Book Description:

Handsome Cowboy or Debonair Tycoon.
How’s a Girl to Choose?
Molly Lovelace dreams of a life without cares in Lockhart, Texas. She also dreams of handsome wrangler Bailey Garner, her ardent but inconsistent beau. The problem is, with Bailey’s poor prospects, she just can’t fit the two dreams together.
Then mysterious stranger Edward Pierrepont sweeps into town–and her life–and for the first time Molly wonders if she’s met the man who can give her everything. But he won’t be in Lockhart long and while it certainly seems like he talks about their glorious future together, she can’t quite get Bailey out of her mind.
What’s a girl to do with all these decisions when love is in the balance?

My Overall Feeling of the Book:

I was a bit frustrated through the first half of the book with how Molly kept going back and forth between the two men especially when she claimed to be so in love with Bailey.  Bailey was a bit frustrating as well with all his job hopping.

At one point in the middle of the book I was so upset that I almost quiet reading the book all together.  It was not going as I expected!  But don't stop reading!!!

I love how the author made such a huge u-turn in the story.  I was shocked and then couldn't put the book down until I knew how things turned out in the end.

This was a great read and I was very pleased with the outcome.

A Brief Excerpt:
"You really hurt me, pushing me away like you did."  She pulled a stem from the rosebush and began breaking off the thorns.  "I understand why, but it still hurt."
 Page 92

The Cover:

I think this cover is gorgeous!  Everything from the blue of her dress, the richness of the luggage, the colors of the sky and the lacy parasol come together to make a very beautiful cover.

Other Notes:

~Remember, don't get upset.  It turns out well in the end :)
