On Tour with Prism Book Tours
At a magical time of year…
Can a cowboy help falling in love?
For single dad Owen Caufield, living and working at Sweetheart Ranch for a month is the perfect change of pace. While the cowboy turned wedding officiant can now spend more time with his children, Molly O’Malley, his new boss, is less thrilled. A wedding ranch isn’t the best place for three rambunctious youngsters. But amid the chaos—and the coming holidays—it may be the best place to fall in love…
Molly immediately brightened. “Nora! Please tell me you’re here to rescue us.”
“What else would get me out of bed at this ungodly hour?”
Was eight forty-five an ungodly hour? Owen wondered. Apparently for Nora it was.
“I assume this is Homer’s great-nephew.” Removing her coat, she gave him careful consideration. “He didn’t mention you were easy on the eyes.”
Owen grinned. “He didn’t mention you were, either.”
Her dour countenance magically transformed into a delighted grin. “And charming to boot. I do believe this next month is going to be quite enjoyable.”
“For me, too.”
She twittered. Owen didn’t think he’d heard a woman twitter since he first met his former mother-in-law.
“Are you a witch?” Cody glowered at her. “I don’t like witches.”
Owen was tempted to cover his son’s mouth before the boy embarrassed him further. “Sorry about that.”
“No worries. Your children are adorable. Emily asked me to watch them while you’re busy marrying folks. Got a half-dozen of my own grandkids, so I’m plenty experienced.”
Owen thought her assessment of his kids was much too kind. “I’d be very grateful and will compensate you.”
“Emily’s paying my salary. Said childcare was part of her arrangement with you.”
It was, but Owen didn’t want to take advantage.
“Did Grandma tell you she was eloping?” Molly asked Nora.
“I’m her best friend. She called me last night.”
Molly scowled. “She left us a note.”
“Don’t go getting bent out of shape. She didn’t tell you because you’d have tried to talk her out of it.”
“I absolutely would have.”
“See?” Nora moved her suitcase-sized purse to her other arm. I’m also supposed to take over guest relations for you.”
“What?” Molly drew back. “No!”
Nora shrugged. “Suit yourself. But it’s either that or wedding coordinator, and I’m thinking you’ll be a whole lot better at coordinating weddings than me, considering you have experience planning two of your own.”
Molly ignored the comment and faced Owen. “I’ll fetch the cabin key and meet you there. Number six. Drive around back. Farthest one on the left.” With that, she left.
Owen watched her retreating back. Molly had been married twice?
“Touched a nerve, apparently,” Nora said, erupting in laughter.
