Mia Cooper's life took a drastic turn when her DEA partner was killed in
the line of duty and Mia's arm is badly injured. She returns home to
Dawson to recover and find out who she is without her job. Slade
McKennon is a Dawson Sheriff who plans to keep his eye on Mia and make
sure she's safe. Mia and Slade grew up together so things should be easy
between them. But Slade is now a widow raising a son on his own and Mia
was his wife's best friend. When long buried emotions begin to surface
neither are sure exactly what to do about them. But one things for sure
they both have a love for his son. Will Mia finally find what she's
looking for? Can Slade see Mia as something other than his wife's best
friend and his best friends sister?
I just love going to Dawson.
It is so much fun to see all the familiar faces. The Cowboy Lawman is
Mia's story. She was adopted into the Cooper family and has an
independent streak a mile wide. I think her struggle of having to have
people help her and the emotion of a possible job loss definitely rang
true. Especially because Mia's identity was her job. Slade was another
one who could easily be a Cooper. Strong yet tender, you could see why
he was best friends with them. I also felt like the whole aspect of
'friends' to 'something more' was done really well. It had to feel
awkward to Slade and Mia and as a reader looking on, you understood why.
You'll find a bit of suspense and as always, the Cooper family humor.
It is always a joy seeing Granny Myrna. She is just a gem. I think this
story brought the Romans 8:28 verse to life. 'And we know that all
things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are
called according to His purpose'. I encourage you to head on down to
Dawson. Be prepared though, it's the kind of place that, when you leave,
begs you to come back!

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
