Her grandfather wants her to move home, and Molly thinks she just might. His ranch will be a good place for her sons to grow up, a place to escape big-city influence. Then she learns--from a stranger named Sam Dakota--that her grandfather is ill. Possibly dying. Molly packs up the kids without a second thought and makes the long drive to Sweetgrass, Montana.Once she arrives, she immediately has questions about Sam Dakota. Why is he working on her grandfather's ranch? Why doesn't the sheriff trust him? Just who is he? Despite everything, Molly can't deny her attraction to Sam--until her ailing grandfather tries to push them into marriage. Moving to the state of Montana is one thing; entering the state of matrimony is another! Some borders aren't so easy to cross.
Well-developed emotions and appealing characters help freshen this familiar contemporary of an embittered cowboy, a wary divorc�e, a rebellious teenager, a ranch in trouble and�oh, yes�a hooker with a heart of gold. After learning that her beloved grandfather is ill, Molly Cogan decides to move to Montana and live with him, bringing her two boys, one of whom is undergoing a difficult adolescence. Once there, she tries to fight her feelings for ex-rodeo rider and ranch foreman, Sam Dakota, while mysterious acts of vandalism threaten to drive them from the homestead. A second love story, involving a prostitute and the town lawyer, becomes entwined with a contrived subplot about a militia group that, for reasons never fully made clear, desperately wants this particular ranch. Although the plot construction can seem a little forced, Macomber (This Matter of Marriage) is a skilled storyteller who turns it into an engaging, unabashedly sentimental love story. Author tour.
