OverviewConner Creed knows exactly who he is: a hardworking rancher carrying on his uncle's legacy in Lonesome Bend, Colorado. Maybe a small-town cowboy's life isn't his dream, but he owes the man who took him in as a kid. Until the identical twin brother he's been estranged from for years reenters his life.
Conner struggles with identity issues as he gets to know his wilder brother. And then he meets Tricia McCall, a beautiful woman who knows a thing or two about living someone else's dreams. Together, they just might find their own dreams right here in Lonesome Bend….
This is the second book in the series that was released this spring. Conner was introduced in the last book when his cousin Stephen bought a ranch in Stone Creek. Conner came to the rodeo, got into a fight with his twin brother Brody, and left. Now we get to find out who Conner is and what has made him this way.
Something happened with Conner and Brody and a girl named Jolene that caused Brody to leave town for ten years and Conner to take over the running of the family ranch on his own. Conner is responsible and hardworking and someone who can be counted on, but he still feels a lot of pain from his brother's betrayal and misses the bond they used to have as brothers and as twins.
Tricia is in in town to sell her the property left to her by her father when he passed away. The drive-in movie theater has long been closed and the RV Park and Campground has seen better days. She enjoys living in the apartment above her great-grandmothers house, but she misses her best friend and her dog who recently passed away. Enter a stray dog and her god daughter who comes to spend a few weeks, add in a cowboy, a chili cook off, a rummage sale and a trail ride. Tricia comes out of her shy shell and starts to question the long distance relationship she has been half-heartedly participating in.
Tricia and Conner have all the requisite sparks when they meet, but they do seem to connect on a deeper than physical level and are both likeable, believable and flawed individuals. I am looking forward to diving into the last and most recent book to find out all about Brody! His mystery and where he has been for the past ten years was just hinted at in this one.
