Stand-In Rancher Daddy by Renee Ryan ~ Review

Stand-In Rancher Daddy (Lone Star Cowboy League: The Founding Years #1)
Lucie's Review:

CJ Thorn is shocked when his brother skips out, leaving his twin daughters in CJ's custody. He doesn't know much about taking care of children, be he is determined to take care of them with the help of their mother's friend, Molly.

Molly Carson Langley is widowed and never had any children, yet she drives out to the Triple-T Ranch to help take care of her friend's children, Anna and Sarah.

It's up to Molly and CJ to take care of the two girls, will they be able to beat the odds and give the girls the family they deserve?

I love CJ's devotion to his nieces, he loves them dearly, but there are moments when he is clearly in over his head. They lovingly refer to him as "Unca Corny." He's a man of faith and integrity, I liked how he is also a good member of the community, and concerned neighbor, he loves the girls dearly and wants to do his best by them.

Molly helps by watching them during the day while CJ works and becomes very attached to the girls, but a secret in her past prevents her from dreaming of being a permanent member of their family.

I really liked the dialog and interaction between CJ and Molly, though they have known each other for years, they've never worked so closely together before, and I liked their determination to care for the girls.

Overall, a fantastic read, I loved the idea of jumping back in time to the founding of the Lone Star Cowboy League, with many familiar families. Anna and Sarah were so cute, and I liked the added element of a mystery to solve. A book I thoroughly enjoyed!
