I really liked the set up for this book, as well as the characters. Rose was timid and scared, because of the way her late husband had treated her. Combine that with a bad situation with her stepmother growing up, and you end up with a woman who questions every motive and is very insecure. She was so scared to make a mistake, and fearful that Davy would turn mean or lose his temper the way her first husband did. Seeing the way Davy cared for her and the gentle way he treated her was heartwarming.
Davy was just an all around great leading man. He was strong and sure with the way he handled horses and the cattle, yet gentle and kind to Rose. It was sweet to watch him fall in love with her and eventually see him interact with the baby. He had his own insecurities based on his past experiences as an orphan, but they just made him more understanding of Rose.
I truly enjoyed this book from start to finish and plan to listen to it again in the future.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Since I listened to the audio book version of this story, I thought that I would include the cover art in this review, as well. In the audio version of Her Convenient Cowboy, I thought that the narrator did a good job of voicing how timid and unsure of herself Rose was.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
A blizzard traps rancher Davy White in his family’s secluded cabin with Rose Evans – and she’s nine months pregnant! Help is miles away, and Davy must work to keep them both alive. As the storm rages outside, he comes to care for the vulnerable widow. Enough that he’s willing to offer her his name – against his family’s objections.
Rose will do anything for her baby, but she’s recently widowed. She doesn’t know if she can trust the feelings she has toward Davy. And she refuses to come between him and his family. But the more time they spend together, the less she can resist the comforting, caring cowboy.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
At a young age, Lacy Williams began imagining alternate endings for her favorite cartoon shows. She soon followed that with a newspaper for the neighborhood kids—”published” on a dot matrix printer!—and notebooks full of stories written in longhand. In high school she took a correspondence course and experienced an editor’s red pen for the first time. Thankfully, her passion for writing was strong enough to survive the experience.
Lacy, her husband and her two young children live in Oklahoma, where they enjoy taking their three Cavalier King Charles spaniels to the park. One of the dogs (Mr. Bingley—named after Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice character) is a registered Therapy Dog and Lacy volunteers with him at local libraries in their Kids Reading to Dogs program to help promote literacy in kids.
Lacy adores reading almost as much as writing, and usually reads the end of the book first. She promises readers happily-ever-afters guaranteed. Lacy’s debut novel won the American Christian Fiction Writers’ prestigious Genesis Award before being published. As an active ACFW member, she attends conferences and mentors new writers.
