Trip Hall had everything until a stunt with a fiery car crash changed his life. He and his baby, Trevor, head back to Shirley, Wyoming to try to get on with his life.
Elizabeth McArthur Corcoran, Beth, is a widow with a four-year-old daughter, Bailey. She moves back to Shirley, coming face-to-face with the man she has never forgotten.
As a CPA, Elizabeth works at the accounting firm in Shirley. Her boss, Mitchell, is a cranky fellow, practically scrutinizing her steps. Trip turned to writing mysteries after his accident left him no longer a stuntman. It took a while to gain use of his leg again, going from a wheelchair to a cane, taking painkillers to numb the pain. He knew Beth in high school and she still has an effect on him. Beth is happy to see Trip but does not know if she can give her heart to another man since the death of her husband. As she and Trip spend time together, she begins to have problems with a weird stalker. She does not know if it has to do with her being with Trip, as the two strive to make a life together.
Always a Cowboy is a splendid read. I like the premise with Trip and Beth, meeting again years later, both carrying their own silent scars. The story opens up in a way to immediately draw the audience into the lives of the couple. I love the addition of the children into the story. Cindy Spencer Pape is a talented author with a prose for penning excellent work, and impressive characters and dialogue. She creates a wonderful town and a cast of delightful characters, along with some secondary ones you could squash like a bug in this page-turner read.
