Tough and driven, Kit Kendall replaced frills and dresses with no-nonsense haircuts and wranglers years ago. As owner of Sage Brush, the once-thriving West Texas bed and breakfast ranch, she now struggles daily to keep her business afloat. Since McCabe Lodge reopened next door as a multi-million-dollar resort, her financial difficulties compound, as she suffers one cancellation after another.
Just when she thought things couldn’t get any worse, Kit’s former neighbor and childhood nemesis returns as the new owner of the resort that’s now putting her out of business. Sam Dawson, cowboy turned entrepreneur, has returned to Sugar Creek after six years of exile with a secret that could destroy Kit’s happiness. He left town because of it and for the past two years has secretly tried to make it right. Having failed, he now returns to make one last attempt to undo the tangled web created by his father. Set in motion by his father’s will and with the clock ticking, Sam has only weeks to convince Kit to sell him her ranch or reveal the truth that will break her heart.
This was another good and sweet read for me.
I enjoyed the story and the way it is building up to their HEA. It was not rushed like you might find in other books. This seemed nice and natural.
I loved their back-story; I also liked that we didn’t find out right away what led to their parting in the first place. It gave it some suspense.
Both characters were very likable and easy to relate to, which is always a plus for me.
I liked Kit, she is sweet, funny and caring but she also can hold a grudge like no other. But even with that she did what was right for the people around her.
Sam, was just sweet and I enjoyed him a lot. I really liked that he was so down to earth and sweet and didn’t seem like a rich snob.
Overall I really enjoyed this book.
I rate it at 3 ½ ★
