#83: A Cowboy To Come Home To by Donna Alward

Friendship?

Melissa Stone has done a fine job of avoiding her former best friend Cooper Ford. She was devastated when she discovered her husband was cheating on her, and felt doubly betrayed that Cooper had known all along.…

Forgiveness…

But she can't ignore him forever—especially now that they're working together on a charity project! And as she and Cooper get closer again, she confides in him her plans to start a family—alone.

Fatherhood!

Cooper wants to be there for her this time—but would he really consider being the father of her baby…?

While bestselling author Donna Alward was busy studying Austen, Eliot and Shakespeare, she was also losing herself in the breathtaking stories created by romance novelists like LaVyrle Spencer, Judith McNaught, and Nora Roberts. Several years after completing her degree she decided to write a romance of her own and it was true love! Five years and ten manuscripts later she sold her first book and launched a new career. While her heartwarming stories of love, hope, and homecoming have been translated into several languages, hit bestseller lists and won awards, her very favorite thing is when she hears from happy readers!

Donna lives on Canada's east coast with her family which includes a husband, a couple of kids, a senior dog and two crazy cats. When she's not writing she enjoys reading (of course!), knitting, gardening, cooking...and is a Masterpiece Theater addict. You can visit her on the web at www.DonnaAlward.com


REVIEW:
So lovely!
This is part of a series that I haven't heard of before this book, but it didn't matter one bit when reading. It felt fresh and new, like the start of a series or a stand alone book.
It was like watching the perfect love story unfold. These two, Coop and Mel, are the perfect match, even if it takes them too long to figure it out. They finally come together and when they did I actually got a tear in my eye. It was that beautiful. 
It was nice to have a Canadian setting too, which surprised me. Not a lot of romance books I read have a good ole north setting, so when I saw Edmonton I was wowed. 
I really love this Cadence Creek Cowboys series. I am definitely going to check out more from that series, and from this author too. Her books have an ease that has you easily reading the book in a couple of hours.
This was exactly what I needed at the right time.
Clean romance fans, this is right up your alley so get a copy today!

4/5

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
