The weather had never been so strange, but Jodi Parker didn't give it much thought since she'd lost everything to her lying cheating boyfriend. That is until a dust devil picks her up and drops her in a different time and place. One with a few too many handsome cowboys.

This book was a heartwarming tale of love and trust.

With a great cast of characters from the out of the ordinary ranch owner with a mind of her own down to the jealous and spiteful young ladies who are looking for husbands. This story reminded me of an adult version of Little House on the Prairie. It had it’s share of wonderful men and feisty woman who sometimes have to hit those men right on the head to make them see what is right in front of them. With more than a few blossoming friendships that you can see will grow into long and faithful friendships.

Trying to start a new life after a cheating boyfriend and loosing her job Jodi is picked up by a dust devil and unceremoniously dropped on her butt right in front of the ranch owner Maggie. In a whole other time and place, and with that the fun begins.

Maggie brings Jodie back to her ranch and Jodi cannot stop the attraction she feels for the ranch hand Dan. Jodi tries to figure out her feelings and just what she is going to do in this town and time.

Maggie is a feisty lady and does it all her own way. So when Jodi is in need she steps right up and helps her deal with what she has been given. The two women become quick and good friends.

Even though Jodi and Dan take center stage the author wove many a character into the plot without making it confusing and nicely tied up all the loose ends. While you are not left wondering what happened to them all, you are left wondering just what other mischief they will be getting into.

If you enjoy spunky heroines and the men who love them you will definitely enjoy this book. The story flowed nicely and continued to entertain the reader all the way to the end. If you want a quick and spicy cowboy read this is the book for you.

I love having the weather set the stage for this love story. What an original idea! I definitely want to know more about Jodi and Dan and their romance, but I also want to learn more about Maggie. I have this on my summer reading list.
