Barbara “Barb” Sessions is a wrangler and sometimes babysitter at the local dude ranch, Saddle Up. She meets lots of “weekend dudes”—older men, couples in love and families with children, but never any men her age, except for losers. Could it be because she’s always in jeans and cowboy boots? She can’t even remember the last time she wore a dress and heels. On top of that, one of the wranglers fancies himself in love with her. Will she ever meet Mr. Right? Dirk Adams is new to town and new owner of the Mercy Ridge Large Animal Veterinary Mobile Clinic. This is his first real job as a veterinarian. He grew up in Seattle. He isn’t much used to small towns other Stanwood where he did his internship and Pullman, the campus of Washington State University where he was a student. He’s heard that small towns often don’t warm up to new people moving there, and now he’s getting ready to replace their beloved, retiring Doctor Nick. How will they react to his new ways?
