One Lucky Cowboy by Carolyn Brown



SYNOPSIS:

Jane Day is on the run from a former fiancé who's out to kill her. In Wichita Falls, Texas, she meets Nellie Luckadeau, a spitfire of an old lady who desperately needs someone to work on her ranch. But Nellie's drop-dead gorgeous grandson "Lucky Slade" is sure he can spot a con artist a mile away. He's determined not to let some upstart like Jane fleece his granny.  When his signature intimidation methods don't convince Jane to leave, he pours on the charm to make her spill what she's up to. She's happy to play along, but she's not going to let this hot, hostile cowboy run her off his land when all she needs is a lucky break...

When Jane can’t sleep the night before her wedding it was divine intervention that stopped her from making the biggest mistake of her life and saved her life in the process.  She could never have known where she would land would bring her to her home, her real home.

When Slade saw the new maid his Grandmother hired he immediately knew something was wrong, he thought she was for sure a con artist.  Can Jane make Slade see that she isn’t, does she even want too?  Slade and Jane’s relationship from the very beginning was tumultuous, it was a hate/hate/maybe like/hate/hate/like to love relationship.  Jane was a good character who at times could be strong, independent, caring but also immature little girl.  Slade was a strong, stubborn, caring but also could be an immature boy.

REVIEW by Heather Mc:

I struggle with this review because I do not want to give away any spoilers and I also don’t want to sound like I did not enjoy the book because I did.  What I typically not like in a book worked in One Lucky Cowboy and what I typically like would have taken away from storyline of the book.  The only thing I would have changed is at time it seemed angst was simply there to create angst where it wasn’t needed.  Kind of a 1 step forward 2 steps back situation, if that was tamed down a bit I would easily give the book 4.5 stars.  With that and some inconsistencies within the book I have to say it is a 3.5 star read but the storyline was a 4.5 star read.  I definitely think it is worth a read and I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
