As she and others celebrate New Year’s Eve in Horseback Hollow, Texas, Stacy Fortune Jones feels blessed with her six-month old daughter Piper. She appreciates her family showering her baby with love though there is a spat between her resentful brother Chris and their mom Jeanne due to the latter refusing to accept any money from her sibling James. Stacey has mixed feelings about her ex-fiancé Joe who dumped her (to her relief) when she told him she was carrying his child as the rat makes no time for his offspring (to her chagrin).

Lately Stacy finds herself distracted by thoughts of her friend’s older brother Colton Foster. Noticing how mature Stacy has become since becoming a single mom, Colton is attracted to her too. However Colton also remains reluctant to pursue his neighbor as he fears the impact on their close friendly family relationships and besides has doubts about raising a child at this time especially since Piper scares him more than a charging bull.

This Fortunes of Texas: Welcome to Horseback Hollow contemporary is an engaging ranch family drama. While there is some family feuding, the romance between the longtime friends is straightforward and sweet with the baby serving as an endearing chaperone.
