This is going to be a damned with faint praise kind of review. I really want to love every book I start reading but alas I didn’t with this one. I liked it, but it’s one I know I’ll never read again.

There were parts I liked and parts that I had issues with. The parts I liked; I really liked Owen. He’s a gruff, grumpy bear kind of guy and I liked that about him. He’s a widower whose been told again and again and again by his late wife he must improve his ways until he’s convinced he’s not good en

I wanted to like it. Owen was a great hero, gruff and cranky, but a big ole softy for his daughter. Daisy was too stupid for me to like though. She got smarter towards the end of the book, but she was already ruined for me. Elodie didn't seem age-appropriate (by that I mean she seemed more like 6 or 7 than 10, but admittedly I haven't spent that much time with kids other than my younger siblings.) It wasn't bad enough to turn me off the author altogether though, so I'll give her another shot.

This story ended being a little bit different than I expected but still it was an okay story. I did like both Daisy and Owen. They both had self-esteem problems but began to bring out of the best in each other. That I did like then there was a whopper of a misunderstanding. Owen's little girl was sweet with a mischievous side as well. So made a really good co-conspirator with a few of the women of the town. She wanted her father happier and she really took quite a shine to Daisy.

I can tell that this is a story that may hit readers as black or white, which means I see people either loving it or hating it.
Daisy Walsh is a book smart, street stupid woman of her time, this all goes down in June 1883 in Arizona Territory. She is on a national book tour to promote her housekeeping novel and her tour manager has all to easily preyed on her naivete and took her virginity early on in the tour. Daisy has all the obvious signs of pregnancy, but of course she never thinks of it bec
Date I was "finished" with the book -- I could not finish. It was not because it was full of errors, typos, poor grammar. But it was silly. The plot was silly. And very far fetched, IMHO. I got about 35% through the book before I just scrolled to the end and backed up three pages. Still silly and I quit.

I did like the character of the little girl. In fact I like the characters if the plot had not been so ...

I liked the cheesy romance. I wish there was an epilogue with a flash forward of Daisy with the baby and their new family. It would've been really cute. Western tales are always fun.

Ms. Plumley’s books are always full of humor and romance and this one is no exception. I have always loved her contemporary stories and her historicals are just as good. The inhabitants of Morrow Creek are unique and so very real they almost walk off the page. Owen and Daisy are complex characters with some very real difficulties. The resolution of these problems is the focus of a gripping plot that really held my interest.

I enjoyed this story. This was the first book I read by Lisa Plumley and I will definitely be looking into her other works. The plot was sweet, even if I had a little trouble with some of the romance. It didn't quite fit was was normal in the 1880s, Daisy and Owen living in the same house with his 10 year old daughter, without being married. That just wasn't done then. Overall, the story was great and I would recommened it to others.

I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it so much I went & bought several more of Lisa Plumley's books. Can't wait to get started on those too. I love when any author can make you laugh outloud & want to cheer for the characters and Lisa did not disappoint.

This book was enjoyable but not much happened in it. We spend a long time listening to different thoughts and feeling sorry for themselves, but still nothing really happens.
Although I will say it had a lovely ending - very beautiful in fact.

A sweet story with a (very) gullable lady finding her HEA with a single father and his daughter. Glad she found her strength at the end, standing up for herself and the life she wanted. Very sweet, not much smut. *he*

Simple, pretty yet with many misunderstandings.

I loved Eloide really really loved her and her talk of her baby brother.
I loved that Owen stood up to the heroine since the beginning till the end.

Full of humor and romance, though I think damnation was used a bit too much.
