The death of his wife four years earlier left Travis Bennett a shell of the man he used to be. With his dog by his side, Travis raises his three children, manages his business, and works as a ranch hand. But every day, every minute, is an aching emptiness.

Wesley Ryan has fond memories of the small Ozark town of El Dorado Springs. Seeing it as a safe place to put his failed relationships behind him, Wesley moves into his grandparents’ old home and takes over the local veterinary clinic. An early morning visit from Travis and his dog stirs feelings that Wesley seeks to push away—the last thing he needs is to fall for a man with baggage and three kids as part of the package.

Life, it seems, has other plans.

Everything about this story is positive! What a pleasure to have read it. This story is set in modern day America with the believes of the olden years where the townspeople is concerned. Here you have a sort of newcomer to the town, Wesley, the vet. While his grandparents lived there their whole lives he only spent his childhood there, moving to the city and making his life there. Then you have Travis; a widower with three kids who've lived there for many years. We also meet Wendy, Travis' Inlaws, Wesley's parents, the kids, and Jason, whom are all very likable people, especially Wendy, or funny, like Jason. We also see the negative side of small town USA. The 'outsider' attitude and the homophobia. All of it is tied together to form a wonderful, unforgettable story that will stay with you for quite some time after you finish reading this awesome book! Loved it!
