FREE õ One Lucky Cowboy ⚼ Jane Day is on the run from the paid assassin who had been her fianc In Wichita Falls, Texas, she meets Nellie Luckadeau, a spitfire of an old lady who desperately needs someone to work on her ranch But Nellie s drop dead gorgeous grandson Lucky Slade is sure he can spot a con artist a mile away He s determined not to let some upstart like Jane fleece his grannyWhen his signature intimidation methods don t convince Jane to leave, he pours on the charm to make her spill what she s up to She s happy to play along, but she s not going to let this hot, hostile cowboy run her off his land when all she needs is a lucky break I picked up this book solely because it s by Carolyn Brown and I love her books I didn t read the blurb and had no idea what I was getting into What I got was a roller coaster ride that was totally unexpected I went into the book looking a western romance, and while I got that, I also received a very snarky, funny, romantic suspense I was on the edge of my seat, eagerly waiting to see what was going to happen next.If you read my reviews, you know that I give 5 stars quite sparingly So that I picked up this book solely because it s by

reviews, you know that I give 5 stars quite sparingly So that in itself speaks volumes on how much I enjoyed this story Jane and Slade were interesting characters apart, but together ther were just crazy mad sparks flying The way they goaded each other was fun to watch Throw in a couple old ladies and then the reason that Jane is on the run and it was a wild ride.I can t wait to revisit this family and series and have to back track to book 1 and hope that it s as good as this one Well done Ms Brown I have enjoyed this author s Lucky Penny Ranch series so I grabbed this one when I saw it I didn t realize it is a re release from 2009.This story does not flow well The writing is not cohesive, it jumps around and is missing pockets of info right from the beginning Characters are dropped in without explanation as to who they are or how they fit in the story Jane Day is a running away from less than ideal circumstances She somehow ends up getting off her bus and meeting Nellie Nellie

less than ideal circumstances She somehow ends up getting off her bus and meeting Nellie Nellie needs a driver and hires Jane, a complete unknown, for the job She takes Jane back to her ranch where her grandson, Slade, is understandably concerned However, how he expresses his unhappiness is rude, condescending and obnoxious I m assuming the banter between Slade and Jane is supposed to be funny but it was just mean, irritating, ridiculous and asinine Nellie and her sister Ellen I think are supposed to come across as full of life, entertaining old ladies I liked Nellie, but wasn t crazy about Ellen s character Ellen is made out to be a major partier who drinks too much repeatedly and gets behind the wheel to drive And the family jokes about it Nope Not ok in any way shape or form I didn t enjoy any part of what I d read to this point So, I m not going to finish it I will be looking much closer at pub dates for this author in the future and sticking with newer releases I voluntarily reviewed a copy provided by NetGalley and the publisher DNF 20%I ve read and enjoyed a few Carolyn Brown books over the last few years, but sadly this was not one of them I had no idea this was a reissue of an older book 2009 , but that wouldn t have stopped me from reading, since I ve already enjoyed another in this series Talk Cowboy to Me.No, it was the messy writing and awful characters that did that Too many POV shifts in every scene, new characters being dumped in a heap on my head without any lead up or introductions, time jumps that leav DNF 20%I ve read and enjoyed a few Carolyn

without any lead up or introductions, time jumps that leave a lot of stuff out, and that was just in the first few chapters Perhaps this all smoothed out as the book progressed, but I couldn t force myself to get that far.Slade is a massive jerk I get that he s worried for his grandmother, but wow, he s rude, and Jane isn t much better I know she s running from something awful and I should feel sympathy for her, but except for the scene with the little girl and the kittens, I found her too prickly and almost as rude as Slate Both of them need to grow up.That little kid and her father were farinteresting, and I did like Granny Nellie and her sister Ellen too, they were fun What was less fun was the way everyone found Ellen s drink driving habits so hilarious Sorry, but I just can t find that kind of thing funny In all, I guess this book just wasn t for me ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley One Lucky Cowboy Lucky Carolyn Brown A woman on the run A granny with a plan and a
