Publisher's Summary

Lauren had been raised to not be afraid of anything, and she lived by that code, that is until her dad died and left everything in her hands. Now she’s not only in charge of her two younger sisters, but she’s running a full-blown Texas ranch. Caring for a thousand-acre ranch has its ups and downs, physically, mentally, and financially. All she is looking for is a little break. What she doesn't have time for is someone who will only complicate her life further.
Chase is back in his hometown. Helping his dad with his veterinary practice is high on his list. So is being with the lovely Lauren West. Years ago, he found a unique way to bind them together. Now all he has to do is prove to her that he’s the right man to spend the rest of her life with.

An enjoyable first story in this series

Loving Lauren, the first story in Ms Sanders new series, The West, is a sweet , touching story .
Three sisters that have experience the tragic loss of their mother, and later , their beloved father.
Lauren, the oldest of the girls, took charge at a young age, and did everything she could to keep them together and their ranch in their possession.
Seven years after their last loss, Chase returns to town. Now a veterinarian , he is back to help his Dad in his practice. But there is more to him than that. He and Lauren were friends and have a history.
This story is about family, not only the importance of the members, but also about the dynamics between them. It’s a story about survival and the steps some will take to keep the family together. As well as a story about trust, hope and opening your heart to others and to love. Not always an easy road to take.
An enjoyable start for this series . I am looking forward to the stories about the other two sisters, Alex and Haley.
I bought the book and was gifted the audiobook. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Steady and sweet

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was an ok ending would have liked to have seen more of their future

Did Roy Samuelson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I wasn't all the way happy with his female voices but it he did a good job

Could you see Loving Lauren being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No it was an ok read/listen but I do not see this as a movie not enough mystery

Any additional comments?

This was a cute sweet read it isn't one that you will remember for long it will not stay with you. There is nothing to set it off and keep in your mind. The author gives you great characters that you will like. I had a hard time believing some of it but it does go well with the story. I do not see this as every happening in real life.

Lauren loses her mother in a terrible way and years later as she turns 18 she loses her father. She must stand up and take over along with taking care of her sisters who are underage she must raise them, run the ranch and find away to keep it and her family together. Finding out her father owed money was a shock even more of a shock was the plan Chase put into play as he left town. Lauren is a very independent woman, as well as headstrong. With Chase returning she will have to decide a few things and their secrets must come out.

Chase has come home to stay he now wants to take up with Lauren where they left off. He must get her on the same page as he is. He does his best to show her how much he cares taking the money she saved to pay him back into fixing her place up. Which sets her off and leaves him doing some toe stepping to get his way.

Roy Samuelson did a good job of narration making you feel the emotions of the characters. I did not think his female voices were the greatest but you have no trouble knowing who was speaking and how they felt. There is no background noise and if he took a break you could not tell. I would listen to more audio's from this narrator, he isn't my favorite but worth your time to give a listen to.

The author takes you though the steps of these two overcoming their issues, she puts a little mystery into it but not enough for me to want to read again. I would like to know how the sister lives works out but not enough to buy either the book or the audio. It was a cute read that I enjoyed. I did chuckle a time or two but there was nothing that reached out and grabbed me throughout this read. Give the book a listen or read it and decide for yourself. I wasn't sorry I had read it just expected more from this author.
