Review: Balancing Act by Patricia Davids

Its a family romance on a ranch. With twin little girls, bulls wearing nail polish and throw in cattle rustlers. Makes for a fun enjoyable story.
Cheryl Steele goes to her sister wedding and has to drive aways to get to her ballet performance. She has a starring role in the traveling ballet.  Angie tries to make her sister promise to go out to the ranch where they used to live.  Cheryl keeps telling her no but finds her almost to the ranch and she turns the car around in the snow and hurry down the road so she won't be late and she almost runs a cowboy on his horse down. Cheryl is able to advoid him but wrecks the car and traps her foot.  Sam Hardin is finally able to free her foot and they ride his horse to the ranch.
Cheryl is stuck their till the roads opens in a few days and finally gets to hospital and her foot has two broken bones.  Cheryl is fired from the ballet, she's leased her apartment out for the 6 months she was on tour and her wallet is missing.  Cheryl does not want to tell her past and that she used to live here in this area years ago.
Sam is cattle rancher and architect raising his twin girls.  His mother baby sits for him when he has to go away to work. But she has to go help her daughter who has three children and just got put on bed rest for the rest of her pregnacy.  Cheryl agrees to stay and help take care of the girls while he works for a while.
The twins are adoreable and get into lots of things they shouldn't and want her to stay longer. Cheryl falls for them quickly but does not want her past mistakes and family history of trouble to be found out.  She is afraid someone will reconsise her.
I had a great time seeing what happens next in the story. Its clean feal good story. I want to read more from Patricia Davids. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
