“Kissed by a Cowboy” by Debra Clopton
Just One Kiss
Cassidy Starr wants to press the do-over button for her life. After her recent divorce, she finds herself cleaned out financially and emotionally by her two-timing, ex-husband. She decides to start over with the only thing she has left, an inheritance from her beloved Aunt Roxie. It consists of Roxie’s old Victorian home, and some acreage near the small town of Wishing Springs, Texas.
Cassidy is determined to do three things: First, she is going to fix up Roxie’s house to make it into a bed and breakfast. Second, she wants to plant organic strawberries to supplement her B & B income. Last, but not least, she is never going to get married again, or have any kind of love relationship.
Right away, she has trouble with that third item. Unfortunately, her new home is located next door to Jarrod Monahan, her teenage crush. If anything, he is more handsome than the last time she saw him, and still single. However, the last time they were together was quite the event. It included her first kiss, quickly followed by a broken heart–both from Jarrod.
Join Cassidy as she attempts to start a new life, and make a living in Wishing Springs. Root for her as she faces danger and mystery when she tries to find out who is involved in some modern day cattle rustling. Laugh when Cassidy finds herself in some unusual circumstances including being stuck in a doggy door, and a run-in with a pig! Experience a bit of small town life, especially when Cassidy attempts to thwart the plans local match makers have for her.
The side story of the romance between Rand and Pebble is brought to a conclusion in this volume. I would have liked for those two interesting characters to have had their story expanded on, or even had a book completely devoted to their tale.
I have read all the volumes in this collection, The Four of Hearts Ranch Romance series, and have liked them all. Even though you don’t need to read the other books to enjoy Kissed by a Cowboy, I suggest them for your reading pleasure, especially book one, Betting on Hope. Like the others in this series, this story doesn’t contain anything offensive, and is told from a Christian viewpoint. I recommend this 5-star book to anyone who enjoys fiction, or Texas romances.
