No wedding is too much for the little town of Ido, Texas to handle…or is it?
Having successfully established themselves as a destination for weddings, the town of Ido is ready to kick it up another notch. Zina Baxter has stood on the sidelines during most of the matrimonial mayhem. But when a disaster at the pit bull rescue has her relocating the pups to share space with a winter wonderland scene, she finds herself smack dab in the middle of planning the craziest wedding yet.
Alex Sanders ran as far and fast as he could from his hometown—all the way to Antarctica. But a job opportunity as the penguin handler for an over-the-top wedding entices him back. Being home means he can finally help his overwhelmed sister wrangle their unruly grandpa—at least until the next opportunity comes around and he can hit the road running again. The last thing he expects to find in Texas is a shot at love… Once Alex crashes into Zina’s life—literally—there’s no denying their chemistry. But are their feelings for each other enough to keep Alex in Texas for good, or will he follow the march of the penguins back to the South Pole?
Her Kind of Cowboy combines lots of things I love: dogs, penguins, small towns. Alex and Zina are sweet! Alex sort of ran from his tiny hometown and has been jet setting and doing all kinds of cool, yet random, things. He isn’t expecting his trip home to be anything more than a brief stay.
Zina loves her dog rescue and enjoys small town life in Ido, Texas. Her BFF is the mayor and has some interesting ideas about how to bring more people to town (crazy weddings)! Zina is content in her life, so on the surface, she and Alex seem like opposites. However, their deeper emotions are much more similar. Alex has to confront his feelings and decide if he wants to remain a wanderer of the world or if he has a reason to put down roots.
Her Kind of Cowboy has humor and heart. I think readers will find comfort in this atypical town and some of its more interesting inhabitants! If you want a lighter read with low angst, this is a perfect pick.
