I received a copy of this book as a eARC through Netgalley for honest opinion and review.
This is another book i picked up through Netgalley by a author I had never read before. I do love my cowboy books so i decided to try Chantilly's Cowboy.
June 6th 2011
All Chantilly McDougal wants is to run her daddy’s ranch. The only one of five sisters content to stay on the McDougal spread, Chantilly loves the land and knows the workings of the ranch better than anyone. So when Stuart McDougal hires Jack Grady as his new foreman without even consulting her, Chantilly is furious. She doesn’t need the help of any cowboy, no matter what feelings the man arouses in her!
Jack Grady can understand Tilly’s frustrations over working with him, but he needs the job to put his nephew through law school. Besides, he’s made a promise to Stuart, and everyone knows a cowboy never goes back on his word. But when he finds himself falling for the boss’s daughter, Jack is torn between being honest with Tilly, and keeping her father’s secret
This book is actually the first in a new series. I did a little investigating on her website and well I asked her. Twitter is a wonderful place for instant contact and conversation when needed. The series is called Sisters of McDougal Ranch. First i have to tell you the hero in this book Jack is just wonderful. My favorite character. He had a not so good upbringing and has been raising his brothers son for him since the boys was 12. He's in college now and is working to get him through that. He comes to the McDougal ranch when the owner Stuart hires him on as the new manager, but he has a ulterior motive as well. Chantilly ( there are 5 girls all named after different kinds of lace) is really ticked at first but Jack well you can't stay mad at Jack. You get to meet all the McDougal sisters in this book, which is really fun. They are all different and one is a exact twin of Chantilly. This was a really quick and fun read for the most part but there is some sad stuff in the last quarter of the book when Stuart secret is revealed. You'll have to read it to find out what it is but i did tear up a little for a bit. There is of course a happy ending for Jack and Chantilly. The more i read this book the more i liked what i read and was hoping it was a series. I was glad i found out it was the first book too because i like reading a series from the beginning. This is your chance to start at the beginning too if you want to give this book a shot. You can find out more about this book by going to Debra Kayn's website by clicking here here www.debrakayn.com . You can also read a excerpt for this book there as well. I give Chantilly's Cowboy 5 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick Stars. If you love cowboy books this ones for you.
