Publisher's Summary

Waitress and single mother Louise Olson wouldn’t have missed church to stay home with her sick daughter if she knew the congregation was going to volunteer her to head up the town’s Harvest Festival. 

Truth be told, she didn’t mind and would have enjoyed it. The problem was Sweet Water’s superstar hockey golden boy was back in town, and he had been named her co-chair. That even wouldn’t be a problem except he didn’t know he was a father - of her daughter. 

Hockey forward Ty Hanson grew up on a ranch in Sweet Water, North Dakota, but once he left for college, he never went home. He wouldn’t be there now except for the off-season injury his agent wanted kept secret so it didn’t affect his marketability, so he was to hang out in Sweet Water, North Dakota, until the season started. 

His first Sunday back in the church of his childhood, he gets selected as a volunteer to co-chair the Harvest Fest committee with the girl he could never forget.

When Ty and Louise are forced to work together, Louise is compelled to tell Ty the secret she’s kept from everyone. The attraction between them still burns strong, but Louise was on the verge of getting married, and years of neglect and betrayal lie between her and her accidental summer fling. 

Will Ty pick up his cowboy hat and come back home? Can he convince Louise that he’ll stay this time?

Sweet Cowboy Romance

Sweet second chance romance. Beautifully crafted story includes secrets, misconceptions, gossip and the courage it takes to persevere and make amends. You can’t help but root for the handsome Hockey player and the single mom. Jay Dyess is excellent at narration and uses voice inflection and different tones to keep the reader engaged.

Louise never told her secret.

One night 9 years ago was the best of times and the worst of times. And then he left and never came back or called. She was left pregnant trying to finish high school and he went on to the NHL and was a star and her daughter was his biggest fan. Then he came back and saw Louise and lost his heart all over again, but he has to earn her trust and that doesn’t come easily.
Jessie always tells a great story and Jay makes it live with his great narration. For a clean romance, with some humor and country wisdom thrown in you can’t miss with this duo.

Couldn’t stop listening!

This book had the most physical romance (still very clean) of any I’ve heard Dyess read. I was very impressed at how it came across. As always, an audio that caused me to continue to listen (even though I read it earlier this year) rather switch to reading a new book.

Story:

This book really was incredible. It was better than I could’ve imagined. A wonderful second chance, surprise child romance. I absolutely loved these characters and getting to know more of Sweet Water. I’m super pumped for Ford’s story and eagerly anticipating Georgia’s!

Great storyline

When Ty came back to town after a hockey injury, he quickly volunteered at church to help with the town's Christmas festival, except the woman in charge of the festival was absent the day the town's people voted her in to do the job. She had stayed at home with her sick daughter that day....

Jay Dyess does a wonderful job of reading this book and doing different voices in the narration. Jessie Gussman does a wonderful job of writing these books too!

Awesome book

Ty and Louise were best friends and secretly they started seeing each other down by the river. Ty left to go to college and to become a major hockey star. He had a fight with his father that night. But later that night his father had a heart attack and passed away. Ty didn't come home for over 9 years. Then he came home to see his mother. He ran into Louise and while he was at home for a month he found out that he was a dad.

Louise had been pregnant the last time she had seen Ty for his father's funeral but she hadn't known that. She found out later. But she didn't tell him or anyone because she wanted him to get his college education and become the hockey star that he had.

Now can she trust him again and can they become more than friends. Check out the book I just couldn't put it down.

Another winner

I really enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator did an excellent job with clear reading and voice inflections. The author did an excellent job writing likable characters and a great story line. The only down side is some of the language used in the book, ie frig, crap, darn - not cussing, but offensive to some people, All in all, a good book and the series is worth your time to read,

Second Chances!

For the last eight years and 40 weeks, Louise carried around a secret, the identity of the father of the daughter she gave birth to on the night of her high school graduation. So what if she never went on a single date and missed her valedictorian speech. That was her life.
Ty comes back to town for his best friend’s wedding. He receives a hero’s welcome, because of his status as a hockey star, from everyone, except Louise. She was the smartest girl that he ever knew, and she is still in their hometown, working as a waitress.
Ty has a lot to answer for and a lot of questions of his own.
This was truly a great read first and now listen. Mr. Dyess always does such an excellent job of giving voice to the characters.

Twist On A Second Chance!

This Second Chance at love is full of surprises for Ty and Louise. Ty is a Hometown Hockey hero mending an injury. Even after almost 9 years he finds Louise still has his heart and an 8 year old daughter! A daughter no one knows who the father is. Little Telly will steal your heart and so will this story! I was gifted this Audiobook and chose to leave a review. I highly recommend this book, it's author and Jay Dyess as it's narrator. This can be read as a standalone but I recommend the series as well!

As always Jay Dyess has done an excellent job of bringing these characters to life

Louise Olsen,the pianist who is also volunteered to head up the town's Harvest festival,at first doesn't mind, until she finds out who her co chair is.
Ty Hanson. The man who left her behind when he went off to college. The man who fathered her child.
I don't want to give spoilers for this story, I want to give listeners the chance to immerse themselves in a beautifully written expertly narrated story.
