    ┬┐Tugs on Your Heart

    Rachel, a chiropractor, had her heart broken by a no-good cowboy. This has created her dislike for cowboys and love. Then, she sees Jack. The cover of this book is reason enough to go out and buy it. Rachel has to help her niece through her anxiety over being adopted. Rachel has to come to terms with her parents and the fact that she gave up a child for adoption. Rachel¿s friends go through planning a wedding and trials of trying to adopt a baby. This book is packed with drama! I finished this book in McDonald¿s while eating lunch. I had to try to hide my tears. The ending is so romantic and perfect.

    Cowboy Take Me Away

    New authors are always an interesting experience. You never know what you're going to expect. When you're not used to a writer's previous works, the first book of theirs that you read can make or break whether or not you'll continue reading their books. Lucky for Christine Lynxwiler she's made it in my opinion! I really enjoyed reading this book. Rachel is a wonderful character and I really liked the way she handled herself. We find out about her past a bit at a time throughout the story and I liked it more that way rather than everything being told all at one time. Her chemistry with Jack is wonderful and I loved reading about the two of them together. The romance sometimes feels like it's playing second fiddle to the conflicts within Rachel's family but it's still very much alive and kicking. I also enjoyed reading about bull riding and cattle roping. Not activities I would ever do myself, but still fun to learn about. The story that actually held my attention the most though was Lark's story involving adopting a baby. I could have read an entire book on that situation alone! I'm looking forward to going back and reading the first book in the series and I hope there are more stories about the Pinky Promise sisterhood in the future!

    More like 4.5 stars...

    Whenever I start a new book--especially a romance--I worry that I won't enjoy it and would've wasted my time. I don't have much time these days to spare, so that would be bad. At any rate, Along Came a Cowboy was a very good read. I love romance stories that have some depth to them and this one delivers. At first I wasn't sure how the author could keep the conflict believeable enough to carry the story, but as Dr. Rachel's issues rose to the surface, things got complicated, and complications are never boring to read about. So without giving any spoilers, I'll just tell you that when the heart is moved to change and when walls come down, it really touches my heart. In this case it had less to do with the hero and more to do with Rachel's family, but it was still beautiful to experience. If you love romance that goes easy on the physical aspects, but deep on the emotional end, you'll love this story.

    deep character study

    In Shady Grove, Arkansas chiropractor Dr. Rachel Donovan just wants her practice to succeed without any hints of scandal so she goes out of her way to avoid dangling alliances with men especially with cowboys. She has had a scandal to last a lifetime so burned once she adheres strictly to her mantra of no cowboys.----------- However when Rachel meets cowboy Jake Westwood while on a town planning committee, she thinks he is quite a hunk when they are not arguing. He finds her pretty when they are in agreement and lovely when she yells at him. However, fearing her past will surface, Rachel rejects any relationship with the hunk, but love cannot be easily discarded especially when the stubborn cowboy insists on constantly coming around to see her.------------ LONG CAME A COWBOY is a deep character study starring a woman wanting to overcome her past as she seeks personal salvation. The romantic subplot enhances Rachel¿s efforts to obtain redemption starting with paragon behavior of someone nominated town citizen of the year. Readers will appreciate Rachel¿s tale supported by a strong secondary cast especially the title cowboy, the townsfolk and her family.------------ Harriet Klausner
