A Cowboy For Keeps Review





 About the Book

Greta Nilsson's trip west to save her ailing little sister, Astrid, could not have gone more wrong. First, bandits hold up her stagecoach, stealing all her money. Then, upon arriving in Fairplay, Colorado, she learns the man she was betrothed to as a mail-order bride has died. Homeless, penniless, and jobless, Greta and her sister are worse off than when they started.

Wyatt McQuaid is struggling to get his new ranch up and running and is in town to purchase cattle when the mayor proposes the most unlikely of bargains. He'll invest in a herd of cattle for Wyatt's ranch if Wyatt agrees to help the town become more respectable by marrying and starting a family. And the mayor, who has promised to try to help Greta, has just the candidate in mind for Wyatt to marry. (Goodreads)





My Thoughts

I was over the moon excited for this book as it is set in my home town area. Going into this book I knew it would be really difficult to not be nit picky on the details because the setting is very near and dear to me. That being said I just struggled with loving the characters in this book. Greta and Wyatt just aren't my favorite and the story line seemed very generic western romance. I love Jody Hedlund's writing but this book felt like it was rushed when written and I just didn't get the Hedlund feel from reading it. That being said I know many people have loved it. The setting of course is wonderful and it is still a charming story.


Three Stars.
