Montana Mavericks: Rust Creek Cowboys continuity series.
Rust Creek Falls in the previous month had flooded and the town is now starting to build back. Their are a lot of rebuilding projects that need to be done. Lots of people are trying to help each other where they can.
Dean and Nick Pritchett are from Thunder Canyon to help rebuild. They are carpenters and work for their father building furniture usually.
Nick gets Dean to go with him too the bar. Dean would rather stay in and read. Dean sees Shelby Jenkins and comes back the next night right before they close. He helps were when a drunk gets out of hand. Dean really likes her when her car won't start he offers to take her home if it is too far to walk her home.
Nick is careful around women after his ex-fiancé broke it off and told him her baby was not his. He gets Shelby to go on a picnic with him up by they get along find but Shelby does not tell him a lot about herself.
Nick sees a need at the daycare center. Their backyard fence and playground got destroyed in the flood. The community got the fence up but playground is too expensive right now to get. The daycare is not charging anyone for the summer to help out the community.
Nick decides that he would pay the rest of the playground and gets his brother to help build it with him. He meets a cute little 5 year old Caitlin and she wants a place outside to read. Nick sees a way that he could do that with a couple of hours. Caitlin helps Nick by handing the screws, bolts and nuts to him. Nick is surprise when her mom comes to pick her up.
Shelby is a bartender. She got pregnant when she was 16. The father got his friends to destroy her and said she slept around with lots of guys. Some people still think she is loose and look down at her still. She is careful and does not date. Her mom helps share the daycare of Caitlin when they both work at same time she goes to the daycare.
It has a great community that turns out to help each other when they can whether it is bringing food, searching for lost ones, rescuing people and animals from the flood. I want to keep going back to Rust Creek falls. I want to see who the new mayor will be.
There is one love scene that I skipped over, lots of drama, romance and cute Caitlin who is a charmer.
