Product Description

April McBride has suffered a broken engagement once before and fully intends to guard her heart when she travels to Lewistown, Montana, to attend her brother's wedding. One look around the small mining town convinces April that this won't be difficult--just a bunch of dusty shops, bad service, and ill-bred cowboys. But a run-in with a horse trainer named Wes Owen opens up vast possibilities for frustration, embarrassment, friendship, and . . . love? Can April and Wes see past their differences in order to envision a future together?

    I really wanted to like this book since I liked the previous book in this series. However, I didn't like the first book in the series either. The heroine ruined this story for me. She was spoiled and snobblish from the beginning of the book to the end. I can't see her future with the hero as being a happy one. I was really looking forward to Wes's story and wanted him to have a happy ending. Sadly, I don't think he got it with April. I got the impression that even at the end, April thought that she was above Wes. He needed someone that would see him for the man he was, not who they wished he was. I still plan to read more from this author and hope that her books get better.

Can April and Wes move past their indifference's for each other in order for them to have a future together or are they both destined to grow old as spinster and spinstess ? .

    Although this is book three in the Heart of the West series, "A Love of Her Own" can be read as a stand alone without taking anything from the story-line. "A Love of Her Own" is an adventurous, humor-filled ride through love in 1896 Montana. April McBride is the daughter of a rich Colorado rancher and as such, is used to having things her way with people waiting on her every whim. Although she is spoiled, April has a good heart, which is still recovering from a broken engagement. While her parents are abroad celebrating their anniversary, she receives word that her brother, Josh, is getting married. April has only a few days to make the trip from Steamboat Springs, CO to Lewistown, MT to make it to her brother's wedding. The trip begins as a train ride and ends with April dashing into the church as the wedding has started inappropriately dressed for a wedding. April has only a short time to visit with her brother before he and his new bride, Juliana, leave on their honeymoon. It is during this time that Josh introduces April to his good friend, Wes Owen, a horse trainer, who April met briefly before running into the church.What happens during the time April waits for Josh & Juliana to return to their ranch is a story filled with wonderful characters that help April change from the self-centered girl that arrives in Lewistown to a woman with a warm, caring heart, strength of character, a good friend, trustful, and loving. Wes undergoes some character growth as his love for April blooms and he learns to handle this head-strong woman. The story is not without a few surprises along the way that keep the reader turning the pages to find out what will happen next. Woven through out the story is the gentle reminder of how God works in people's lives when they let Him guide their steps.

    Sweet, touching, engaging, and heartwarming are all great words to describe this book. April is a character that I really grew fond of, and I love the person she changed into as the story progressed. I can't wait to read more from this great new author!
