A sweeping small-town romance about love, loss, and a Montana legacy from USA Today bestselling author Devney Perry.

I met West Haven when I was eight years old. He taught me to play poker when I was nine, and we made paper airplanes together when I was eleven. He kissed me when I was sixteen. He was the best part about my family’s summer vacations to Montana. He was the boy who stole my heart. I was twenty-three when life ripped us apart.

Years later, I’m breaking my vow and returning to the ranch, not as a guest but its new owner. West might want me gone, but even he has to admit the only way to save his family’s legacy is with my help.

It’s not easy working side by side and facing those old memories. But this situation is only temporary. We’re at a crossroads. And as long as I don’t let myself fall in love with West Haven again, maybe this is our chance to put those ghosts to rest. Maybe this time we’ll finally be able to say goodbye.

Cowboys ROMANCE Small-town Truffles

Perry has been on my list of authors I’d like to try after reading raving reviews from several fellow book bloggers. I am so glad I picked up Cross Roads. I loved this story from the ranch and cabins to the story that brought these two back together.

I can see why my friends love this author. She knows how to tug at your heartstrings and make you laugh in the next sentence. This is a second chance romance that never really happened the first time around. Instead, it shared the story of how they met as children. He was the rancher’s son and she was a regular summer guest.

The set up was great from the heated first meet to the seeing them work together as the author took us back through the years and brought us forward. The ranch, particularly the lodge and cabins, are in trouble, and Indy intends to save it. West Haven, feels betrayed by his father, and doesn’t know what to do with his feelings for Indy.

If you love a romance with all the feels and a powerful story tied to it, you’ll love CrossRoads. Samantha Brentmoor did a fantastic job voicing Indy. Indy is a strong, business smart gal who has a vulnerable side when it comes to West. I’ve only listened to Connor Crais once before and, to be honest, wasn’t impressed, but his narration for West was spectacular. He was perfectly suited for this strong, complex man.

While this story offers an HEA and left me satisfied, Perry also introduced secondary characters, like West’s brother who has me eager to return to Haven River Ranch.

    Oh this looks interesting and I love when there are side characters that have me wanting to revisit the world the author has created.

    I’ve read a few of hers but quit after trying to read a series by her where the books overlapped and it ruined it because I had just read the first book and I already knew so much of the plot which by and large had the same plots. I just said not again. But now you make me want to try again. Thanks!

        I bought the audio from your page. Not sure when I’ll get to listen but I’m trying again. Thanks!
