Tomas is the last of the Harts of the Rodeo continuity series. I know I have missed reading a few of them and hope to read them all. I cried,laughed and smiled throughout the book. Thier were a few love scenes that I skimmed over.
Marine Staff Sergeant Tomas "Tuf" Hart is finally home. He got out of the service two years ago but never came home. He called once and gave his mom his number. Nobody new where or what he was doing. Though a few months ago he was at a rodeo and saw someone from his family but did not stay around to catch up.
On his way home he saw a little girl walking in the road and thier were only a couple of ranches on and he stopped to see where she was going.
Sadie all she said was she was not supposed to talk to strangers. Then her mom was running franticly calling her name. Following her was another little girl her twin. Sadie was running away from home. Sadie is out going twin and Sammie was afraid to be left alone at all, hardly talk to anyone but her family.
Cheyenne Wright the mother he recongized right away. He had a crush on her in high school and asked her out after the third no he stopped asking. Cheyenne and Tuf families did not get along then. She told Tuf that she did not like him but that was a lie. He scared her and excited her at the same time. Her husband was in the war too but could not live with all the anger from it. She moved back in with her father the last year. Thier family now got along in fact her brother is marrying his sister.
The second time he saw Sadie running away he took her back home and told her he had runaway at 6. Sadie then told him why she was always running away to.
After that when he was out running in the morning he would sometimes stop and visit them.
The whole family were working as hard at going to all the rodeos they could to help pay off the ranch balloon payments. They had family meetings and discussed things and how they all could help each other and work together. It was lovely to see them pull together. It was nice to see how all the new couples were doing and changing.
I like Linda story telling. The twins were cute and changed so much. I was really envolved in seeing how Tuf was doing in the rodeo each event.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley.
