Whitney Leigh seems determined to uncover the mystery of the town's recent windfall, and Josh could help her. But that would mean opening up his guarded heart.

What surprises Julie is the personal "fireworks" she notices when one particular rodeo cowboy catches her eye. She and Ryan Travers are nothing alike, and yet... Since her father has been trying to get all his adult children married off, Julie wonders if Ryan would be willing to pretend to be her date just to relieve the pressure of her dad's match-making efforts.
