The Cowboy Tutor was another example of Linda Ford's interesting books. I read this one and then ordered the other two in the Three Brides for Three Cowboys series. It was about people who aren't wealthy but are doing for others. It contained several characters who were eeking out a living without a father in the home (he had passed away)at a time when women's were not given employment except for housework or teaching. I thoroughly enjoyed all three books in the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A light sweet romance. A terrific romantic plot perfect for all ages. It's a bit reminiscent of Grace Livingston Hill.
I loved it & am going to need to grab the rest of the series.
Perfect for a YA romance reader.
If you like cowboy romance, you should give Linda Ford a try. Her books are really good and The Cowboy Tutor is a perfect example. Easy to read and enjoyable.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Judd is after revenge for his family. He take the job tutoring Louisa thinking it’s the perfect way to keep track of the man he is after as well as staying busy. Though the one catching his eye is not his pupil but Madge. If she finds out the truth will she be able to trust him? Will Judd be able to forgive the man who did his family wrong and will they both find true love? Read the book to find out.
This is book one in the series about three sisters. This book was okay but not as good as I had hoped.
What I liked: The author is a good writer and I enjoyed the characters. The time period of the early 1930’s is not an era I have read a lot about so I found it interesting. How hard everyone had to work to survive at that time was pretty heart breaking.
What I don’t like: The story line was hard for me to get into. Madge’s family barely had enough money to pay the mortgage yet her mom hired a tutor. They talked about how the money was for the ad but I would figure it would cost more then room and board to pay for it. The revenge story line was kind of weak and there was really no climax to the story. I really finished the book feeling kind of blah about the whole book.
I did like the writing style and think for me it was just the storyline it’s self I just did not enjoy it. I did like the characters and look forward to reading the next book in the series to see what happens to the other sisters.

Review: The Cowboy Tutor by Linda Ford
The line of books really fit this book Harlequin Love Inspired Historical. The title also fits well. I enjoyed The Cowboy Tutor that is set in the great depression era. Which a lot of people are now struggling with some of the same problems.
Madge lives with her mom and two sisters. Madge was a tomboy who followed her father and learned from him skills. So when her father was died she took over the support of her family. She let the bank have most of the farm land, sold the livestock and kept a cow and calf and some chickens. She took in laundry and because she had a great big room upstairs to hang the laundry to dry so it stayed dust free.
Louisa is the oldest girl but has been sick most of her life. She is beautiful and wants so much to learn. So her mom took some of Madge money to place an ad for a tutor and hoped he would marry her.
Sally is the youngest and helps with chickens and does cooking too with her mom.
Madge had lost her best clinet and then found some of the money missing and took on another job to pay the bank so they would not lose their house too.
Justin was the tutor hired for Louisa. He had a limp and long issues coughed and was frail. He quit teaching and became a cowboy.
Judd is Justin real name he is hiding who he really is because he learned that the person who took his mothers savings was going to live in this area and he was going to get justice for his mother. Judd than plans to go be a cowboy again he loves working outside.
They turn to prayer to get through the tough times and the scriptures. I really like Madge and appreciate her willingness to work for her family. This story did leave me feeling good. I real read more books from Linda. So far I have really enjoyed the love inspires books that I have read. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
