The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly with lots of suspense and romance while the strong, charismatic characters draw readers in and hold them hostage.
This small town setting provides lots of spice to the story with all the gossiping and neighborly disagreements, some that are even downright mean and the Lucky Penny Ranch provides its own share of intrigue to the story as the sexy cowboys build it up, but of course most of the excitement, fun and suspense comes from the romance itself as both Lizzy and Toby try to keep their romance make-believe. There is some snarky dialogue, some friendly competition and some secrets to add spice to the story and a bit of drama with the ex- fiancé adds some sensational flair and depth.
The Lucky Penny Ranch sure is fun to visit and the characters are quite entertaining so me being completely ensnared by this story isn’t surprising nor is the fact that I can’t wait to read the next one.
