Heart of a Cowboy by Davis, Ferrell, Lehman, and McDonough

***** 5 stars

Reminiscent of Hallmark Movie                      


A lovely four novella anthology, Heart of a Cowboy brings together the western heroes of Susan Davis, Miralee Ferrell, Yvonne Lehmann and Vickie McDonough.

Hearts in Pursuit by Susan Davis is the tale of kinapped youngsters and their desperate older siblings becoming adults as they take on the chase of Mexican henchmen. It was fun to watch the maturation of the older teens, even beyond the adults sometimes.

Hearts Reunited by Miralee Ferrell tells the sad story of two feuding families whose children continue fueling the poison to their own personal detriment and that of their livelihoods. Miralee always has lessons for today woven into her stories of yesteryear! I loved being with her characters as they decide whether to be loyal to family or truth.

In Have Dress, Will Marry, by Yvonne Lehmann, Julie needs to escape her stepfather. Her solution? Propose to Brother Timothy, a circuit riding preacher she barely knows. Obviously, there are a few issues to be worked out!

The Hand-Me-Down-Husband by Vickie McDonough is the story of Ellen, who goes west to take care of her niece after her sister,Issy, dies. She is the antithesis of her sister, but finds herself falling for her late sister's husband. Reminiscent of a Hallmark movie.

If you enjoy clean love stories set in the old West, I recommend Heart of a Cowboy. I was gifted this ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review.
