Jewel had suffered severe ridicule and persecution because of her ex-fiancé. It had been over a year since that dreadful day. However, it wasn't all bad. Unbeknown to her ex-fiance', she had a beautiful baby daughter. A daughter she felt pressed to earn a good living for.
After much searching online, Jewel found the perfect opportunity. A ranch in Arizona needed a photographer, plus nearby, another ranch had a top notch barrel racing trainer. Her parents offered to pay for the trainer and her horse's room and board. She could train to get back into the Nationals, while indulging in her new passion at the same time.
Tanner was shocked when his ex-fiancé bumped into him on the ranch he had been working at. What is she doing in Arizona rather than in Oklahoma where she lived? In her arms was a beautiful baby girl. He wasn't an expert, but it didn't take a rocket scientist to calculate the months and realize that was his daughter. Did she think she could keep his baby from him and his family? If so, she had better re-think this situation.
This is a poignant story of love, betrayal, judgement, redemption, family values, and integrity.
It steadily moves along, keeping the reader captivated. Although the story is somewhat predictable, there are enough twists to make it emotionally touching and interesting.
The only thing I can think of I didn't like, was how slightly drawn out the main points were, plus, slightly repetitive.
The character were described in a way, the reader felt he/she knew them. The scenes were detailed in a way they were easily visualized. The Book Cover and Title were perfect in depicting the story and were appealing to "the Browser".
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating for this book.
*This was gifted me with no pressure for a positive review. This is my honest review.
