New park ranger Daphne Baum is a reformed good girl. Breaking free from her overbearing family as soon as she turned eighteen, she’s been on her own ever since. The life of a park ranger, moving from park to park, suits her just fine. Though still a rule follower, she’s okay with a little sin in her life.
Every generation of Hill men has its black sheep. The general consensus among the family is that Odin Hill is the lucky bastard this go around. At seventeen, he blew out of town like an angry tornado only to return fifteen years later withdrawn and secretive. Living like a recluse in the hollows in the Smoky Mountains, he's happy to keep to himself and is content to let locals believe he’s the town weirdo. Odin prefers the company of his pet pig to the nosy citizens of Green Valley.
When Daphne discovers Odin might be committing nefarious deeds on park land, she vows to find out the truth behind the handsome, yet chaotic, loner. Will the stranger help the ranger discover the difference between being good and doing the right thing? Or will they find themselves on opposites sides of love?
'Stranger Ranger' is a full-length contemporary romance, can be read as a standalone, and is book #2 in the Park Ranger series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.
This book starts off a little slow, but once it got going I couldn’t put it down. I love the characters, they are quirky and adorably awkward. Makes me want to go back to the smokies.
I adored Daphne and Odin’s story. It was full of humor and sweet moments. The two are truly great characters. They’re easy to relate to and care about.
I would definitely recommend taking this journey with them.
Love this story!
I am so in awe of this series from Daisy Prescott. The world she creates within the Smartypants Romance arena is so on point and relevant.
This is the story of Daphne and Odin.
Both characters have a shaky past and I admire the quirkiness of both of them. I admired the courage of Daphne and her innocence in discovering her new world.
Odin is an enigma! It was a delight to find out more about his history and the way he became the character he is today.
The chemistry between Odin and Daphne is both swoony and funny. I loved the humor and the situations that both Daphne and Odin find themselves in throughout the story.
It was also fun to see past characters make an appearance and how seamlessly they wove into the fabric of Green Valley and all of its inhabitants. I cannot wait to see what comes next from Ms. Prescott.
