My Rating: 4.5 stars
There’s always a touch of sadness when it comes time for the final story in a series. I’ve enjoyed the Gallagher brothers journeys in finding that special someone that fits them perfectly. The only empty place was where Glenna should have been. But their sister had left years ago after a fight with their father. Oh, the guys figured out why, but she was still missed. Now Glenna has gone missing under unbelievable circumstances and they’d hired Mitch to find her and bring her home. Trouble is, it’s hard to come home when you don’t know where home is.
Glenna was on the run. From what exactly she didn’t know, but she knew instinctively that her life was in danger. This stranger who claimed she was someone she couldn’t possibly be was annoying, stubborn and, if she admitted it, quite handsome. But still a stranger she couldn’t trust, until he’d rescued her from an abduction and kept her safe. It’s hard to imagine not knowing who you are. We all have memories that we’d love to erase completely, but for Glenna a trauma after a bus accident had wiped her memories and she truly had no clue who she was. She only knew for certain that she was in danger, and she had a secret that could cost her more than memories, it could cost her life.
Return of the Cowgirl brings Glenna Gallagher home. It also brings danger and mystery along with her. Glenna lost her memory but she didn’t lose her stubbornness. Mitch and Glenna have an intense attraction, one that Mitch is reluctant to act on since she doesn’t know who she is. Glenna has no such worries for she’s living in the moment for her memories may never return. The danger she’s in is very real and adds an edge to this romance from the very first page. It’s always a delight for me when past characters reappear, and in this final story in the series we catch up with everyone… even the dogs and horses that have been a part of all the Gallagher’s romances. I’ve had fun with these people, and I would highly recommend this story, as well as the entire series for any Romance reader. If you love mystery, sassy characters and a family that is tight knit then you’ll enjoy Return of the Cowgirl.
