When Lady Sydney poses as a boy to try to gain her uncle's acceptance on his Texas ranch, she never expected her deceit to be so difficult to maintain...
From the beginning, this novel captured my attention with the unusual plot and humorous dialogue. I am not sure how almost everyone could have taken Sydney for a boy, but the story was still very enjoyable. The clear presentation of salvation was excellent, and the characters were likable.
I enjoyed a few aspects of this book and disliked several others. The humor the book attempted was well done. Slap-stick type humor was done fairly well, and the dialogue had moments where it really was extremely witty. There were times, however, where the humor felt forced and over the top, primarily in overly witty dialogue that felt unnatural.
The romance, while very cute at parts, came across as uneven to me. Cute and plausible moments followed by rushes of feeling that didn't seem to follow the pace for growth that was previously set. Secondary characters also weren't fleshed out very well, and the salvation acceptance near the end seemed rushed and unnaturally timed/forced.
While there were individual scenes that interested me, I would not pick up the book in order to re-read.
