The Trouble With Cowboys by Denise Hunter
I first read Denise Hunter when I reviewed Smitten, a collection of Christian romance novellas. I enjoyed her writing there, so I was glad to review The Trouble With Cowboys.
Annie is determined that she will never fall in love with a cowboy because of her mother's past track record with them. But when she constantly finds herself thrown into situations with the handsome Dylan Taylor, a cowboy, her resolve is shaken. She's convinced that Dylan is as much a player as any other cowboy she's known, but her ideas about him are challenged as their relationship develops.
I liked Annie and Dylan. They were charming characters. Annie was rather negative, but her character developed well and become more likable as the story progressed. Their story was a little predictable but was a very enjoyable read. As Annie learns to trust God, rather than her own need for control, the story is inspirational without being "preachy." There wasn't anything incredibly new or exciting here, but it is a good, solid, enjoyable read.
I rate this one 4 solid stars and a PG for content.
I received a free copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
