Maira's Books

In January of 2005 I started this blog as a record of books I’ve read as I was afraid I would forget what I have read. I have often referred back to my own blog to remember a book's contents or see what I have read by an author. I have enjoyed passing my books on to friends or recommending books to read. I know I have missed recording some, but in general I try to keep up with what I have read or listened to.

How to Handle a Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy (2014)

Picked this up in Wall Drug, South Dakota on the way home from Wyoming. Was just looking for some light reading with a Wyoming/Western theme and this fit the bill with hunk on the cover. Yes it was a typical romance, but I did like Sierra Dunn and her devotion to the boys in the group home she was setting up in a small town in Wyoming. Another lost friend, Riley, lands on her doorstep. Ridge is a rodeo cowboy, whose career is over due to a major injury. He is looking for ways to fill the rest of his life. Training horses is one part of it, but he wants to do more and offers to volunteer working with the group home boys, to pay back a bit of what was given to him. Here he meets Sierra and we have the attraction, but reasons on both sides not to engage. I did like the small town Wyoming details, the way they watch out for each other, the things that are important to them in this wide open country. I also liked the fact that the two main characters weren't isolated, but part of a past with connections to other people; Ridge has his brothers and the townspeople.
