I’ve read a good many books over the years that have characters who sing. I’ll admit that I’m not always a fan. I don’t mean to be harsh, but it’s difficult to adequately portray music with words. (It’s like trying to describe colors.) But I’m always willing to give a book a try because every so often someone gets it right. That’s exactly the case with Sing to Me, Cowboy by Lauri Robinson.
Lance Dugan is a hometown town boy who made it big in Nashville. But on the insistence of his agent, he’s come home to Amarillo to make peace with a girl from high school, a girl he feels he’d wronged so many years ago.
Heather Gibson has never forgotten Lance, wouldn’t have been able to, even if he hadn’t made it big. Everyone remembers their first love. But there wasn’t a place for her in Lance’s life. He had to follow his dreams and head to Nashville while she stayed in Texas and married the star quarterback, just like everyone knew she would. But her marriage fell apart and the last thing Heather needs now is Lance muddying up the waters of her divorce.
Sing to Me, Cowboy is a great afternoon read, a wonderful book about forgiveness and second chances, and yes, singing cowboys. Ms. Robinson does a great job of putting the reader into the action and enabling them to see the performance and even hear the music as Lance takes the stage. Heather is a very sympathetic character, the type of person we want to be friends with, even if life has pushed her down one too many times. And Lance? Ah, Lance. He’s just the man to get her back on her feet once again.

Outstanding!!! I read this book in a different venue, but I wanted you Nook readers to know how wonderful it is. This book took me on a roller coaster of emotions. Lauri Robinson not only created a wonderful hero and heroine, she wove her secondary characters in beautifully. Sing to me Cowboy is no fairy tale, it's more real than that. I don't know how she packed so much feeling into such a small book. I intend to look up her others.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
