5 Stars: 

In this third outing with The Mountain Monroes, we follow Sophie as she finds her calling and her Happily Ever After. Sophie is a divorcée with twin four year olds. She had been the curator of the Monroe art collection before she was kicked out of the family businesses like her siblings and cousins. While in Second Chance Idaho, she stumbled into the old Trading Post and began to explore. Her decision to open a store selling the treasures she finds in town necessitated finding someone to look after the boys while at work. Enter cowboy, Zeke Roosevelt. In the first book in the series we meet Zeke after he suffers a compound fracture of his leg and he is now recuperating at the Lodgepole Inn. Because he can not yet return to his life as a working cowboy, he takes the role of Nanny to Andrew and Alexander.

I really enjoyed this story. Zeke is amazing with the boys, but he has a secret. He is completely smitten with Sophie, but it is his secret that he feels will keep Sophie from ever wanting a relationship with him. As we get to know Zeke, I felt so many different things for him. He has a lot of baggage from his youth that made him the man he was, and it took some time, some help from his friends and some soul searching to move beyond those roadblocks he has set up. Sophie is insecure about her place in the family. She always felt inferior to her siblings and she is not sure whether this store will be what she wants and needs, or if it will support her family. She also questions if she is doing what is best for her boys, remaining in Second Chance. I will say that the scenes with the boys are adorable, as they are cute, rambunctious, honest, vulnerable and loving. Shane is still working behind the scenes to find something to save the town, yet make it profitable. This story also showcases Roy the town handyman and we get to see another side of him. There are some humorous scenes, some scary ones and a few romantic ones that had my emotions all over. The story moves at a great pace, with various storylines that all pull together at the end. The dialogue is wonderful, with both humour and some sadness. I continue to love this series, and am all set to read the next book in the series, Lassoed by the Would-Be Rancher, Shane’s story. I received this book from the author upon my request. the rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.

MelindaCurtis (574x640).jpgAbout the Author: Prior to writing romance, award-winning, USA Today Bestseller Melinda Curtis was a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company, which meant when she flew on the private jet she was relegated to the jump seat—otherwise known as the potty. After grabbing her pen (and a parachute) she made the jump to full-time writer. She lives in California’s hot central valley with her hot husband – her basketball-playing college sweetheart. While raising three kids, the couple did the soccer thing, the karate thing, the dance thing, the Little League thing and, of course, the basketball thing. Between writing sweet romance and sweet romantic comedy, Melinda spends time with her husband remodeling their home by swinging a hammer, grouting tile, and wielding a paintbrush with other family members. She recently came to grips with the fact that she’s an empty nester and a grandma, concepts easier to grasp than jet-setting on a potty.
