ROUGH CREEK is the first book in the BRIDES OF ROUGH CREEK, TEXAS series and I’m looking forward to reading more. Dalton is a veteran and ex-con looking for work when he returns home to Rough Creek, where he finds out his aging parents have sold their small ranch. He knows it’s best for them so his younger brother, Timmy, can live in a group home catering to his disability.
Raney is managing the family ranch after the death of her father years ago but is part owner with her mom and three sisters. Raney seems to have a good head on her shoulders but is not very outgoing or trusting. She was hurt by her scumbag of a fiance that she turned loose after finding out what he was really after.
ROUGH CREEK is filled with rich descriptions of the ranch, horses, and a western setting. The secondary characters are well fleshed-out and added additional dimensions to the story. And the central romance is both warm and satisfying.
This is a great romance to add to your summer collection!
I’ve read several books by Ms. Warner and enjoyed them. I look forward to reading more of her books.
