About the Book
Author: Chautona Havig
Genre: Historical Western Romance
Release Date: January 26, 2016
Women are trouble—lying, cheating, untrustworthy bundles of trouble.
Jack Clausen doesn’t need anyone but his horse and a boss who won’t interfere in his personal life—or lack of one.
Sure, he’s a lonely cowboy, but better lonely than brokenhearted.
If only he hadn’t met a girl who made him hope that honest and true women do exist. Maybe he wouldn’t be riding off into a snowstorm with a fresh determination to avoid women—indefinitely.
When Hazel Meissner sees a cowboy risk life, limb, and horse to save a child, she knows he’s someone special. When he finally gives her his heart, she considers herself the most blessed woman alive.
However, when he rides off without a word, she wonders if her heart will survive the loss.
One broken man. One trusting woman. One orchestrated misunderstanding that tears them apart. What’ll it take to bring Jack home again?
It’s Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing mashed up with the old ballad, “Cowboy Jack.” Don’t miss a cast of characters inspired by the Bard himself—especially Dirk and Deborah (Benedick & Beatrice).
Jack: a lot of hullaballoo on the prairie.

My Thoughts . . .
Having not read the synopsis for this book beforehand, it eventually dawned on me that it was beginning to remind me of Shakepeare's Much Ado About Nothing. (I am a huge fan of Kenneth Branagh’s adaption.) That made this bittersweet romance even more appealing to me. It was well-written and I thought it was so creative with the song "Cowboy Jack" brought into the story. I loved "watching" it play out with Christian characters in a different time-period. This is an enjoyable read!
