ONCE A COWBOY ... (4) by Patricia Thayer: In the latest Quilt Shop story, Alisa Merrick is reunited with Army veteran Matt Rafferty. The couple had a short affair before Matt dumped Alisa with a vague note and left for the war zone. Now discharged and suffering from PTSD, Matt is determined to adapt to civilian life. Unusual circumstances force the couple to overcome their differences and save a homeless boy. The ease with which they become foster parents feels unrealistic, but the story is heartwarming and the characters are interesting and likable.
