Review: The Talk Around Town (With Love, From Kurrajong Crossing, #2) by Dakota Harrison

Moving to this small town might just be a huge mistake.

City girl Emma Johnson moves to Kurrajong Crossing determined to escape her troubled past and forge a bright future filled with new friendships, experiences, and even a pet cow. When the town starts a bet to see which of the many eligible bachelors around town will take her out first, she plays along. They’ll figure out soon enough that she isn’t interested in romance or relationships. Not now, not ever.

Country vet and cattleman Gabe Jameson knows the gossip surrounding pretty newcomer Emma will taper off eventually. In the meantime, he’s willing to lend a hand and help with emergency repairs to her rickety old house. It’s not as if it’s a date, or that he wants it to turn into something more. Pretty women are trouble, and Emma is stunning. Besides, he’s sworn off love forever.

It seems they might have something in common after all…


My Review:

Heartfelt and emotional

All Emma wanted to do was restart her life where no one knew her.  The last thing she wanted was to date again.  She didn’t want or need a man in her life.  Men caused emotions that Emma wasn’t sure she ever wanted to deal with again.   

Gabe is a beloved veterinarian in the small town of Kurrajong Crossing, where Emma has decided to relocate.  Gabe also has a painful past that keeps him from dating.  But when Gabe meets Emma, he can’t seem to get her out of his mind.  When Emma and Gabe finally decide to date, the odds seem to be against them.  But with a little trust and patience, they find happiness again.

This is a sweet story about starting over and learning to trust in love again.  Gabe and Emma’s stories deeply touched me.  With the situations they went through, I can see why they were afraid to fall in love again.  I enjoyed the family and friendship aspects in the story along with a cute little calf that seemed to steal a few scenes and make me laugh.
