Waste of money for size of book

Although the book was fairly well written and the story line flowed, I was disappointed because it was really just a short story The preview indicated that it was over 250 pages it was in fact only 140. Lots of previews at end of book. In my opinion a waste of money!!...

    Great read. Funny Sweet

    This book was so much fun. I loved it. I talked my husband into
    reading it and I could hear him laughing on the other side of the
    house.

    A Cattle Drive Romance

    Tall, Dark and Lonesome by Debra Dixon eISBN-978-0-307-80360-3

    Zack Weston and his horse Dap are watching as his four ranch hands and nine city slickers are moving his head of twelve hundred cattle for the autumn cattle drive. His biggest decision at the moment is whether to run for Wyoming State Assembly or not. John Carey, one of his ranch hands informs him of the pretty woman reporter he has on the chuck wagon. Zack goes to check on her and finds the wagon stuck in the mud, after helping her get out and set up, Zack has something new on his mind.

    Niki Devlin cannot believe her boss, Eli, has tricked her into coming back to Cutter's Creek, Wyoming and to a cattle drive on top of it! She left for college eight years ago and only returns for big occasions. Her life and work is in New York now. She has her own syndicated column, Heartbeat, and her boss thought a series of adventures would be great writing material. Right! It is raining, she has the chuck wagon stuck in the mud, she is in charge of cooking and she don't cook and now mister tall, dark and handsome is coming to her rescue only to find out after teasing him that he is the boss man.

    Zack and Niki get to know each other and grow closer each day on the trail. After a few days when Niki finds out Zack may go into politics she backs away. With her past she cannot be in the limelight, it would ruin his career. Cutter Creek is a small town though and the gossips don't let things go, which is why Niki had left and not come back.

    Zack has issues with believing people will stay, his mom died when he was six and his dad goes through wives so often Zack is not sure anymore how many times he's been married.  

    It is a great trail ride with fun adventures. Brass and Snickers are Zack's cattle dogs are full of fun. John the ranch hand is always full of practical jokes, the five lawyers love coming once a year to play cowboy and you even get to meet Bess, the retired chuck wagon cook.

    Contains subtle sexual situations.
