Cowboy's Surrender Book Three: A Match Made in Texas Book Four: Lone Star Heartbreaker Book Five: The Cowgirl's Secret
The Doctor Wears a Stetson is the first book in my Diamondback Ranch Series featuring the four McCade brothers--Dallas, Cameron, Austin, and Tyler--and their sister, Tori. I set the books in the rugged ranch land of the Texas Panhandle where I visited my grandparents on their farm every summer when I was a kid growing up. They're gone now, but the memories live on.
Remember: Life's too short NOT to love a Texan!

First the positive. I LOVED the hero. He is great, has everything going for him. The heroine lacks a brain most of all. Gads I got so sick of her I wanted to just drive her off a cliff. How stupid to pass up the love of your life for some supposed promises made to a dead man who she didn't really love, who didn't love her and who was holding on to a grudge that his great grandfather had and he didn't even know what it involved. How backwoods of them all.
I absolutely HATE it when the heroine tells the hero to take a flying leap and then the next day she is puzzled because he doesn't call. REALLY? I thought it was rather amazing that the promises she made and felt duty bound to keep were the ones that seemed to serve her most of all. The ones she broke were to the woman that was like a mother to her, doing damage that could never be repaired but they would get over it in time, like next week. Her high sense of purpose seem to come in to play when it suited her needs.
I am 77% through with the book and I am so tempted to just exit out and move on I am so sick of her. Seems she just creates one drama after another and they all involve stuff that she has absolutely no control over. Her husband dies in an accident and she feels guilty because the town has no hospital or local doctor. Course, he grew up in this doctor less town so you have to wonder what he was thinking. But then she beats herself up on a regular basis because there was no doctor. Of course, the fact that there never had been a doctor in this town doesn't seem to matter. Just doesn't make any sense except to play into her drama.
I really want more for the hero than this chick. I just don't see what keeps him hanging on!!!
I saw all the great reviews and thought I would give this book a try. Right? wrong. The heroine wore me out with her immature outlook on life. 1. how could he have broken her heart when he left town and they had only gone to 1(one) high school dance together? 2. The reason for not wanting to be with him (a promise she made to her dead husband) was lame. 3. They didnt use any protection because she thought she was barren (what about std's) 4. And lastly.....who the hell childishly turns down a proposal from someone you LOVE without telling the person why?
I did not enjoy this book and wojuld not recommend it.
In THE DOCTOR WEARS A STETSON, Ms. Novark has created a wonderful reunion story. One date while in high school set the hearts of Jessie Devine and Cameron McCade on a one-way course to each other. Several detours popped up along the road, but they are given a second chance for true happiness.
I loved this story and was captured from the very beginning, when Cameron asks Jessie to go to the senior prom. Fast forward ten plus years and a reunion with sparks is set. If I had Ms. Novark do anything different, it would be to add to ending. I really, really wanted Cameron's reaction to the news Jessie had just given him. I'd loved to have seen the shaky hand and thumping heart. But even with that insight omited, the story is great and I highly recommend it.
This is an okay read, but is lacking a few things. The heroine was a likable tomboy. I liked that she was a tough girl who made it on her own and found a way to fulfill her dreams even with the challenges she faced. However, she creates a lot of unnecessary drama with all her promises. At one point I lost track of all the promises she made and some of the seemed stupid. She promised not to sell the rights, or get involved with the McCades or....etc. some of these promises just appeared to come out of nowhere.
When I saw the word barren, I almost lost it. What 30 year old woman in the 21st century uses the word barren to describe herself? Then refuses to get basic medical care to determine why she was unable to have kids! Sometimes lines were just dropped in or dialogue with no supporting backstory. At one point Jesse is described as practically a daughter to the hero's mother. But we're also told that her first husband had a long-standing feud, so when did they have time to build this quasi-family relationship? The hero had no idea the "depth" of the relationship his mother had a relationship with her. There are just a lot if unconnected threads woven. Overall it's a sweet read, but it's not a keeper.

How does the story start? Hot senior asks freshman tomboy to the prom. First kiss for the girl. Awesome Chemistry. But boy leaves town to be a doctor. Sounds good up to this point, right?
Seventeen years later, boy-turned-doctor comes back. Meets girl again. Now a young widow mechanic. Girl still loves boy. Boy just wants sex for now. The chemistry is boiling hot, after all. So they go out a couple of times. Except girl runs hot and cold. Hot with passion. Then cold when guilt sets in.
And that's where the stupid plot comes in --- the girl'a reasons for guilt. There's the promise to her husband to never sell the mineral rights to her land to boy's family because of an old feud; H and h decide to do some research on the feud (duh); turns out reason for feud is stupid. Ok. Issue resolved. Next. Now girl worries about boy leaving again. Initially, she decides carpe diem. The not. Then switch again. Then not. Geez, even politicians don't flip-flop like this. But when boy finds a reason to stay, now girl worries about whether boy wants her. Then boy asks her to marry him coz he now realizes he loves her. But girl says no because she can't have kids? Apparently, first husband had wanted kids but failed. Boy proposes fertility test. Does she say yes? No! I mean, if you really love somebody, can't you be bothered enough to take a silly test? No! They have been doing it for months and she hasn't gotten pregnant! What is this? The stone ages? I mean really! Is this teenage fiction? Sounds like it. Did h think that if she was fertile, she should be pregnant immediately? WTF? H proposes adoption. He loves her more than kids. Does she say yes? No! Because now she fears disappointing him! Duh!!!Read more ›
