About the Book:
Orphaned at age ten, Ellie Stafford and her twin sister Mae made a vow—to stick together and never marry. Now in their mid-twenties, they are bucking convention in Calder Springs, Texas, as women with respectable occupations who can take care of themselves. Ellie works at the Good Fixin's Diner and spends her evenings knitting garments for The Children's Aid Society. When a handsome local rancher shows up searching for a cook, she's hardly tempted, despite his good looks. Luke Rogers owns a spread just outside of Calder Springs. It was running as smooth as cattle going through a chute until his cook up and marries and high-tails it back east. With no cook and a bunkhouse full of ranch hands ready to revolt, he persuades Ellie to temporarily fill in until he can hire someone else. He should have known better than to get tangled up with another woman.
Hearts Tightly Knit by Jodie Wolfe is a sweet and satisfying romance read. Ellie and her sister, Mae, are twins who have vowed not to marry, but to always stay together. Ellie is content working at the local diner and knitting in her spare time, so when handsome cowboy, Luke Rogers, comes along looking for a cook to appease his ranch hands, Ellie isn’t interested. But Luke isn’t willing to give up too easily.
What starts out as an agreement, to help Luke out with the evening meal, promises to be more than two stubborn people bargained for. Ellie is faced with a decision she never thought she’d have to make.
