The Sage After Rain

Taya Kaye is trying to live the life that her parents would have her live. She's engaged to be married to a congressman, but he and her parents have no respect for her values. Taya has no desire to wear clothes that she feels are immodest and when both her fiance and her parents insist that she wear a sleeveless dress to an event and she refuses, her fiance hits her doing a great deal of damage to her hand. Taya knows that she must get out of Washington and find somewhere she can be herself, so she heads out west to the high desert of Colorado. She's hoping that she won't be found, so she takes a job as a sheepherder in a remote location. The sheep, a dog, a horse, and a trailer to live in are all that she needs to have a happy, quiet and peaceful life as she waits to testify at the trial of her former fiance. Taya is a bit leery of men at this point, but then she meets Matt, a genuinely nice guy who has had a few setbacks. He offers to live near her and give her a bit of protection, should she trust this handsome man that she's barely met?

This was a cute story. I liked Taya and the way she was willing to give up her high society life for something so simple and that really required her to work hard. I thought that it showed a lot of strength on her part that she went to a place where she knew that she was going to be living all on her own. I also really liked Matt, how he wasn't in a great situation, recognized that fact and worked to change his situation. The story was cute and I liked the ending. Can't wait to read another of Jaclyn M Hawkes' books, I've loved all of them!
