A fun-loving troublemaker gives a workaholic Southern gal a real taste of Montana magic at the one and only Whisper Creek Ranch.
A rising star in the corporate world, Emma Winthrop enjoys the view from her cubicle in sunny Florida. But when she’s dispatched to a nursing home in Whisper Creek for three months of field experience, she discovers a slice of heaven made of mountains and mayhem—mostly in the form of rugged, drop-dead gorgeous Jasper Stone, who grinds his specialty beans at the town’s best coffee shop in between organizing dodge-ball games and wheelchair races in Emma’s hallways.
When Jasper walks in on this beautiful angel in silky purple underwear trying to rinse out her blouse, it’s a breathtaking view—even for a Montana native. Wreaking havoc here at Shady Acres keeps his dad in good spirits, but getting under Emma’s skin is proving to be even more fun. Jasper knows that he’s falling faster than a man with his past has any right to, but his body and his heart have a mind of their own. And Emma appears to be claiming both.

This is not a secret, I adored Maggie McGinnis’ Whisper Creek series. There is definitely something in this series that makes me feel like home every time. Once I finished Taking a Chance, I binged read the first two of the series.
Damn it was so good.
Workaholic owning a coffee shop, Jasper meets his my match by the lovely and full of life, Emma, the new interim director of his father’s nursing home. One first awkward encounter later and these two were already feeling something they haven’t felt in a long time. Ah Whisper Creek, the place where the lonely hearts find their home.
As the slow burn romance started and the main characters were both working through their issues and scars, the magic was happening, not with a little fight, but still it was such an amazing thing.
I’m gonna repeat myself, this the kind of book that I can read all over again. The characters are genuine, the storyline is keeping me captivated and the world created is just appealing, these stories about family, friendship that melt and warmed my heart.
Jasper and Emma, two lonely hearts who were afraid to open up to others but ended in this special place, in the middle of nowhere, where love is definitely not on the plan. Okay, the cowboy thing is sexy, but it wasn’t just like that. Sure it was portrayed like all the hotties were gathered all in the same place and that freaking calendar that I would love to see one day… I know a girl can dream….
But when it comes to Maggie McGinnis writing, I can’t resist, because she told stories about characters that could be seen very proper firsthand but it wasn’t, they weren’t like they seemed to be, just scratching the surface and getting to know them more.
I didn’t need something spectacular or show off, I wanted something that felt real, heartwarming. I loved how the author could write contemporary romance, with sincerity, simplicity but always with heart and I couldn’t not take a chance on that book.
