The Legacy of Copper Creek (Copper Creek Cowboys, 3) by R.C. Ryan
When Love Walks Through the Door . . .
Like all MacKenzie men, Whit respects three things: hard work, his family, and the wild beauty of the Montana land he calls home. The solitude of the high country is a welcome respite to a loner like Whit. So when a powerful spring snowstorm hits as he’s tending the herd, Whit heads to one of the family’s isolated cabins. The cold winds don’t trouble him. The gorgeous mystery woman waiting inside does.
All Cara Walton wanted was a chance to clear her head. And the forgotten cabin on the outskirts of the MacKenzie ranch seemed like the perfect place to do just that-until Whit arrives. The rugged cowboy quickly melts Cara’s defenses and she’s powerless to resist his strong arms or his tender touch. She desperately wants to trust him, but there’s so much Whit doesn’t know, so much she hasn’t told him. She lost everything once-can she find the courage to risk her heart again?
This was my first introduction to R.C. Ryan and the world of Copper Creek, and I can tell you I am going back for more! I started this book and it immediately sucked me in and grabbed hold. The storyline moved along at a good speed and by the last four chapters I could not put it down for even a minute as I awaited to see how it was going to turn out. Even though I hadn’t read the first two books I was easily enough immersed into the back story and was able to follow that there was an ongoing mystery that was building to the conclusion within this book.
The characters are instantly loveable and I have to complement the chemistry of the main characters, you could feel the electricity between Cara and Whit! I also love the family dynamics in this book. Even though the family has gone through hell and back the family sticks together and is built on solid love and trust. All of the supporting characters truly helped build this story to its wonderfulness. I also liked that both of the main characters were “broken” in some form and they helped heal each other on their way to their happily ever after.
This can be ready as a standalone novel, even though reading just this book will not be enough, you will have to read the entire series. I know I am going to buy the first two and start devouring them immediately!
Overall, The Legacy of Copper Creek was a fun, fast read with good writing enhanced by an enjoyable storyline and characters!
I received an ARC of this book, from NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.
