A Baby for the Rancher was a very good story. It was the last installment in a continuity series (each book was written by a different author). I had not read the other books in the series and did have to sort out who a few people were at the beginning of the book. But, the author did a good job of catching the reader up to what had happened in past stories, making it possible for me to thoroughly enjoy this tale that highlighted forgiveness, learning from past mistakes, and trusting God for the future.
Ben and Lucy were very well written and believable characters. I really liked them a lot and was impressed with the way the author was able to show how much Ben had changed from the ladies man he used to be. There was also great chemistry between these two, even when Lucy was trying to resist that attraction and unsure if she could trust Ben.
This was an enjoyable romance with an interesting mystery thread running though it that I enjoyed from start to finish.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The Cowboy’s Unexpected Family
Awakening from a months-long coma, Ben Stillwater is met with a big surprise: the footloose bachelor cowboy is a father! Ben tries to adjust to life with baby Cody and decides what the child really needs is a mom. Sheriff Lucy Benson does not seem a likely candidate—she already has her hands full closing in on the thieves who have been targeting the ranches of Little Horn, Texas. But the closer Ben gets to Lucy—and the closer they get to solving the mystery—the more it seems the free-spirited rancher and the determined officer could be the perfect match.
