With his father's rodeo legacy to continue and a prosperous spread to run, Walker teenage consequences!
Parrish has no time to dwell on wrecked relationships. But country-western sweetheart Casey Elder is out of the spotlight and back in Parable, Montana. And Walker can't ignore that his "act now, think later" passion for Casey has had consequences. Two
Keeping her children's paternity under wraps has always been part of Casey's plan to give them normal, uncomplicated lives. Now the best way to hold her family together seems to be to let Walker be a part of it-as her husband of convenience. Or will some secrets-like Casey's desire to be the rancher's wife in every way-unravel, with unforeseen results?
This part of the Parable, Montana series didn't feel quite as flowing as the previous ones. I still very much enjoyed Casey and Walker's story, but parts were a bit too much or just not quite enough. Casey is a famous singer and she has settled down in Parable to enjoy life and take it easy after many, many years on tour. The thing is, she has just happened to settle down in the same small town that the father of her two teenage children lives in (and she knows it). To make it more complicated, Walker knows he's the father, has tried to be the loving "uncle" to them as they grew up, but the kids have no idea that he is their father. This is were the story started to get a little questionable. Walker really isn't the type to let someone convince him his kids were better off not knowing he was their father.
On the other hand, the reaction of both kids was perfect. It was an incredibly well written scene and the ones that followed as they came to grips with the fact they had been lied to, were just as good. Both kids were great and I loved them.
Have you noticed anything I've said concerning a romance yet? No? Well, this was the big downfall. The romance didn't quite seem to be the primary focus in this one. It was more about the kids - and I loved their story, but I wish I had seen more of Casey and Walker falling in love with each other all over again.
