Joanne Kennedy 11:51am February 26, 2010 Kara - Thanks so much for your enthusiasm about my book! One of them being Libby trying to make Luke believe she has a 'ferocious' dog, when it's really a small, harmless dog. Joanne Kennedy 12:00pm February 26, 2010 I'm glad you tried your hand at writing because Cowboy Trouble sounds like a good book. I'd definitely prefer it if he's not a cynic, if he has a healthy attitude toward the world in general and women in particular. You have one heck of a problem. I love the idea of the city girl meeting the country boy, but refusing to believe that 'more' can become of their friendship.
But he yearns to do more than help Libby out with her ranch. You wonder what happens to the characters when you finish. Working from home is the way to go! Luckily I'm at home so I can get up and get a drink, take long washroom breaks, work in my pajamas, etc. If you love romantic suspense novels, then this is a book for you. I love when an unknown cowboy rides into town to save the day and the rides off into the sunset. Thanks - it's so nice to see a man on the site! I'm glad you stuck with it and marched with your passions.
I have a long work day ahead of me, but I'll check back in tonight! Joanne Kennedy 11:48am February 26, 2010 Gladys - I see your point about the six-foot guys and that crick in your neck! So be sure to stop by tomorrow to see how you can win this charming book! 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. Allison, thanks for the nice review! Western romance is growing, but I wonder why I don't see more western paranormal. It sounds like a delightful story. Somewhat simplistic in the easy adjustment from city to country life but fiction is about dreaming and happy endings for the most part. Take Atlanta—just give her that countryside. But he yearns to do more than help Libby out with her ranch. A hero that isn't six-feet tall.
Kai Wong 6:03pm February 26, 2010 This is definitely different to the romances I generally read. Abby then goes on to meet some of the other colorful residents of Lackaduck — including super handsome sheriff Cash McIntyre. Libby, for all her effrontery and crazy dogs and chickens, really wants to be loved. 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. Libby and Luke work together to investigate the two year old crime. I am glad to be able to share, along with the rest of the town, in some small part of her debut novelist journey and look forward to watching her writing career unfold far beyond Lackaduck, Wyoming.
For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. A chicken will never break your heart. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. Cannot wait to read it. I will definitely pick up any further books that Joanne Kennedy writes. Contemporary romances that deal with real-life issues. Surely no one actually wore chaps in real life, even in Wyoming.
A really great read from a first time writer and I highly recommend reading! Tomorrow I will have a guest post from the author of Cowboy Trouble! But when the clues begin to point toward Luke as the perpetrator, Libby freezes her heart. Michelle, I'll check out your review, too. Stay tuned, though - you never know! Libby doesn't want Luke to be the rebound relationship so she makes it clear they are only friends. There really isn't any news in such a small town, with the exception of a disappearance of a girl two years ago. There's not that much snow, but it gets cold and really windy, so we stay in by the fire and read: Joanne Kennedy 11:51pm February 26, 2010 Cecilia, do you miss farm life? Blame it on Betty MacDonald! Joanne Kennedy 11:20pm March 3, 2010 Registered users may leave comments.
Historical romances set in countries where people don't speak English. Now throw in a crazy or two for flavoring. Molly Wilsbacher 5:45pm February 27, 2010 Wings and chaps - what fun! Joanne Kennedy has penned a winner with Cowboy Trouble, and if you love cowboys, you won't want to miss this one! Joanne Kennedy 11:49pm February 26, 2010 Robin - Thanks. I am not really into historicals, although I know a lot of people who are. When the two get embroiled in their tiny town's one and only crime story, Libby discovers that their sizzling hot attraction is going to complicate her life in every way possible. A square, stubbled chin gave his face a masculine cast, but there was something soft about his mouth that added a hint of vulnerability. 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. I had free range chickens, though. This is where the story really starts to take off as the author builds on the 'mystic' of all those small town secrets that try and stay hidden. Joanne lives in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Like Tina, what a wonderful Sunday morning surprise to see my book featured in your blog! Joanne Kennedy 11:59am February 26, 2010 Thanks, everybody, for the comments so far. Mary Preston 5:57pm February 26, 2010 I love cowboys stories. I'm even rooting for the cowboys on the Amazing Race!! They are my favorite read.
