Present Danger by Elizabeth Goddard

A Cowboy For Keeps by Jody Hedlund | Review


A Cowboy For Keeps by Jody Hedlund released earlier this month from the incredibly talented author, Jody Hedlund. It is a story full of charming dialogue, unique and personable characters, beautiful scenery (I can say that when an author does a good job describing scenery right?). 

“Greta Nilsson's trip west to save her ailing little sister, Astrid, could not have gone more wrong. First, bandits hold up her stagecoach, stealing all her money. Then, upon arriving in Fairplay, Colorado, she learns the man she was betrothed to as a mail-order bride has died. Homeless, penniless, and jobless, Greta and her sister are worse off than when they started.

Wyatt McQuaid is struggling to get his new ranch up and running and is in town to purchase cattle when the mayor proposes the most unlikely of bargains. He'll invest in a herd of cattle for Wyatt's ranch if Wyatt agrees to help the town become more respectable by marrying and starting a family. And the mayor, who has promised to try to help Greta, has just the candidate in mind for Wyatt to marry.”

I will say that while I thoroughly enjoyed this book it is not my favorite from Jody Hedlund. I think part of it being the fact that marriage of convenience tropes aren’t my favorite  it was still an enjoyable read and one I’ll definitely be re-reading
