There’s a storm brewing…
The day his wife died, Sheriff Cash Hill discovered she was leaving him for another man, one she’d loved since before their marriage. How could the single dad ever trust another woman again? But when Georgia’s best friend, Holly, comes back to town, something about Holly’s sweet, sassy vulnerability has his protective instincts kicking in hard.
Holly Jensen left La Colina, Texas with regrets. She’s returned home to work as the new large animal vet and to watch over her best friend’s daughter. But Holly’s knowledge of Georgia’s past could rip a family apart. And she’s reluctant to go to the sexy…and single…sheriff, as he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with her.
Both are faced with a choice…stay locked in the past or allow their reservations to be silenced by a passion hotter than Texas summer nights. Can they learn to trust their own hearts and each other?
I think Kadie Scott may be one of my new favorite authors. With Saving The Sheriff she does another great job in creating a wonderful romance with a twist and turn. Whereas The Wrong Kind of Compatible is just very funny, this story has a lot more depth and drama.
Holly is a large animal vet (you know, the tough doctors who feel inside cows up onto their armpits…) who returns home after her studies to work in the only veterinarian of La Colina. But returning home also means facing the people who condoned her for her actions years ago…
Sheriff Cash Hill is living a solitary live with his four-year-old little daughter Sophie. After his wife Georgia died a year ago, he found out she was planning on walking out on him to go back to the love of her life.
Since Georgia and Holly were thick as thieves, Cash figures that Holly knew about Georgia’s wanting to leave him and therefore wants nothing to do with her. However, Holly has promised Georgia to look after her daughter and that is what Holly is intending to do. Even if it means confronting her high school crush Cash Hill. Because Georgia broke one BFF-rule: you never, ever, go after the man your BFF has her eye on. ..
So, Holly wants nothing to do with Cash, and Cash really doesn’t want to be near Holly. But in a small town there is not always the option of staying out of each others hairs. And with little Sophie in the middle, there is bound to be an altercation…
When the love of Georgia’s live enters the mix, the difficulties reach a new level. Can Holly tell Cash of the secrets she knows? Or is it better to have the secrets buried with the past? And what will the town think of Holly’s past?
Heartbreaking, wonderful and keeping you up at night. Five out of five stars from me. With a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
