A Cowboy For Keeps By Jody Hedlund from Bethany House. Greta Nilsson’s trip west to save her ailing little sister, Astrid, could not have gone more wrong. First, bandits hold up her stagecoach, stealing all her money. Then, upon arriving to Fairplay, Colorado, she learns the man she was betrothed to as a mail order bride had died. Homeless, penniless, and jobless, Greta and her sister are worse off than when they started.
Wyatt McQuaid is struggling to get his new ranch up and running and is in town to purchase cattle when the mayor proposes the most unlikely of bargains. They all invest in a herd of cattle for Wyatt’s ranch if Wyatt agrees to help the town become more respectable by Marion and starting a family with Greta. But when old insecurities and surprising revelations arise, can a union born out of desperation survive?
My Opinion: This was a touching story as Greta and Wyatt were strangers but has to live together and learn about one another along with growing to love each other.
