Denise Hunter in her new book “The Trouble with Cowboys” Book Three in the A Big Sky Romance series published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Annie Wilkerson.

From the back cover:  Only one pair of boots—and the cowboy wearing them—can get Annie out of the mess she’s in.

Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek’s premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie’s column is cancelled, she’s given first shot at a new lovelorn column—and she can’t afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie’s never been in love.

Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town’s smooth-talking ladies’ man Dylan Taylor: She’ll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he’ll help her answer the reader letters.

Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can’t risk getting hurt now.

The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister’s antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.

When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn’t know what to trust—her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.

A cowboy, a horse going blind and a family in a bit of a crisis, add them all together and you have a recipe for a great story plus this is a Western, a contemporary Western I grant you but any Western is better than no Western.  Annie is running the whole show, she is trying to take care of her nephew, her sister and her son, their ranch, train the horses and be the only source of income.  The strain is getting to her.  Plus, the cowboy, Dylan, with the handicapped horse, is trying to romance her and she finds she doesn’t mind that so much even though she doesn’t trust cowboys.   “The Trouble with Cowboys” is about judging people and then having to repent for those judgements.  It is about healing from past hurts to embrace the present and move into the future.  “The Trouble with Cowboys” is a sweet romance that has some really nice moments in it.  I liked it and look forward to more from Denise Hunter.
