FALLING FOR THE LAWMAN
Piper McKinney's got her hands full. Busy saving her farm from developers, and her family from trouble, she has no time for love. Not even for the handsome state trooper who becomes her new neighbor. But Zach Harrison can't ignore the girl next door. Even though he gave up the farming life years ago, Piper intrigues him, and her plight calls out to the protector in him. Piper may not want a man, especially one with a badge, but Zach will show her that he's here to serve and protect…and love.
The thing I love most about Herne's writing is her ability to create an emotional punch with a scarcity of words. Take a gander: "...they moved down the driveway toward the road, not touching, but linked by the joy of a small child between them." (p. 80) Doesn't a feel-good tingle wash over you at those words? This is early on in Piper and Zach's relationship and believe me there is a mountain of obstacles blocking their path but those sweet words gave me hope as I eagerly anticipated reading the rest of their love story. I just had to savor that sentence first. And that's what a Ruthy book is all about. Savoring every last word while images explode in your mind. Absolute bliss. Another not-to-be-missed read by this prolific (thankfully) author.
