Cowboy Trouble





Ever since Libby Brown was a little girl, she has dreamed of running her own farm. Libby leaves the big city and purchases her first farm in Wyoming. She decides to raise chickens.

Luke Rawlins is Libby’s next door neighbor. He is quick to show Libby that she is a greenie and needs his help. First lesson…no is no such thing as a farm in Wyoming…only ranches.

Libby appreciates Luke’s help. Of course it doesn’t hurt that Luke is easy on the eyes. It seems for being a newcomer, Libby has made an enemy. Someone slashes her tires and destroys her truck. Then there is also the business of a dead body appearing. The sheriff in town is useless. So Libby and Luke decide to track down the killer themselves. Could this be the end for Libby and Luke?

Cowboy Trouble is author, Joanne Kennedy’s first book. I have to say that I liked this book but I wasn’t in love with it. The romance between Libby and Luke was good. I thought they were perfect together. The scenes involving the killer were alright. To me the killer didn’t make as prominent a character as I would have liked. Also, it almost felt like there were two stories going on at the same time versus one story that involved Luke, Libby and a killer. Luke was more on the older and more mature side as far as cowboys go but when it came to matters of the heart where Libby was involved, he was more like a young schoolboy. I found this quality enduring about Luke. I hope to see more cowboy stories from this author as Joanne Kennedy did a good job portraying the West.
