Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Of all of my books, I feel like my Christian romance novel, "Cowboy" and I have traveled the most roads together.  Although it was my fifth finish-written full-length romance novel, it was the third I published and the first fully indie that I published. Because of extenuating circumstances with the first two, "Cowboy" became the book that put my best foot forward. It was developed into a screenplay and won a semi-finalist spot.  It was one of the first best sellers I ever had. 

This love story of the hanging-on-by-a-thread waitress and the cowboy country singer who falls deeply in love with her still twangs my heartstrings all these years later.  I finished "Cowboy" in 1998, and since then it has been released as a paperback and then it made the big jump to ebooks in 2011.  Crazy because there wasn't such a thing as Contemporary Christian Romance or ebooks when I wrote it. However, I've known since the beginning that this inspirational book was special.  I'm glad my readers think so too.

Cowboy. Wow! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a single mom, working your tail off to make ends me,and then in walks Garth Brooks into your dumpy little restaurant on a slow, rainy night? He's dressed casually and he asks you for a simple cup of coffee...but he needs a whole lot more. He's down in the dumps and feels like nothing will make him want to keep on living. Since you're not a fan of country music and your job as a waitress and parenting your five-year-old is your entire life, you don't recognize him. Okay, well maybe not someone as famous as Garth, but hey, I don't know what most of the country superstars look like so it's possible. :) Anyway, you don't recognize him and the guy is so depressed he throws caution to the wind and shares his heart with you, but he gives you his real name because he's sick of the superstar treatment. You connect on a deep level. One that's from the heart because you're not star-struck by him...Remember, you don't realize he's famous. Then he asks for your phone number so you can keep in touch and as a sister in Christ you give it to him because you really do want to minister to the guy. You feel his pain. You've experienced the same loss when your spouse died. Well he starts calling you and you strike up a pretty profound friendship based on mutual respect and the human need to be valued for who you really are, not what people see you as on the outside (a famous singer or waitress.) Your friendship deepens and he sees his need for God, but resists like most people do at first. Are you with me yet? Okay, the waitress is Charlize Theron and the singer is Garth Brooks. I can SO see this as a movie it gives me the goose bumps. Staci's novel Cowboy had me SO captivated that I read it every chance I got.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Home on the range or around the town, Cowboy by Staci Stallings is an intense and moving novel about a man and a women who find themselves in an improbable relationship with nearly impossible odds to beat. There's Beth McCasland, a waitress down on her luck, and Timothy Ashton Raines, a famous country singer at the top of his game and at the end of his rope. They meet when Timothy stumbles into Beth's diner looking to drown his sorrows in a cup of coffee, but gets an unexpected serving of compassion on the side. Feeling safe in his anonymity, Timothy pours out his heart to Beth, and she shows simple kindness in return. He is moved by her generous spirit even in the midst of her obvious poverty. Though they meet face to face only briefly, they continue to keep in touch through late-night phone calls. Worlds apart in many ways, their need for connection draws them into a closeness neither has experienced in ages. It some ways it's a reverse romance: though the `Cinderella' of Cowboy does struggle daily to make ends meet waiting tables at a rundown diner at the edge of town, and her Prince Charming comes riding into town not on a white horse but on a tour bus. Yet circumstances do not dictate character; the one who has nothing ends up rescuing the has-it-all from his spiraling depression. Timothy begins to recover under Beth's kind ministrations. Her compassion teaches a world-weary cowboy the reality of God's love and encourages him to seek God on his own. And in the end, it is Timothy's faith and perseverance that allows the two of them to finally come together. From beginning to end, Cowboy is a truly inspiring novel.

I received a complimentary copy of this book to review it. This is the first book I have read by Staci Stallings. I really got into the book in the beginning; but about 2/3 into it, it started to drag on and on for me.

The development, with God's help, of Beth and Kenzie, Lynn, and Ashton Raines was well done. You really got to know them, their feelings, and what made them into the person they were. Their struggles, joys, heartbreaks and what God can do if you only let Him. Forgiveness is a journey as is love. Staci dug deep into Beth and Ashton's souls and showed God's way compared to their way. A journey with all kinds of emotions and bumps along the way. Money won't buy happiness or love or will it? Staci shows what sacrifices can do in one's life. Enjoyable book.

I don't write reviews very often, it has to be something really special that has a "wow" factor when it's done. If ever a couple have opposing lifestyles, Ashton and Beth do. They have similarities in both know the pain of death to the one they are the closest to, but everything else is different. She loves the Lord, he doesn't think God likes him at all. He hasn't spoken to his parents in 12 years, she is close to hers. She has a limited income waitressing job, he is a famous singer with numerous people dependent on him for their incomes.
The "amazing" part of the story is how God moves and directs the characters in the book to places they would never have dreamed on their own. Without beating you over the head with a twenty pound Bible, Staci presents flawed people trying to make the right decisions for all concerned...much like real life. This isn't the first Staci Stallings book I've read, and it won't be the last. I want to get the rest of the series...after I read the first over again! Loved it!
