Lori5 Stars Out Of 5the heart of a cowboyMarch 19, 2022LoriQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 55 stars for a well written book that I very much enjoyed!
Jody is such an excellent storyteller and I've been a fan of hers since her very first book.
I learned many things that I never heard of.
Such wonderful characters with a cool storyline that grabs your attention from the beginning.
I didn't want to put this book down at all!
This book kept my attention.
I'm loving this series very much.
Wagon trains, botanical science and adventures all wrapped into one? What's not to love about this wonderful book!
The heroine of this story is pretty cool herself.
Everyone has dreams they on what they want to be.
But it has to be God's timing not hers.
I enjoyed rooting for her and Flynn.
I loved seeing them working out their problems along with whatever else they came across.
The cover of this book simply draws me into it and in my opinion it matches the story within.
I give this novel 5 stars. Wish I could give it more!
My thanks for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
Irishniff4 Stars Out Of 5Adventure Awaits!February 24, 2022IrishniffQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Audiobook: Once again, Susan Hanfield has done a great job narrating book 2 of Jody Hedlund's Colorado Cowboy series. The narrator was easy to listen to and did well with distinguishing character voices. Her voice reflected the suspense and action of this adventurous story. Hedlund has written a romantic story full of lessons regarding fear, faith and family that you don't want to miss.
ButterflyreviewAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5The Heart of a CowboyJanuary 17, 2022ButterflyreviewAge: 55-65Gender: femaleBrilliant scientist Linnea Newberry is on the adventure of a lifetime, traveling the Santa Fe Trail with her grandfather, Dr. Howell, on a botanical expedition to Colorado Territory. She longs to be valued for her contributions and not seen as a helpless liability. But at every calamity she faces, her grandfather threatens to send her home.
After watching his ma suffer and die in childbirth, Flynn McQuaid has sworn off women and marriage forever. Headed west to start a new life, he has his hands full not only taking care of his younger siblings but also delivering cattle to his older brother. He doesn't need more complications.
When Flynn rescues Linnea from drowning during a river crossing, Dr. Howell promptly
hires Flynn--unbeknownst to Linnea--to act as her bodyguard for the rest of the trip. As
Flynn fights against the many dangers of the trail, he soon finds himself in the greatest danger of. Falling for a woman he's determined not to love.
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fabulous!January 6, 2022KavRCanadaGender: femaleReading Heart of a Cowboy gave me Little House on the Prairie vibes only for grown ups. And mashed in with an old-timie Western like Rawhide. :-) And I like how some of the emphasis is on what the women endured making that kind of cross country wilderness trek. Including the limitations placed on them by men who thought they knew better which makes for so many intriguing plot points!
Loved Linnea and her earnest scientific mind that sometimes leaves her in calamitous situations which just begs for a strapping hero rescue a time or two.. :-) In fact, Flynn and Linnea's meet-cute is an extremely memorable one. Sigh, yes, I know I just mentioned the exasperating limitations men put on women in this era but, really, for all Linnea's intelligence and gumption, she still needs rescuing in this unfamiliar territory and Flynn is just the man for the job. Which made me one happy reader.
Tremendous character growth stems from some conflicted back stories. Both Flynn and Linnea harbour secrets and hurts that they aren't comfortable voicing which, naturally, puts a damper on romance...if only they weren't so drawn to one another! Honestly, this story took quite a few unexpected turns that kept me in a cattywampus state right to the very end!
Action, adventure, danger -- everything you'd expect to find in a classic Western romance crafted in Jody Hedlund's uniquely captivating style.
This is the second book in the author's Colorado Cowboys series and, while it can be read as a standalone, the McQuaid family is worth getting to know right from the start so do yourself a favour and hunt down a copy of A Cowboy for Keeps as well.
