Synopsis
Welcome to Valentine Valley!

The Silver Creek Rodeo is in full swing, and everyone’s talking about the rancher who came to town…

Bed-and-breakfast owner Amanda Cramer wants nothing more than a quiet, private life. Well, she wants guests too, but after suffering her share of unwanted notoriety, she’s gotten comfortable hiding out in her inn . . . perhaps a little too comfortable. When her newest customer arrives—tall, dark, and breathtaking—Amanda begins to question her self-imposed exile.

Ex-rodeo star Mason Lopez knows all about the limelight. He’d avoid it if he could, but since one last ride could mean saving his family’s ranch, he’ll go all in. When he gets to Valentine Valley for the Silver Creek Rodeo, Mason checks into the Connections B&B and finds himself immediately drawn to the beautiful, reserved woman who owns it.

Mason has only three days in town . . . can he convince Amanda to open her heart to him and welcome the world back in?

My Review

I received a ARC copy in exchange for a honest review, thanks to Avon Books and Edelweiss. 

When The Rancher Came To Town is a charming and sweet novella, that takes place between books “A Promise at Bluebell Hill” and “Sleigh Bells In Valentine Valley”. It only consists of 100 pages, so a short love story, but what a lovely one it was. I read this in just half a hour this morning. What a great way to start my day. Its a story a a cowboy, who is looking for sponsors to help out their ranch and is about to participate in the local rodeo, and boy can that man ride a bull. The heroine of the story, Amanda, suffers from fear of crowds, due to a past experience that still haunts her. She keeps to herself and doesn’t like being around reporters, but when she starts to fall in love with Mason, he helps her believe in herself again and realize that inner strength was always there. I loved having Mason and Amanda as a couple, they really complimented each other pretty well, and I loved the small town setting and seeing their romance blossom despite the old ladies (who will make you laugh). Overall this is a great addition to the Valentine Valley series, and full of witty humor, charming characters and a sweet and lovable story to warm your heart. WELL DONE EMMA CANE!!
