Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . . not for a cowboy to steal her heart.
Having lived through her parents’ endless string of “matrimonial bliss gone wrong,” Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She’s been bucked o_ that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt’s footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.
Rancher Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He’s pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that’s a challenge that Jarrod can’t pass up.
Jarrod sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy’s stubborn heart. How can he show her that a cowboy’s kiss lasts forever? For the good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much fun to witness.

Looking for a Place to Belong
Anytime I can spend time inside a Debra Clopton book, I know I will be richly rewarded! There is laughter, great characters, sweetness and a wonderful storyline that has me coming back for more....and wishing the book had just "one more chapter". This book was no exception. I was especially grateful that there was an epilogue so I could revel in the "aftermath" of the end of the series. I will miss the Wishing Springs characters. I want to visit there! The people became so real to me! In this last book, Cassidy comes back to Wishing Springs just looking for something warm and familiar after her painful divorce and a concussion that made her evaluate what she wanted for her future. Her Aunt Roxie was the only one who gave her love & support when she was growing up since her parents were always such a "train wreck". Her memories of Wishing Springs and the people there are what are going to get her on a path to her future. She inherits Roxie's house so she's going to make a B & B out of it. She doesn't need a cowboy next door to steal her heart. She's done with men! She's known Jarrod since she was young and he broke her heart once before so she's not going back there again! Jarrod, on the other hand, has seen his brother find wives and settle down. He's starting to see how lonely he is and then Cassidy comes back. He knows things didn't end well with them when he ran off to Montana. This time he hopes he can change her mind. He just can't understand why she's being so stubborn about it........ I loved these two characters and their story! I also loved all the other characters of Wishing Springs. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this book.....then sit back and dive into the pages of a great story!
