After making a deathbed promise to her father, Joelle Winslow is ready to seize the NYC business opportunity to take her jewelry designs global. All she needs to do is cash out her inherited half of the family ranch in Montana—which means convincing her childhood rival, and now co-heir, to sell or buy her out. Sparks fly when Matt, no longer a gangly, solemn teenager, but a tall, handsome cowboy with work-hewn muscles, is unwilling to give up on the legacy he's worked so hard to keep without a fight. And part of his bargain includes Joelle staying at the ranch with him through Homecoming Weekend.
The son her father never had...
The Winslow ranch rescued Matt Locke from a life in the foster-care system. As an orphan boy adopted by Clark Winslow and groomed to take over the ranch, he wants nothing more than to marry, raise a family, and continue the legacy of the man who became a father to him after his parents’ tragic deaths. Matt can't imagine a life anywhere else, and he definitely can't afford to buy Joelle out. Can he convince the dark haired beauty to not walk out on him and her home a second time?
Cowboys and Montana with happily ever after...
After a couple of heavy reads, I wanted something a bit lighter to read on a rainy autumn evening. Home For Good is part of a series, that I followed before, stories filled with families, legacies, and love that lasts.
Matt and Joelle had some misunderstandings from the childhood their shared, creating lots of competition, animosity, and unnecessary walls between them.
But now, as adults, they finally have a chance to get to know each other, clear up the air, and the attraction flares. It is a sweet and clean story, with dignity, loyalty, honor, and values. Just a good, solid read about small town Montana, families, friends, and love that has to face some obstacles before finding the home with each other. ~ Three spoons
