Gigi has just uprooted her whole world to start a new life. The unexpected gift of a farmhouse in small-town Montana is just what she and her daughter need to escape big-city loneliness. The last thing she needs is attitude from the town’s sheriff, the most perfectly attractive and ruggedly handsome man she’s ever laid eyes on―and a complete jerk. Jess knows all about women like Gigi. Beautiful. Sexy. Scheming. She’s stolen his sanctuary, the farmhouse that should have been his. But along with a face full of freckles, she’s got a sharp wit and a backbone of steel―something he doesn’t discover until after making a complete fool of himself. If he can earn back her trust and win her heart, he might just find the home he’s always needed.
Review by Heather Mc.:
Gigi and her daughter Rowen inherit The Copper Smith Farmhouse in Prescott Montana from her elderly friend Ben. Ben left Prescott after his wife passed never to return, however, he kept his farmhouse and he left Jesse (Brick) to take care of and maintain the house in his absence. You see Ben took Jesse under his wing as a child when he had a hard home life, he taught him, he helped him, he cared for him like a father and it was very hard on Jesse when Ben left but he understood. He always LOVED the farmhouse and his heart was broken when he found that Ben left the house to Gigi and Rowen. He thought the worst of Gigi and was not very welcoming. Gigi was struggling because she didn’t understand his hostility when Ben said he was an amazing man and everyone in town loved the Sheriff.
Slowly but surely Jesse learns the truth and sets out to make things right. Now starts a love affair that is sweet and fun and exciting. Not only between Jesse and his Georgia but also Jesse and Rowen, his “Little Bit”, watching him with her was adorable. Their initial happiness is short-lived. There is danger in Prescott, Jesse needs to find out what is happening and who is bringing all of the drugs in. Who is stealing from the towns people, who is threatening the serenity they all know and love.
I have to say that I started this series out of order and it was fine, however, you NEED to read them all, just because they are all awesome. Devney Perry makes you feel like you are there, she endears her characters, even when they are being jerks. She makes you feel and she makes you see and you feel like you know them. While I will admit this is not my favorite of the series I still feel this is a 5 star read, all are. Please do yourself a favor and pick up the Jamison Valley Series you will thank me.
I was given an advanced copy for my honest review.
