Harmony Cross has come back to Dawson to figure out who she is now after the accident and the pain pills that she was addicted to. When she was young her happiest memories were of Dawson, where her family would spend their summers, it's also where she met Dylan Cooper.
Dylan is busy raising Cash and Callie, since he became their guardian when their mother died.
When Harmony falls in love with a wild horse, they strike up a deal. Dylan will help her with the horse, if she helps him with the kids, with the added bonus that it will keep the town matchmakers quiet.
Dylan is a likable hero, plus he's a cowboy! He willingly and unselfishly took on the responsibility of raising two girls who were not his own. He is determined and knows what he wants.
Harmony is the one who grow the most through this journey. She's starting over again, learning to cope with her past and opening up again. I loved how she reached out the people at the old folks home and learned to crochet!
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. It has characters that you can root for the whole way through, and side characters full of color, as well as the whole Cooper clan. It engages quickly and carries an upbeat rhythm throughout, even though it deals with tough subjects. This is the final Cooper Creek novel, and though I'm sad to see their story end, I'm glad that it ends happily!
