"Nick Noble hadn't planned on being the prodigal son. But when his father dies and leaves half the Silver Buckle - the Noble family ranch - to Nick's former best friend, he returns home to face his mistakes . . . and to guarantee that the ranch stays in the Noble family.
Award-winning journalist Piper Sullivan believes Nick framed her brother for murder, and she's determined to find justice. But following Nick to the Silver Buckle and posing as a ranch cook proves more challenging than she thinks. So does resisting his charming smile.
As Nick seeks to overturn his father's will - and Piper digs for answers - family secrets will surface that send Nick's life into a tailspin. But there's someone else who wants to take the Silver Buckle from the Noble family, and he'll stop at nothing - even murder - to make it happen."
Nick's life hasn't exactly taken form the way he wished. Then he finds out his father has died, and left half the family ranch to a family friend-turned-enemy!! Nick returns home to contest the will and keep what he believes is rightfully his.
Piper's brother has spent the last 5 years in jail, framed for murder. She is convinced it is all Nick's doing, and sets out to get a confession from him.
Cole's health is going down-hill fast, leaving Maggy and CJ to run the ranch. When Nick returns, it brings a whole new set of problems. Especially concerning Nick and Cole's son CJ. Should they be told?
This is my first book by Susan May Warren. While I enjoyed it, it was not one of my favorites. I liked the added mystery; watching Piper try to cook; and the way every one forgave each other and gave of themselves (literally) to help the other. I couldn't really say what I didn't like, it just didn't click with me.
