That's life lesson number one for Jenny Wyler. Which is why she's sequestered in the middle of rural Montana teaching in a one-room schoolhouse.

But for Abby Dawson, a kindergartner in Jenny'...more

I loved this book. The characters were realistic and the romance between Jenny and Adam was very sweet. I was worried about how the muteness of Adam's daughter Abby was going to be treated but I was happily satisfied with its treatment. I was glad that the subject wasn't a "magical fix" that happened to be convenient to the plot, instead Abby goes to a speech therapist and it takes time for her to even be able and confident enough to say one word.

So too did the romance take time. While part of...more
RANCHER DADDY overall was a pretty nice book. Although the romance lacked a little of that spark, it was clear from inside their heads that they had feelings from the start that felt real considering their painful pasts.

Jenny Wyler has learned her lesson about sharing her family’s past when her fiancé breaks up with her over her mother’s schizophrenia. With the story published and the town treating her differently and her dad’s death still fresh, Jenny seeks a fresh start in Saddlers Prairie, t...more
Charming small-town story. Jenny Wyler moves to Saddlers Prairie to take the job as the teacher for its small one-room school. She's running from an ex-fiance and friends who turned out not to be such good friends when they found out some truths about her past. She doesn't intend to leave herself open to such pain in the future, so she vows to stay mum and leave her past in the past.

Adam Dawson is the father of one of her new students, Abby. He's got some secrets of his own, and both find themse...more

The story had a lot of potential but there were a couple of things that really annoyed me. First of all, it skipped over the whole beginning of the couple's dating and went straight to the break-up. I would have liked to see how they started seeing each other but it glossed over that with just vague references to making out at her house. This was really frustrating because as a reader you go through the whole initial relationship stages in order to see how they eventually get together and sudden...more
Good book. Both Jenny and Adam had buried their pasts and refused to think or talk about them. It took them a long time to realize that they couldn't move forward until they put the past to rest. I did like how much Adam cared for Abby and wanted to help her. He was frustrated because he didn't know how. When Jenny came to town and had ideas to help, it was good, but Adam didn't want to have feelings for her. Jenny also fought her feelings because she had been hurt in the past. I loved the peopl...more
Cute book. Quick read. Nice throwback to my Harlequin days. Now time to hit the 1,001 list again.

I'm a bit of a voyeur. I love to stick my nose into total strangers' business and observe how they deal with life's hurdles and whatever obstacles fate throws at them. I can't think of anything more challenging or interesting than delving into a character's psyche to discover what makes her/him tick. The surprises and insights are amazing.

The people who interest me most are the ones I know will tr...more
