Years ago, he shattered her heart. Now she must trust him with her life.
As the only girl in her family, and with four older brothers, Ivy McQuaid can rope and ride with the roughest of ranchers. She’s ready to have what she’s always longed for–a home of her own. She’s set her heart on a parcel of land south of Fairplay and is saving for it with her winnings from the cowhand competitions she sneaks into–but her dream is put in jeopardy when the man she once loved reappears in her life.
After two years away, Jericho Bliss is back in South Park as an undercover Pinkerton agent searching for a war criminal. He has no intention of involving a woman in the dangerous life he leads, but one look at Ivy is all it takes for him to question the path he’s set out for himself.
Even though Jericho tries to resist his longtime attraction to the beautiful and vivacious Ivy, he finds himself falling hard and fast for her. In the process, his worst fear comes true–he puts her smack-dab in the middle of danger. With Ivy’s life in the balance, will Jericho give her up once again, or will he find a way back to her, this time forever?
This was just as good as the others! I have loved the past books in this series, so I had high hopes for this one and it did not disappoint. Falling for the Cowgirl is the fourth book in Jody Hedlund’s Colorado Cowboys series. We finally get to read about Ivy and see her get her happy ending, and let me just say it was so good!
Ivy was definitely a fun character to read about, and she was so feisty and full of life. However, she was still trying to find herself and figure out what she wanted to do. I loved how independent Ivy was but also how she tried to trust her brothers. Ivy was so sweet and her interactions with her brothers were cute but I also loved how she didn’t let them push her around. Ivy was strong but Jericho had a way of reaching past her walls. Jericho truly saw Ivy and loved her even though she was more “wild” and “adventurous.”
Jericho was complicated but I loved him. He cared for Ivy and her family, but he also tried to stay away because he wanted to protect her. He had a dangerous job and his past kept him wary of letting people in.
Ivy and Jericho were the perfect match and I loved reading about their interactions. They were both so fiery and full of life. Their romance was sweet and it was fun to read about their reconnecting. They had known each other for a long time, but they left on a bad note when Jericho left with Dylan. Ivy and Jericho had to learn how to communicate with each other and how to help each other become better people.
The story line was very interesting and I was so invested in this book. I wanted to know how Ivy and Jericho would end up together. I also love how Hedlund is able to weave in faith so seamlessly into her books. Ahh, this book was just amazing! I loved the characters and I am super excited for Dylan’s book!! Judd was also a wonderful character and I loved his parts in this book.
Falling for the Cowgirl is an amazing book and I would totally recommend it! I have loved all of Hedlund’s books and this one was no different. However I do think that this one is better enjoyed as part of the series. Falling for the Cowgirl is a clean Christian historical romance.
