Curly-haired Libby Tyler never stops smiling until her beloved boyfriend suddenly forces her out of their home and away from his adoring kids. When she learns he dumped her for his flighty ex-wife, Libby s sadness turns to fury and she very publicly smashes his truck with a golf club, earning herself a trip to a mental health center for some rest. Handsome, hazel-eyed deputy Sam Winters has been sober for two years. Afraid of backsliding, he lives in the mountains and keeps his distance from people. Yet he never forgot Libby, his former colleague at the sheriff s office whose charm and cheerfulness always warmed his days. Now Libby s back, igring the townspeople s whispers (and her ex s restraining order) while desperately trying to make Homecoming Ranch a successful event destination. She keeps causing trouble for Sam, but he finds her smile more beautiful than ever and his touch gives her thrills she s never felt. Could these two lost souls mend each other s broken hearts?
