Publisher's Summary

Abigail and Amanda may have married brothers, but they have almost nothing else in common (and really, they never did get along very well). After their husbands both pass away within a year of one another, they have no reason to interact. Their connection drops to an awkward phone call on birthdays and an exchange of holiday cards. 

Until an eccentric uncle of their husbands' leaves a massive cattle ranch to the women's minor children...if they work the ranch themselves. A ranch that's located near a small town on the Wasatch front that isn’t too keen on outsiders.

They're both going to turn the bequest down, clearly. It’s not like either of them could properly raise their kids or find love again in a backwater province like Birch Creek. But when things at home change dramatically - for both moms - they decide to give it a try...just for the summer.

What could possibly go wrong in a mere three months? (Or more importantly...what might go right?)

Love everything about this story!!

My only dislike was that it ended before everything was wrapped up and answered -- the next book can't come out soon enough! I love stories that show the complications of life and how good people are doing the best they can. The love interests are 😍. And the drama of being a Mama is on the nose.

As always, great readers. Baker has excellent taste 😁!

Great potential but falls short

This could have been a great story but it became simple and high school ish. I liked the idea of the situation but the characters were shallow and boring. I kept waiting for something exciting or meaningful to happen but no.
