The Trouble With Cowboys by Denise Hunter

After watching a series of cowboys walk out of their mothers life both Annie and Sierra are determined to never marry a cowboy. Annie is especially determined to stay away from her neighbor Dylan. She sees him as a man who will flirt with any woman he encounters. She is determined not to be one of his conquests. Annie sees John the banker as safe and reliable. The only problem is he doesn't make her heart race when he kisses her. Dylan has had his heart broken once before. He has closed off his heart to love. What he didn't count on was how Annie would make him feel.

When Dylan's horse starts to go blind Dylan requests Annie's help in training the horse to adapt to his blindness. In return for her services she requests that Dylan help her with her new advice column "Ask Annie." Thinking that Dylan has much  more experience in the love category than she does, Annie believes he can offer better advice than she could. The only problem is they rarely agree on a course of action for the lovelorn!

I enjoyed The Trouble with Cowboys. There was just the right amount of romance and faith mixed together to make the story interesting. I felt for Annie as things started to spiral out of her control. When she had to learn to give her sister to God's care instead of trusting in herself, I think that all parents could relate with that as we have watched our children grow up and experience life lessons that we would prefer to shield them from. Cowboy romances are hard to resist, throw in a character like Dylan and you won't want to put the book down until the very end.
