Holly Jensen had been Georgia Hill's best friend throughout
school and had been brokenhearted when her friend snapped up
Cash. She left town to try to get over it and only returned
to work as large animal vet for the ranchers in her small
town. The last thing she planned was to let herself be drawn
to Cash again and the little angel who had been born to the
union. Will the past be a big roadblock or will Holly be
able to SAVE THE SHERIFF?
Sheriff Cash Hill has closed himself after finding out the
truth about his wife, Georgia. She's gone, but there is no
way he can forgive what she had planned to do to him and
their little girl. Nor does he want to be attracted to
Holly, but the sweet girl she is, has his protectiveness
kicking in despite his plans. Can the past stay in the past
or will it always rear its head and destroy a new fresh start?
SAVING THE SHERIFF is a warm, sweet read but with a couple
of interesting twists that come out of the author's vivid
imagination but could be realistic happenings in today's
world. In this world, there are choices to be made, and the
wrong ones could lead to heartache, the right ones to
happiness. Cash is understandably bitter (you will have to
read to find out exactly why) and Holly is torn, not sure
which way to turn, knowing she could only live with herself
if she does the right thing. But -- will the right thing
destroy her budding romance with the man she has always
loved? The way this book is written makes it an easy read
but still thought-provoking as you wonder what you might do
if you found yourself in Holly or even Cash's situation.
If you love Abigail Owens paranormals, you have got to give
her new contemporary side, aka Kadie Scott, a try. I highly
recommend SAVING THE SHERIFF if you are looking for a well
written, entertaining romance with some wickedly woven
intrigue mixed in.
There's a storm brewing...
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?
Excerpt"If you ever want to talk about Georgia—"
He turned sharply to face her. "I don't."
Holly's eyes widened at his abrupt tone.
Cash stared at her for a good long while. Finally, he blew
out a long breath and pushed his fingers through his hair,
spiking it up. A lock flopped back onto his forehead.
Holly ignored the urge to brush it back for him.
"I don't like to talk about Georgia." His jaw worked as if
he couldn't decide if he was too angry or too devastated to
As much time as she'd spent talking to Georgia, she honestly
hadn't witnessed much of her friend and Cash together. Not
enough to really know them as a couple. Another regret for
the records. Unfortunately, now that meant she couldn't tell
if Cash's refusal to speak about Georgia was from a grief so
deep he had to close it off, or if it was from something else.
If it was anger, then he either knew part of or all she had
to tell him concerning Marcus. That might almost be easier.
She hated the idea of stomping all over his vision of what
Georgia had been if he didn't know.
"I—" He ran his hands through his already spiky hair again.
"I'd better go."
Holly dropped her gaze and willed her sinking heart to get
over it fast. She had no idea what was driving this
reaction. Better to just let him go. "Of course. It's late."
She walked to the door, and he followed, silent and brooding.
He opened the door and she followed him outside, where he
turned abruptly to face her. "I'm so—"
She stopped him by going up on her tiptoes and placing her
lips softly over his. Shock at her own behavior zipped
through her, even as her lips tingled from the touch. She'd
meant for the gesture to be comforting. Perhaps part of her
realized that after she talked to him about Marcus tomorrow,
she might not get another chance. Besides, kissing Cash was
a good way to shut him up. She didn't want his apologies.
