Publisher's Description

A Cowboy at Heart, an engaging Amish-meets-Wild West adventure from bestselling authors Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith, weaves a clever and romantic tale of new starts and second chances.

1886--Jesse Montgomery is beginning to feel restless. Though he's grateful to his friends Colin and Emma for helping him get on his feet again after a few bad choices and some hard living, surely the Lord doesn't want him to stay in Apple Grove forever. Doesn't the Almighty have plans for this reformed rowdy cowboy to build a life of his own?

When an unscrupulous cattle baron tries to steal Amish land, Jesse intervenes and is wounded. Lovely Katie Miller, the young healer in the district, attends to him while trying to guard her heart. This sweet Amish widow cannot risk falling in love with an Englisch cowboy, charming though he may be. And yet--she believes God has a life for her too that is more than what she can presently see. Could there be a future with Jesse only He could bring about?

Editorial Reviews

"I would definitely recommend this book, and also the two previous books in this series. These two authors work very well together in creating stories that are pleasant to read and keep me coming back for more."
--Patty LeBlanc, pattyleblanc.wordpress.com

"This is a very satisfying conclusion to the Amish of Apple Grove series. Once again, the characters were interesting, believable, and endearing. The plot flowed smoothly and the conflict resolution was clever.  Though I enjoyed all three books, this one was my favorite because all the loose ends were neatly and happily tied up. Overall a lovely story."
--Cayenne DaBell

    Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith in their new book, "A Cowboy At Heart" Book Three in The Amish Of Apple Grove series published by Harvest House Publishers takes us into the lives of Katie Miller and Jesse Montgomery.

    From the Back Cover: She loves me... she loves me not... she loves me

    Kansas, 1886-Jesse Montgomery is beginning to feel restless. He's been off the Chisholm Trail and on a family farm for a year now. Though he is grateful to Luke and Emma for helping him get on his feet again after a few bad choices and some hard living, surely the Lord doesn't want him to stay in Apple Grove forever. Doesn't the Almighty have plans for this reformed rowdy cowboy to build a life of his own?

    When an unscrupulous cattle baron tries to steal Amish land, Jesse intervenes and is wounded. Lovely Katie Miller, the young healer in the district, attends to him while trying to guard her heart. This sweet Amish widow cannot risk falling in love again-especially with an Englisch cowboy, charming though he may be. And yet-she believes God has a life for her too that is more than what she can presently see. Could God possibly have a plan for both of them far beyond what they can see?

    This is the third and last book in this series, which I am sorry to see come to an end, and this time the focus is Jesse Montgomery. You can read this volume as a stand alone with no problem but it is a lot more fun when you know the character's growth from the first two books. If this was a movie it would be the kind that John Wayne made during his middle period and he would be Jesse. There is a cattle rancher trying to drive off the Amish farmers and Jesse stands up to him almost getting killed in the process. Katie tends to him and the sparks fly but each is wounded and needs to heal before their romance can actually work. In the meantime the battle is on for the safety of Apple Grove. "A Cowboy At Heart" is a romance but it is much, much more. Ms. Copeland and Smith explore the themes of Grief over the loss of a spouse and Standing your spiritual ground when it seems that all is lost. I enjoyed this book a lot and am looking forward to the next series from this talented duo.

    "A very satisfying conclusion to the Amish of Apple Grove series. Once again, the characters were interesting, believable, and endearing. The plot flowed smoothly and the conflict resolution was clever. Though I enjoyed all three books, this one was my favorite because all the loose ends were neatly and happily tied up. Bishop Miller was a tragic figure, but not beyond hope, and I enjoyed watching Jesse find peace. Katie's bareness tugged at my heart and I admired her courage in the face of her trials. To be a healer when your own heart is broken is one of the secrets of life. Lovely story."

    Another good book by dual authors. Lori & Virginia seems to flow together as God writes the book.

    I could so see Ranchers doing to the Amish like Mr. Littlefield did to Jonas. But Jonas being so forgiving is a lesson for us all. Yet Jonas had to work to fight his anger and remain calm.

    I've really never thought about Amish being around in the 1800s.

    Having read the story of Jesse before on cattle drives with Luke, it is refreshing to read of his struggles with whiskey and faith. I lived with a guy in my house growing up who fought both.

    God's plans for Jesse, Jonas, Amos and Katie are revealed. A new Amish Community if formed because God leads the Amish same as anyone else.

    My 12 year old granddaughter was reading the title yesterday and asking questions about the book.

    Jesse's recovery from a bullet wound and a bishop who is hard to deal with were interesting to read.

    The whole story is about forgiveness when wronged. Something that isn't that easy believe me.

    A Cowboy at Heart is the third in the Amish of Apple Grove series, also known as Amish-meets-Wild West adventures. The first book, The Heart's Frontier, is about how a group of cowboys meet the Switzer family (Amish). One of the Switzer girls marries a cowboy. In the second installment, A Plain and Simple Heart, another Switzer daughter seeks out a cowboy she had a crush on as a girl. A trip to jail and other humorous happenings land her in love with the sheriff.

    From the back cover: 1886—Jesse Montgomery is beginning to feel restless. Though he's grateful to his friends Colin and Emma for helping him get on his feet again after a few bad choices and some hard living, surely the Lord doesn't want him to stay in Apple Grove forever. Doesn't the Almighty have plans for this reformed rowdy cowboy to build a life of his own?

    When an unscrupulous cattle baron tries to steal Amish land, Jesse intervenes and is wounded. Lovely Katie Miller, the young healer in the district, attends to him while trying to guard her heart. This sweet Amish widow cannot risk falling in love with an Englisch cowboy, charming though he may be. And yet—she believes God has a life for her too that is more than what she can presently see. Could there be a future with Jesse only He could bring about?

    My review: This third installment is the best, I think. Without giving away the story, I will just say that none of the Amish characters chooses to leave the sect. In most Amish fiction, at least one of the characters doubts his or her faith, and often they ultimately leave the Amish life. This story is as much about the cowboy's search for faith as it is about the Amish. There's drama, humor, and danger---all the elements of an entertaining story. In addition, you get an education about Amish attitudes about achieving peace without violence.

    I highly recommend A Cowboy at Heart. You can start with this story and work backwards to the others without losing any of the value of the story.
