Another heartwarming and deeply satisfying romance from Helen Lacey. I'm loving this new Cedar River series, and how lovely is it to have a cowgirl this time, instead of a cowboy. The hero Tyler, is to die for, and when the tug-of-war is about a beautiful baby, what's not to love? Highly recommended! ...more
