THE COWBOY'S RETURN
THE COWBOY’S RETURN (4.5) by Susan Crosby: Returning home after three years isn’t easy for Mitch Ryder. He avoids his past by becoming a handyman for sexy, struggling farmer Annie Bernard. But hiding the fact he’s from the neighboring family, who is trying to buy Annie out, may be fatal to the burgeoning feelings between them. Hardworking Mitch has been a gift to Annie. He is good with her son and a gentleman — almost too much of a gentleman for her liking. But she can sense he’s also keeping secrets. Crosby’s tale is part romance, part mystery and all great drama. The tension between her stars is palpable, and their internal struggles are emotional and relatable.
