An Unfinished Life by Mark Spragg

How I have never read any Mark Spragg books until now is a mystery to me.  Thanks Luci for this recommendation.  From when I first started listening to this book I was immediately drawn in.  An old rancher reluctantly takes in his daughter-in-law and granddaughter in this light 'formula' but enjoyable novel .

Jean hasn't been back to her hometown in Wyoming, since her husband, Griffin, died in a car accident. Jean was driving, and Griffin's father, Einar, has never forgiven her for his son's death. Ten years and four boyfriends later, Jean has run out of money and options. With her precocious nine-year-old daughter, Griff, she escapes boyfriend number four, a smirking brute named Roy. Einar isn't happy to see mother or daughter, but Griff loves his log house and ranch life. This book is formula and laid out for a Hollywood formula movie (knowing who starred in the movie probably spoiled the book for me) but, it is still enjoyable entertainment.
