I’ve read all of Kimberly Krey’s Sweet Montana Brides collection, but hadn’t read any of her Cobble Creek Romances. The Sheriff’s Bride was a sweet small town romance.
“Trent Lockheart might be the new sheriff in town, but he can’t stop Jessie Jean from stealing his heart.
Sheriff Trent Lockheart knew he’d be in for a challenge when he moved from the big city and a large police force to the small Wyoming town of Cobble Creek. But at least he’d be able to stick to his bachelor ways without temptation. So he thought. Cobble Creek isn’t overflowing with young, single ladies, but Jessie Jean—the gorgeous brunette who runs the Country Quilt Inn—proves more tempting than any woman he’s known.
Jessie doesn’t care much for the new sheriff in town. After an explosive first meeting that almost ends in Jessie’s arrest, she’s even more determined to plan on dinner for one for the rest of her life. Sure, the new sheriff is seriously attractive, and after a second, much less dangerous run-in, he might not be that bad, but Jessie has no plan to marry, date, or even let a man into her life. Still, as the days pass, Trent’s surprising charm works past Jessie’s determination, and she finds promise in their budding relationship.
After opening up about the difficulties in her past, Jessie finds that Trent is guarding a dark tragedy of his own, one that might threaten their chance at a future together.”
Kimberly Krey having her characters realize they had to be “willing to work at things to get what you want” showed a true understanding of romance. The fact that they had to fight to overcome their backgrounds and fight for each other made their relationship more real and relateable.
My one struggle was that Jessie’s realization of wanting to fight for Trent seemed to be a turning point, but then she gave up too quickly. I think it would’ve fit more with the moment and her personality for her to demand he talk and not leave until he acquiesced. Other than that it was a sweet quick read.
