    FOLLOWIN' HER DREAM

    Develyn Worrell got it right--following her lifelong dream during a very tough time in her life. Got right into her world--especially the characters in Argenta. I feel like I've been there and would recognize that town if I saw it.

    Keep 'um coming!

    Hey all you single sophisticated city slicker girls....after you get lost in this story you'll be lookin' to snag you a cowboy! I LOVED this book! I got lost in the adventure...wishing I was in Develyn¿s boots....could actually taste that orange popsicle, which seemed to be her snack of choice. And which smooth talkin¿ cowboy is she gonna¿ fall for......I hope she picks __________! The downside is...it ended too soon!

    This looks like it's going to be a great series.

    Develyn is an interesting character with a boring life, a nosy best friend, and an estranged daughter. She wants adventure, but not too much. So what does she do? She impulsively decides to return to Wyoming--to a place she enjoyed as a child, hoping to recoup some of the emotion from that childhood experiece. What does she find? Tons of diversions from her goal, scary scenarios, and plenty of adventure. Her new girlfriend is a quirky character with very little tact. Three cowboys are enamored with Develyn almost immediately, and she finds herself drawn to one man in particular. However, I could see as time when on that she started seeing the good things in the other men, too. I'm thinking as the series continues that she may change her mind more than once. And poor Develyn had so many mishaps with horses taking off on her and bucking her, I'm surprised she hadn't developed a phobia. The story was enjoyable and I recommend it. I've never read a book by Stephen Bly before, but my husband loved his writing, so I gave it a try. I would have given this novel five stars, but I felt like it ended too soon, and kind of abruptly. Fortunately, I have the sequel in my hot little hands. Off to read The Mustang Breaker...

    I know these people!

    From the first page, I felt I knew these characters, especially Develyn! Loved the journey with her to the small town. Hated going through her pain, although it wasn't mine, so that helped. Kept trying to advise her. Her friends did it so much better. Anxious to read rest of series.
