A Cowboy for Kate by Debra Clopton ( A Four Weddings and A Kiss Novella)

It's 1885 and five preachers sit around a campfire out West, trading stories of unlikely couples they've seen God bring together. This is one of those stories . . .

In which Katie, who has chased off half a dozen suitors with her shotgun, hires a rambling ranch hand who's finding Katie may change his wandering ways.

Everyone in town knows Katie Pearl has no interest in getting hitched. She likes living on her own out on her departed Pa's big ranch, turning down suitors left and right—with a pistol by her side.

But when she needs a strong hand to help with rebuilding her house, Katie hires wandering cowboy Thad Rayburn, knowing he's just in town to make a quick buck and then he'll be off for parts unknown. But Thad's got a heart big as Texas. Their blossoming friendship may change her loner status and his wandering ways for good.

"A charming story filled with humor and hope that's sure to please her many fans." —Irene Hannon, best-selling author of the Guardians of Justice series (on "An Ever After Summer" in A Bride for All Seasons)
ebook, 100 pages

My review: A Cowboy for Kate by Debra Clopton


This novella is short and sweet. It has plenty of drama, action and romance for a short story. It is also a clean fast read.

Katie is mad at least the town thinks so. Katie was trapped in her house for three days after a tornado hit and destroyed her house. Men keep coming out to her ranch with the intention of marrying her now her father is dead and owning her ranch. She chases them off with a gun. I like the character of Katie.

Thad Rayburn's horse died. He wants to find work to help him get a new horse and stake. He wants to travel some more and see whats out their.

Katie hires him to help her build her a house again. She likes the idea of him not staying.

The setting for this is Midway, Texas 1871. Mostly set on a ranch.

Katie wants to be independent. She has a lot of issues to get over. I don't blame her what she went to would be tough.

I enjoy reading Debra Clopton's stories and will continue.

I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Thomas Nelson Publishers. In return I agreed to give honest review of A Cowboy for Kate.
