ABOUT THE BOOK
Reporter Andrew Stone has been fearless since the day his wife was shot and killed three years ago. He has one mission─use hid Texas Ranger upbringing to find her murderer and clear his own name of any involvement. When he sees a beautiful brunette in the hands of a pistol-welding maniac, he’s forced to abandon his covert surveillance and go to the rescue. The danger surrounding Andrew doesn’t scare him at all, but the awakening of his dormant heart terrifies him.
When painful pasts collide, the explosion is deafening. Can Andrew and Elyse pick up the pieces and go forward together? Or will they forever live with haunting memories, unable to forgive, unable to love?

I liked this book. I haven't read the others in this series, but I appreciate the adoption theme that Ms Lynxwiler has incorporated into Cowgirl at Heart. It's nice to read about people and animals being rescued because Jesus motivates his people to love and care for one another. Cowgirl at Heart is a story of love and trust. The once lost Elyse finds love and acceptance in her adopted family who encourage her to overcome her shyness and reach higher professionally and relationally.
I think Elsa will like this one. It's young and fresh.
