Dallas-based private investigator Alexandra Donovan has concerns over her latest case because she cannot see a happy ending no matter what she learns. Her middle aged client Mrs. Helen Braxton believes former Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association star Brodie Hayes is her biological son abducted from a hospital just two days after she gave birth to him about four decades ago. The client wants the sleuth to find out all she can about Brodie¿s life past and present.--------------- Alex meets Brodie and both feel a strong attraction that neither anticipated as such desire has never hit them before. When he learns just who Alex is and the information about him she believes is the truth, he is overwhelmed because he now wonders just who Brodie Hayes truly is even as he knows one thing for certain, he loves Alex.--------------- ONCE A COWBOY is a terrific private investigative romance as the attraction between the professional sleuth and the retired professional rodeo participant is overwhelmed by her findings that she knew before hand would lead to someone being angry and disappointed and ready to shoot the messenger. Thus it is a stunned Brodie going through a form of the steps of grieving while also schizoid like falling in love with the bearer of bad news. Linda Warren¿s latest contemporary into a must read family drama.----------- Harriet Klausner

    A little slow...

    While I can't complain too harshly, seeing as this was a free nook, I can say it was choppy. The entire thing is written in actions, with very little feeling or thoughts of the characters behind them, and most sentences seem like fragments. I couldn't get a feel for the characters, and the romance moves from slow to suddenly there, with very little build-up, while the last plot twist seems like it was made up at the last second. All in all, it wasn't a terrible read, but nothing about it left me satisfied.

    It's an ok book, at least it was free

    It's an ok book, trying to get through it, it's been over a week, and really only read it when I'm bored. The review would be harsher if I had actually paid money for it

    Didn't care for this one

    I really did not care for this book. I thought it was over written and I couldn't even get through the first chapter before I deleted it from my library. Too much stuff and nonsense, I just couldn't get through it.
