Genre: Christian Romance
Book Description: When Meg Cole’s father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted–more interested in art than in oil–she’s forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father’s empire.
The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father’s thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.
Bo’s determined to resent the woman who’s decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them–her wealth, his unworthiness, her family’s outrage–and earn the right to love her.
But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg’s past. Can their love–and their belief that God can work through every circumstance–survive?
My thoughts: Girl inherits father's business interests. Financial adviser's tell her to cut back and reduce. Girl meets manager of horse farm. She gives him the bad news. He begs for time. They compromise.
That's the basic synopsis. Fortunately, that is just the foundation of the plot. Becky Wade was able to write a story that I began to care about the girl, and the guy (Meg and Bo). Both are good people who are put in a tough situation. They have similar values and recognize that in each other.
The chemistry between the two was great. You could tell from the beginning that they were good for each other. Unfortunately, when one comes from money, Meg, and the other is an uneducated cowboy, Bo, family stick there noses where they are not wanted. At least, I didn't want them there.
This was a fun romance to read. It is clean and both the main characters share a strong Christian faith. They both turn to their creator to face tough decisions and for comfort. I liked that aspect in the story. It was well done.
