This is a fun, clean romance. When the town of Mule Hollow is all but deserted, some of the town's women run an ad for Wives Wanted hoping to find matches for all the cowboys. With the women that were bound to come, Lacy decided this would be the perfect town for her and her friend to open a salon. Lacy feels God wants her there to improve the town, making it a place women would want to live in. She also believes He wants her to settle there. Lacy wasn't looking for love so when she runs into handsome cowboy, Clint, sparks fly - but not the good kind of sparks. At first, anyway.
I enjoyed this story. The plot was hilarious! A Wives Wanted ad - what a hoot! Lacy was insanely funny. The goofy things she did left me chuckling. All she wanted to do was help the town get back on its feet. But most of the men looked at her crazy rejuvenating ideas with doubt. They were pleasantly surprised when they saw the results were good. Clint and Lacy got off on the wrong foot so they didn't like each other much. Over time their feelings changed so that they each were on the other's mind all the time.
If you like funny Christian romances, you will like this book.
I love the setting for this book! I grew up in a small town in New Mexico and could just see something like this happening there. I also had family in a small town called Muleshoe, Texas and couldn't help but wonder if that was the inspiration for the name, Mule Hollow. Lacey is such a free spirit and Clint is so down-to-earth, the proverbial opposites attract (and compliment each other) which I see so often in real life couples. Lacey is trying so hard to do the ministry she believes God has called her to do and trying not to let it be about her, that she almost misses part of why God called her to Mule Hollow - to meet Clint. I enjoyed this 1st book in the series so much and can see the potential for so many characters introduced in it to have their own stories. I look forward to reading more.
Lacy Brown drives from Dallas and arrives in Mule Hollow, Texas after reading a “wives wanted” newspaper ad. Lacy thinks she’s going to be the town’s new matchmaker, but God has other plans for her.
This was a sweet and fun Christian romance novel. It’s fewer than three hundred pages, and the author’s engaging, fast-paced writing keeps the story moving nicely. I breezed through it in an afternoon.
The characters are genuine and likable. I enjoyed the storyline even if it was a tiny bit predictable in spots. There were plenty of additional subplots and supporting characters within the story to keep readers interested.
If you like fun, clean romance novels, then you’ll love this one!
A fun clean romance with a cast of unique men and women in a dusty Texas town that had seen better days when oil was king! Mule Hollow didn't know what hit it when Lacy Brown and her good friend, Sheri, rolled into town in a pink Cadillac! God gave Lacy a vision of what God could do to revive the town of Mule Hollow and Lacy plunged all in to make it happen. Well written, funny, actually made me laugh out loud at points and kept me turning pages until I finished the book. I would definitely recommend this book. Debra Clopton is a writer that will go places and gain a loyal following.
I loved this book so much! What I loved about this book the most was that it was a clean romance, it was also very heart-warming, and it made me laugh so hard at times, that it actually brought tears to my eyes more than once or twice.
Lacy and Clint were always so entertaining when they got to sparing with both their words, and matching attitudes. I could so clearly picture all of scenes in my minds eyes. I enjoyed this 1st book in the series so much, and can see the potential for so many of the characters introduced in it, to hopfully have their own stories. Running back to check out the next in this series.
I finished Dream With Me Cowboy over an hour ago, and I’m still grinning from ear to ear. The book started with a bang (literally!) and the pace didn’t let up. Debra Clopton wrote a story that was the perfect combination of humor, adventure, emotion, and Christian growth.
Lacy, the main character, was larger-than-life. She was bold, sassy, impulsive and tender-hearted. Though the story was not told in the first person, I was Lacy for the time I was reading the book. Her adventures as she impetuously followed the Lord’s command into the small town of Mule Hollow, Texas were filled with laughter and sparks.
The author had great descriptions, fun puns and heartfelt messages in this light-hearted yet emotional journey that left me feeling like I wanted to do a victory dance at the end. And I don’t do victory dances. Ever!

Lacy and her friend enter a worn down, almost ghost town, full of hope and plans. She's bubbly and quick with her mouth, sometimes without thinking. She meets Clint, within the hour of entering the town. Not a good first impression. As you read, you follow these two as they fight their attraction to each other. She's trying to fulfill what she thinks God has challenged her to do. He's still dealing with his past, the fact he still needs to forgive. He goes to church but you realize he doesn't read God's word, but that changes. I laughed at how much Lacy seems like me, no filter here either. A story worth every penny. I haven't read Debra Clopton's books before, but will be. I love the depth of her characters and the way she describes the scenes, so I see it in my mind.
