Dalton Williams has spent several years on the rodeo circuit bronc riding, and when he has a wonderful eight-second ride, it will change in a blink of the eye with the horse slamming him into the wall, fracturing his leg in two places and end his rodeo career. Just as he is coming to terms with this, he is handed the Cotton Tree Ranch in South Georgia. The ranch has been poorly managed and will take lots of work, but does have horses, a house, barns, and some equipment. Now his new plan is to raise and breed stock horses.
Third chair violinist, Hazel Hildebrand, with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, has ended the season and now has some down time. Her best friend and house mate, Jen, is a vet and works on a horse ranch. She has an emergency medical issue and begs Hazel to accompany a horse to a ranch for breeding. Just a quick trip there, overnight stay, and back. Easy-peasy, or maybe not. And that is our set up for this tale.
The plot will have Hazel agreeing reluctantly to accompany a mare, Contessa's Charity, to a breeding ranch and then pretends to be the vet. Dalton Williams is shocked when Hazel arrives dressed inappropriately in designer clothing and Jimmy Choos heels.
The city slicker lady will meet her hayseed cowboy. Two people, just trying to do a job, but brought together in unusual circumstances, find themselves dealing with weather issues, unexpected situations, and developing a physical attraction. A phone call confirms Dalton's suspensions, but he doesn't reveal what he learns. While Hazel never confirms or denies her status, her lack abilities tell the truth.
What happens when life takes a new twist, and Hazel is offered a first chair position? She must decide if she is fulfilling her dream, or is it the one her parents have made for her? Dalton enlist the aid of his two younger brothers with the ranch, and together, the three of them make progress, but what about money? With several months left before the years time frame, will he be able to keep Cotton Tree, or lose it?
This is a clean, contemporary story that has secrets, some deceit, loyal friends, faithful family, lots of horses, and new beginnings. Life doesn't always proceed as we plan, but sometimes, those forks in the road take us on a scenic route that will lead to a new future.
Under false pretenses, a big city violinist meets a former bronc rider turned rancher. After a rocky start, a mutual attraction develops. Given the differences in their lifestyles, does this relationship have a future?
Dalton is a wonderful character; however, I didn’t like Hazel at first (thought she was a snob), but I did like her by the end of the novel. I really like the character of Jan, despite thinking that she doesn’t fit my idea of a veterinarian who specializes in treating large animals. I guess I have a mental image of veterinarians as being totally level-headed individuals. Jan seems just a tad bit too ditzy to be a member of that profession.
