The last thing Sadie O’Toole needs is a cowboy too handsome for his own good.
After canceling her wedding, Sadie decides to hit the road and honor her grandfather’s dying wish by traveling one last rodeo circuit with the unusual inheritance he left her: a turquoise 1959 Chevrolet Apache pickup and a mechanical bull.
Before his death, her grandfather contracted Henry Blake, a former rodeo star with a past, to accompany her, and Sadie is furious when she finds out. Only the fact that her grandfather was a shrewd judge of character persuades her to reluctantly accept Henry as her road trip partner.
Despite Sadie’s initial animosity, an undeniable attraction buds between them and sparks fly while they crisscross the South working rodeos and county fairs. But when Henry’s past returns to haunt him, threatening to take everything he holds dear, Sadie is forced to figure out exactly what her heart wants from life, love, and one certain cowboy.
"Hadn't the last couple months of her life been difficult enough? Calling off her wedding and losing her grandfather?" Sadie O'Toole can't help but wonder what else will happen when she accepts her late grandfather's challenge to take his mechanical bull out one last time to do the rodeo circuit that had been part of his life for so many years. Not to mention that he's picked someone to accompany her on this road trip! So, grieving the loss of the best man she's ever known, Sadie sets out on a road trip in a 1959 Chevrolet Apache, pulling Bill, the mechanical bull, and keeping company with a cowboy she just met!
On the Trail of Love begins and ends in Paducah, Kentucky but during its duration there are a lot of changes in Sadie's life. She learns that people aren't always what they seem and she finally understands why her grandfather chose Henry "Hank" Blake to ride along with her.
Renee Yancy has written a book filled with betrayal, misunderstandings, and questionable actions but she also shows the power of hope, trust, and forgiveness. I recommend On the Trail of Love to all who enjoy romantic fiction.
I received an e-book from the author but I wasn't obligated to write a favorable review. These are my own thoughts.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
She wants to take you on a journey into the past so fascinating that you can’t put the story down.
When she isn't writing historical fiction or traveling to see the places her characters have lived, she can be found in the wilds of Kentucky with her husband and two rescue mutts named Ellie and Charlie.
