Bookshelf Friday - When All My Dreams Come True by Janelle Mowery

I have to be honest, I didn't love the cover of this book, but the back cover piqued my interest so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did.

Here's a little about the story:

Bobbie McIntyre dreams of running a ranch of her own. Raised without a mother and having spent most of her time around men, she knows more about wrangling than acting like a lady. The friendship of her new employer awakens a desire to learn more about presenting her feminine side, but ranch life keeps getting in the way.

Ranch owner Jace Kincaid figures the Lord is testing his faith when a female wrangler shows up looking for work. Bobbie has an uncanny way of getting under his skin, though, and he’s surprised when she finds a home next to his heart. But when his cattle begin to go missing and his wranglers are in danger from some low-down cattle thief, can Jace trust God, even if it may mean giving up on his dreams?

I really like Bobbie's stubborn strength in this book. She does not give up easily, and that trait goes a long way in helping those around her. Searching for a home, she soon realizes that she needs God too. I loved how the Gospel is woven in and shared with Bobbie in such normal ways.

Jace is a great leading man. Strong enough to stand up to Bobby and equally as stubborn, his matching personality sets a fun stage for their growing relationship.

The adventure and suspense in this book was well paired with the romance, and I turned the last page satisfied with a smile on my face. When All My Dreams Come True is the first in Janelle's Colorado Runaway Series, and I'll be sure to read the rest.
