Driftwood Cowboy by Lenora Worth is a quick and thoughtful read.
Michelle Lancaster left her home in Spirit, Louisiana, looking for a way to run away from pain and heartbreak. She takes her horse, her only real source of comfort, and goes to Driftwood Bay, Florida, for a much-needed break.
Brodie Stevens has run away from pain and heartbreak, too. He has moved to Driftwood Bay. He floats through life as captain of a charter boat company and driftwood artist.
Brodie, a self-proclaimed bachelor, sees Michelle riding her horse, Coco, on the beach and is immediately drawn to her. When he notices she’s crying he wants to help; Michelle, however, wants to be left alone.
As they, alternately, try to ignore and be aware of each other, their walls start to crumble. However, can two deeply hurt people help each other?
Driftwood Cowboy deals with some very heavy issues and will have you thinking about it after you have finished the last page.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
