I suggest that this series be read in order, which I did. However, even after reading the prior installments, I had to recall all of the supporting characters. I wasn’t sure how I would like this book since I haven’t really bonded with Harlow and her sister Tierney. Three years ago Harlow, being the kind hearted person that she is, spent the summer on the ranch to help Tierney during her pregnancy. While at Split Rock, Harlow met a rancher who ultimately broke her heart. She vowed that she would never see him, but this time can’t be helped. Harlow and Tierney’s father has suffered a heart attack and wants to mend at the ranch. Of course, he wants both of his daughters there, and Harlow just couldn’t tell her ill father what transpired three years ago.
This time Hugh is determined to make amends with Harlow. While the story was a typical Lorelei James romance, I had issues with Hugh’s flashbacks. It is no secret that I am not found of flashbacks unless necessary, I found this one to be a little overboard. All in all, I have enjoyed this series and look for more books by this author.
