One of the wonderful things about this book is it is so much more than just a single romance. Instead you get a great mixture of several couples, a small town, family and friendships. This book takes characters that were seen in previous books and continues to follow them as they grow older and as their lives change. But, it also introduces new characters which brings new fresh perspectives to familiar characters and brings new life to a small town. Still, don’t expect just warm love and happiness because there are shoot outs, fights and dark times. Each chapter comes from a different character’s perspective and moves that part of the story forward. I have to say that I get so wrapped up in these stories that even when there is “closure”, I want more. Plus I didn’t feel like I’ve seen the last of Lauren and Lucas. At least, I hope not because I’m not ready to let them go. This book is part of a series but it stands-alone so just start reading. Soon you will find yourself in love with this small town and the people that live there.
Dan’s the sheriff and happy in his life. Sure, he doesn’t have a wife or girlfriend and his only child is

Brandi doesn’t plan on ever getting involved with anyone but Dan has changed her mind. They agree it’s temporary but will it be? Lauren graduated from college and moved to Dallas. Now, she wonders if she made the right choice. A phone call from home has her heading back and calling the man she’s had a crush on since she was a teenager. She always thought they would evolve into something more than friends. Will this meeting make that happen or make her face that it will never be?
In the heart of Ransom Canyon, sometimes the right match for a lonely soul is the one you least expect
Dan Brigman may not lead the most exciting life, but he's proud of what he's achieved: he's a respected lawman, and he's raised a bright, talented daughter on his own. But finding a lone, sparkly blue boot in the middle of a deserted highway gets him thinking maybe the cowgirl who lost it is exactly the shake-up he needs.
After losing her baby girl, Brandi Malone felt like her soul died along with her daughter. Now singing in small-town bars to make ends meet, she's fine being a drifter—until a handsome sheriff makes her believe that parking her boots under his bed is a better option.
College grad Lauren Brigman has just struck out on her own in downtown Dallas when a troubling phone call leads her back home to Crossroads. Her hometown represents her family, friends and deepest hopes, but also her first love, Lucas Reyes. Will Lauren's homecoming be another heartbreak, or a second chance for her and Lucas?
