Lives meant to be together
Our Time: Baytown Boys
Once again Maryann Jordan gives us another emotional romantic story with a touch of suspense. Colt and Carrie are perfect for each other. The way everyone knows it but them leads to you rooting for them to realize how much they are meant to be together.
Once I started it I couldn’t put it down.
A trip back to the Eastern Shore and the lives that fit so nicely together.
Ready Made Family
Colt Hudson, Sheriff of North Heron County, has spent the last five years crushing on the pretty waitress at the diner. Colt inherited a huge “family” home from his grandparents, but has no one to share it with. Thinking Carrie can’t possibly be interested in him, he longs for what he thinks he can’t have. After his friends and coworkers tease him relentlessly about his “crush”, Colt decides to take the first step in hopes that Carrie will say yes.
Carrie Beaumont is a single mom to an 11yr old son, Jack. Carrie has dedicated her life to making sure Jack is loved and cared for. Carrie even works extra shifts to make sure she has money to provide for Jack. Carrie has certainly noticed the handsome sheriff, but doesn’t think he’d want to date someone who has a child. When her duplex is compromised in a fire, Colt comes to the rescue. He offers his home to Carrie, her son, and their elderly neighbor. As their friendship turns into more, Jack unintentionally places his life at risk while helping a friend. Can Colt convince Carrie to give their “family” a chance, while protecting them and his town?
Another successful Baytown Boys story! I always enjoy the glimpses into the lives of previous characters. I really related to this story as a single mom to a son. I too, put my life on hold to ensure my child wasn’t neglected and knew he was loved. I worked endless hours and still do! My parents were life savers, helping whenever I needed it. Like Carrie, I put my heart and soul into my child hoping to raise a morally, productive adult. I LOVED that they included their elderly neighbor in their “family”. So sweet! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
I love this series! This is definitely one of my favorites. A little suspense and drama along with a great love story. Colt was so awesome! Not only in his love for Carrie but also in his love for George and Jack. Loved the epilogue,brought tears to my eyes.
