Turning bachelors into Casanovas, one cowboy at a time…
Meg Ripley may run the local diner, but she has never been one to get involved in the small-town craziness of Willing, Montana. Now suddenly she’s entangled in it? In addition to harboring a pregnant runaway, she’s been enlisted to transform scruffy bachelor cowboys into husband material for a reality dating show. Including her ex-boyfriend, and the only man she’s ever allowed herself to love, Owen McGregor.
Owen is still devastatingly handsome, and the passion between them hasn’t faded with time. Unfortunately, neither have the issues that drove them apart. But that doesn’t mean Meg is ready to turn him into the perfect man for someone else! Because despite their past, Meg suspects that Owen is still the one.
I’m so happy to be writing again! I took some time off from my computer to plan weddings, experience the thrill of being an adoring grandmother, travel and learn to play the violin. I even went to Blue Grass Camp! I also sewed twenty-eight quills (but who’s counting?).
The Husband School was inspired by a stop in a small Montana town during one of my husband’s and my annual cross-country road trips. Combine our love of small Western towns with the memory of running a café ourselves plus the many “what if” questions a writer naturally generates, and with a little luck and a whole lot of time, a story was born. This story. About a little town trying to save itself and its way of life.
I once lived in a town so small that when I went to a yard sale, the woman running the sale knew what I was going to buy before I got there. She was right!
I hope you enjoy Willing, Montana, and the people who live there. The world needs more love stories, good neighbors and happily-ever-after romance.
