Title: The Cowboy’s Healing Ways
Author: Brenda Minton
Publisher: Love Inspired (January 22, 2013)
Pages: 224

I can’t help it, every time I spot a BRENDA MINTON book at the store I get excited. If I’m currently reading a book, I have to fight not to stop reading that one, and read MS MINTON’S instead.

One thing I can be sure of when I open up to the first page of a BRENDA MINTON book, I’m going to be swept away. Swept away in an amazing story with characters that I will fall in love with and wish I could walk into their world.

Laura White is down on her luck when she’s driven off the road by a sweet, elderly woman. When her handsome grandson comes to the rescue, Laura doesn’t trust him as much as he is leery of her. He may be a doctor, but the caring man has the potential to break her heart. Something she’s experienced one too many times. 

Jesse Cooper isn’t happy that his grandmother is so willing to take in a stranger. One that seems to be hiding something. In time he discovers not only is Laura to be trusted, she just may be the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with.

I feel like a broken record when reviewing a BRENDA MINTON book. How many ways can I say that I love her writing and the stories she gifts her readers with. Never tired of her novels, as I finish one, I wait with baited breath for the next.

I love Jesse Cooper, just as I have loved the rest of the Cooper men. Sweet and caring come to mind when I think of his character. Laura’s story is refreshingly unique. An ending can make or break a story. THE COWBOY’S HEALING WAYS has one of the sweetest and endearing endings I’ve read.

Bring on another, I’m ready!

Kym, I couldn't figure out how to leave you a message, so I'm posting here. I commented after you, but wasn't sure you would see it. I just wanted to thank you for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment about the photos. Your description..."visual person" and "sentimental romantic" fit me me also.

I just started a new feature and would love to know what you think, as I'm very new at this whole blogging thing. I've long been a fan of humorist Erma Bombeck and want to read her books again, so I decided to highlight some of her writing in a "Mondays with Erma" post each week.

I also saw that you go to Willow Creek. Is that where Bill Hybels preaches?

I'd love to check it out.

Yes, I've been attending Willow S Barrington for 23 years, and yes, Bill Hybels is the pastor.
