Difficult to believe this was published by Harlequin. The primary characters are dull, you spend most of the book in their heads while they wish they could do something, but then don't. I am not certain that the author has spent much time in the back country of Wyoming. My experiences there found that cell phones worked infrequently. But the characters in the book never have any issues trying to get a signal. The author's vocabulary is limited. We are in the west and in a love scene devoid of passion she describes clothing as 'pants' instead of 'jeans' or 'Levis'. Lastly, the author repeats the same concepts over and over again. I am probably being too generous giving this three stars.
