One of my new favorite authors! April 3 2013
By Avid Reader - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. There was a nice plot, likeable characters (I really enjoyed the side story of Madeleine and Hank also). I didn't even realize until the previews at the end of the book that this is the author of another book I recently read and loved, so I will definitely be reading her other books in the near future. The only reason I gave it a four instead of five star review is because there were times I found Cat annoying and I also found myself wishing there was a bit more background about the friendship with Ames since she lied and said she was dating him even though it was in the past, but then later in the book said something along the lines that she had been using her friendship with him as a crutch. Also, there was an inconsistency with the ages unless I am missing something but I even reread several times to see if I missed something, where Cat tells Mack that Edie was two years older than her which would make her 30 if she were still alive, but Dora was fifteen in the story and we're told she had her after they had went to the academy. Regardless of those small things though I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it

Cat Crandall, an artist, leads an Art Trek to a dude ranch that needs the business. The son of the owner is back trying to get the ranch back into the black after his mother's second husband took off with the $$.

I liked the believable characters and the quirky ones who come on the Art Trek.

Cowboy Tough Feb. 5 2013
By K. Branfield - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Joanne Kennedy brings her readers another romance that perfectly captures not only the Western way of life, but the wild and untamed beauty of the vast Wyoming countryside in her newest release , Cowboy Tough. This beautifully written novel is sweet, sexy and full of emotions. It is also a marvelous story about the importance of family and following your dreams.

Following her sister's death, Cat Crandall is burned out in her career in advertising. Re-evaluating her priorities, she takes a job as an art instructor that she hopes will allow her to pursue her dreams. It also gives her an opportunity to spend time with her grieving niece, Dora. While the Boyd Dude Ranch is not exactly the exotic location she was hoping for, Cat is enthralled by the beauty of the land. She is also instantly attracted to the sexy bronc rider and "dude" wrangler Mack Boyd. With nothing going quite as planned, Cat's future plans are becoming more and more uncertain with every passing day.

One of the things I enjoyed most about Cowboy Tough is the fact that Cat is not a cowgirl. She is definitely out of her element on the ranch, but from an artistic viewpoint, she fully appreciates the splendor of the surrounding landscape. She slowly adapts to her rather rustic living conditions and she gradually comes to realize that she does not enjoy life in the city as much as she originally thought. It is this realization that finds her rethinking exactly what she has been searching for.

Mack Boyd is the quintessential cowboy. His good manners and love of the family ranch are deeply ingrained in him. Protective of those he loves, Mack willingly puts his rodeo career on hold to help his mother save their ranch. He too has an instant attraction to Cat, but with a failed marriage to a city slicker in his past, he has his doubts about a relationship between them.

One of the secondary story arcs involves Cat's niece Dora. Cat is determined to help Dora reach her potential as an artist despite Dora's overwhelming resistance. Dora is still deeply mourning the loss of her mother and she clings tightly to her anger and continually lashes out at Cat. Mack's experiences with his teenage daughter, Viv, prove invaluable and he does not hesitate to offer his advice to Cat. This part of the plot reveals a lot about Mack's character and gives him added depth and dimension.

Many of the subplots in Cowboy Tough involve the secondary cast of characters. They are a well-developed and eclectic group of people that I really enjoyed getting to know. There is also wonderful storyline with Mack's mom, Maddie, that is very endearing. Equally interesting is the mystery aspect of the plot. It does not overpower the novel, but it adds another layer to the complex and well-executed plot.

Cowboy Tough is another delightful and engrossing novel from Joanne Kennedy that I heartily recommend. A truly wonderful cast of characters along with an entertaining storyline make this a must read for anyone who enjoys contemporary Western romances.

I received a complimentary copy for review.
