Big Sky Country by Linda Lael Miller
The illegitimate son of a wealthy rancher, Sheriff Slade Barlow grew up in a trailer hitched to the Curly-Burly hair salon his mother runs. He was never acknowledged by his father...until now. Suddenly, Slade has inherited half of Whisper Creek Ranch, one of the most prosperous in Parable, Montana. That doesn't sit well with his half brother, Hutch, who grew up with all the rights of a Carmody -- including the affections of Joslyn Kirk, homecoming queen, rodeo queen, beauty queen, whom Slade has never forgotten.

But Joslyn is barely holding her head up these days as she works to pay back everyone her crooked stepfather cheated. With a town to protect, plus a rebellious teenage stepdaughter, Slade has his hands full. But someone has to convince Joslyn that she's responsible only for her own actions -- such as her effect on this lawman's guarded heart.

3.5 stars. A lovely story about love, forgiveness, trust, reconnecting, and of course horses, cowboys, truck, a dog and even a cat. You take a young woman scarred from a crime her step-father committed which hurt almost her whole town. Give her the strength to come back and try to make good on it. Then you take an outcast illegitimate cowboy sherif who never knew the love of a father. He had to watch his father's legitimate son raised wealthily and respected while he and his mother struggled. You put these two childhood friends together among old boyfriends, ex wives, angry towns people and insecurities and you have one wild ride mixed with country charm.
A great beginning to a series I plan on following. I can't wait for the next book. Good old fashioned romantic comfort reading.
