Publisher's Description

Anything he can do, I can do better. At least that was what Cassie Bucknell thought before she pinned on Ben Wilder’s badge and took to patrolling the streets of Cactus Creek, Texas. Cassie has been in love with Ben since primer school, but Ben treats her like a little sister. When they are picked to swap jobs for a month as part of the annual Cactus Creek Challenge in their Texas hometown, the schoolhouse is thrown into an uproar, the jail becomes a temporary bank vault, and Cassie and Ben square off in a battle of wills that becomes a battle for their hearts.

Editorial Reviews

"Vetsch brings Cactus Creek—and romance!—to life in Ben and Cassie's beautifully executed love story. Her warm words made me smell bread baking and romance brewing. . .two heady effects that worked perfectly together. Kudos, Erica!" 
Bestselling, multi-published author, Ruth Logan Herne

"A story full of adventure and laughter with not one, but two, romances. The characters are sharply drawn. Ms. Vetsch has the delightful ability to turn a phrase in a way that brought a smile of pleasure to my lips. An enjoyable read."

Linda Ford, author

". . .I love how Erica Vetsch sprinkles fresh language (biscuits as hard as doorknobs) and characters (every single one is unique) into an ageless story of change, love, and restoration. You'll find yourself challenged in Cactus Creek, too. I loved this book!" 

Jane Kirkpatrick, bestselling author of A Light in the Wilderness

"Two couples + too many chuckles and chortles to count = a doubly delightful read. Those who pick up Erica Vetsch's fun-filled story will be roped in from the start and will flip pages faster than a chuck wagon cook does flapjacks, as they race to find out how her captivating characters deal with the many challenges that come their way. Another winner from a talented storyteller!"
Keli Gwyn, author of Family of Her Dreams

"The Cactus Creek Challenge is a delightful read. The characters stole my heart as they stepped up to the challenge of walking a mile in another’s shoes, so to speak. By trading professions for a month, the characters creatively carried out tasks outside their own comfort and talent. Ms. Vetsch skillfully weaves multiple sub-plots together to create a novel true to the historical West sprinkled with humor and wit and a good dose of sigh-worthy love."

Audra Harders, author of Rough Road Home

Blending laugh-out-loud humor into a story of life on the Texas frontier is a difficult job, but Vetsch manages to do it with plenty of faith and panache in this historical romance set in Cactus Creek, Tex., in 1888.

Laugh-out-loud romance about the battle of the sexes, with a twist. The saying "Anything he can do, I can do better" is tested in a new way, and the results will surprise you. Vetsch has brought new life to a sometimes overused plot and has made it fresh and funny.

Vetsch devises a fresh plot filled with delightful hijinks, humor, and romance in a tale of 1880s Texas. The appealing cast includes interesting secondary characters and a host of schoolchildren that will make fans of historical novels wish they lived in Cactus Creek.
