Publisher's Summary

Can one summer together make up for eight years of separation?
Commander Brett Murphy left his family's construction firm in Oklahoma City for a life of hard work at Three Rivers Ranch. Alone, without a wife and kids, Brett needs the camaraderie he enjoyed while serving overseas with his Army buddies, Squire Ackerman and Peter Marshall.
What Brett doesn't need is the reappearance of his ex-wife. Fiery Kate Donnely has come to Three Rivers to confess to Brett that they're still married, and oh, he has a seven-year-old son she never told him about. At least not in letters she mailed.
Eight years ago, Kate left Oklahoma City only weeks after Brett's first deployment, shamed because of her bad choices and the unborn child of a man she'd already asked for a divorce. She needs him to sign the papers now or she can't have access to her hefty inheritance. But Brett absolutely does not want Kate to take his son away from him again.
They strike a deal: She'll stay at Three Rivers for the summer so Brett can have the opportunity to get to know his son. How far will they have to go and how much will they have to forgive in order to become a family?

Mixed feelings

There was a spot in the story where Brett went to Church and apparently the Pastor said something that gave Brett the resolve not to let Kate continue to avoid him. I just felt the Author missed an opportunity to share a nugget of wisdom by not telling what the Pastor said. Then later in the story when Brett and Kate have a disagreement about moving and Brett tells her that he needs to go think for a while; just because Brett doesn't come back as soon as she thinks he should she leaves him a note saying she's moving to North Carolina. I just thought that was very juvenile.

With that being said, I liked the plot of this book and Reid was a cute exuberant addition to the story.
