A Reader's Opinion: RODEO RANCHER by Mary Sullivan

Updated: Feb 4, 2020

RODEO RANCHER by Mary Sullivan


A Charming Story!

What happens when a single mom and her two boys get stranded in the middle of a Montana blizzard? Heartwarming fun and a happily-ever-after. Michael Moreno is a widower living on a remote ranch in Rodeo, Montana with his two children. Samantha Read is a vivacious mom who loves her children more than anything, and would do anything to keep them safe. I think the kids in this story might have stolen the show a bit, they were that adorable and so full of life.

I had a soft spot for Michael from the beginning. He's one of those "rough on the outside, tender on the inside" types who just wants what's best for his family. Enters Samantha, a beautiful women who blew in from the snow and disrupts his life. Worse, he's stuck with her for a few days! Samantha is determined not to be a burden and to make the best of the situation. What happens is holiday magic in February and a sweet and tender story. When they say "opposites attract" they surely had Michael and Samantha in mind. This is a feel-good story that reminds people that beautiful things can come from difficult situations.

A FAMILY HOUSEWARMING Visitors are rare at widower Michael Moreno's Rodeo, Montana, ranch. When Samantha Read and her two sons turn up, seeking shelter in a snowstorm, his kids are ecstatic. Michael is less enthusiastic. Sammy's sophisticated city vibe seems out of place in his country home. But even he can't deny that the bubbly beauty lights up the whole house. Though Sammy doesn't know much about ranching, she recognizes an aching heart when she sees one. Michael and his kids could use some cheer, and she's determined to make the most of their time together. But as the heat between Sammy and Michael threatens to melt the snow, Sammy wonders if Michael's heart could be thawing, as well.
