Nate and his men, Ryan and Rio are back in the 12th installment of the Cattle Valley series. Years ago in honor of his son, a rich man set up an out of the way community where gay men and women could live in peace without fear of being harmed from those who disapproved of their life style. Several years ago Nate, Rio and Ryan moved to the city in hopes of finding a place the three of them could live their life. Ryan took on the job as town sheriff. Just recently Nate took on the job as the town's mayor.
While his men are proud of Nate for taking on the job as mayor, they can't help but be sorry that things are changing in their relationship. Nate is working a lot of hours helping to get everything ready for the annual Cattle Valley Days and the additional work load is putting a strain on his relationship with Ryan. Rio is making himself sick worried about what will happen in the future, but when tragedy strikes, the men and the town need to stick together and help.
This is the most emotionally powerful packed story I've read from Carol Lynne yet. It was remarkably thought out and written. I've read every book that Carol has written and continue to become impressed with her ability to weave a emotionally driven story about real people. I was also glad to see the Good Brothers and their mates again. I wish the story could have been just a little bit longer so that that aspect of the story could have been delved into a little more, but with everything else going on in the book, it might have been a bit too much.
As always I'll be anxiously awaiting the next installment to the Cattle Valley Series. It seems that there are a lot of couples who are still waiting for their story to be told.
Saddle up, Cattle Valley residents. It's time for the annual Cattle Valley Days, which means one thing. Cowboys, lots and lots of chapped cowboy butts.
We'll be checking in with some of your favourite couples from the past as well as meeting a few new residents. Our old friends from the Good-Time Boys will also be dropping by for the annual rodeo festivities.
So slap your spurs in and get ready for a wild ride!
