Review: Tall, Dark and Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy
She's trading in her luxe lifestyle and heading for Wyoming...
In the wake of a nasty divorce and with her ex's vicious cronies hot on her heels, Lacey Bradford heads for Wyoming in search of an old friend. But her high school pal Chase Caldwell has changed, hardened by bitterness and loss. He's considerably less than thrilled to see the girl that broke his heart - especially when Lacey turns up on his door step asking for help.
As the two grapple with the ruins of their former friendship, a brand new, surprising attraction ignites. Lacey is boldly beginning to create a new life for herself. And, Chase has to admit, he's rather be part of that life than be left out in the cold alone... description taken from back cover.
I love these types of plots! Guy likes girl. Girl never knows. Girl falls for guy down the road. I especially like them when the guy is rough around the edges, like Chase is with his hardened heart.
I liked Lacey's character (as well as Chase's). They were well written and I enjoyed reading them and about their romance. And, of course, I liked the drama! Lacey had been a trophy wife and had never been able to go after the goals she had made when younger. Chase's family had gotten cheated out of their farm by Lacey's husband (now ex-husband). Lacey's ex's vicious minions are after her as well. All of this made for good drama.
The romance was very cute, but I don't want to give too much away, so I'm just going to say that I very much enjoyed it. The book was great, and it will be a good re-read that will be waiting on the shelf for me.
**I was sent a copy of the book in order to write a real and honest review. I was not paid to write this review. All opinions are my own.**
