Maggie Duffin is all set to inherit her father's farm supply store in Amarillo, Texas. With only girls in her family, and Heidi now married and living at Three Rivers Ranch, she feels a sense of duty and family loyalty. Which is honorable—if it wasn't for her boyfriend, cowboy Chase Carver.
Chase is and always will be a cowboy at heart. He breaks up with nineteen-year-old Maggie at the request of her father, but he's miserable. He can only keep himself away for five months before returning to the store and the girl he loves. He believes that if he can prove to Maggie's father that he can provide a stable, secure life, that Chase and Maggie can be together again.
So he sets out on a quest to find his own ranch. But with financial trouble and personal issues around every corner, both Maggie and Chase will have to rely on their faith to find their happily-ever-after.
My Rating & Thoughts: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (5 stars)
This was an enjoyable story giving readers the love story of the couple who began Grape Seed Ranch. Chase & Maggie were first introduced in Ms. Isaacson’s story, The Lady of Three Rivers, they were dating but when Maggie parents disapproved of their pairing they broke up. It is now five months later and the love for each other is just as strong. Chase knows that Maggie is the one for him but he wants her father’s blessing and takes his concerns to heart. He sets out to become the man her father feels is worthy of Maggie and show that he can provide for her. He faces obstacles along the way but through his determination, his willingness to seek help and the support of Maggie, what seems impossible happens. Maggie’s father gives Maggie an ultimatum, Chase or the family store? This ultimatum challenges to her fight for what she really wants. I enjoyed the interaction of these two characters and thought their story was sweet and inspiring.
