This was such a lovely story.
Being the third book on the Fly Creek series does not affect the reading experience at all. It can comfortably read as a standalone novel. In case you have read the previous books in the series you will see beloved characters showing up again.
Sofie has just divorced a controlling man that took away her choices in life. Pregnant, with a huge belly, she runs to her little sister who is now living in Fly Creek. What she doesn’t expect is to find love again so soon after everything that happens. The problem is that she doesn’t know how to balance her need to make her own choices and fend for herself, and the needs of the cowboy she’s falling for.
Dan is a resident of Fly Creek that’s trying to run away before he gets resentful and hurt the people that has done so much for him. He wasn’t expecting the pregnant angel that banged on his truck window when he was waiting for a herd of cows to move across the road. He sure as hell wasn’t expecting to fall for Sofie but their individual needs clash. Could they make it work?
I really love a good romance with characters that have a story of their own. I especially love when the woman is resentful for something a man did in her past and now she thinks all men are evil or something. In this case, I wish she had a little more sense of maturity or maybe paid attention to the signs a little bit more. It’s not all Sofie’s fault, Dan could have done with a little more attention to the real verbal information he was given.
The climax of the story was a little silly for me. I won’t talk details because I don’t want to spoil anyone that hasn’t read it but for me, in particular, it wasn’t a “lack of communication” problem, like it usually is, it was a lack of a proper “listening to the other person” problem.
The whole book was sweet and funny. I also loved the inclusion of the townspeople and the meddling of Dan’s mom and other people in their lives. I would totally recommend this book for those that love a good cowboy romance, pregnant lady falling in love again and a small town when everybody is in each others business.
