I found myself compelled to read later and later into the evenings because I was absolutely invested in the troubles plaguing Three River Ranch. To say it is a romance is true, surely, but it is not predictable or one-dimensional. Three River Ranch is also about breeding and training service animals and about the ecology of wild herds of mustangs. Somehow I know and care more about those topics than I did before, even though I was completely engrossed in the main plot. The best part of Snopek's novel, in my opinion, is her characters--Carson and Rory, the main love interests, are complex and infuriatingly lifelike, and the twins Bliss and Blythe (or "Blister" and "Blight") are brilliant! Nobody does what you'd expect them to and they are as capable of surprising themselves as they are of surprising the reader.
I call it a little gem of a story. And because I've enjoyed this one so much, I'll be watching for more in the series. I understand there will be sequels.
