Big Lizard Bottoms—where getting hitched is a local industry—is not any place Lindsey Attwood, a play-it-safe paleontologist who’s sworn off romance, ever expected to find herself. She’s here posing as a horse psychology student to help recover dinosaur tracks stolen from a local guest ranch. After only a day at the ranch, things start spiraling out of control. Her horse-therapy horse hates her, she’s been adopted by a huge stray dog with a bad reputation, and there’s this local rancher who has her all moonstruck. After years of digging around in the past, Lindsey’s wondering if it’s finally time to see what the present has to offer.

    " Absolutely delightful and original. Couldn't put it down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 2/14/2014

    " This book was recommended to me by one of my best friends. It's what I term a "fluff" book. This is not a degrading term. It just means light reading, requiring not a great deal of deep thinking. Just plain entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 2/12/2014

    " This one was definitely the best of the trilogy. I had never even heard of Wingate until I stumbled across someone selling a number of books, including the second one in the trilogy, Lone Star Cafe. I got that and checked the others out from the library to read the complete series. I have to say, that dollar spent was well-worth discovering these stories! I especially related to the character Lindsey, a single mother who has been burned in the past, and is afraid to love again. As Lindsey gained insight during a horse psychology class, I felt like I was taking in the same lessons. After reading the previous books, I was concerned that the stories might get too predictable like other romances tend to, but this one took a couple of unexpected turns that made me get into the story even more. After this series, I'm definitely a new Lisa Wingate fan, and plan to look into some of her other series soon! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/2/2014

    " A funny romance. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miki | 1/29/2014

    " You know how you like the taste of whipped cream, but once you swallow it, you can't remember exactly how it tastes? This book is like that. I liked it while I was reading and could hardly wait to finish it, but when it was done, I realized I couldn't remember anything about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 amypete | 1/25/2014

    " I've heard the Tending Roses group of books by this same author are really good, but my library system doesn't have them yet. I like Wingate's characters and writing. This book goes together with Lone Star Cafe, if I remember right. There is a bit of mystery, a bit of romance, and a lot of charm in these easy reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 1/21/2014

    " This book was a gift from my friend Paula. It was a very fun and fast read, typical Lisa Wingate!! Nothing profound, just a good story. A solid Texas romance novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 12/15/2013

    " This is just light reading, but it is really fun...and should be given somewhere between three and four stars. I enjoy Lisa Wingate, and some of her books run deeper than this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole Lessard | 12/10/2013

    " Cute romance read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 11/24/2013

    " Predictable "love story". Nice read if you don't want to think. The bit about fossils caught my interest but it was just a small backdrop for the romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristiena | 11/15/2013

    " This is just a cute little romance book. I was just in the mood for an easy read and a nice little story. This book caught my attention because of the title, and it ended up working just fine. "
