He still loves her and is thrilled to have her back in his life, albeit temporarily. Chance knows it won’t be easy keeping the truth from Carly and she doesn’t make it easy either as she tries to help him on the ranch.
I read this in two sittings only pausing to cook dinner for the kids. The characters are lifelike with both flaws and good points. The story is at times heart wrenching and amusing, making me both smile and find the tissues. A real page turner, Rhonda Lee Carver has created a tale where past, present and future collide.
