Back Cover Blurb:

Where family bonds are made and broken, and where young love sparks as old flames grow dim, Ransom Canyon is ready to welcome—and shelter—those who need it

With a career and a relationship in ruins, Jubilee Hamilton is left reeling from a fast fall to the bottom. The run-down Texas farm she's inherited is a far cry from the second chance she hoped for, but it and the abrasive foreman she's forced to hire are all she's got.

Every time Charley Collins has let a woman get close, he's been burned. So Lone Heart ranch and the contrary woman who owns it are merely a means to an end, until Jubilee tempts him to take another risk—to stop resisting the attraction drawing them together despite all his hard-learned logic.

Desperation is all young Thatcher Jones knows. And when he finds himself mixed up in a murder investigation, his only protection is the shelter of a man and woman who—just like him—need someone to trust.

My Review:

This was a heartfelt tale full of hope & second chances. I loved how Thomas drew me into her world, creating a connection with both the land and the characters. The intricate manner in which she told her tale allowed me to see everything in a much bigger picture. At the same time, the focus remained on the characters at hand. The gradual progression of the tale really gave a sense of realism and of the everyday to it.

The characters that Thomas created fit very well with the tale. I enjoyed how everyone filled their role without remaining restricted to it. The multidimensional development of both the main and secondary characters was fantastic.

This was a great addition to Thomas’ series. I enjoyed every moment together and how it came together as a seamless whole. I’d recommend it to those who enjoy small town romance done right.
