Summary

Self-described city girl Lexie Walton is a million miles from nowhere and completely out of her element.

Park ranger Kyler Clemons had loved the vibe and the beach of Mustang Island. Getting caught with her boss’ wife, however, got her transferred to the wild and remote Davis Mountains State Park - literally in the middle of nowhere. Now after four years, she’s forgotten about the beach and has embraced the mountain life, feeling like a local. She hangs out at the Cottonwood Creek Bar and Grill. She watches football with Mark Walton. She’s taken up birdwatching and stargazing as hobbies. She is perfectly content. No stress. No drama. And no desire to date.

Then Lexie Walton waltzes into her life.

After losing her cushy job in Austin - and unable to find another one - Lexie accepts her parents’ offer to join them and her brother in running a rustic lodge and restaurant in the remote Davis Mountains of West Texas. Hesitant to commit to such a drastic move, she agrees to a trial run - two months. Two months would get her through Christmas and the New Year. Her friends thought she was foolish to make such a move. There was no nightlife, no parties, no spin class, and no green smoothies. And no chance of dating. That was a plus, however. After her breakup with Crazy Cathy, she wanted no part of the dating game. This remote area would do nicely.

But then she meets this cute, tree-hugging park ranger who turns her world completely upside down.

Texas lover

Yea , Gerri! My wife , the love of my life,and I met while stationed in Alaska 36 years ago...cross country skiing and extreme camping.... We were together 3 days when she asked me to follow her to her next duty assignment in San Antonio, Texas. I eagerly said yes and the following year, moved out with her. We live on a10 acre farm in Pipe Creek, in the Hill Country area of Texas, full of rescued horses, dogs, cats, chickens, and other creatures, including our own bird garden. We are surrounded by 6000 acres of protected land and appreciate the way that Gerri Hill tells her stories about Texas. The state is so large that each section holds something unique and glorious. She's got the environment and the people right on. Love the Davis Mt and Marfa. Go see the Marfa lights. xoxo!

Pure romance. Not bad, just not my cup of tea.

I have been binging Gerri Hill's work. I started with the crime/detective novels. I really enjoy that combo of romance and mystery. So I wasn't sure if I would enjoy a pure romance novel. It wasn't that I didn't enjoy the listen. Abby Craden is a great narrator. The characters are enjoyable. The romance is sweet. As always Gerri Hill does a wonderful job of setting the wilderness scene, but I am just not a huge fan of pure romance. Throw in a good mystery or something paranormal and I am in.

I Have Every Gerri Hill Book and Audible Book

Another classic story of wounded souls finding their soulmate. Park ranger Kyler Clemons transferred to wild and remote Davis Mountain State Park. It turned out to be just the place she needs. When her best friend Mark’s sister Lexie Walton comes to help her family at the rustic lodge they own and run, both their lives are turned upside down. A marvelous depiction of the joys of nature and the wilds. Another Abby Craden gold star performance. Recommend.

Fun

While a little too much was made of some concepts to keep them apart a bit longer, it was a good tale. I liked the characters and the backdrop. Fun story.

Loved this!

Wonderfully flawed characters are my kryptonite. The description of the area was expertly done. A real romance with today’s complications is always refreshing. This story feels so good! Especially now ❤️ thanks Gerri! Abbey did a superb job as always

Sweet but uneventful

I kept waiting for some conflict or some reason to keep listening but nothing really happens. I do quite enjoy Abby Craden. She could make a laundry list enjoyable...which at times is what this felt like.
