A GIFT AS BIG AS TEXAS
Molly Griffith is ambitious and only wants to give her little boy the opportunities she never had. Which means moving to Dallas, no matter what Chance Lockhart says! Though being with the handsome rancher does make the idea of small-town life more tempting… Molly has always gotten under Chance's skin, and now that he's bonded with her little tyke, he can't imagine Bullhaven Ranch without them. But the single mom is so focused on her big-city fairy tale, she could miss Chance's offer of the most important gift of all—the love and support of a real family.
I've read dozens of Thacker's books and she always delivers a satisfying story. I love that so many of her's are westerns as a good western romance is not always plentiful. She ranks right up there with the best of them. I love that family is at the root of all of her stories and love the humor that she mixes in.
Molly is a single mother and though I gotta give her points for being a super Mom, I didn't much like that she seemed to think that material things were the most important thing in life. Luckily, Chance is able to overlook that and see the real Molly. Frankly, I felt like slapping her silly a couple of times. Braden, Molly's son, was so adorable. Toss in a kid and a cowboy and you'll hook me every time.
