THE COWBOY MEETS HIS MATCH is the fourth book in THE WYOMING COWBOY series. It was nice to be back with some of the characters we’ve met before in the small town of Painted Barrel, Wyoming.
When Becca and Hank’s paths cross in the unlikeliest of places—her salon—things get interesting fast. He’s a mountain man from Alaska, the opposite of the type she’s normally attracted to, and is only in Wyoming for a short time with his two brothers to help out on their uncle’s ranch. Hank is a single father to an adorable four-year-old, who, along with Hank’s brothers, adds some levity to the story.
Becca is gossiped about by the townspeople since her loser ex-boyfriend got cold feet right before the wedding. She gave up ten years of her life for him, and he keeps turning up like a bad penny, even two years later. When Becca decides to help at Hank’s uncle’s ranch by providing doughnuts each morning, doing some laundry, and cleaning and cooking meals, she starts to get under Hank’s skin. There’s a clear attraction between them. Hank isn’t the most talkative of sorts, but he comes out of his shell around Becca.
The story has several plots going on at once, but they’re handled well and add to the story. The author nicely describes the town and wilderness of Wyoming and Alaska. Filled with romance, miscommunication, ranch life, and family, THE COWBOY MEETS HIS MATCH hits all the right notes. An excerpt in the back of the book gives a peek at Ms. Clare’s next novel, HER CHRISTMAS COWBOY, and I can’t wait to read it.
I enjoy reading books by Ms. Clare, whether centered around cowboys or billionaires. She has fast become one of the authors whose books I look for especially.
