For several months, I've seen this book cover posted in many offices and cubicles. There has certainly been a buzz of anticipation for this book's release around the office.
This cover model may have won a photo contest on Petticoats & Pistols blog (note he won it as the only fully clothed cowboy) and his presence on the cover alone may sell a million books -- but Christine Lynxwiler has penned a touching woman's journey within this cover that can't be overlooked.
Romantic Times says: "Romance takes a backseat to a more poignant story of a woman's struggle to overcome her past. Readers will reflect on the healing power of forgiveness and the importance of family." (4 stars)
Whoever warned mamas not to let their babies grow up to be cowboys never saw the man in Dr. Rachel Donovan’s waiting room.But good-looking cowboys should come with their own warning – TROUBLE!
At seventeen, Rachel’s illusions about romance were trampled by a rogue cowboy. In the fifteen years since, she’s steered clear of spurs and Stetsons—until she finds herself roped into chairing the Shady Grove Centennial Rodeo Committee. How will she handle working so closely with the one man in town she most wants to avoid?
Ex-rodeo star Jack Westwood never forgot his unrequited teenage fascination for Rachel Donovan, but now that he’s back in town, he barely recognizes the woman she’s become. Jack can’t help but wonder. . .is the feisty cowgirl he remembers still there beneath the shuttered exterior?
When a secret from long ago comes knocking, Rachel fights to maintain her sterling reputation. But can the woman who has devoted her life to healing others allow God to mend her own hurts? Will she seize the opportunity to reconcile with her past and open her heart to love again?
Don't miss the May release of Along Came a Cowboy by Christine Lynxwiler.
