She takes off with his truck and the blizzard stops them in NV with the twin girls. She's got a job being a waitress and a place to watch while Jessie is away.

I did find myself laughing when the twins were around, or when Evie came in the picture.

Comments:

Bumand
Warning: horse lovers may find parts of this story upsetting. Excellent romance thriller with plenty of snarky dialogue. Believable characters, dialogue and easy to follow story line.

"Somehow, Hallie managed a smile. If the phone had had a cord, she might have twisted it around her neck and hanged herself, she felt so guilty for deceiving this good, generous woman in any way."

"He planned to die an old man, warm in his bed, with a flock of grandchildren fighting over his estate."

“That’s because you don’t really believe there’s another phase of life, waiting out there Beyond. Death is just another way of being born, that’s all. An entryway into a new place.”

"Hallie scooted down a little way, so that their faces were in line with each other. “Am I, now? Well, you just turn your head this way, Cowboy, and see if I don’t kiss you so hard your socks will shoot right off your feet.”"

I was surprised that their son's name did not include her stepfather. Also more information on her deceased father would be welcome.

The town of Primrose Creek would be a great series.

I will re-read this story and look forward to other works by this author.

With the discovery of danger to her children and herself Hallie runs and gets stranded. She has little money and broke down so no transportation. The Cafe that
she walks to offers her a chance for a job (although temporary) and an offer to housesit a home which would give them protection. There are a lot of ups and downs
but the new surroundings are working out bettter than anticipated and everyone is starting to feel at home. But as always the past catches up and lives are at
stake, but with time everything gets worked out and the ending is just as unexpected as always.

True to her style, Miler immediately engages the reader in the plot. This Primrose novel features the modern-day romantic western stories the author is famous for, but it also throws in tangles with mountain lions, the FBI, and a jealous ex-husband who, while employed by the law, ends up wanted by the same law. Great story. One of my favorites.

I read this book with a sense of dread. From very early in the story, you know that a terrible confrontation is coming--and that hung over the whole book for me. I almost stopped reading. The characters are interesting and the story is a rather exciting mystery, but the sense of dread really lessened my enjoyment of the story. And the confrontation, when it comes, is horrifying. I kind of wished I hadn't read it. But lots of racy sex scenes for those of you like them (not me).

I love Linda Lael Miller: in part because we share the name Lael although now that I see her dedications it appears to be her family's last name while it is my first name. Her story is really appealing: her love of animals and the way she handles her children and men. Her women are strong and independent yet find a way to be open, loving and kind.

I would like to see the story line developed a bit further but hey, that's show business!
Enjoy this book. Very entertaining.
Roram
This was a suspenseful romance from the get-go. I enjoyed the characters and the return to the area of the Primrose sisters with some of their descendants featured. I would've enjoyed more information about the generations in between the two books. How about that Linda Lail Miller: have you got any stories from that in between time?
Gribandis
I loved this book. One I hadn't read before it was good story. Chance and Hallie meet at the café and she is needing his help because her truck broke down and she is caught in a snow storm and she and her daughters can't stay in the truck in such bad weather. So enter Chance a kind cowboy with a heart of gold to help her out. All things lead to romance and a happy ending
The book started out okay, but went downhill. The story was predictable, the characters were interesting. What bothered me most was the filler content. It went on and on. About a third of the way into the book, I lost interest. But I kept going in the hopes that there would be redemption. The sexual content was over the top. I finished the book, but don't know why. Very disapointing!
