A STRANGER TO OWNING A TINY BIT OF YOUR SOUL!
on June 23, 2018
5 STARS to Aurora Hanson for Capturing a Cowboy 's Heart: A Historical Western Book 1, a superbly written tale of a ranch in the time of stagecoachs, saloons, cow drives, and ranches that had cooks that fed the hands. Yes, Earle the owner was considered one of the best horse trainers around and people paid to have their horses well trained by him, but it was essentially a cow ranch first and foremost, but his goal was that it would one day be a thriving horse ranch. Emmie had sold everything and headed west to a cousin who had left town before she arrived, Earle 's Aunt wanted to help her and introduced them, and before you know it she was in the way to Earle's ranch to cook for the crew. It was a delight reading about a city girl who was scared of horses and chickens who knew nothing at all about the outdoors or animals start to learn about milking goats because she had to have breakfast ready for the men. Furthermore, she had learned things that was good and handy to use from her working jobs in the city; and was fiercely protective of Earle since he had saved her and their souls touched a little even as strangers. Then a mystery to solve someone was rustling cows, set up traps that harmed horses & men and has come in to the ranch thinking it empty to run all the horses to be trained off, used a whip on a few and on Ennis these people meant trouble, but why? Then offers come in for the ranch but why? My emotions ran the gambit reading about the ranch, the gang, Earle and Emmie also the wonderful friends and neighbors they have. I almost felt like I was sitting in the cookhouse drinking my own cup of coffee listening when they sit around talking. I really enjoyed this ARC copy of this book and I decided to freely and in my own opinion give this review, gladly.
