Eddie lives with his two sons at the farm that Mitch his cousin had inherited after his grandparents and won a lawsuit against Eddie’s mother for the property. Eddie’s mother have tried to turn Eddie against Mitch and that had lead to them being unable to speak together for many years. Before Mitch decided to finally take the step to move back to the ranch and make it work properly. Mitch gave Eddie co-ownership off it as they both had been pretty much inseparable since they were young and before the battle of the inheritance.

When a film director named Alex comes to the small town Eddie is suddenly starting to have weird visions/imaginary visions of a person that looks almost identical to the director something that puts Eddie on edge and his behavior toward the guy seems hostile and not nice. Until he has a second vision that changes his opinion of the person. Alex is of Mexican heritage something that makes his work to find a proper film location difficult as his father and family want the location to be specified on a location that has a history related to their country and language.

Since the man that had tried to kill Mitch in the first book still is on the run and no were to be found, Eddie and the others are still on edge a month past the incident and doing anything to protect each other from the danger of a repeat of the attack. But as Eddie and Alex start to get to know each other feelings start to bloom between them but since Eddie is still legally married to his children’s mother he hesitates and also doesn’t want to start a new relationship before he is officially divorced. But when his wife and supposed new boyfriend come knocking on his door when he is about to divorce her things turn for a slightly different outcome from what he had pictured it would happen.

To not to spoil any other content of the book I will leave my review here by saying as I picked Eddie as my favorite character of this series after reading the first book I were really happy to know thet he would get his own story and its a blast reading about his side of the story point and I’m looking forward to reading the third book in the series once it comes out!

I highly recommend this series as it's an easy read with a lot of American / Mexican stories in it that is pretty interesting to read.

Set largely on a generational West Texas ranch in the shadow of Big Bend National Park, "Love's Heirloom" continues the sweeping family saga that began with Flex and Mitch's story in Book 1 of this series. Here, the focus is on Flex's cousin and single dad Eddie and movie producer Alex, who is filming on the ranch.

Family takes the forefront in their story - Eddie's, Alex's, and their ancestors - as some mysteries from Book 1 are solved while others deepen. Ghostly apparitions, indeed! Untangling the family history and mystery of Diamondback Jack is especially compelling, bittersweet, and tugs at the heartstrings.

Longtime ranch caretakers Emma Jean and Jimmy also feature more prominently here, and Eddie's two young sons and Alex's lively and involved family are wonderful and integral additions to the series. I also enjoyed the interesting bits of area history spanning both sides of the border.
