This is the second book in the Rocky Mountain Heroes series, which follows of a family of brothers. However, this book can definitely stand alone if you have not read the first book in the series, Their Ranch Reunion.
Although Lacie and Matt were once friends, this is not your typical friends to more romance plot. Lacie and Matt’s friendship fell apart years earlier when Matt started dating Lacie’s sister. This is more of a reunion story with a twist.
I really enjoyed the way these two were brought together in this small town, and watching as Matt became convinced that Lacie’s niece, Kenzie, was his daughter. I liked the way Matt and Lacie worked together to try to make things great for Kenzie, even as both of them worried what the future might bring.
The Deputy’s Holiday Family was a sweet story and I am looking forward to reading more books in this series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
