Stranded in the middle of the road in big sky country, Wyoming, at eight months pregnant isn’t exactly what Sofie Pennington had planned when she decided to pack up and surprise her sister. Fly Creek is a fresh start for her, one where she’s finally free from her controlling ex and can figure out this whole single parent thing. First, though, she needs to get there. To her shock, her rescuer comes in the form of a frustratingly handsome cowboy.
Dan Rigby is on his way out of town—for good—when he stumbles across a very pregnant Sofie. She’s the most obstinate, exasperating woman he’s ever met…and the most appealing. She drives him crazy, in more ways than one. When her sister suddenly has to leave, and Dan becomes Sofie’s welcoming committee, they find themselves growing closer despite their desire for conflicting things. Can Dan convince Sofie that Christmas miracles do happen?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley and I also purchased a copy.
I love Dan. He is the quintessential cowboy. He is a fixer and a rescuer. His big strong arms rescue Sophie as he is leaving town just as she is arriving. Sophie is Emily's sister and is running to Fly Creek after divorcing her controlling husband. She is 8 months pregnant and determined to go it alone. Emily has to leave town when her husband is hurt and asks Dan to look after her sister. Well his escape is further delayed so "Dependable Dan" to save the day again.
The road to Dan and Sophie's HEA was full of road-blocks and potholes. There were times when I had an extremely hard time understanding Sophie. Dan is such a wonderful character and I couldn't wait to read his story. This story was written in a dual POV format. Usually this helps me to understand the character a great deal but I still felt a disconnect to Sophie. I feel this maybe because I never have gone through the situation that the character had.
While you don't have to read the prior stories to enjoy this one, I would highly recommend it. It gives a rich history to the characters and Dan's story. I was intrigued by this story and was sad to see it end. I REALLY hope that Levi gets a story (maybe with Becky?) to really complete the Fly Creek series. This town takes care of it's own and these two need it I feel.
This is a charming story that anyone could read. I totally recommend it.
