GENRE: Sweet romance
your heart to Sweetwater
Daisey Winslow loves
her small town of Sweetwater, but wonders how she’d fare living and working in
a big city. Just as she’s decided to take a job in New York, along comes Deputy
Sheriff Jack Samson.
Her polar opposite,
Jack left the mean streets to return to Sweetwater’s peace and quiet, ready to
find that special someone and raise a family, and the more time Daisey spends with
him, the calmer her itchy feet get and the duller the big-city lights shine.
When she comes across
the diary of her seven-times-great grandmother, reading her poignant words with
the simple message, follow your heart, make Daisey question her decisions.
But Daisey’s not
quite ready to give up on her dreams before she’s even started living them,
however…what if the dashing lawman can fill her head—and her heart—with
different, closer-to-home desires? Ones they can share?
Readers of Jenny
Hale, Carolyn Brown, and Susan Mallery will love this fun, flirty, poignant,
and feel-good small-town romance.
Rose gave a sigh of pleasure. “Ah, that’s our new deputy
sheriff, Jack Samson. Just arrived yesterday. Don’t you love a handsome lawman
in a fancy hat?”
“Yeah.” I forced myself to turn away from the
mouth-watering, outstanding view and focus on Cousin Rose. “Spill.”
She’s always in the loop. Everyone came to the Prairie Rose
Café, thanks to the welcoming smile and warm greeting of the proprietor. Her
food—the best in North Dakota. Her chicken and dumplings are amazing, and don’t
get me started on her world-famous cinnamon apple raisin pie. My only defense
against being as wide as I am tall is running. Though I do have an admirable
petite shape, sort of Jessica Rabbitesque in the right light.
“He’s single and worked for the NYPD. Can you believe it?”
Rose shook her head with feigned surprise. “And he chose to come back to
Sweetwater. Fancy that, eh?” She gave me a smug smile like she’d just placed
her Ace of Hearts on a winning poker hand.
“Huh. Very odd choice.” I wouldn’t let her trump it.
“Samson. Old family name. He related to any of them?”
Rose nodded. “Yup. All of them. Came over on the Mayflower,
like us. His parents moved to New York when he was five or six, so he wasn’t
with us long and it was before either of us were born.”
Deputy Sheriff Samson not only wears a hat well, he’s one of
our own. I can only hope he’s prepared to share all that big city expertise.
The deputy had stopped and was helping Tim, who was
struggling with the oversized banner. Even from across the street it was
obvious that Jack Samson was in prime condition. Made me want to head to the
gym for a complete workout. I’m a bit too much of a fan of Rose’s apple pie and
my personal favorite, rum-soaked-raisin oatmeal cookies. I’d already packed a
few dozen for the wagon train trip. No point in taking chances.
“He’s a bit old for you,” Rose pointed out, arching a
well-groomed brow at me. “Mid-thirties, I think. The scuttlebutt is he’s come
home to Sweetwater to settle down with no intention of leaving. Unlike you.”
More movement out of the picture window caught my attention.
A familiar black and white cat shot out of the narrow gap between the Barnes
& Sons Hardware and Alice’s Flower Shoppe. Five-year-old Luke Barnes
bounded out next, short legs pumping, his blond hair standing straight on end
in the newest rage. Knowing both ends of Main Street were already blocked off
to traffic due to the Ferris wheel perched at one end and the music stage on
the other kept my heart rate from accelerating. Besides, Luke was always trying
to corral Bandit, the aptly named one-year-old feline who was forever on the
The new guy let go of his end of the banner he’d been
helping Tim with and it slumped to the street in a colorful heap. He jumped to
the little boy’s aid, dashing after the runaway feline and nabbing the tiny
creature in a few broad steps. Then he leaned down and handed over the
squirming furry body to the young boy, making sure Luke had a good grip on his
constant buddy before letting go. Hmm. Good reflexes too. Didn’t even lose his
awesome hat in the proceedings.
The deputy patted the boy on the head, then headed back and
finished helping Tim secure the banner. Paragraph two: A diner at the Prairie
Rose Café witnessed an incident in the street this fine July morning and
reports the newly arrived Deputy Sheriff Samson rescued Luke Barnes’s cat,
Bandit. Little does he know that it’s a daily occurrence and he’d best invest
in a ladder forthwith.
If I was a romance author, oh my, what I couldn’t do with
the new hero. I laid my hand over my heart, imagining the juicy adjectives I
could so easily spill out onto the page. Triple sigh. Words like dashing,
scintillating, powerful, alpha…
