Series: Amish of Apple Grove
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?
Miranda4 Stars Out Of 5Reads just fine as a stand aloneAugust 3, 2016MirandaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I haven't read the other books, but found this book rather good,it can certainly be read as a stand alone book. The characters in the book all seemed like they were real people. This book touches on alcoholism, death, people not being as kind as they could be and others who are downright mean, infertility and even rules over helping someone in trouble. Spoilers below alert.
I felt the book wrapped up quicker than I was ready for, Jesse's initial motivation to become Amish was for a woman, rather than for any real conviction that it was the life for him. I would have liked seeing a little more into the Bishop's character and what he felt about Katie's marriage and pregnancy, and how he felt about many of the Amish moving away. I enjoyed the book but likely wont hunt up the others in the series.

It takes up the story of Jesse, the cheeky cowboy we met in the first book. We follow as his character moves from flighty, irresponsible drunkenness to develop a strength and depth we can truly admire. Along the way, we learn about grief, alcoholism, and the history of cattle barons and antisepsis in medicine. The action starts early in the book and keeps you turning pages till the very end. Although it could stand alone, I'm so glad I read it to end the series - so satisfying. I cant recommend it enough!
