Travis has now gotten his act together but Shay does not believe him. The way they end up "accidentally" married is hysterical. There was one thing I did not like about this book and it is the point where Denise almost crosses the line in the intimacy department.
There are two spots that don't go over, but the come right up to the point of being too descriptive. I know teenage girls who read these Christian fiction books, and while some of them know what goes on in a relationship, many of them do not. And this will put ideas into their heads.
I am not saying to not have romance in a story.
Definitely not that! But have it wholesome and pure. Overall a good historical that had funny parts and sad parts. If you are an adult married woman, definitely pick this book up to read. You will thoroughly enjoy it: I received a copy of this book through Booksneeze for review. I did not receive any monetary compensation.

Shay was stood up at the altar by Travis, her high school boyfriend, who left for the rodeo. By the time he figured he goofed, Shay had remarried. Now, 14 years later, Shay is divorced and her ex-husband has died. She's single parenting and running I've already met Shay when I read and loved a previous book by Denise Hunter, featuring Abigail and Wade. She's single parenting and running a ranch on fumes.
It's about to go under when a Founder's Day re-enactment of a pioneering couple somehow becomes real as Shay and Travis are the proxies. It's a fun concept, if a little unbelievable. I didn't mind the pretending it could happen. The problem I had was with the cantankerous Shay. The idea is that she's been through a lot of tough times and has learned by many experiences to not trust or count on a man but I found very little redeeming qualities about her. I liked Travis just fine but I did also have a small problem with keeping up with the quick shift of point of view.
The underlying message is one I loved; Galations - who are we trying to please, man or God? Shay struggles with what other people think of her. This translates to her own daughter and Travis and Abigail are instrumental in helping her with this issue of pride. It's a fun, quick read. I like Hunter's writing but I am much more drawn to Abigail's and Wade's story.
Jan 14, Bluerose's Heart rated it really liked it Shelves: christian , romance. Unfortunately, my memory was a bit vague on the characters, so it took a little while to place who I was actually reading about. I couldn't help but like Shay, but she did get on my nerves at times. This one was a good bit more edgy than I remember A Cowboy's Touch being. I know a great deal of you will love that about it, but others not so much. As a contemporary novel, it just didn't seem realistic. If I had been "accidently" married, it would take a great deal more for me to be willing to consummate the marriage, so I cringed at that whole part.
In the author's note at the back, Denise admitted to "breaking a few laws" to make the story work. I actually feel better about that. As contemporaries, I just have a harder time with them.

Despite that, I think Denise did a great job of making it work! Aug 08, Casey rated it really liked it. It has some of the best dialogue to read and is fast-paced, quick and to the point and escalates the tension so quickly! Shay comes off snarky and stubborn, but I loved her. She knows what she wants and has struggles to overcome, but deep down, she is so completely relatable. More often than not she had me giggling at something she said or did. Oh, of course she was upset with Travis whe 4.
Oh, of course she was upset with Travis when she said it, but I loved her. Oh Travis. What a hero to fall for.
And his love for her melted my heart. From cover to cover, I sighed.
