Book & Author Details:
Saving the Sheriff by Kadie Scott
Publication date: January 23rd 2018
Genres: Contemporary romance
There’s a storm brewin’…
The day his wife died, Sheriff Cash Hill discovered she was leaving him for another man, one she’d loved since before their marriage. How could the single dad ever trust another woman again? But when Georgia’s best friend, Holly, comes back to town, something about Holly’s sweet, sassy vulnerability has his protective instincts kicking in hard.
Holly Jensen left La Colina, Texas with regrets. She’s returned home to work as the new large animal vet and to watch over her best friend’s daughter. But Holly’s knowledge of Georgia’s past could rip a family apart. And she’s reluctant to go to the sexy…and single…sheriff, as he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with her.
Both are faced with a choice…stay locked in the past or allow their reservations to be silenced by a passion hotter than Texas summer nights. Can they learn to trust their own hearts and each other?
I have read previous books from this author, and it is, I think, a mark of her skill that she is able to write so strongly with a completely different tone.
Cash and Holly’s story is delivered with aplomb. Cash has a tendency to be a bit of a jerk when it comes to Holly, but his interactions with his daughter and family are where he is at his best.
As a counterpoint, Holly is a steady, loyal character – at times to her own detriment.
The interaction between the two and the development of their relationship is organic and one that I was able to connect with on an emotional level.
A touching, well written story of loss and second chances.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Award-winning contemporary romance author, Kadie Scott, grew up consuming books and exploring the world through her writing. She attempted to find a practical career related to her favorite pastime by earning a degree in English Rhetoric (Technical Writing). However, she swiftly discovered that writing without imagination is not nearly as fun as writing with it.
No matter the genre, she loves to write witty, feisty heroines, sexy heroes who deserve them, and a cast of lovable characters to surround them (and maybe get their own stories). She currently resides in Austin, Texas, with her own personal hero, her husband, and their two children, who are growing up way too fast.
