From award-winning author Debra Clopton comes the Texas Matchmakers series—about three older women who set off a nationally advertised "Wives Wanted Campaign" to bring women to their small town of Mule Hollow to marry the lonesome cowboys. A far fetched idea that's working—look out fellas, the women are coming one car at a time!
Dress store owner Ashby Templeton has provided many a wedding dress for the brides of Mule Hollow, Texas. Longing for love and a family of her own she hopes to need a wedding dress for herself one day soon. The problem is the only man in town showing any interest in her is the happy-go-lucky town flirt…exactly the opposite kind of man she’s looking for. The cowboy is gorgeous but she’s not looking for a hunk of burning love, but for a love that’ll burn for a lifetime.
Cowboy Dan Dawson’s past and his mom taught him was to smile often, it could change a life…or at least help someone loosen up a little. And if anyone in town needs to loosen up it’s the uptight Ashby. But she’s obviously not interested in anything he has to offer…good thing his past also taught him anything worth having is worth working for…

Another sweet, Christian romance by Ms Clopton . We are back in the quaint town of Mule Hollow with it’s unique inhabitants and Matchmaker trio. This time the story centers around Ashby Templeton , dress shop owner and San Francisco socialite now residing in Mule Hollow, and Dan Dawson ,cowboy, rancher, and supporter of the women’s shelter as well as a flirt, or so we think. Both have had a childhood they hide, and in the past year they have acted more like oil and vinegar, though the attraction is there. As the story develops, we learn about each of these individuals childhood. A childhood that has molded them . Because of that past, one vows to being the best mother when she gets married, and the other one fears being a father. The story is a reminder, that our experiences in life will affect us in our adulthood. That assumptions we make about someone else, can lead to misjudging them. Is what we “see” on the outside , really who the person is inside? And if not, why do they act the way they do. Another touching story in this series. I was gifted this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
This was a sweet, well-written contemporary Christian romance. Ashby came to Mule Hollow when she saw an advertisement that the lonely cowboys who live there are looking for wives. Here greatest desire is to have a family. But the only cowboy who shows her interest is Dan, a happy-go-lucky flirt. She's had bad experiences with insincere men in the past, and is convinced Dan is just like all the others. Dan's past has taught him that a smile could change a life, and anything worth having is worth working for. The interactions between Ashby and Dan were a lot of fun to read and I enjoyed this book. This story can be read as a standalone book, though it is part of the Texas Matchmaker series, all set in Mule Hollow, TX. I look forward to reading more books in this series as well as others by this author.
