Texas Sweethearts series--Book One
As young girls, they vowed to be best friends forever--a promise they kept through happiness and heartbreak! Now these four Texas Sweethearts are all turning thirty. In spite of busy lives, full-time careers, and an assortment of beloved animals and meddling townsfolk, true love is destined to surprise each one of them in the magical little world of their own hometown.
Bamboozled into going home again...
Ten years ago, Sunny Carmichael left Hope Valley, Texas and became a veterinary disease specialist--a darn good one! When her meddling, matchmaking mother urges her to come home to investigate the mysterious deaths of several cows before news spreads and ruins the local cattle industry, Sunny reluctantly agrees, even though she will likely run into the man who broke her heart and caused her to flee her small hometown so long ago.
He has no idea he's been set up....
Jackson Slade never forgot the girl who got away. But he had to put the painful past behind him and move on with his life. Now a widowed, single-father, he is raising his quiet little girl alone on his ranch that is suddenly losing cattle. With his livelihood and life in possible jeopardy, the last person he expects to find nosing around his herd is the very same woman he's tried to forget--Sunny Carmichael.
Now what? A second chance at love...?
Although this Texas Sweetheart is not home to stay, it isn't long before the passionate spark that fired their youthful romance quickly blazes into a scorching flame. Now Sunny and Jack have two problems on their hands: a deadly cattle epidemic and their undeniable attraction!

I really enjoyed this book. This is the first book I have read by this writer, and I am looking forward to book 2 in the series. Jack and Sunny's dialogue was funny, a little snarky, and often sweet. All of the characters were well written and their very distinct personalities were obvious, even the creepy one. Tori was a sweetheart, and the one scene was just heartbreaking. Romance, a steamy scene or two (not too explicit), friend, loyalty, love, and a touch of mystery. Who could ask for more? I devoured this first book and it left me with a smile. You are definitely left with a HEA. The only thing that could have made it any better was an epilogue. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.
This was a great start in a new series. It was sweet and wholesome and very well written. Overall a great second chance romance. Love the small town vibe - very realistic. Jack and Sunny were just perfect for each other. They have a great connection and chemistry. The characters are strong, well written, developed and likable. The plot was entertaining and this book just really drew me in. I can't wait to read the next in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
