Synopsis (from Barnes and Noble):
Fast track up the political ladder, fast cars, fast women—that's Garrett McKettrick. Make that was. A scandal has brought him home to Blue River, Texas, a place where a man can slow down, take stock and plan his next move. Which doesn't include staying at the family ranch with his brothers. A city boy, Garrett doesn't think he has the land in his blood.
But Blue River has other attractions, like his former high school nemesis, Julie Remington. Now a striking woman, Julie comes complete with a four-year-old cowboy, a three-legged beagle and deep ties to the community. Good thing they have nothing in common…except their undeniable attraction and a future brighter than the Texas sun.
This is the second book in the McKettricks of Texas series and I really enjoyed this one too. See Garret is a very interesting hero...He thinks he's on the road to be a career politician but then there are some circumstances that make him think maybe he's NOT cut out to be in that line of work. He likes to think the best of people and over look their faults also.
Then we have Julie who is Garrett's high school nemisis. Even though she is oh so attracted to Garrett she has a career, a child AND a three-legged beagle to consider. She's not even convinced that he's NOT going to take off on her like her son's father did AND she doesn't want to have anything to do with politicians in any way, shape, or form.
But Garrett is pretty persistent especially after he falls hard for a single mom, he 4 year old son and their three-legged beagle. This story has just the right amount of family interactions, love, romance, and a little bit of danger just to shake up all those "happy feelings."
