Rancher Kip Cosgrove promised his dying brother he'd take care of his motherless young twins. So when the boys' estranged aunt shows up on the Cosgrove doorstep with a will and the law on her side, Kip digs in his boot heels. Nicole Williams is wonderful with the boys, but Kip is just as much their kin as she is. And until legal issues are settled, she'll have to abide by his rules. Which means visiting the twins at the ranch. Seeing how much he loves the boys. How much they love him. And maybe staying forever.
A transplanted city girl, Carolyne moved to the country when her fiancee and now husband, decided he wanted to farm. The move took quite well and Carolyne learned to milk cows, herd cows, drive a tractor, can, freeze, garden, bake, cook and preserve. She and her husband raised four wonderful children and took in numerous foster children. Somewhere along the way Carolyne decided she wanted to recreate her own version of the romance novels she loved reading. In her writing she yearns to show redemption and change and the chance to start over. Coming home to faith and love is a thread that is woven through every story she writes.
The author defined what real family is perfectly. Family isn't about blood and biology. It's about love.
When Rancher Kip Cosgrove came home one day with his two little fatherless nephews to find a woman on his porch, he had no idea his world was about to be turned upside down. But when this woman declared he was no relation to the boys while she was, he was ready to fight for the two little boys with everything he had in him. Nicale Williams was not going to just pick them up and take them home with her as if they were lost pets. This book had many twists and turns that kept the reader wondering just what the story was. Shocking revelations were made at the end of the book that really helped to define what a family really was all about...
Kip had so much on his plate. He had a teenage sister that never did grow up in the book, an ailing mother whom he had to care for, and two little boys he loved so very much. I found myself hurting for him! By the end of the book I liked Nicole, but it took some doing. I rooted for Kip and his boys throughout the entire book and felt he was doing the right thing for them in his treatment to Nicole. Nicole's father was a jerk and deserved neither daughter he had raised...just my opinion!
Some unanswered questions were left at the end of the book, but then that's real life. Sometimes the entire story and truth can never be revealed - especially when the truth is taken to the grave.

I bought the book Cowboy Daddy because a gentleman friend of mine told me that is was such a heartwarming story that he has read it over and over again. He said that before reading the novel he was kind of an irritable guy, in his older years especially. It surprised him that he loved the book so much. And therefore, he said that it touched him to tears, made him a more gentle man and in turn has changed his life. His relationships with his wife, children, and extended family has been affected by his new found 'softness'. I will read it soon but am choosing the correct time to do so.
