Editorial Reviews

Romantic Times

This completely compelling and suspenseful novel will leave you wanting more. Lynxwiler puts you in the middle of the action, where you're thoroughly engaged and where the scenes come to life. The dialogue and the plot run at a smooth pace as she cuts between the various stories of the McCord household. Fans will not be disappointed and new readers will want to read everything she's ever written.

I enjoyed Cowgirl at Heart immensely. There was plenty of romance, tension, action, and intrigue to keep my nose stuck in the book all night. It was nice to read about the lives of other McCord sisters Crystal (from The Reluctant Cowgirl) and Kaleigh, as their own stories continue. Lynxwiler creates a thrilling atmosphere with pursuers out to get Elyse, but keeps many tender moments alive throughout. I also like how Lynxwiler's books deal with tough life issues in a manner that makes the story come alive and feel very real. It makes me want to read more, more, more!

Authors' Choice Reviews

A captivating story with characters that stay with you long after you've put down the book. Characters that make it hard to wait for the next book in the series. Though this was the first book in the series I read, the story is written in such a way as to be complete in and of itself while integrating and moving forward the story lines that went before. Faith element: medium, well integrated. A grace-filled story of fear to faith.

    Find your inner cowgirl

    Elyse McCord is a local legend dog-whisperer. When she follows a lead about an abused dog and ends up on the wrong side of a gun, Andrew Stone comes to her rescue. Then it turns out Elyse may have not one, but TWO vile men pursuing her, and Andrew decides to stick around and offer his protection. What neither Elyse nor Andrews realizes though, is their growing feelings for each other.

    Great book

    Loved this book! It was so great to read about a charcter that struggles with the same insecurties and painful shyness that I struggle with! And reading how she, with the help of God and her self appointed hero, she was able to overcome her fears and trust again! Great book

    Courtesy of Flamingnet.com Teen Book Reviews-homey romance for dog lovers

    Elyse McCord is a dog lover. She helps dogs in every way
    possible. When she hears of a starved dog, she follows her
    gut to save him. But saving the dog gets her into more
    trouble than she can handle. She is held under a gun and is
    threatened by Zeke. But Andrew, a local painter, is there to
    help her. He saves her life, but in the meantime tries to
    solve the mystery of his wife's death. Will the duo help
    each other achieve their goals?

    I thought the book had a homey sort of feel to it.
    Although it wasn't very suspenseful, it felt like home. The
    McCord's family loves each other, and the author makes the
    reader feel like part of the family. But I felt like there
    should be more of a climb to the climax. Overall, the book
    was one of a kind. I don't think I have ever read a book,
    where you feel like you are at home.
