A Big Sky Romance
This book is a story about Annie Wilkerson, who lives in Moose Creek and works as a respected horse trainer. She’s also an equine columnist for a magazine, but soon becomes the unanticipated lovelorn columnist instead. Given that Annie’s never been in love, her mother fell in love with a cowboy who deserted them, and her younger sister came back from a summer trip pregnant and without a husband, she doesn’t exactly fit the bill to give love advice to the masses.
Much to her chagrin, she finds herself making a deal with Dylan Taylor, a smooth-talking cowboy – and ladies’ man. He’ll help her answer the readers’ letters if she’ll help his soon-to-be-blind horse, Braveheart.
Unfortunately working together is not an easy feat, and Annie begins to realize that she might have misjudged Dylan – though her resentment toward past circumstances leave her unwilling (or unable) to admit it.
The Trouble with Cowboys is a story of letting God take control, of surrender, of trust, and of risk.
I give this book four stars. I wish I had known there was a book that came before it so I could have read that one first, but now I look forward to reading all three books in the series even if out of order! I hadn’t read anything by Denise Hunter before and although I do have to say the ending is a little cheesy and “happily ever after,” I am also well aware that sometimes these are precisely the kind of reads that we need.
This was such a cute story and Hunter definitely does a great job of developing her characters. I adored the two main characters – but also found myself incredibly frustrated with them sometimes … why couldn’t they just see what I could see and get together?! That’s the makings of a great love story. Hunter also does an excellent job developing her secondary characters, whose interwoven plot lines help carry the story along to its conclusion.
If you’re in the mood for a feel-good, quick and easy read, this is certainly the choice for you!
