A Time To Rebuild
It's gone-everything Annie Hennessey, and two generations of Hennesseys before her, had worked so hard to build. The devastating forest fire didn't just claim her family's Sweetheart Inn-it also burned half a town whose livelihood is wedding tourism. Now the struggle to rebuild is just beginning, and Sam Wyler's sudden reappearance isn't going to make things any easier on Annie.
The Rancher's Homecoming could be described as a nice easy going read; the story line flowed. It had the typical Harlequin controversy, broken-hearted characters, and a love story.
What set this book apart was a lovable grandmother that you can't quite figure out. Is her mind fading away or does she have selective memories? After their inn burns down in a raging forest fire, the Hennessey women are left homeless and without the family business, and searching for an anchor in the madness.
Most of the residents of the little town of Sweetheart have been forced to move after the fire raged through their town known for weddings. The Hennessey women are determine to rebuild the bed and breakfast that has been passed down generation to generation if it's the last thing they do.
Life gets bumpy along the way, especially when Sam shows back up, determined to help the residents of the town rebuild. His motives are suspect and his attraction to Annie stronger than ever. In a little town that still has hitching posts outside the local bar, will she open up her heart to the one who broke it?
For those of you who love Harlequin romances, you'll love this one.
Six weeks since the fire and the lingering smell of smoke still burned like acid in the back of her throat. Annie Hennessy covered her mouth and nose, remembering the days immediately following the fire when they were forced to wear face masks and hazmat suits as they waded through the waist-deep ruins of the inn that had been in her family for the past fifty years.
A figure emerged from the shadows. A man. He wore jeans and boots and a black cowboy hat was pulled low over his brow.
At last he stood before her, tall, handsome and every inch the rugged cowboy she remembered.
