April McBride may be a spoiled rich girl with a life of ease, but she is passionate about horses. When she arrives in Lewistown, Montana, she finds Wes Owen training a horse and immediately objects to his method. Fortunately for Wes, April is nearly late for her brother's wedding and must save further objections for a later time. The ensuing encounters between April and Wes are no less dramatic and confrontational. Strangely enough, April's feelings toward Wes move from frustration to intrigue. Will April look past the obvious differences between Wes and herself to find a common ground? Normally, I absolutely love a well-written historical romance. However, A Love of Her Own by Maggie Brendan is what I would call an "okay" book. It was diverting enough, but overall, it was too predictable. I enjoyed the romantic moments of the book and April's transformation from spoiled child to kind young woman. However, I felt the story lacked authenticity. Some situations/things just seemed too convenient while others seemed downright strange. Unfortunately, I never really felt like the book grabbed me and drew me in. I recommend renting A Love of Her Own from the library before buying.

This was a great addition to the series. I was really glad to see that April McBride changed after the first book! I really enjoy this series! I hope that this isn't the last! If there are more books in this series to come, I will be purchasing them on the nook!

This was an enjoyable and interesting read as 3rd of the series. I almost always enjoy learning more about the interesting characters that start the series. And this did not disappoint.

Brenden really redeemed the character of April McBride in this book. I really didnt like her in the first book in the seres and it was so awesome to see her redeem herself and blossom into a truly great person in this book. I really hope that the author would continue this series. I'd love to find out what happens to Louisa, Natalie, Marion, and Cynthia.

This book was simply a wonderful simple read. The author uses language to make you feel that you are right there in Montana with all the characters. I could even taste the dust and feel the cool weather. This book dealt with some issues of the heart. It made me think about my own, whether I'm a giver or a taker. Although, not a serious book - it still was one that was thought provoking. I would definitely recommend this book for a weekend read or one for a road trip. I wouldn't mind reading more of Maggie Brendan. Blessings to you! You are loved! "Available June 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group."

A Love of Her Own by Maggie Bredan from back of book: Still cautious after a broken engagement, April McBride fully intends to guard her heart when she travels to Lewistown, Montana, to attend her brother's wedding. One look around the small mining town convinces April that doing so won't be difficult-just a bunch of dusty shops, bad service, and ill-bred cowboys. But a run-in with horse trainer Wes Owen opens up vast possibilities for frustration, embarrassment, friendship, and....love? Can April and Wes see past their differences to envision a future together? Or, are they destined to live the rest of their lives alone? My Review: April McBride is a spoiled daughter of a large rancher in Colorado and used to having everything handed to her. She loved horses and loved to ride in her blue jeans and boots. She didn't care what others though of her she wanted to do things her way. Her parents had gone abroad when the news came that her brother Josh was getting married, so she set out on the train for the wedding that was taking place in Montana. She left and got part of the way then had to take a stage coach, she encounter a doctor, a woman with her baby and she didn't like either one. The stage coach had a broken wheel so they would have to wait until help came along. She talked the driver into letting her use on of the horses as she could not miss her brother's wedding. She changed into her levis and boots and left the others behind. She arrived in Billings with her hat and jeans on so everyone thought she was a man. April ran into the church where the wedding was going on just the way she was dressed and didn't have time to talk to her brother much before he left on his honeymoon. April decided to wait in Billings, Montana until Josh came back and found out there were no rooms at the hotel for her and she was not used to doing anything for herself. She had to stay at a boarding house and even do her own washing! She meet up with Wes at the boarding house and though he was a dirty looking cowboy. But, how her mind changed at the time went on. What kind of life did she live in this dirty town and what all did she find herself involved in? What will she be doing by the time her brother comes home? I could just go on and on but I better not tell the entire story, the author may not like for me to give away everything. This book was provided to me for review by Revell publishing and the Author.

A LOVE OF HER OWN by Maggie Brendan is a delightful Inspirational Historical Romance set in 1896 Lewistown, Montana.It is the third in the Heart Of The West series, but can be read as a stand alone. It is well written with depth and detail. It has a gentle prairie romance,faith, friendship, adventure, intriguing details and lively,witty dialogue.The characters are charming, intriguing, and lively. The heroine, April, is difficult at times, hard-headed, stubborn, beautiful and used to getting her way. The hero, Wes, is handsome, rough, stubborn, and frustrated by April at times. They learn to trust each other and their feelings. April came to Montana for her brother, Josh's, wedding,and finds friendship, trust, and love along the way. Wes finds he is in love with April, from first seeing her, all battered with dirt and dust.This is a true Western, Inspirational love story. If you enjoy Inspirational Romance and Western intrigue you will enjoy this one. I would highly recommend this book. If you have not had a chance to read the other two in the series,( Book One No Place For A Lady and Book Two The Jewel Of His Heart), I would recommend reading these two also. This book was received for review and details can be found at My Book Addiction and More and Revell.
