About the Book:
A restaurant heiress, a dating app, and the cowboy just down the street she's sworn off...

May Sotheby is the heiress to the ritziest restaurant in Grape Seed Falls. In business for over a hundred years, her father wants the restaurant in Texas Hill Country to stay in the family for generations to come, so he lays down some hard news for May: She has one year to find a husband or the restaurant where she's worked since a teen will go to her already-married sister.

Frustrated with the cowboy-only dating scene in Grape Seed Falls and needing to find a beau fast, she joins an online dating website, TexasFaithful, hoping to find her soul mate without having to relocate--or deal with cowboy hats and boots. She has no idea that Kurt Pemberton, foreman at Grape Seed Ranch, is the man she starts communicating with.

Kurt can't get off the ranch much, so TexasFaithful is ideal for him to meet potential women without wasting time. As he nears fifty, he finds his patience for finding the right woman waning, and the Christian dating website fixes all that.

When he learns May is the beautiful woman he's been corresponding with, he couldn't be happier. May, however, is scared off by the close proximity of Kurt, the big white cowboy hat, and the expectations of her family. If she'd known she was courting the cowboy all this time, she might not have done it. Will May be able to follow her heart so she can keep Kurt and her restaurant?

My Rating & Thoughts:    🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟    (4 stars)

I enjoyed returning to Grape Seed Falls and getting to know more members of the community. This one features a ranch foreman and a restaurateur. May has grown up in the family restaurant business and hopes to one day take it over. When her father announces his retirement plans he throws a wrench at her, by saying she must have a husband prospect or he will turn to business over to someone else. This may seem harsh but as May later realizes there is a reason for this. With no man currently in her life she joins a dating app and comes across Kurt’s profile. They both share a love of cooking and end up teaming up in the local cooking competition. As they get to know one another they begin to fall for one another quickly. Their time together ends up being challenged due to May’s busy schedule as she begins taking more and more of business over. This forces both of them to decide what is really important in their lives and choices have to be made. I was able to connect with both characters and I felt for May when she felt pulled in multiple directions. Kurt was easy to like, he showed maturity when it came to his relationship with May and was accepting of her schedule for the most part. However there was one pivotal moment when May’s actions made me mad. The solution to their situation bothered me too, yes changes needed to be made but did they have to be such a drastic change in a lifestyle?
