The day his wife died, Sheriff Cash Hill discovered she was leaving him for another man, one she’d loved since before their marriage. How could the single dad ever trust another woman again? But when Georgia’s best friend, Holly, comes back to town, something about Holly’s sweet, sassy vulnerability has his protective instincts kicking in hard.
Holly Jensen left La Colina, Texas with regrets. She’s returned home to work as the new large animal vet and to watch over her best friend’s daughter. But Holly’s knowledge of Georgia’s past could rip a family apart. And she’s reluctant to go to the sexy…and single…sheriff, as he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with her.
Both are faced with a choice…stay locked in the past or allow their reservations to be silenced by a passion hotter than Texas summer nights. Can they learn to trust their own hearts and each other?

Title: Saving the Sheriff
Series: The Hills of Texas #1
Author: Kadie Scott
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: January 23, 2018
Publisher: Tule Publishing
My Rating: 4 stars
There are times in life when we are so focused and caught up in the past that we cannot see beyond to a future without unnecessary complications brought about by that same past. Cash will not let go of the past, and by doing that so stubbornly he’s forfeiting his future. Holly left town with good reason, and she’s returned to not only look after her deceased friend’s daughter but to bring the truth to people who need to hear it. The trouble with being the truth bearer is that it often paints you as the enemy when in fact the opposite is true.
I enjoyed Saving the Sheriff, it shows how often we simply fall into a pattern, holding tight to the past when we need to let go and move on. That’s not always easy to do, but it’s necessary for every person at some point in their lives. Holly and Cash were right for each other they simply (or maybe not so simple) needed to get past what was and head into what could be. Look for one little sweetheart of a daughter to steal lots of scenes.
There is some light world building, as I would expect from the first of a series but it was far from overwhelming. I’d recommend Saving the Sheriff to any Romance reader who enjoys complex issues, a good story and people you’ll like and relate to.
