Let's have a cup of tea and visit for awhile . . .
This is my fifth Kindle book
The Cowgirl & the Cowboy, $0.99 for Kindle, $6.99 for paperback, and if you have Kindle Unlimited, it’s FREE!
Fontella is recently divorced from an abusive husband. Felix is recently divorced from a selfish wife. Catrina devises a way to put these two hurting people together on a cattle ranch, since they are both experienced and talented in raising beef cattle, in the hopes that they will complement each other and fall in love.
Each of them arrives at the new managerial position hoping for a fresh start and thinking they are the only one the boss has hired for the job, but they soon find out they are required to work together and the owner is leaving for Europe.
When their two eight-year-old girls become besties, it complicates matters. Felix defends Fontella from an attack by her abusive ex and it breaks the ice between them and opens the door for a tender relationship.
Fun Facts: Book 5
This one was so much fun to write. I had a blast with the names and I had no idea that so many fun twists and turns would present themselves with Fontella’s name, Felix’s name, and also their daughters. I think it made the entire story much more fun than if there’d been no interplay with the characters’ names.
Also, many years ago, when I lived in Idaho, Felix Fletcher was my next door neighbor.
Carolyn was born and raised in Idaho. She has worked with animals for most of her life (prepare yourself, the list is long): cats, dogs, horses, cows, goats, sheep, rabbits, turkeys, ducks, chickens, guineas, and geese. She was married to a cowboy for twenty-five years and during that time lived on seven different cattle ranches. She learned how to give shots to cattle, brand cattle, castrate bull calves and close the head catch in time to capture the beast that was flying through the working chute like a streak of lightning. She also learned to back the truck up to the trailer hitch and get it right the first time.
When a teen, she attended horsemanship clinics and schools, and competed in horse shows that included dressage and jumping. She owned and trained seven of her own horses. After having two children, both of whom she homeschooled until they passed the SAT with flying colors (which is absolutely no credit to her as they both reside in the genius category and continually leave her wondering what the heck is going on) she dove into homesteading, learning how to make her own bread, make soup stock from scratch, butcher chickens, rabbits, goats, sheep, and cows, and one year had so much fun canning everything in sight that when she counted the full glass jars in the pantry, she was shocked to discover there were over a thousand.
Her knowledge of settings used as the basis of her stories is diverse due to the fact that she has lived in many different states including Idaho, Montana, California, Texas, Missouri, Virginia, Indiana, New Jersey, Washington, and Arizona. She now resides near Seattle. Her hobbies include knitting, crocheting, soap making, and, of course, writing. Oh, and her favorite author? P. G. Wodehouse.
