Book Review: Falling for the Cowgirl

 

Faling For the Cowgirl

– Jody Hedlund –

Colorado Cowboys #4

Bethany House Publishers

Published 10 October 2022

♥♥♥♥♥

Falling For The Cowgirl is the fourth book in the Colorado Cowboys series and the long awaited story of Ivy McQuaid.

Sister to the four McQuaid brothers, Ivy more than knows how to stand her ground and hold her own on a horse and cattle ranch. But it’s her dream to have her own spread. She’s been entering cowboy competitions, disguised as a man, to raise the funds she needs to buy the land. But when Jericho Bliss rides back into town, everything is thrown into chaos. Of course, he immediately sees through Ivy’s disguise and threatens to tell her brothers if she doesn’t stop with the dangerous competitions. And then there are the feelings she’s long carried for Jericho. And he’s never done anything but treat her like a sister. What Jericho can’t tell Ivy is that he is now a Pinkerton Agent, hunting down a dangerous killer, and following his feelings for Ivy could get her hurt. It’s something he’s vowed never to do, but it is hard to ignore the deep friendship between them and the blazing attraction they share.

Ramblings: Rewrite, Renew, Reimagine

Rewrite, Renew, Reimagine

It’s ALIA Library and Information Week 2022. Held annually, ALIA LIW has recently changed date. Now celebrated in July, I love the creative themes (and graphic design, which is always AMAZING) for this special week. In previous years, I’ve made a big deal of Library and Information Week in my school libraries. This is a week celebrated by libraries of all categories and sizes, from public libraries to specialist libraries, so it’s nice to join in with this. However, this year, my focus has been on other things, so we haven’t celebrated LIW in the school library.

But, I couldn’t let the opportunity pass to mark the week or to reflect on how apt the theme is for our library this year.
