A fun read. Delightful, engaging, charming, and yes, funny. Humor in the characters, especially Miss Eugenia Cooper, humor in the events, as she dreams of and heads on an adventure in the west. I thoroughly enjoyed this romp of a read. If you loved Kathy Marie Hake, give yourself a treat with The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper. Lauraine Snelling, author of the Red River Series, Daughters of Blessing series, and One Perfect Day
Take one spirited young woman seeking adventurewith a dime novel heroine as her role modeland add a lonely man determined not to lose his heart again. Stir in the excitement of an Old West setting, and you have a recipe for success. The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper is an absolute delight! Kathleen YBarbos writing sparkles like the clear, blue Colorado skies. Carol Cox, author of A Bride So Fair and A Test of Faith
Eugenia Flora Cooper has her Mae Winslow, but Kathleen YBarbo is my Woman of the West. In The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper, Kathleen takes you by the hand on the first page and draws you into a chase every bit as merry as any Mae Winslow adventure story. Before you realize its happening, you find yourself in places youre reluctant to leave, among characters so genuine they only lack flesh to be real. Marcia Gruver, author of the Texas Fortunes series
The gap between fiction and reality turn out to be much smaller than Eugenia Cooper realizes when she makes a last minute, ill-planned decision to hop a train to Denver in 1880. With excitement, romance, and humor, Kathleen YBarbo spins a tale that captures your mind. The authors enthusiasm for writing spills out of every scene, creating, as it should, enthusiastic readers. Stephen Bly, award-winning western author of over 100 books, including One Step Over the Border, Paperback Writer, and Wish Id Known You Tears Ago

Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5October 14, 2009Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: femaleIn 1880 America, socialite Eugenia Coopers life is all mapped out, including a marriage to rich banker Chandler Dodd. But this lover or western dime novels longs for an adventure of her own. When the opportunity arises, she jumps a train to Denver, Colorado to pose as a governess for ten-year-old Charlotte Beck. What she discovers in Denver, however, can hardly be called a girl. The grubby thing not only wears britches and refuses to bathe, she stole Eugenias pocketbook before Eugenia even left the train station.Then she meets a handsome man at the local store and wonders if this western adventure wont have a little romance. What she didnt expect was that she would be thrust into a scandal that would not only ruin her good name, but that of Charlottes father, Daniel Beck. Whats a girl to do?Eugenia reminds me of a flirty Anne of Green Gables. She never intends to get herself into such mischief, but time after time, catastrophe lay in her wake. I couldnt help but like her naivet and root that everything would work out perfectly for her in the end. I didnt much enjoy the excerpts from the Mae Winslow dime novels that started each chapter and stopped reading them about halfway through. I was just so caught up in Eugenias story that I didnt care a bit about ol Mae Winslow and her horse Lucky. Still, this is wild west romance fun, so if you like that sort of novel, you must read this one. Fun, fun, fun.
Lauryn Abbott4 Stars Out Of 5August 27, 2009Lauryn AbbottI so enjoyed this book! "The Confidential Live of Eugenia Cooper" by Kathleen Y'Barbo was light, fun, romantic and just thoroughly entertaining! It is a fast-paced story filled with adventure, drama, and humor. Gennie seeks adventure and gets more than she bargained for when she leaves her genteel, upper-class New York home to experience the Wild West for a brief stay in Denver. Along the way she learns some valuable lessons about life, love and perceptions. This book simply made me smile!
Christy Lockstein5 Stars Out Of 5August 25, 2009Christy LocksteinThe Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper by Kathleen Y'Barbo is the most fun I've had reading a romance novel in a long time! Eugenia "Gennie" Cooper wants just a little adventure in her life before getting married to her father's choice, so when the opportunity for a trip to Denver posing as a governess arrives, she can't help but take it. Working in the Beck household is a little more adventure than she had bargained for however. Charlotte, her ten year old charge, has been allowed to run wild for five years without a mother's influence. I stayed up until 3 am finishing this book, because I just couldn't put it down! Every time I thought I'd come to a place I could put it aside until morning Y'Barbo threw another monkey wrench into the works! This refreshing novel kept the best of romantic cliches and turned the rest on their head. I loved it!
