This cowgirl has wandered back home…
Will she choose her past or her future?
Needing time to heal after a rodeo injury, Kate Rainbolt heads to her family ranch to accept the foreman job her brothers offered her months ago. But the position’s already been filled by her ex-boyfriend, Jess McNally, and the only open job reports to him. With Jess as her temporary boss—and turning into something more—might he finally convince Kate to put down roots?
Kate has sustained a serious injury as a rodeo clown and is at her family ranch looking to take over the care of the horses. Unfortunately, someone has beat her to the punch, and it’ s none other than her old boyfriend and fiancé. Their interactions are painfully awkward, since he has taken over the position she wanted and is essentially her boss. Will she be able to recover enough to retune to the rodeo circuit, or will she be stuck pushing papers at a desk position enduring the discomfort of coming face to face of a past she walked away from?
I enjoyed the family dynamics and protectiveness the Rainbolt brothers show toward their sister. They have been forced t young age to take over for a walk away father, but do a great job of keeping Kate safe and healthy. They also allowed her the freedom to pursue her dreams in the past, however dangerous they were. The author has also written characters who turn to the Lord in prayer when troubles mount and it was nice to see that written directly into the plot. Addressing, possible TBI, parental neglect and kidney failure, there is a lot going on, but hope is there throughout because of turning their wills over to prayer. If you are a fan of cowboys, ranch hands and good family values, this one is for you! I am happy its a series, so I can explore more of what Tina Radcliffe has written. I look forward to more from the Love Inspired imprint by Harlequin, thanks for the review copy! Cowgirl’s sacrifice was an uplifting family values read with clean content and a tight knit family circle.
