From Goodreads: Conner Creed knows exactly who he is: a hardworking rancher carrying on his uncle’s legacy in Lonesome Bend, Colorado. Maybe a small-town cowboy’s life isn’t his dream, but he owes the man who took him in as a kid. Until the identical twin brother he’s been estranged from for years reenters his life.
Conner struggles with identity issues as he gets to know his wilder brother. And then he meets Tricia McCall, a beautiful woman who knows a thing or two about living someone else’s dreams. Together, they just might find their own dreams right here in Lonesome Bend….

Note: This is the 2nd in this series by Linda Lael Miller with Conner being the Creed in the lead. This was such a sweet,down home love story that makes you smile when finished reading.
What I Loved: Conner and Tricia are both great leading characters. The attraction between them is sizzling but they both deny it from the beginning. I must warn that this is a slow building romance, they only have casual conversations in the beginning of the book. Valentino is the best dog-gone character in the book. If I didn’t know better, I would say that dog was matchmaking like nobody’s business and having Sasha and Natty help.Plus, there is a good dose of Brody in the book and that is a great thing!
What I Liked: I am excited about the next book in the series: The Creed Legacy after getting to see more of Brody (need the story behind where he has been) and Carolyn (whose friendship with Tricia I loved). Plus, getting see Boston and Melissa again in this book was really great. I just can’t wait to see how it all ends.
Complaints: Not enough Natty and Sasha (she was fantastically precious).
Why I gave it a 4: This story just made me feel good all over because of the richness of the characters. I really cared about what happened to Conner, Tricia, Natty, Sasha, Brody, and Carolyn.
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
