Three short stories about Kate Manning's three friends, who come to visit her on the family ranch after being apart for 5 years.

I like Ms. Rawlins' style though, and will definitely look to read more of her books.

Three short but sassy stories happening the same weekend, a quick enjoyable read. I liked Ben/Jess story the most and Lisa/Joe the least.
