Her sons want her to be happy, but she’s too old to be set up on a blind date…isn’t she?
Amanda Whittaker has been looking for a second chance at love since the death of her husband several years ago. When her long-time relationship breaks up, she finally authorizes her sons to set her up on a blind date, sure nothing good will come of it.
She said no cowboys, and the man who shows up to dinner isn’t wearing a cowboy hat. She’s intrigued by his kind spirit and quiet charm, and the attraction between her and Finn is instant.
Finley Barber is a cowboy in every sense of the word. Born and raised on a racehorse farm in Kentucky, he’s since moved to Dog Valley and started his own breeding stable for champion horses. He hasn’t dated in years, and everything about Amanda makes him nervous.
As they spend more time together, Amanda makes some startling discoveries about herself while Finn remains steady and strong at her side—at least until he realizes she isn’t truly ready to move on.
At least not the way she’d have to in order to be with him. He can’t ask her to give up her home in Coral Canyon. Her memories there with her husband. Her time with her children at Whiskey Mountain Lodge.
So he doesn’t ask. Will Amanda take the leap of faith required to be with Finn? Or will he become just another boyfriend who doesn’t make the cut?
Sweet, clean romance. A little different than the rest of the series since this one is about the mom instead of the brothers. But I liked both main characters. I liked that they acted mature about things. For a while it didn’t seem like their could be an ever after that was “happily” for both of them but it worked out okay.
No sex, language or violence. Light on Christian themes.
