matt has only a few happy memories of his tough childhood in Last Ride, Texas, and most of them involve Emory Parkman. Once his teenage crush, she’s now living in a cottage on his late grandfather’s ranch, which seems like a good omen…until Matt learns Emory is looking into his family’s history, a subject he’d prefer remained closed.

Emory’s wedding-gown designs are said to bring luck—to everyone but her. Though twice bitten by romance that went sour, she’s tempted to take a chance on the rancher next door. Emory and Matt’s long-ago attempts at love never got a fair chance, but all these years later, their attraction is stronger than ever. Maybe by unearthing some of his ancestors’ long-buried secrets, she can help him finally cast off the past’s shadows and prove to Matt that the third time’s the charm.
