Over the Moon at the Big Lizard Diner by Lisa Wingate
Welcome to the big Lizard Bottoms, home of the famed Lover's Oak, where matrimony is a local industry, where you can get hitched, book a float trip down the river, or both. Not exactly an ideal vacation destination for a play-it-safe paleontologist who hs sworn off romance. But Lindsey Attwood isn't on vacation. She's here on a covert mission to help recover dinosaur tracks stolen from a local guest ranch. If she has to pose as a horse psychology patient and make nice with the local rancher to do it, she can handle that, can't she?
Or maybe not. After she spends only a day at the ranch, things are spiraling out of control. Her horse therapy horse hates her, she's been adopted by an enormous stray sheepdog with an outlaw reputation, and the rancher... well, that situation is out of bounds that Lindsey's head is in a whirl and she's feeling all moonstruck. Which, come to think of it, may be exactly what she needs. After years of drifting around in the past, Lindsey wonders if it's finally time to see what the present has to offer.
