About the Book
Charlene “Charlie” Evans is ready for a new beginning after a terrible car accident leaves her unable to compete in the Rodeo World Championship. With her dreams lost in an instant, she must find something new to do with her life.
Struggling to make ends meet, Charlie’s prayers are answered when she receives a job offer as foreman for a ranch in another state. She gladly accepts the offer hoping to find something to pour herself into and take her mind off the possibility of never being able to have children.
So what if she sort of passed herself off as a man to get the job?
But, what if the rancher really wants a man for the position of foreman after all?
After being dumped by his fiancée, Dan Richards is offered the ranch of his dreams from his terminally ill uncle for a price he can’t refuse. Dan jumps at the chance to get away from the pain and embarrassment of being jilted by pouring himself into a ranch he has loved since childhood. But, when he arrives at the ranch it’s not what he had hoped or remembered. The ranch is in shambles.
With no experience—or any idea of what to do—where does he go from here?
Will Wildflower Ranch become a place where they can both start over and turn their lives around? Or are they destined to live a life of failed dreams?
Surely life and love will blossom on Wildflower Ranch.
I TRULY BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS A PLAN AND THAT WE NEED TO FIND PEACE IN THAT
I enjoyed this clean Christian romance story that has a cast of delightful characters, charming circumstances and several laugh out loud moments. It is a wonderful reminder that sometimes plans and dreams can change, God is always in control and sometimes all we can do is just take what we’re offered and make the best of it. Charlene “Charlie” Evans was in the end stretch, seconds away from her competition for world finals when everything changes in a split second due to an accident. Dan Richards is going to make a dream of a ranch that had belonged to his terminally ill Uncle. What pulls two people together for a new beginning maybe a chance at a lifetime of happiness in the end. This story shares that even Christians must face heartache, disappointment, anxiety and unexpected circumstances. It isn’t what happens in life; it is how we handle it that matters. Favorite line: “Charlene nodded numbly. This guy was no more a rancher than she was a horse.” The story is part of a series but does not leave you on a cliffhanger. I look forward to reading more of the Wildflower Ranch series.
