Cowboys & Debutantes (contemporary)
When bumbling veterinarian Jennifer Barsby’s friend Hazel falls ill, she doesn’t hesitate to take action. After quitting her job in Atlanta, she packs up her life and moves to the Cotton Tree ranch in South Georgia to take care of her sick former room-mate. But when circumstances change, she wonders what she should do with the rest of her life.
Handsome and brooding cowboy, Parker Williams, is just another pal — at least that’s how Jen sees him. A former Army Ranger, he’s found renewed purpose as part-owner of the ranch. But he’s given up on the idea of ever moving on or finding love. That is until Jen moves in.
She’s fun-loving, accident-prone, earnest and caring. But could she ever see him as anything more than a friend?

“Vivi Holt is a wonderful author, her stories are full of adventure, surprises, and clean tender love. I’ve never read a book by her that I didn’t love.
This one was so well written, a balance of tears, holding your breath and sighs. I love how she takes her readers on a journey one you can’t wait to turn the page to see what happens next and when you reach the end, you don’t want it to stop! Ed and Hattie’s story is perfect. It was fun having a front row seat to their relationship. A pure pleasure to read, I’d give it a 10 star if I could.” – Amazon reviewer
