  • Hits all the right spots!

    Garrett Granger was all set to expand the pond near his great-grandfather’s house, acquire more cattle, when word comes that some women, widows, have invaded the dilapidated house. And the widow in charge is none other that Nicky Marlow, whom Garrett dated all but one month eighteen years ago, back in high school. Garrett had dumped Nicky for Meredith, who became his wife, now ex-wife. Nicky also has her little daughter Kaylee along, which aggravates Garrett’s feeling of loss; he lost his daughter. Nicky says she’s not moving from what will be The Widows’ House, Garrett says she’ll stay there over his dead body. Well, not really, however there is literally a skeleton in the closet! There’s no getting around it: NO GETTING OVER A COWBOY is a fantastic book! Delores Fossen pulls all the stops: there is a lot of drama, much comedy, quite a bit of mystery, a wonderful romance, and even a burgeoning second romance! Ms. Fossen has such a way with words that I don’t believe I will ever forget the jaw-dropping description of the ancient, garish Granger house. Garrett is still heartbroken over his failed marriage, he’s rather cynical, but Nicky doesn’t need any more worries and heartache than she already has, and she intends to open her refuge for widows whether Garrett likes it or not; he’s not the only one making decisions. But both Garrett and Nicky have secrets, and they’re not the only ones! There are many characters in NO GETTING OVER A COWBOY, and Ms. Fossen has everyone fully fleshed out, a lot of them are truly memorable, and even if nothing much happened, those extraordinary characters would have made this book worth reading: the Ellery sisters, and the drop-dead gorgeous, utterly irresistible, single dad bad boy Roman Granger, Garrett’s brother, whose story I am dying to read! The story is very complex, and as multifaceted and colourful as a kaleidoscope: there is absolute mayhem, side-splitting humour, a sexy-sweet romance, and a great suspense: I hung onto Ms. Fossen’s every word! I'm not usually crazy about children in romances, but little Kaylee was just perfect, she stole my heart! NO GETTING OVER A COWBOY hits all the right spots, and the super talented Delores Fossen has outdone herself big time with this book, and that is saying a heck of a lot! Absolutely fabulous from the first page to the last! ~A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection

  • Forgiveness, Healing, and Happiness

    Garrett's lost. The life he had is no longer the one he lives. The child he wanted never made it into this world. The wife he loved cheated on him. The family business went down in flames thanks to a well-trusted crooked SOB. Coming home to Wrangler's Creek wasn't in his plans but here he is, ready to make the best of the life he has now. Starting with a house that's supposed to be empty and on its last legs on family land he wants to use. Discovering the house isn't empty and abandoned annoys him. Finding out his mother, Belle (remember her? Lovely woman *rolls eyes*), leased it to a woman intent on making into a widows' retreat pisses him off. But meeting the woman running the retreat and seeing it's the adult version of the girl whose virginity he took? Yeah, that left him reeling. Nicky's had a tough life, tougher than Garrett or anyone in Wrangler's Creek knows. Her retreat isn't just for the other women; it's for her. It's an avenue towards healing that, hopefully, she will find along with happiness. Her young daughter is the light of her life, the best thing to ever come from her marriage aside from the freedom she has now a single woman. She's grateful for a place for her and the other women to meet. She's not so grateful to see Garrett is back in town and doesn't want her in that house, especially since it's the same house they had sex in years ago. Attraction and fire still burns between Garrett and Nicky but there isn't a bridge strong enough to hold them if they choose to cross that line. It isn't just because they slept together and Garrett unceremoniously dumped her soon after. It's their pasts. Garrett has an ex-wife to handle and he's still grieving the loss of a child he never got to know. Nicky's past is well hidden but it comes to light as the story goes on, and it has to be addressed if she ever hopes of truly healing, of being truly happy. Easy? No, but nothing worth having comes easy. If you've read Those Texas Nights you'll remember that Wrangler's Creek is quite colorful. The quirkiness doesn't disappear in this addition to this series. As if the chaos of the town isn't enough, or the turmoil of "it" that lies between Garret and Nicky, the upheaval of a body being found in the widows' retreat house just adds fuel to the craziness but in a good way. I like to think of this as organized chaos at its finest. It seems like nothing's connected but everything really is. Ms. Fossen has a knack for connecting dots of randomness and having them make sense. But the story, the heart of her books, isn't lost in all of that. Garrett and Nicky find their happily ever after by the time Ms. Fossen pens "The End", even though the road to it is fraught with highs and lows. What they've been searching for--forgiveness, reconciliation, healing, happiness--is found where it all began and where it's meant to continue: in Wrangler's Creek.
