The Trouble with Cowboys
Only one pair of boots-and the cowboy wearing them-can get Annie out of the mess she's in. ""
Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek's premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for "Montana Living." Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew.
When Annie's column is cancelled, she's given first shot at a new lovelorn column-and she can't afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie's never been in love.
Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town's smooth-talking ladies' man Dylan Taylor: She'll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he'll help her answer the reader letters.
Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can't risk getting hurt now.
The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister's antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.
When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn't know what to trust-her head or her heart.
The trouble with "this" cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.
I have read quite a few books by Denise Hunter, and I always enjoy them! The Trouble with Cowboys was another enjoyable read! I did not want to put the book down! This is the third book in the Big Sky series, but can be read alone. Having read the other books though, it was fun to know about the other characters that came up throughout the book.
Annie was a very strong character, and I loved her. I thought she was a lot older than she was, but that was just because she had basically been left to raise her sister. She had some difficulties with her sister, but I liked reading about their relationship.
Dylan Taylor is the perfect match for Annie in more ways than one. He helped her with and through so much. From the very beginning, I could not wait for them to end up together. It was just the process of getting there that was frustrating. It seemed to take forever.
Right when you think you've got the book figured out, there is a twist! It was not at all what I thought was going to happen, and made the book even more interesting/frustrating. By the end, God worked in His way and everything came together.
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
