Title: YUKON COWBOY
Author: Debra Clopton
Publisher: Love Inspired
Genre: Inspirational/contemporary romance
Bethany Marlow moves back to her hometown of Treasure Creek to open a wedding planning shop. She’s tired of life in the big California city she moved to. While she’s waiting for her office furniture to arrive, she agrees to help out her former boss by helping to lead a wilderness tour. The family has a young boy, and they want a woman guide to help out.
But Bethany’s former boss didn’t tell the whole story. She didn’t tell Bethany that she was setting her up with her ex-fiancé, Nate McMann. Nate is equally horrified to find out about Bethany, and thrown into a tailspin. After all, he’s hiding a secret now, and has his own agenda, and neither of them involves Bethany.
As Bethany and Nate go on the trail, they find themselves questioning everything they thought was true. But will they be able to work out their relationship on the trail to find love?
YUKON COWBOY is the fourth book in Love Inspired’s Alaskan Bride Rush series, where women flock to a dying Alaskan town to find grooms. But this story easily stands alone. I didn’t read the other books in the series and had no problems keeping up.
Bethany is a sweet heroine, wanting to return home but unsure after having her heart broken years earlier. Nate is a hurting hero, still in love with Bethany, but due to circumstances, unable to allow himself to have a relationship with her. I hoped that they would be able to work out their differences. This book doesn't have the life of Ms. Clopton's Texas romances, but it is still a okay read. If you are looking for a romance, then don’t miss YUKON COWBOY. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $6.25. 278 pages.
