Come along, reader friends! It’s time to take a literary journey to the fictional town of Sweet Dreams, Wyoming courtesy of Jill Kermerer and in celebration of new release Reunited with the Bull Rider. Plus, there are two giveaways!
Sweet Dreams, Wyoming
Ahh, Sweet Dreams, Wyoming. How I would love to visit this town! Sweet Dreams is a fictional town in the Bighorn Basin region of Wyoming. Picture wide open spaces, white-capped mountains, creeks, prairies and an adorable downtown.
Like any small town, Sweet Dreams has its go-to gathering spots, quirky residents and a beauty all its own.
five favorite things about Sweet Dreams
Jill: Dottie’s Diner is where everyone hangs out. Dottie Lavert and her husband Big Bob were like surrogate parents to the heroes of my Wyoming Cowboys series.
Dottie is a sweet woman with a big heart and comes up with unique nicknames for everyone. The diner features red vinyl seats, a long counter, plenty of booths for the breakfast crowd and large platters of good, home-cooked meals.
Beth: I’d love to visit a place like that!
The former Yearling Group Home for teen boys
Jill: Yearling was a group foster home outside of Sweet Dreams. It was run by Dottie and Big Bob when the heroes met as teens. It shut down due to lack of funding years ago.
Clint, Nash, Marshall and Wade are now as close as brothers and all live near Sweet Dreams. If it wasn’t for Dottie’s and Big Bob’s guidance, they would have turned out much differently.
Beth: I am LOVING Dottie and Big Bob!
Jill: Jerry is the right-hand man at Rock Step Ranch in the first book of the series, The Rancher’s Mistletoe Bride. He’s a thin, wiry old cowboy, and he’s constantly comparing people and situations to the wild animals of Wyoming. No one really knows what he means, but now and then he comes up with an analogy that works.
Beth: A wise old cowpoke, too?! This town has it all!
The white-steepled church
Jill: This is the church everyone goes to on Sundays. Is there more than one church in Sweet Dreams? Undoubtedly. Does this church have a name? I’m sure it does. But it’s just “the church” in my books!
Beth: Well, if everyone is going, seems like that’s the important part!
Jill: What’s a great small town without a coffee shop? The Beanery is everyone’s go-to place for a yummy cup of joe, whipped-cream-topped cocoa, donuts, and more.
Beth: A sweet little coffee & ice cream shop just opened in my hometown! I think all the old guys still get their coffee and shoot the breeze at the gas-station-slash-convenience store, old habits and all that.
And one bonus item…
The Department Store
Jill: The Department Store features prominently in all four books, and I won’t spoil it and tell you why! Take my word for it, the Department Store is not what it seems.
Beth: Now you’ve really hooked me, Jill!
about the book
Goodbye rodeo, hello hometown. But is this Wyoming Cowboy ready to face his past?
Amy Deerson wanted to mentor a child. Her plan did not include former bull rider Nash Bolton—the little girl’s brother and guardian. It’s been a decade since Nash left town without a word, breaking Amy’s young heart. Now they must put their painful past aside to help fragile, traumatized Ruby. If only getting over their first love were that simple.

I’d love to go to Maine.
Looking forward to this book by Jill.

Hi! I would go to Texas to see the cowboys and bull riders.
I keep seeing this book and the more I do, the more I want to read it!
Any place in the US, huh? Well, my top three right now (because I haven’t been yet) are very different, but all would be interesting: NYC, Boston, or Savannah, GA. That last one is semi close to me so I may just have to make it into a mini-vacation soon!
Linda: I would love to go to Texas!! I have a few good friends there and I’d love to see them!
Suzie: I would LOVE to go to all three of the places you listed! Hope you can get to them!
Romance, Cowboys, and a Tin of Toffee candy, count me in.
Thanks for entering me in your giveaway.
I would love to take a train trip. No special destination and you have a room to sleep in, food you don’t have to cook, and someone else to do the driving.
I’d go to Delaware to visit my son & grandbabies!
I loved this story. I still need to write my review.
I love the Tetons-Yellowstone area. It’s a fave place to go. I’d like to go to New England. There’s so much history there.
Hi Jill and Beth! If I could go anywhere in the US I think I’d go to San Diego or Hawaii or Alaska……or somewhere else i haven’t been. 🙂
