A cowboy finds love in the most unlikely place in New York Times bestseller Donna Grant’s newest Heart of Texas novel, Looking for a Cowboy.
A beautiful stranger has come to Clearview, asking questions that are nobody’s business. Cooper Owens also wasn’t born yesterday. He knows that this out-of-towner is hiding a dark secret of her own. Much as he knows he should head in the other direction, he can’t make himself turn away. . .
P.I. Marlee Frampton always wanted to lead a nice quiet life, working as a cop in her local police department. But that dream came to an end when her sister was murdered—and her baby kidnapped. Now Marlee’s come to Texas to investigate the Harpers, who may be linked to shady adoption agencies. Cooper can’t believe that his friends could be involved in anything so sinister…and soon he makes it his mission to help Marlee discover the truth—and keep her safe in his arms.
“Filled with passion, suspense, and strong characters.”—Rendezvous with Romance on My Favorite Cowboy (5 stars)
NICUnurse’s Review of Looking for a Cowboy by Donna Grant
Looking for a Cowboy is book five in Donna Grant’s heart of Texas series. I’ve skipped around in the reading order a bit (only read a couple of the other books) and I can tell you that while they are written as standalone titles, there are enough mentions of previous main characters in this book that it can raise some questions about how all of them connect. So it seems I’m going to have to read the entire series to satisfy my curiosity regarding how they all fit and what their backstory really is. Despite that, Cooper and Marlee’s story is a good read.
NICUnurse’s Rating: My only complaint with how this book ends is that I didn’t get the ultimate resolution that I really, really wanted. With that said, that’s a very personal opinion, so I’m not going to let it color my review as that’s the author’s prerogative. Maybe she’s got that planned for a future book, and I just don’t know that yet. However, for the sake of full disclosure, I have to admit that I feel like each time I pick up a book by this author, it’s a bit of a gamble. I’ve loved some of her books, and I’ve not cared for some of them. That seems to be true in about equal measure. But it’s enough that I keep going back, hoping for a tie-breaker, and this book seems to be just that. It helped to tip the scale to the side of “I like most of this author’s books,” so I’ll keep reading them. This story had action and suspense. It also had romance and a good bit of emotion. And there was a resolution that leads to a HEA. All of these elements added up to a page-turning and sometimes heart-pounding good read. If you like romantic suspense/thrillers, I think you’ll like this book.
I give Looking for a Cowboy by Donna Grant 4 out of 5 propellers!
