Back Cover: Fleeing her latest love life disaster, big city journalist Libby Brown's transition to rural living isn't going exactly as planned. Her childhood dream has always been to own a farm--but without the constant help of her charming sexy cowboy neighbor, she'd never make it through her first Wyoming season.
Handsome rancher Luke Rawlins is impressed by this sassy, independent city girl. But he yearns to do more than help Libby out with her ranch..he's ready for love, and he wants to go the distance...
Then the two get embroiled in their tiny town's one and only crime story, and Libby discovers that their sizzling hot attraction is going to complicate her life in every way possible....
Joanne Kennedy's debut novel "Cowboy Trouble" is very well done and Libby and Luke tickle your funny bone from the very start of the story. Especially her first impression of Luke when he greets her with a Howdy down to his cowboy attire and his first impression of her backside to her ugly, antique furniture. Combine the nutty town characters, a crazy wild chicken, Ivan the terrible (the jack russell terrier she tries to pass off as a huge guard dog), add in a murder, some passion, romance, and suspense and it makes for an entertaining read. Thank you to Danielle of Sourcebooks for providing me with an advance reader copy of the book. If you love romantic suspense novels, then this is a book for you.
