Molly arrives in Sutter’s Hollow out of gas and out of options. The rundown ranch seems like a perfect place to hide. Except for the man who owns it seems just as dangerous as what’s chasing her.
Cord’s mantra growing up? Get out of Sutter’s Hollow. Now he’s back in town, but only long enough to get rid of his grandma’s ball and chain—the ranch. He doesn’t need a complication like Molly, who reminds him of an injured baby bird. He’s no protector. So why can’t he tell her to get lost?

His Small-Town Girl begins the Sutter’s Hollow series with an emotional romance between two people who are emotionally and physically running from the past yet are finding their future, together, in the most unlikely place.
Cord vowed to never set foot in Sutter’s Hollow once he’d escaped, yet here he is back settling his mean-hearted grandmother’s estate or what’s left of the dilapidated, rundown ranch. The last thing he needed to deal with was a wounded, scared woman almost demanding a job, a refuge, and help to get this ranch back in shape. But maybe meeting Molly will turn out to be the best thing this ranch ever brought him after all.
Molly is on the run from a dangerous past. She’s found the perfect place to hide, pull herself together, and figure out what to do next. She knows Cord doesn’t really want her around but this ranch draws her – not to mention its owner. She might be scared out of her mind, but she’s also stubborn as she sets out to carve a new future with a most unlikely hero.
His Small-Town Girl is the type of story that draws me in immediately. Both Cord and Molly are wounded deep and each needs healing in so many ways. As they work on the ranch and face the danger following Molly they also start to let go of their pasts and begin the journey of falling in love with all the risks involved.
I really don’t want to spoil this story for anyone by giving too many details – but it probably says something when I tell you that the author had gifted me a copy for review and I waited until release day to purchase it before publishing that review post. So, yeah, His Small-Town Girl captured my heart, kept me on the edge of my seat worrying about this couple, and completely enjoying this small-town community. I’d definitely recommend this story and the coming series – if you love a good, strong, clean romance then I don’t think you’ll be one bit disappointed in this start to what looks like a really good, emotional series. I’ve already got the release date for Secondhand Cowboy on my Google calendar so I won’t forget. *shrugs while grinning – life gets hectic so I keep reminders*
I own a Kindle copy of this title (which the author had also gifted before publication for review).
