There are a few problems in the move that she can handle. There is one big one she is not sure she can, nor does she want to face it, er him.
J.T. Wainwright had also grown up in Springwater. They fell in love when Maggie was in high school. Then he dumped her one Christmas after she was in college. He showed up at her wedding, asking her to leave her groom and run away with him. She didn't. He left Springwater and moved to New York City. There he became a policeman and moved up to homicide detective. Then his partner was killed and he was also shot. He decides it is time to leave the city and return to Springwater. His ex-wife and their son lived with her new husband in Atlanta, so his relationship with Quinn wouldn't change. But his peace of mind would. He plans to restore his father's ranch after his uncle let it run down.
When the two of them are back in Springwater, sparks start to ignite between Maggie and J.T. once again. But can either trust the other enough to correct their misunderstandings?
That's the basic story in this warm romance novel. Oh, there are other things going on - cattle rustling, murder, arson, a teen age mother-to-be, a young man glad to make her his wife, and Maggie's separating parents. This is a mystery novel as well as a romance. But mostly, it's the romance between Maggie and J.T. A couple other stories are woven in that could lead to future books, since there are a series of Springwater novels.
This is not outstanding fiction, but is a pleasant, heart warming read. This book is good for a lazy afternoon, or an escape from the real world for a few hours.
Notice: Strong sexual content
