They can’t change the past…

but they can choose their future

Globe-trotting journalist Cassidy Fulton is back in Carbondale, Colorado. Only she can’t remember why—or the accident that killed her estranged sister. Helping her piece together this mystery is her brother-in-law and former fiancĂ©, Daryl Loveland. 

Overcoming their grief seems impossible. Yet one thing is clear: Cassidy can’t imagine her life without Daryl or her adorable niece and nephew. But can the ranch ever really be her home?

My thoughts

With her Rocky Mountain Cowboys series, Karen Rock has become one of my favorite authors in the Harlequin Heartwarming line of clean romances. A Rancher to Remember can stand alone although it’s #6 in the collection, but series readers will enjoy reuniting with the Cade and Loveland families. The characters and back stories of these two families are intricately woven and their “happily ever afters” are not easily won. Aside from the obvious cowboy attraction, what I like most is their humanness – weakness, pride, and misunderstandings, tempered with caring, sacrifice, kindness and love.

A Rancher to Remember is all about Daryl and Cassidy, sister of his deceased wife. Daryl Loveland was introduced in a previous book and I’ve been drawn to the story behind his troubled marriage ever sense. Cassidy is a fascinating lady herself – a strong, courageous and talented photo journalist – with a previous romantic attachment to Daryl. I loved the realness and complexity of this story’s family relationship drama – how serious, life-altering mistakes were made, followed by a determination to make things right, all with the hope and promise of grace, forgiveness, and new beginnings. Daryl and Cassidy have great chemistry, stronger than their reluctance to let the other in.

And there’s so much more to come from the Cades and Lovelands! Two secondary themes captured my emotions – Joy’s cancer diagnosis and a character claiming to be a family member and co-inheritor of Boyd’s ranch. I’m also drawn to Sierra Loveland, who has a wildlife veterinarian practice, and want to see more of her.

I recommend A Rancher to Remember, as well as the whole series, to all who enjoy a clean romance with character depth.

I received a copy of this book through Prism Tours. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
