Awww, I really enjoyed Landry and Chase's characters. They were both rather adorable and of course meant for each other. I did get frustrated at their assumptions about each other. It seemed that they would take a step forward in their relationship and then two steps back, but they eventually got there. I loved the whole concept of the dude ranch and the way that Landry and Chase managed to work together to promote their different areas of interest. The spiritual aspect of the story was light with mentions of going to church and a need for trust, but not overly preachy. A sweet story with likable characters.
I found WINNING OVER THE COWBOY to be such an enjoyable and delightful read. The plot of the story was wonderful and it called to me whenever I wasn’t reading. I have said this before and I will say it again, that alone makes it a wonderful book. You get so caught up in the story and the characters; you just want to run back to them at any given chance. What I loved most about the characters, is both Landry and Chase’s love for their family, friends, and of course the Lord. It is absolutely refreshing to find a story nowadays that openly talks about God. And of course if you throw a cowboy in there, what is not to love? 4 Stars!
Landry escapes the sympathy and embarrassment of her hometown after Kyle, her former fiancee, leaves her standing at the altar. When her best friend dies on her honeymoon, Landry discovers she is named as part owner to her friend's ranch. Still shaken from her friend's death and her fiancee's rejection, Landry leaves her hometown only to encounter Chase, her best friend's brother, and the other part owner of the ranch. Under the provisions of the will, both Chase and Landry must run the business for a year before the agreement can be breached. Chase doesn't want her involved in the business, much less in his heart, and sets out to prove she has no place on the family-owned ranch He's taken aback, however, when he realizes how business savvy Landry is--not to mention how beautiful she is. Not only can she hold her own with Chase, she has a wealth of unique ideas that will grow the ranch. In the process, he finds it harder and harder to remain distanced from Landry's charm and intelligence.
Landry tires of Chase's constant tests and demands but finds herself falling for this strong-willed, sultry cowboy. Trust slowly envelops her heart for the first time since Kyle left her. But when she overhears a conversation between Chase and a farmhand, she is devastated. She decides to leave the ranch, refuse her inheritance, and bury her feelings for Chase by doing the unthinkable.
This book has the quick pacing I've come to expect from Vanatter. Well-crafted twists are brilliant and her characters are solid and endearing, realistic and memorable. They will stay with you long after you read the final pages. As an added plus, Vannatter weaves in a delightful secondary character--Resa, a respected, enigmatic, well-known Texas furniture designer. Hints of Resa's intriguing background added to the tension and the overall enjoyment of the story. I have a feeling Resa will be featured in the upcoming book in this series. I am eager to find out more about this mysterious woman.
