A Reader's Opinion: WILD HORSE SPRINGS by Jodi Thomas
A Ransom Canyon Novel
A READER'S OPINION
WILD HORSE SPRINGS is a charming story about finding love again and standing up for others. Dan Brigman is a likeable sheriff who has a quiet life without any real excitement. He's one of those old-fashioned kind of men who falls in love and hopes for forever. He'll do anything for the people he loves. Brandi Malone is a little feisty, but only in the beginning. She has a sad secret and Dan wants to help be whole again. There are a lot of main characters in this book. It was hard to invest in any of them fully because when one story started going deeper the reader had to switch to someone else's story. The author did a good job of bringing all the different stories together but I would have liked more focus and depth just on Dan and Brandi's relationship and history. The ending was too rushed and didn't convince me that Dan and Brandi should be together, but I still liked them as characters and was very happy for their ending. I've read one of the earlier Ransom Canyon books and really liked it but I didn't get as invested in this one.
Jodi Thomas has a nice and easy-to-read writing style that I really like. WILD HORSE SPRINGS is sure to please the author's fans and those who enjoy a mild contemporary romance. There are some really sweet and tender moments in this story and I plan to read more books in the Ransom Canyon series.

In the heart of Ransom Canyon, sometimes the right match for a lonely soul is the one you least expect.
Dan Brigman may not lead the most exciting life, but he's proud of what he's achieved: he's a respected lawman, and he's raised a bright, talented daughter on his own. But finding a lone, sparkly blue boot in the middle of a deserted highway gets him thinking maybe the cowgirl who lost it is exactly the shake-up he needs.
After losing her baby girl, Brandi Malone felt like her soul died along with her daughter. Now singing in small-town bars to make ends meet, she's fine being a drifter—until a handsome sheriff makes her believe that parking her boots under his bed is a better option.
College grad Lauren Brigman has just struck out on her own in downtown Dallas when a troubling phone call leads her back home to Crossroads. Her hometown represents her family, friends and deepest hopes, but also her first love, Lucas Reyes. Will Lauren's homecoming be another heartbreak, or a second chance for her and Lucas?
