Kelsey Wilcox was left at the altar by her cowboy fiancé. Her parents lost their ranch. As a result she wants nothing to do with cowboys and ranches. She has a new life now as the owner of a successful beach restaurant that employs women who were previously homeless. She was in control. An August Bride, a novella by Debra Clopton, is the story of how rapidly things changed for Kelsey. During her efforts to save a drowning dog she herself is rescued from drowning by Brent, a gorgeous cowboy rancher. He falls for Kelsey immediately. Unfortunately for him he personifies everything Kelsey thinks she doesn’t want in a man and does her best to discourage him even though she is attracted to him. Loving a challenge and with a little help from Kelsey’s aunt and her friends who are known as “the Matchmakin’ Posse of Mule Hollow”, Brent does not give up trying to convince her to give him a chance. He is “relentless” in his pursuit. Can he win her over?
This novella is filled with delightful characters, humor and sensitivity. It’s a feel good story and easy to read.
