When Sawyer O'Donnell takes a ranch job on a whim, he lands smack dab in the middle of a Texas-sized feud! The Gallaghers and the Brennans are at each other's throats to woo the red-headed spitfire, Jill Cleary, and stake a claim for the Fiddle Creek Ranch. 

Jill makes Sawyer's blood boil. They argue, they banter, but Sawyer soon goes from being driven crazy to crazy in love. Damned if he knows how that happened. But now that it has, how does he compete with two men that can give this cowgirl a lifestyle beyond her wildest dreams?

     This is a modern day Hatfield’s and McCoy’s story that involves the Gallagher’s and the Brennan’s.  Smack dab in the middle of their two properties with water rights wanted is Gladys Cleary.  A woman no body messes with.  You see her and her sister-in-law by marriage about in their 80’s but they have a lot of juice in Burnt Boot, Texas.
     Polly Cleary owns “Polly’s Bar & Grill” and Gladys owns the only general store in town.  So, no one wants to piss them off so their places have remained neutral along with the church grounds.  The other 80 year old packing mama is Verdie part of the O’Donnell clan.
     Needing help around her farm Gladys hires Sawyer O’Donnell kin to Verdie.  Her son Fin was real close with Sawyer.  They recommended him for the job.  The thing is the night before he’s starting work Gladys’ gets a call from her only living heir and the apple of her and Polly’s eye Jill Cleary the only true Cleary blood left.  That she was coming home to be with her and would take the old bunkhouse no problem.  Gladys said okay.  She so missed her and wanted to see her and she needed to learn how to run the ranch and store.  Yet, with Jill’s temper as large as her own, Gladys didn’t tell her about her new foreman that she would be sharing that house with.
     So, as Sawyer was cleaning the bunkhouse on his first day Jill arrives several hours earlier than Gladys was expecting.  Jill surprises Sawyer by holding him by shotgun until Aunt Gladys arrives to talk her down and get it all squared away.  Neither really likes it at all at first but no sooner does Gladys leave when the first suitor arrive for Jill and then the female cousin for Sawyer.  The two fighting clans figure they take out the competition of Sawyer or get him on one of their teams they would win over Jill and get her to marry one of the guys from one of the feuding families.  But by the time all four came to the door Sawyer and Jill joined forces never to be alone and never to allow the other to accept an invite from either camp.
     What was funny is that news in this town traveled faster than lightening.  The triangle of the three 80 year olds was a trip.  They had major juju!  The whole story was just so fun and funny.  It was just a pleasure to read.  I give it 5 stars.
