Cowboy Charm School
by Margaret Brownley
From the back cover:
When Texas Ranger Brett Tucker accidentally derails a wedding,
he’s determined to bring the estranged couple back together…
but he never dreamed he’d start falling for the bride!
Texas Ranger Brett Tucker hates to break up a wedding, but the groom—notorious criminal Frank Foster—is a danger to any woman. So he busts into the church, guns blazing…only to find he has the wrong man.
STOP THAT WEDDING!
Bride-to-be Kate Denver is appalled by her fiancé’s over-the-top reaction to the innocent mistake and calls off the wedding—for good. Guilt-ridden, Brett’s desperate to get them back on track. But the more time he spends with Kate, the harder he falls…and the more he yearns to prove that he’s her true match in every way.
About the author:
New York Times bestselling author MARGARET BROWNLEY has penned more than forty-five novels and novellas. She’s a two-time Romance Writers of American RITA® finalist and has written for a TV soap. She is also a recipient of the Romantic Times Pioneer Award.
Her story, A Pony Express Christmas, will appear this fall in the Old West Christmas Brides collection, and The Cowboy Meets His Match, book two of her Haywire Brides series, will be published May 2019. Not bad for someone who flunked eighth-grade English. Just don’t ask her to diagram a sentence.
When you accidentally make a mess of things, you clean it up, right? That’s what Brett Tucker believes, but the cleanup may be more involved than he realizes.
Cowboy Charm School is a fun historical romance. With clever characters and comical situations, you’ll likely be eagerly turning pages to discover just how this “mess” will turn out.
I have enjoyed Margaret Brownley’s Christian fiction in the past, and I did not realize that this novel is not “Christian” but “clean.” There is no faith element, which I would have accepted, but in the last 50 pages or so, there are numerous times where the characters think or say, “Oh God” — but they are not really seeking His attention. With a focus on reviewing Christian fiction, I felt I must warn you of this.
Aside from that disappointment (for me), Cowboy Charm School was a fun, well-told story. If you enjoy clean historical fiction and are not bothered by such use of God’s name, then this is likely a story you’ll enjoy!
