Darlene Panzera is a new-to-me author, and I will be back to read more of her books. I’ve already added the next two books in the MONTANA HEARTS SERIES, SWEET TALKIN’ COWBOY and TRUE COUNTRY HERO, to my always growing TBR pile!
HER WEEKEND WRANGLER was a pleasant surprise with a lot of depth to the characters as well as vivid descriptions of the ranches, the land, the horses, and the vacationers that made me feel like I was there. The crimes were unexpected but necessary to the plot, and there were lots of twists and turns to the story, some expected but others not. My interest was held from the first page to the last, and I felt that I got to know the Collins and Tanner families. This is Bree and Ryan’s story, but the others in both families are front and center or right in the middle of things at one time or another.
The story is filled with family and friends. The small town gossip and feuds added conflict, while the romance filled the pages with a satisfying love story. Ryan’s son, Cody, was a nice addition, as was his dog and her litter of pups. Ryan’s Aunt Mary is someone we each need in our family. The story flowed nicely, and there was closure with the requisite happily-ever-after. I’m happy to know I’ll be back in Fox Creek for the next two books in the series. I can’t wait to read more!
