Three River Ranch

Three River Ranch (Three River Ranch, #1)Three River Ranch by Roxanne Snopek
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Three River Ranch by Roxanne Snopek introduces us Aurora (Rory) McAlester who is abandoned, pregnant, homeless and looking for a fresh start near her good friend who owns a natural birth center. She thinks she’s found a good place to start over but it turns out another person, Carson Granger, has a claim to the same house. Both are determined to not give up their dreams and thus strike a bargain to share the place until a better arrangement can be made. Being thrust into such close quarters with such complicated situations creates opportunities to work together, build trust, and solve each others problems temporarily. The problem with that is that neither of them are sure that they want it to remain temporary.

Three River Ranch is modern love story that takes on the marriage of convenience plot line and surprises the reader delightfully with the delivery of something that usually works best in historical romance novels. I really loved the charming characters that Snopek introduced me to that were a little off-beat and complexly believable- a 7 month pregnant heroine, an tree-hugger cowboy, and an outstanding cast of supporting characters like “the blister and the blight” who I am happy to share DO make appearances in the other Three River Ranch book series. It’s writers like Snopek who create the happily ever afters we crave and keep me coming back for more of her stories but in no way is her writing or her characters typical and boring.
