The Last Chance Cowboy (Colorado Cowboys, #5) by Jody Hedlund

The Last Chance Cowboy (Colorado Cowboys, #5)

As a midwife, Catherine Remington is successful in bringing new life into the world, but she's failed one too many times in finding true love. When she's accused of a murder she didn't commit, she's forced to flee and decides to run away to Colorado to honor a patient's dying wish to deliver a newborn infant to his father.

The repentant prodigal Dylan McQuaid is finally back in Fairplay. Elected as sheriff, he's doing his best to prove to the town he's a changed man and worthy of their trust. When a woman shows up with an infant son he didn't know he had, Dylan is left with only complicated choices on what to do next.

Having grown attached to Dylan's son, Catherine doesn't want to part ways with the infant, but what she doesn't bargain for is how easily she'll fall for the charming rogue, or how quickly her past will catch up with her and put their love and lives in danger.

Bestselling author Jody Hedlund brings her Colorado Cowboys series to an adventuresome close with this page-turning Western romance.


A catchy title and a beautiful cover may be your initial reasons for picking up this book but it's the story inside that you won't soon forget! The Last Chance Cowboy is the fifth and final book of Jody Hedlund's Colorado Cowboys series and it may now be my favorite. Dylan McQuaid is a reformed 'bad boy' who's trying to make amends for his past by serving as a temporary sheriff in Fairplay, Colorado. Part of that past appears to include newcomer Catherine Remington and the adorable baby that she has in tow. If only he could remember his last days in Chicago! Could he be little Austin's daddy?

The Last Chance Cowboy has secrets, false assumptions, and wrongdoings, as Hedlund offers a Dylan that we've never seen before. He and sweet Catherine share a powerful chemistry but there are many obstacles that may be impossible to overcome. The intriguing characters, western setting, and swoon-worthy marriage of convenience make this a book that I couldn't put down, and there's even a reunion with the other McQuaid family members. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this satisfying conclusion to the Colorado Cowboys!

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
