Sheriff Boone Taylor has his job, friends, a run-down but decent ranch, two faithful dogs and a good horse. He doesn’t want romance—the widowed Montanan has loved and lost enough for a lifetime. But when a city woman buys the spread next door, Boone’s peace and quiet are in serious jeopardy.
With a marriage and a career painfully behind her, Tara Kendall is determined to start over in Parable. Reinventing herself and living a girlhood dream is worth the hard work. Sure, she might need help from her handsome, wary neighbor. But life along Big Sky River is full of surprises like falling for a cowboy-lawman who just might start to believe in second chances.
My Quick Thoughts:
It is often difficult for me to review books that come from series that are well established because well since I liked the first books, I can almost guarantee that I will like the next. That being said this will be a pretty quick take on my thoughts.
Boone Taylor, is the Sheriff in Parable, we have gotten to know him a bit in the previous stories. His wife died leaving him with two small boys who have been living with his sister a few hours away. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Boone brings his boys home to stay. He has been living in the trailer he purchased before his wife passed away and has just been making it day to day.
Just across the way, Tara Kendall, has moved into a home once owned by Boone’s family. Tara is annoyed by the shabbiness of Boone’s trailer. On a surprise call, her ex-husband basically tells her that he is shipping his twins off to visit while he takes the new girlfriend away without the kids. Tara is annoyed but she loves and misses the girls.
These two unlikely groups of people with cross lives and things will never be the same.
This was a great story. I can actually believe that it could really happen. That is what I like in a good solid romance.
