CASSIDY'S COWBOY, Book 6 in KAREN ROSE SMITH'S Search For Love Series
Cassidy Sullivan has secrets. Her mom died when she was five and she'd never known her dad. A life in foster homes ended up with her on an icy road in a hot-wired car on her way to trouble. An accident and a kind widowed rancher took her in and taught her the meaning of unconditional love. Last year, her twin sister Lucy (from book 4, Search For Love, ALWAYS HER COWBOY) had found her through using psychic Gillian Bradley. Now Cassie wonders if Gillian can help them find their father.
Before they can begin, Cassie meets Ben O'Donnell her foreman's nephew. Ben is a wealthy CEO who has brought his daughter to Twin Pines Ranch to help her recover from her mother's abandonment of them both. Since Ben spent summers on Twin Pines under his uncle's watchful eye when he was a kid, he knows the value of ranch life. He's hoping it will bring his daughter Julie some much-needed happiness.
Neither Ben nor Cassie count on the immediate and potent attraction between them that goes deeper than chemistry. If Cassie confides her secret to Ben, will he turn away? Even if he doesn't, what kind of future can they have if they live a country apart?
The search for a father and true love is a lot to handle at the same time. But Cassidy Sullivan isn't your ordinary cowgirl, and Ben O'Donnell could possibly become CASSIDY'S COWBOY.

What there was of the story was good, but it was only 70 pages. I felt like the book was incomplete. There was no "ending" as to how Cassidy and Ben decided on location nor was there an "ending" as to whether the father would let the girls into his life. Very disappointing.
loved this book. I was so happy that Cassidy and lucy found each other. then they found their father. my heart went out to Julie who was the little girl just needing reassurance that she was loved and not everyone would disappoint her
