EXCERPT

Bella started walking, and Mason fell in step beside her. For a while neither spoke, and then they both spoke at once. They stopped and turned to each other.

“Sorry,” Mason said. “Go ahead and finish what you were saying.”

“Oh, okay. I was just going to ask what you plan to tell people about that, um, kiss.”

“What do you want me to tell them?”

She frowned at him. “That’s not fair. You turned the question around on me.”

“Fine. I probably won’t tell them anything. It’s none of their business.”

She nodded as though she approved of that approach. “But why did you do it?”

Mason shifted his weight from one foot to the other. “Would you believe me if I said I got caught up in the moment?”

She shrugged. “You know, it’ll probably be in the newspaper.”

“I don’t think it was that newsworthy.” He tried his best to downplay it, but deep inside embers still burned for her.

“I was referring to the election. Everything you do is news. If you drink coffee from Fill-It-Up Joe, it’s news. If you get your hair cut, it’s news.”

“Wow! I had no idea this town was that boring. If that’s what qualifies as news, I’ve got my work cut out for me as mayor to liven things up.” But that would come after he gave their economy an infusion of new life to pump it up.

“Mason, be serious.”

“What? I am. By the way, what did they say about my last haircut? Was it a little too short in the back?”

A Moment to Love
(A Whistle Stop Romance, Book 1)
by Jennifer Faye
 
The notorious cowboy meets his match…

Cord Lawson instantly distrusted the young woman in a smart suit who’d just arrived in Whistle Stop. She was very pretty and clearly a city girl—but with memories of his failed marriage still darkening his mind, he’s determined to steer clear! But she’s sniffing around his land—land that had been in his family for generations. There was no way he’d let it go—even if the bank was threatening to foreclose, and selling could give Whistle Stop a new lease on life.

Alexis Greer had one mission in mind—close the deal on the Granger estate; without it, her father’s land development company would go bankrupt. But the word around town is to keep clear of Cord and to stay away from his precious land. What in the world had happened to cause such a handsome cowboy to live such a solitary existence? However, determination was Lexi’s middle name, and she just had to keep on trying to breach Cord’s barriers, appeal somehow to his head and heart—even if it put her in danger of losing both of hers…to him.

When trouble strikes…Whistle Stop pulls together

For Ella Morgan, moving to Whistle Stop is a chance to start over, put her horrific past behind her. But now she’s living in a mountain cabin—in dire need of renovation—that her grandmother left her, along with a sizable tax bill. Her job teaching school isn’t going to cover it. She needs cash, and soon.

Volunteer firefighter Tony Granger has returned to Whistle Stop to run the family ranch and be guardian to his orphaned nephew, Johnny. But being a single parent isn’t coming easy, and he’s worried sick he won’t succeed with his plan to adopt the boy, especially if Johnny’s grades don’t improve. He needs a break, and fast.

When Ella finds out Tony doesn’t have a partner for the Dancing With the Firefighters’ benefit—which is offering a large cash prize—and he hits upon hiring her as Johnny’s tutor, it looks like their problems might be solved. But taking dance lessons to win the competition sets alight a burning attraction between them. Can they let go and learn to trust again, or will the scars of their pasts still haunt them?

A Moment to Dance is the second book in the Whistle Stop Romance Series by Jennifer Faye.  Although you can read this book as a stand alone, it would be more enjoyable if you read A Moment to Love first.  Jennifer introduces several of the towns characters in the first book.

 

Ella Morgan has recently moved to Whistle Stop after her grandmother passed away, and she inherited her cabin.  A cabin that needs more work than she can afford.  She is working as a 4th grade substitute teacher, until a permanent one is hired.   Ella is hiding a secret, and she is terrified that if anyone finds out, especially Tony Granger, that they will find her repulsive.

 

We were introduced to Tony Granger in book one, A Moment to Love.  Tony is a Firefighter in Whistle Stop, he runs a ranch, and cares for his nephew Johnny.  He has a lot on his plate, and feels inadequate at being a father to his nephew.  Tony has a few demons of his on.  So when he meets Ella for the first time, he feels guilty for being attracted to her.

 

Out of the first two books in the series, A Moment to Dance was my favorite.  I believe it had something to do with, Patch, the orphaned puppy, and Johnny.  Kids and dogs do it for me every time!  Jennifer Faye has a way of making you feel at home in her stories.  The plot was set at a nice, slow pace.  I liked Tony and Ella’s blossoming romance throughout the story, but it was predictable.  Predictable is not all that bad, because I enjoyed reading it.

 

I do feel that the issues, and demons that Tony and Ella were dealing with could have been delft with more swiftly in the story.  Communication.  I wont say what those issues are because I don’t want to give too much of the story away.  I liked Tony’s mother, Carlota.  She is a sweet woman that loves her son, and wants to see him happy.  Like A Moment to Love, A Moment to Dance, reminds me so much of a Hallmark movie.  I love Hallmark movies!

 

I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys Jennifer Faye’s writing, small town romance, and a sweet and clean love story.

The notorious cowboy meets his match…Cord Lawson instantly distrusted the young woman in a smart suit who’d just arrived in Whistle Stop.

There was no way he’d let it go—even if the bank was threatening to foreclose, and even if selling could give Whistle Stop a new lease on life.

Alexis Greer had one mission—close the deal on the Lawson ranch; without it, her father’s land development company would go bankrupt. But the word around town is to keep clear of Cord and to stay away from his precious land. What had happened to cause such a handsome cowboy to live such a solitary existence? However, determination was Lexi’s middle name.

My-review-button-brown1

‘A Moment to Love’ is about the third or fourth book I have read by Jennifer Faye.  I was excited to start this series, because it is takes place in a small town called Whistle Stop in New Mexico.  I have visited New Mexico, and it is beautiful.  So it wasn’t hard for me to visualized the scenery as I read.

 

Cord Lawson has lived his whole life in Whistle Stop.  The Brazen H, his ranch, has been in his family for as long as he could remember.  His great, great grandfather founded the first town, Haggerty, which is now referred to as Ghost Town.  Cord keeps to himself, and the town folk believes him to be stubborn (which is true),  and have a bad temper.  So they don’t get to close to him, and he keeps his distance from them.  He has had a rough time of it in the last few years.  He lost a chunk of his money to his ex-wife in a divorce, and he has been spending his days trying to save his ranch.  The last thing he needs is the bank, and a beautiful, blonde land developer trying to take his land.

 

Alexis Greer is the land developer that is trying to buy Cords land.  She was their to buy the land, save her fathers company, and go back home to New York.  She didn’t count on being attracted to the man whose land she was sent there to buy.  Alexis is a city girl at heart, but after spending some time in Whistle Stop she starts thinking she could get used to the small town life and the residents.

 

My Thoughts:  I liked this story, and I adored Cord and Alexis.  I liked the story line, and I feel Jennifer Faye did a great job of fleshing out the H & H’s character.  I liked the lazy, slow feel of the town, and her description of Whistle Stop and it’s residents.  I have always wanted to visit old, deserted Western towns, and Haggerty (ghost town) appealed to me.  I love that Cord felt the need to fight to keep his land, because he promised his father and grandfather he would take care of it.  He felt that he had let them down.

 

I liked Alexis also.  She’s a fighter, and she doesn’t give up easily.  She loves her father, and wants to protect him because he is still recovering from a heart attack. She has a good heart and wants to do what’s right, but is torn between her father, and following her heart.

 

This was a sweet story, with a few heated moments with kissing.  I felt the chemistry between Alexis and Cord sometimes, but it didn’t jump off the page.  While I liked and enjoyed reading this story I felt some of it was repetitive.  Cord and Alexis were constantly repeating why she was there to buy his, and why he didn’t want to lose it.  I skipped over some of those parts.  I would have liked to have seen their relationship blooming, instead of being told that it did.  With that being said, I will continue to read the rest of the books in this series.

 

This book would make a perfect Hallmark movie.  I thought that the whole time I was reading it.  I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys small towns, sweet romance, with a slow, steady feel, and happy endings.  Now I am off to read the next in the series.

 

*I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
