Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: 79th Copper Mountain Rodeo #5
Title: The Rodeo Cowboy’s Baby
Author: Heidi Rice
Publisher: Tule Publishing
Published: September 18th, 2018
The best laid plans . . . often get changed! A year after her marriage broke up, Irish born newspaper columnist, Evie Donnelly is sent by her editor to Marietta who hopes she’ll discover someone to date there! Hooking up with a rodeo cowboy doesn’t seem like a sensible idea to Evie – until she meets Flynn, a calf roping champion who loves women but is determined not to do commitment. The attraction between them is powerful and irresistible but it also has unexpected consequences!
As usual with many Marietta based books, each book in the series is written by a different author, features a different leading couple but is based around the same event in the same main location. I love how these authors collaborate to create their own shared world with many shared characters and scenarios and this is another great example of this exemplary team work. This story has characters from the other stories but the focus is on Evie and Flynn. Learning why her first marriage broke down and why Flynn is shy of commitment make many of the events in this story even more poignant. Fairly obviously from the title, it is a surprise pregnancy story. It is also a well paced read with plenty of twists to entertain the reader and keep them turning the pages – a great addition to the series!
I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
What happens at the rodeo… Doesn’t always stay at the rodeo!
A year after her marriage has crashed and burned–along with her dreams of becoming a mother–Irish newspaper columnist, Evie Donnelly, is not impressed with her editor’s suggestion she head down to Marietta to find some ‘new meat’ for her dating column. With her confidence as a woman at an all-time low, surely the last thing she needs is to risk hooking up with a rodeo cowboy?
Despite a troubled past as a foster kid, calf roping champion Flynn is a man who adores women. Maybe he doesn’t do commitment, but he does do good times and he is only too happy to help when he discovers a smart, funny and beautiful but undeniably fragile woman behind Evie’s tough exterior who is in desperate need of his own personal brand of sexual healing.
But when the rodeo is over, Evie and Flynn can’t forget those three stolen nights together in Marietta–especially when their wild, wonderful ride turns out to have even more unforgettable consequences.
