This was a sweet story! I enjoyed the ranch and small-town setting (gotta love small towns!). I loved reading about all the ranch animals and details about running a ranch and the challenges and hard work involved. Grandpa was a hoot!
Both Destry and Rosie were strong characters with a desire to work hard and help other people. They both had several things in their pasts that they were working to overcome. I felt like some of these issues were just kind of glossed over and not really explored in depth, so I didn’t get to know the characters as well as I’d like. There were a couple of other parts of the story towards the ending as well that I wanted to see more resolution with and I was left with some unanswered questions.
Overall, I enjoyed it and was happy to see everything come together in the end.
