Twelve years ago, equestrian Olympic hopeful Olivia Canaday and her best friend, Jake Lassen, made a pinky-swear promise to reunite at the Big Marietta Fair on her thirtieth birthday and marry each other if they were both still single. But that was before they grew up and went their separate ways. 

Now, after a disastrous divorce and a career-changing accident, Olivia limps home, minus her mojo, her courage and her faith in love. She retreats to her parents’ ranch, determined to play it safe, but when ex-Army helicopter pilot Jake Lassen arrives to make good on their promise, he reignites passion and hope, two things Olivia had forgotten existed. 

Olivia resolves to keep Jake at arm’s length, even though the memory of his kisses keeps her up at night. She knows better than to let her heart get involved, but Jake is planning for the future. Their future. Can Jake convince her to risk it all one more time and really make this a fair to remember?

    Loved it! It always tears me up when after finding each other, a couple goes through some crap before they finally get together but the way this story went along, I was glad to see they didn't have to go through too much before they find their way.

    Another hit in the Montana Fair books, a stand alone read. Loved the story of Olivia and Jake. High school best friends, who made a pinky swear that if they were single on Olivia's thirtieth birthday that they would meet back up in Marietta. They both had tragedy in their pasts that need to heal. This book will bring out all of your emotions. I love going back to Marietta to catch up with everyone, a true county fair feeling.
