Denise Hunter’s Trouble With Cowboys

Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek’s premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie’s column is cancelled, she’s given first shot at a new lovelorn column—and she can’t afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie’s never been in love.

Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town’s smooth-talking ladies’ man Dylan Taylor: She’ll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he’ll help her answer the reader letters.

Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can’t risk getting hurt now.

The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister’s antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.

When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn’t know what to trust—her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.


No one does chemistry quite like Ms. Hunter! And this book is filled with it. You can’t help but fall in love with Dylan who is a fun character. As an older sister myself, the way Annie takes care of her sister is completely relatable. However, when it came to Dylan, Annie was seeing impossibilities where I didn’t see them. I kind of felt like she was creating problems where there were none. But, the book was intriguing, and there was an interesting curve ball thrown in towards the middle. I kind of would have liked to know more of what made Annie so special to Dylan, but other than that this a good novel to spend time with. Spiritually, Annie has to learn to trust God with her sister and her relationship with Dylan. Good book. Recommended.
