The Trouble with Cowboys, Denise Hunter

The Trouble with Cowboys
by Denise Hunter

Pick up the book and you might think, contemporary romance.  Turn the book over to read the category and you will see Christian romance.  OK, you might think, this will be a nice light read - a book to simply get lost in for a few hours...right?

Oh, so wrong.  This book was pure delight.  The main characters are truly charming and I found myself grinning from ear to ear through most of the book.  The dialogue is witty and clever, which is a refreshing change from other contemporary books I have read lately.  Of course the big picture ending is somewhat predictable, but who cares when you are drooling over the pages just imagining having a moment with this charming, winking, flirting, dimpled cowboy.  Love Love Love IT!

So once you get beyond the drool, what else is there?  Nope, not all drool, it has a wonderful Christian tone and a clear message of surrender to God.  A surrender that can only come when you give yourself, your life and all your plans over to Him.  A message of taking a good look at yourself and realizing you need to make some changes within yourself, changes that can only come with God's help.

About the Book: 

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.
