My Review:

This book had my heart at "chicken farm" . Having raised chickens previously in my life I knew I would like the book! After starting the first chapter i thought to myself..."This is what country songs are made of! " Our main character Libby lost her job, her boyfriend, and her dog died. It was the perfect start to a cowboy romance.

The story line was girl moves to the country and has to make her way on her own. The Mystery in the book was really interesting and kept the story moving quickly. I stayed on the edge of my seat for most of the book waiting to see what would happen to poor Libby next!

The romance level was on spot and the intimate scenes were tastefully written. You'll definitely fall in love with the main characters. (I loved Luke!) Joanne's writing was just fluid and fun and the humorous moments in the book were really funny.

This is one of those books that I kept checking to see how many pages were left because I didn't want it to end! I think Ms. Kennedy had it right when she wrote this book and I look forward to reading more of her work!
