The Trouble With Cowboys: A Book Review and Blog Tour

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.

About The Author:

Denise lives in Indiana with her husband Kevin and their three sons. In 1996, Denise began her first book, a Christian romance novel, writing while her children napped. Two years later it was published, and she’s been writing ever since. Her books often contain a strong romantic element, and her husband Kevin says he provides all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too!

My Review:

Denise Hunter has quickly become a favorite author of mine (I have read a number of her books), and I was very excited to have the recent opportunity to read her latest read, The Trouble With Cowboys.

The book is fantastic, with wonderful descriptions of ranch life that made it feel like I was right in the book with each page turned. Hunter is a contemporary romance author, yet as I read her books, and The Trouble with Cowboys specifically, I did not feel that it was overly mushy or cheezy. I really liked the characters of Dylan and Annie. The book has great flow and I did not want to put it down, finishing it in one sitting. The big theme that I got out of this book was the fact that our plans don't always work out, but when we align with what God wants, His plans always work! And are always what is best for us!

A great fun and quick read, that I highly recommend!
