THE COWBOY'S REUNITED FAMILY by Brenda Minton
Ten years ago Jana Cooper left her husband Blake and took their daughter with her. Now she's back to ask Blake for help with their daughter who is ill, but she is also hoping she can have a second chance with the only man she's ever loved. She has changed but she will have to find a way to prove to Blake that this time she's returned for good. Blake Cooper has spent the last ten years looking for his daughter and angry with Jana for leaving with only a note on the counter. Now she's back and of course he will do anything to help his daughter but how is he suppose to sort out his feelings about Jana. He definitely still has feelings for her and he's still very attracted to her but how can he ever trust her not to leave again? His heart couldn't take it!
Another excellent addition to the Cooper Creek series. This was such an endearing story, one that will keep you reading from the first page to the last. The idea of a wife leaving her husband with their child and being gone ten years was something that was hard for me to understand, but, I know we all make bad choices, some are bigger than others. I really appreciated how Blake handled it all and I loved watching Blake and Jana interact. The chemistry between them was so rich. I really liked the way they tried to deal with the situation in a loving rather than bitter type way. God can change hearts and use even messy situations for His glory. Going to Dawson and especially Cooper Creek, is always like making a trip home and seeing old friends. Angie Cooper is always cooking up a meal and the boys are always buying cattle, breaking horses or welcoming a new foal. I just love the Cooper Family. In fact all the folks in Dawson are warm and loving people. If you haven't been to Dawson yet and gotten acquainted with them, you don't know what you're missing. When you get a chance to go, be sure to stop by the Mad Cow for a slice of Vera's famous pie, and tell 'em I said hello!
