My Review: 4 1/2 stars
This was a great novella to just jump right into. Good characters, enjoyable storyline. Who doesn't wonder about the one that got away, right? Most people do. In this case, Cooper and his buddies wonder late one night. Then they set in motion a plan to bring the girls that got away to their ranch to find out it it's not too late. When Cooper sends his invitation, he's thinking about one sister, but later - he realizes that it should have been the other one he sent the invitation to; they're twins, but so different. Once Julia steps off the plane instead of her sister, Mari, Cooper is excited to have Julia there. But once Julia realizes the invitation was meant for her sister, she wants to leave. Cooper has to do some fast talking and gets Julia to stay for the night. Then things start to happen and Julia decides to stay for the week, with no further plans. Cooper sets about changing her ideas and plans, because now that he's had her - he doesn't want to let her go. This was a really easy read to get into. As I already said, the characters were good, the storyline went along quickly. There were some hot, passionate moments in the barn and other places, and that always adds to the enjoyment, expecially if the characters connect. Wow, did they! Cathryn did a great job with this, and I'm looking forward to reading more of her work.
