Special Delivery Baby by Sherri Shackelford
I loved this story by Sherri Shackelford. Will Canfield and Tomasina Stone are perfect for each other, once they work through some things, like Texas Tom being a drover, and Will wanting to go into politics. With an abandoned baby in the mix, I couldn't stop reading.
Will Canfield, Noah Burgess, and Daniel Gardner found Cowboy Creek after they get out of the war. Tomasina drives a herd of cattle into Cowboy Creek. Her pa had died on the trail. Will finds an abandoned baby outside his door. The Murdoch gang instigating trouble, Will having rules in town he expects to be obeyed, and Texas Tom out to break every one of them, and abandoned baby had me laughing, crying, and cheering for the characters. I felt like I was living in this town and these were my neighbors.
Tomasina wants her past back, her life as a drover and her pa in charge. Will is looking to the future. Cowboy Creek would be the county seat and he the governor. Can Will and Tomasina come to terms on what they want out of life? Sometimes what we want most out of life isn't really what we need. This is a story you don't want to miss.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
