A Cowboy for the Twins by Carolyne Aarsen

Shauntelle Dexter’s twin girls think they’ve found their perfect new dad in cowboy Noah Cosgrove. But how could she ever be interested in the man her family believes responsible for her brother’s death? Besides, while she’s putting down roots in Cedar Ridge, the big-city contractor will soon be hitting the highway straight out of town—until he’s roped into building Shauntelle’s dream restaurant. Working beside her reopens old wounds Noah would rather forget. But he doesn’t know real trouble until his mother and the twins join forces. One wily matchmaker, two precocious little girls and one beautiful woman may be more than a reluctant cowboy can resist.

Heidi here. A Cowboy for the Twins had great conflict as the heroine held the hero at fault for her brother's death. The neat thing was that once the romance started, Shauntelle began having conflict with her parents, whom she lived with. Her parents seemed to be more upset with Noah about her brother's death than she was.

I adored the girls, they were as opposite as can be, and they played a large part in the way of throwing conflict in the way of their mother. Also, this town had a Saturday farmer's market, which felt so cozy and small-townish to me, it was a nice touch. 

This was my first Carolyne Aarsen novel, and won't be my last! She made the characters come alive, the emotions moved the story forward, and the stakes were high (Shauntelle had to work with the man responsible for her brother's death AND her dream restaurant seemed at risk for opening).

Grab your copy of A Cowboy for the Twins when it releases on February 1st!
