Overview

A Cowboy at Heart, an engaging Amish-meets-Wild West adventure from bestselling authors Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith, weaves a clever and romantic tale of new starts and second chances.

1886—Jesse Montgomery is beginning to feel restless. Though he's grateful to his friends Colin and Emma for helping him get on his feet again after a few bad choices and some hard living, surely the Lord doesn't want him to stay in Apple Grove forever. Doesn't the Almighty have plans for this reformed rowdy cowboy to build a life of his own?

When an unscrupulous cattle baron tries to steal Amish land, Jesse intervenes and is wounded. Lovely Katie Miller, the young healer in the district, attends to him while trying to guard her heart. This sweet Amish widow cannot risk falling in love with an Englisch cowboy, charming though he may be. And yet—she believes God has a life for her too that is more than what she can presently see. Could there be a future with Jesse only He could bring about?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Apple Creek resident Katie Miller has her hands full with Englisher Jesse Montgomery when he's wounded trying to protect local land from a cattle magnate. As the local healer, it's Katie's job to care for him. But she is developing feelings for the cowboy, even though she knows he doesn't share her faith and he's getting ready to move on. Does God have a plan for these two very different people? VERDICT This touching, character-driven story will appeal to Copeland and Smith's many fans, as well as earn them new ones. Though it's the third entry in an Amish-meets-the-Wild-West series (after The Heart's Frontier and A Plain and Simple Heart), it stands well on its own. Sure to delight Wanda E. Brunstetter fans.

    Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith in their new book, "A Cowboy At Heart" Book Three in The Amish Of Apple Grove series published by Harvest House Publishers takes us into the lives of Katie Miller and Jesse Montgomery.




    From the Back Cover: She loves me... she loves me not... she loves me




    Kansas, 1886-Jesse Montgomery is beginning to feel restless. He's been off the Chisholm Trail and on a family farm for a year now. Though he is grateful to Luke and Emma for helping him get on his feet again after a few bad choices and some hard living, surely the Lord doesn't want him to stay in Apple Grove forever. Doesn't the Almighty have plans for this reformed rowdy cowboy to build a life of his own?




    When an unscrupulous cattle baron tries to steal Amish land, Jesse intervenes and is wounded. Lovely Katie Miller, the young healer in the district, attends to him while trying to guard her heart. This sweet Amish widow cannot risk falling in love again-especially with an Englisch cowboy, charming though he may be. And yet-she believes God has a life for her too that is more than what she can presently see. Could God possibly have a plan for both of them far beyond what they can see?




    This is the third and last book in this series, which I am sorry to see come to an end, and this time the focus is Jesse Montgomery. You can read this volume as a stand alone with no problem but it is a lot more fun when you know the character's growth from the first two books. If this was a movie it would be the kind that John Wayne made during his middle period and he would be Jesse. There is a cattle rancher trying to drive off the Amish farmers and Jesse stands up to him almost getting killed in the process. Katie tends to him and the sparks fly but each is wounded and needs to heal before their romance can actually work. In the meantime the battle is on for the safety of Apple Grove. "A Cowboy At Heart" is a romance but it is much, much more. Ms. Copeland and Smith explore the themes of Grief over the loss of a spouse and Standing your spiritual ground when it seems that all is lost. I enjoyed this book a lot and am looking forward to the next series from this talented duo.

    The year is 1886 and Jesse Montgomery, has finally kicked the demon whiskey! With the help of his friends Colin and Emma, he has waged his battle and won.
    When someone tries to steal Jonas and Mammi Switzer's farm, he goes out to help, only to be shot in the back. Young Widow Katie Miller, comes and helps the Doctor, and stays to help the young cowboy. Sparks tend to fly between them, but Katie is Amish.
    Loved spending more time in this Apple Grove Amish Community. Good to see and hear from old friends. Will this be the end of the Settlement, they will not fight to save what is theirs. This peaceful society, will turn the other cheek. Will Jesse be able to help them? Will the Bishop Miller let them accept the help of the English Jesse?
    Loved the twists and turns of this story. Through out it all, we see a strong love to follow the Lord's ways.
    Don't miss the final story in this trilogy, you can read this one alone, but don't deprive yourself of two other great books!

    I received this book through First Wild Card Book Tours, and was not required to give positive review.
