THE TROUBLE WITH COWBOYS
In the third and final book of the Big Sky series (which can be read out of order), Hunter may use the term “cowboy” too much, but she creates an endearing story of a strong woman who learns to have faith in people and God’s plan — even if it doesn’t make sense at first. This read will not only have fans cheering the characters on, it will leave them feeling inspired in their own lives.
Annie Wilkerson likes to be in control: She has a successful newspaper column, a plan for her younger sister’s future, and she’s certain that the one man she’ll never fall for is Montana’s biggest flirt, Dylan Taylor. But when Annie’s column transitions from horse training queries to love advice and she has to ask Dylan for help, she struggles with a choice she made long ago: Never fall for a cowboy. The more Annie tries to fight it, the more she realizes all she can really do is trust in God — even if it means risking a broken heart. (THOMAS NELSON, Oct., 304 pp., $12.99)
