7_9 Cover - The Sweet SpotCharla Rae Denny was the perfect wife with a perfect life, content to keep the home fires burning while her husband, JB, competed as a champion bull rider. Then their son died in a tragic accident-and everything fell apart. Divorced and saddled with a hill of bills and a failing ranch, Charla must now cowboy up to put her life back together.

James “JB” Denny doesn’t stay where he isn’t welcome. So when Charla shut him out of her grieving heart-and their home-a year ago, he took comfort where he could find it. Now after seeing beautiful Charla again, he wants it all back. She can’t work the ranch alone, and deep in his heart he knows he can be the man she needs. But after so much history and heartbreak, can JB convince Charla to take a risk and give their love a second chance?

  1. Hi, Laura — I have everything on your list — except the “AlarmCat.” Those labels have been associated with me by my sister (although, not hurtful because I don’t pay attention to her). I just can’t help it — there’s always a book I want to read someday, and important events/experiences that I’ve written in copybooks (and my laptop doesn’t have enough memory). I never know when I’ll need that experience. I loved your post. Thanks.
