Once Upon a Cowboy by Pamela Tracy
I really enjoyed this Love Inspired book. Pamela Tracy has a real talent for characterization. I felt connected to Joel and Beth through out the story. The small town with the typical 'everyone knows your business' atmosphere was spot on. Living in a small town myself, I know it has its pros and cons. The author did a wonderful job of showing us the growth of her characters relationship with God, the community and each other. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys romance with suspense and mystery.
From the back of the book:
A bull-riding injury has sent Joel McCreedy crashing—literally—into his tiny Iowa hometown. But the last thing the prodigal son wants is to stay. On top of a bruised head and ego, he has relationships to mend and a reputation to clear. And then there's lovely Beth Armstrong, his nephews' teacher, who's willing to give them all lessons in family and forgiveness. But Joel isn't the dutiful "family first" man Beth deserves. Or is he? Suddenly, instead of wrangling bulls he's helping with homework. And instead of craving his next win, he's determined to be Beth's once-in-a-lifetime love
