A fun-loving troublemaker gives a workaholic Southern gal a real taste of Montana magic at the one and only Whisper Creek Ranch.
“Maggie McGinnis just keeps getting better and better!”—Lauren Layne
A rising star in the corporate world, Emma Winthrop enjoys the view from her cubicle in sunny Florida. But when she’s dispatched to a nursing home in Whisper Creek for three months of field experience, she discovers a slice of heaven made of mountains and mayhem—mostly in the form of rugged, drop-dead gorgeous Jasper Stone, who grinds his specialty beans at the town’s best coffee shop in between organizing dodge-ball games and wheelchair races in Emma’s hallways.
When Jasper walks in on this beautiful angel in silky purple underwear trying to rinse out her blouse, it’s a breathtaking view—even for a Montana native. Wreaking havoc here at Shady Acres keeps his dad in good spirits, but getting under Emma’s skin is proving to be even more fun. Jasper knows that he’s falling faster than a man with his past has any right to, but his body and his heart have a mind of their own. And Emma appears to be claiming both.

It never fails! Every time I pick up a Maggie McGinnis book planning on reading a couple hours I get so consumed by the story that by the time I look up it's late into the night and I just have to finish the book! That's exactly what happened with this incredible book. Jasper and Emma's story is simply wonderful. Jasper is funny, loving, kind and oh so sexy. Then there's Emma. A little stiff, a bit driven, but with a heart as big as Montana. Not only are these main characters completely entertaining but the secondary characters are as well. When Emma was unexpectedly sent from her cushy corporate office to work in this facility in Montana she never expected to fall in love with the people, the place, or the man but fall she did. How can she ever go back to her boring life now??
You don't want to miss this one! I highly recommend it.
Taking A Chance is a delightful love story that takes place, in Carefree, Montana, five miles outside the magical waters of Whisper Creek.
Emma Winthrop has been trying to impress her parents, for forever. She’s been climbing the corporate ladder at Galway Health for ten years. When she was called into the office, Emma was sure it was for a promotion, but instead of getting a new office, she was handed a temporary nursing home assignment in Montana. Emma had a masters degree in Health Administration but knew very little, about the day to day, decisions of running a nursing home. She was hoping that her inexperience wouldn’t be blatantly obvious to the staff. It was. Emma would discover, though, that keeping her heart from breaking was much more difficult, than being a nursing home administrator.
Jasper Stone owned a coffee shop, in downtown Carefree Montana. He was also the go-to-person for anyone who needed help; such as, caring for kittens, or cooking a meal at Shady Acres nursing home. Jasper believed that he had a lot to atone for, especially in the romance dept. He never wanted to destroy a woman’s life again. So when Emma Winthrop walked into his life and stole his heart, Jasper was beside-himself. He wanted Emma desperately but knew that he could never have her.
Jasper and Emma, both carried unresolved guilt, and couldn’t enjoy life to the fullest, because of it. Self-forgiveness is many times much harder than forgiving another person. Whisper Creek, however, is a magical place of healing. Some say the magic is in the air and the mountains, others say it’s the friendliness of the staff and horseback riding. But the people from Whisper Creek will tell you that the secret is in the water. I loved both of these characters. It was heartwarming to watch Jasper and Emma, grow and blossom. Maybe, Whisper Creek truly is an enchanted place for healing the soul.
Taking A Chance is a touching story. It’s a light, wholesome heartfelt romance. Thank you, Random House Publishing- Loveswept and NetGalley, for my advance review copy.
OMG!! I love Whisper Creek and all its residents! Jasper and Emma's story did not disappoint and is so much FUN! I was LOLing from the first line. Jasper and Emma's story is heartfelt with a little touch of sadness at times BUT mostly fun! Emma is a strong woman that just needs someone to believe in her and she finds that someone in Jasper. A great romance not to be missed!!
