People tend to forget that receiving a 3 as a rating is middle of the road, it's still a good rating and should be thought of as such.
I could not connect with the characters. The first few pages did not grab me, but I pushed on. But the more I pushed on the more that I knew that I was not reading the book and enjoying it. In the end, I just had to face the hard facts that this was not the book for me. That being said, please do lot let ti detour you, many others will no doubt find it a pleasurable escape. As I said, it just wasn't the book for me.
But when Lucy arrives at her destination she’s dumfounded and in disbelief, surely there has been a BIG mistake and she is going to have serious words with daddy as soon as she can get out of this hole in the mountains enough to get a phone signal. She has landed smack dab in the middle of a fully operational working ranch and she is one of the newest cowhands or is it cowgirl?
Echo Heaven Ranch, a self-supporting working ranch offers two week runs for groups of men or women to come and see and experience firsthand how a ranch runs. That means you ride a horse, you herd cattle, mend fences and that is just the clean stuff. You also have too muck stalls, mend fences and clean out pig pens. Oh my! Yhew!
Echo Heaven owned and run by Stace Levin, a hardworking, hands on owner of a little piece of heaven and with the help of paying guests that come to get the ultimate experience of first hand ranch life Stace has a nice little operation going. Then he meets a city gal lawyer named Lucy and his world gets turned upside down, but little does he know of the things to come with this fiery slip of a woman with a quirky sense of humor.
This book is the first I’ve read of Sandi Whipple. This author obviously is no novice at ranch life and has done her research well. The characters are very well rounded and likeable. You’ll laugh at times and then you’ll sympathize with the situation that the main femme character has found herself in. The story flows and moves at a good pace, the editing was very nicely done and best of all it was very cleanly written.
When I say cleanly written I mean there are some very passionate love scenes but the way the author takes you through these scenes you find yourself seeing the action in your mind feeling the tenderness and passion, but the raunchy explicit language is not there. I really enjoyed the characters and the way they find themselves in situations that aren’t the best that life would have to offer, after all ranch life is or can be backbreaking work. This author has got a winner on her hands with this one. Good story line, great characters and a top notch ending.
I highly recommend this book to adults as well as some of the younger set maybe 16 and up. If you like a country setting with down to earth good ole folk, you’ll enjoy reading this one.

This was a cute story by a new to me author and I will be looking for other books she’s written. It was a quick paced lighthearted read and its premise was unexpected. I was able to finish the book in less than a day since it kept my interest from the first page to the last.
Lucy, Baumgardner, a high-powered Philadelphia lawyer, and Stace Levin, the owner of a working ranch and spa, should have nothing in common but there was chemistry and an attraction between them the moment they met even though a forced vacation, especially on a working ranch or dude ranch, wasn’t her thing. The spa relates to hot springs and not a spa as Lucy was thinking – relaxing with massages, mani’s and pedi’s! There were a lot of laughs throughout especially when Lucy realizes the type of vacation her father made her go on but also undercurrents of other stories in the background that became front and center soon enough with a mystery that needed solving.
Lucy was a good sport throughout no matter what ranch jobs were thrown her way. Even seeing her accommodations in a cabin, the family style meals with the other tourists, the early rising with a clanging of a bell, learning how to ride a horse and her poor clothing choices didn’t deter her from doing her best and making the best of the situation. She would get down and dirty – often an understatement – and do what needed to be done without too much complaint. Of course, her sarcasm and retorts and comments under her breath tended to get her in trouble when they were often times heard mainly by Stace. She was a quick learner and always did her best or tried to no matter what assignment was thrown her and her team’s way and we were immediately immersed in a ranching life.
There were family, friends, airplanes, horses, cattle, pigs, cabins, the main house, good and hearty food, beautiful scenery in Arizona, heartache, anger, laughter, aches and pains, jealousy, doubts, fear, lawyering, lots of loving and ultimately love. The loose ends were tied up nicely and there was closure and a happily ever after but an epilogue would have been nice.
Favorite Quote: Laughing out loud, she name her pig Mr. Levin.
