The Blue Thorn also has a new neighbor. One who is renowned for his horse training method created with his brother. The method includes DVDs, television shows, T-shirts, and a fan club. But Cooper Pine is ready to leave that life behind…if he can ever tell his brother. He has big plans for his Texas ranch. Plans to set down roots where his daughter can live outside the spotlight.
Neither Tess nor Cooper planned for each other.
I appreciate how Allie Pleiter builds this story. Yes, there is an attraction between Cooper and Tess, slow building at first but both of them are aware of the other from the start. Then there’s Sophie. A little girl who has every right to hide away in the shadows but is brave enough to stand out and shine. A girl who unintentionally shares too much information to her dad’s consternation.
The Texas Rancher’s New Family is a beautiful story of healing from heartaches. Of courage and living life to the fullest. It is the perfect conclusion to The Blue Thorn Ranch Series.

I instantly liked both Tess and Cooper. And Sophie was adorable! The strength she displayed and her positive attitude were super inspiring! A couple of the Buckton siblings were quite concerned about the plans Cooper had for his ranch next door and the tension oozed from the pages.
The Texas Rancher's New Family was another wonderful romance from Allie Pleiter. I read it super fast. I didn't want to put it down and I didn't want it to end. I loved reuniting with the Buckton clan and even though this is the fifth book in the series, it can standalone just fine. I highly recommend!

Cooper Pine has moved next door to the Buckton's family ranch with his daughter and his creative cook. He has been a part of a famous horse training program with his brother. Cooper is seeking to provide a stable life for him and for his daughter. He has built walls around himself and around his heart to protect himself and his daughter from being hurt. When Cooper and Tess meet they develop an easy friendship. Tess throws all of her love into Cooper's daughter but Cooper is non trusting by nature. When he learns of the trouble Tess left behind in Australia he has to decide if his feelings for her are strong enough to trust her.
The Texas Rancher's New Family is so well written. You feel like you are there. The characters are so likable and the story is so sweet. Great read!
Tess's family lives right next door to Cooper, and they fear he will stay on permanently and run his business from there, creating a three ring circus environment. Tess opens her heart when six year old Sophie responds so positively to her kind gestures, such as giving her a cute kitty. Cooper has fears that Tess is after his money when he finds out that she is in a lot of debt, and he thinks that Tess could be faking her affection for Sophie to get to him.
The story is very well written and a joy to read. I like how Pleiter infused the story with optimism, light-heartedness, and humor, trademarks of her work. I am looking forward to reading her next book!
Although it is a standalone novel, characters from other books in this series are a part of this book. (This didn’t hinder my enjoyment of the book, but definitely made me interested in reading the other books in the series!)
