Library JournalBoone and Crockett, like peanut butter and jelly, are said in one breath for they were always together in Taft—causing trouble more often than not. More than 20 years later, though, Crockett is now known as Father and Boone is a nationally syndicated cartoonist. They each make it home to Taft at least twice a year, but civility, not friendship, is all they expect from each other now. A woman tore them apart many years ago and now another woman just may bring them together. Lucy has come to Taft under the advice of Father Crockett. A devastating fire not only destroyed her livelihood but also her only family left in the world. In Taft, she soon finds love and a new family with Boone, Crockett, Aunt Gert, and Sims. But upon Lucy’s arrival, fires start popping up in Taft. Will she lose her new life and new family as well?
Verdict This tender-hearted romance is the perfect light read whether you are on the beach or in front of a winter fire. The steam level is low, making it appropriate for a wider audience.—Heather Lisa Maneiro, Minnesota State Univ. Lib.? Moorhead(c) Copyright 2013.
