The Granger siblings thought they'd left their ranching days behind, until fate sends them home to Wrangler's Creek, Texas and into the passionate arms of those they'd least expect
It's some run of bad luck when Sophie Granger loses her business and gets left at the altar all in one day. Desperate to not appear jilted, Sophie begs Clay McKinnon, Wrangler's Creek's smoking-hot police chief, to pretend they're having an affair. But Clay refuses, leaving Sophie to retreat to the family ranch to lick her wounds.
Hoping to leave his disreputable past behind, Clay moved to Wrangler's Creek for a fresh start. But that looks unlikely when Sophie's ex-fiance shows up married to Clay's impulsive kid sister. Overcome, Sophie resuggests the affair but this time for real. Clay is hesitant. City-girl Sophie isn't usually his type. But he can't deny the desire she elicits or his yearning to have her plant her cowboy roots for good.
Those Texas Nights is a quirky and fun small town romance story that takes a look at the everyday life of the town folks, with its trials and triumphs, drama and celebration.
I was in awe with the wit and cleverness of some of the twists of the language and the unique sayings the author used in the tale. The humor is subtle most of the time, having me laughing out loud on several occasion and unexpectedly.
The characters are somewhat peculiar and definitely one-of-the-kind, yet they demonstrate the human mind and the inner thoughts we rarely share with others in a true and straightforward way, open to everyone to hear and see and gossip about, most of the time even without shame and humiliation. I couldn't help but admire the characters and cheer for them, relate to them and share their pain, fear, passion, and adoration.
The drama and tragedies of the town are told from several different points of view, mainly focusing on the Granger family and McKinnon siblings. From business investigation to everyday illnesses, from fear of losing to loving with all your heart, and everything in between the characters faces their life and destinies head on with full speed.
Both Sophie and Clay have baggage from the past that isn't easy to leave behind and effect their life and decisions of their future. The hurt is still there and it takes an effort and time to heal and make things work out as they are destined to be. The chemistry between them was evident to all, the connection obvious, but that didn't make forming a relationship easy or effortless for them.
Delightful storytelling of charming characters and their lives in a small town Texas where everyone knows each other, where gossip is the way to deliver the news, and where lives, loves, and families find their safe haven to nourish and bloom. I'm looking forward to more in this alluring and whimsical series!
