This was a decent story. I thought the characters were alright but the story had parts that just didn't work for me. This is the first story I've read by this author and based on this, I'm unlikely to try more of her work in the future.
Cary is a pastry chef that has a dream of opening her own bakery. Cary never knew her dad and her mother abandoned her as soon as she hit 18 (with no notice mind you). Cary had to work hard to make a better life for herself and saved whatever she could towards achieving her dream. Unfortunate, Cary's ex-boyfriend owed a loan shark some money and the loan shark decided to go after Cary for the money even though she hasn't seen her ex in months.
Micah is a cowboy that owns a ranch that's been in his family for generations. Micah never wanted to be anything but a cowboy and ranch owner but when he got married, it was to a woman, Marlene, that couldn't stand the ranch or staying in one place for long. They had a daughter, Willa Wild, and then Marlene left after about 2 years. Micah divorced her but Marlene comes back to visit every so often...usually when she needs money.
Cary was scared of the loan shark and rather than go to the police, she dumped her life and ran cross-country. Even though the loan shark wasn't supposed to come back for a week, Cary left with little money and ran out of what she did have, part way across the country. She ended up in a diner in a town called East Hope when she hears Micah talking about needing a cook. She offers to do the job temporarily and Micah agrees because he's desperate. Micah is attracted to Cary at once and knows that agreeing to hire her could lead to trouble but he's in a bind and does so anyways.
Cary has a bit of a rough start at the ranch (not realizing just what a proper breakfast for ranch hands should be) but she quickly gets the hang of things. The attraction between Cary and Micah is strong but she's worried the loan shark will come after her so she can't start anything with him because she can't stay long term. Just about this time, Marlene shows up and spreads lies and ill will like she's the Christmas grinch. She sees the attraction between Micah and Cary and is particularly vindictive and intent on breaking them up before they even get started. Things end up crashing and burning and Micah suffers from a bout of relationship dumbassedness that causes him and Cary to be separated. Thankfully, he pulls himself together and does what needs to be done and things turn into a HEA.
This was an alright story. I liked the characters for the most part, particularly Willa Wild...she was a cute kid character. My main issue with this story was the plot holes and the short timeframe during which everything happened. II mean when the MCs got their HEA and admitted their love for each other, they'd had 2 kisses and hadn't spent all that much time together. Overall, it was enjoyable if you can ignore the flaws. :)
