Naomi is a single mother and her daughter Gracie is all she has. She lives and works on the Cortez ranch, but it's time for a change. She's finally able to purchase her own property, so she can make her dream of owning a bed and breakfast come true. Things are looking up for her and Gracie, but then she runs into Lucas Cortez, her teenage sweetheart. He is back in town and Naomi knows she's missing something in her life, love. Lucas left Naomi and never returned. They still have feelings for each other, but it isn't easy to forgive him for what he's done to her and trust him again. Will she be able to get over the past, so that they can finally have their second chance?
Lucas is back at the family ranch. He left years ago and didn't feel welcome in his hometown any longer, so he stayed away for as long as he could. It's time to help his brothers with their business, but there are still people who would be glad to see him leave. His return should only be temporary, but then he meets Naomi and knows he can't stay away from her. He also easily gets along with her daughter Gracie. Will that be enough to find a way back to the love of his life? Or will the secrets of the past mess things up between them once more?
Comeback Cowboy is a wonderful romantic story. It's clear from the beginning that Naomi and Lucas are soul mates, they're destined to be together, but fate has dealt them a cruel hand. There's something about the past Lucas hasn't shared with Naomi and it already made him lose her once. I felt bad for him and kept hoping she'd give him a second chance and that the truth would come out. Lucas and Naomi are both sweet and caring people and I liked them very much. Gracie is adorable and fortunately she's a resilient child. I enjoyed reading Sara Richardson's dialogue a lot, it made the main characters of her story come to life incredibly well.
Comeback Cowboy is a story about complex family relationships, secrets and true love. I love stories about those subjects and think Sara Richardson has written a great book. I enjoyed the gorgeous descriptions of her setting, her honest and deep way of describing emotions and the moving way she writes about the willingness of her main characters to sacrifice their own happiness for the people they love. The result is a fantastic complete love story. Comeback Cowboy is captivating, gripping and charming and I absolutely loved this amazing book.
If you love countryside romance you will like Comeback Cowboy. It's the second book in a series, but it can easily be read as a standalone.
