The Trouble with Cowboys {Big Sky Romance} by Denise Hunter

Book Description:  Only one pair of boots—and the cowboy wearing them—can get Annie out of the mess she’s in.
Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek’s premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie’s column is cancelled, she’s given first shot at a new lovelorn column—and she can’t afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie’s never been in love.
Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town’s smooth-talking ladies’ man Dylan Taylor: She’ll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he’ll help her answer the reader letters.
Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can’t risk getting hurt now.
The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister’s antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.
When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn’t know what to trust—her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.

My Thoughts:  The Trouble with Cowboys by Denise Hunter is one of those fun, witty, light reads that makes for a perfect read on a cold, crisp day.  So, grab your favorite hot cocoa or frappe and travel the rough, dusty roads with Annie and her kid-siter, Sierra.
I love horses!  So this book was right up my alley.  Annie is also a writer.  When she loses her column her finances become so tight that Lincoln has trouble meeting Washington.  Trying to help Sierra through college and raise her four year old nephew, Ryder, Sierra's sweet boy.  Sierra has no idea of what the word responsibility means.  And Annie takes on more responsibility so that Ryder won't suffer.
Then there's Dylan...the great looking and kind cowboy who seems to show up at the best and worst of times.  Annie doesn't want to like him but well...he's so likable and helpful!
This fun and witty story has a fun and sometimes profound quotation at the top of each chapter.  One of my favorites is on page 219, the top of chapter 30, 
"Dear Scared Saco,
Whoever said we have nothing to fear but fear itself has never been in love."
Once again Denise Hunter write a story that will not only make you feel good but will increase your faith!
