This was a delightful read. I loved the ending of the book and part of the ending was such a heartwarming surprise. I found myself laughing and crying and fell in love with the ladies at Sage Willow's boarding house.
Sage has finally raised and seen her siblings married and she now finds herself running a boarding house with 4 widows living there. They are such characters you will learn to love them all for very different reasons. Sage has resigned herself that she will never marry (partly because there are no available prospects in their town), but one of the widow ladies has an idea. Her nephew, Reb Mitchell shows up on the scene to bring cattle onto Aunt Eugenia's ranch and run the place for her. Reb is a little leary of giving his heart to another woman, since he had a relationship go bad on him. But he doesn't mind having fun and flirtin' with the ladies. He has a way with the 4 widows that is downright endearing and Sage finds herself falling for him, even though she knows he isn't really interested in her, just having some fun. But Reb can't seem to get her off of his mind; and the "touch of Sage" just does something to him. This was a fun, very romantic story. What these ladies do to finally get Sage and Reb together is so funny and what Reb does for Sage at the end will convince you of his love for her. This was just an all around feel good story.
