I smiled through out this most of this book. It was hilarious when Evie freaked over a Spider. I laugh because I always scream too!

Evie can clean a house like no one else, but she can't cook. I just loved to see the relationship between Evie & Chance blossom. At one point, I even wanted to kick Chance & tell him to straighten up or else! I found this story to be a witty, charming, sweet ,western romance! To sum it up, this book is FUN! Even the Epilogues in these books are fun! I loved the multiple voices i n this story. The voices of Chance & Evie were especially spot on. They sounded very authentic to me.

Silly as it is, I couldn't turn it off as I was afraid I would miss something! Thank you ladies!

In the Audible edition, Lara Asmundson continues narration of the series which keeps that familiarity of the people of Y-knot and solidifies them in your head and heart.
I did suspect one of the major plot twists early on, though I it was just a nagging intuition. The story is so well done, I was unsure of it until the end, which made the suspense all the better.
