All’s Fair with Love and Cowboys

Kristine Lynn. Tule, $4.99 e-book (348p) ISBN 978-1-961544-84-0

Lynn (Accidentally Dating His Boss) opens her Marshall Brothers of Texas romance with a cozy small-town cowboy tale. After Maggie Newman became convinced that her high school sweetheart Bennett Marshall cheated on her, she left him and the entire town of Deer Creek, Tex., behind for an engineering degree and a thriving career in San Antonio. But after her father dies, unexpectedly leaving Maggie his ranch, she’s back in town and dreading seeing the man who shattered her heart. Bennett, now a successful rancher, was prepared to marry Maggie and doesn’t understand why she rejected him. As their incendiary chemistry reignites, they’ll need to figure out what happened to ruin things in the past if they hope to have a future together. Maggie is a stubborn heroine whose refusal to accept help or find compromise often gets in her own way, but her lingering love for Bennett still comes through, and a stellar supporting cast sets the stage nicely for future installments. Readers will be eager to return to Deer Creek. (Apr.)
