ABOUT THE BOOK

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?

An adventurous novel of faith, hope, and love in the Wild West.

MY THOUGHTS

I love historical romance stories, and this one did not disappoint. The story is set in Colorado Territory in 1872, and the main character is a woman caught up in a man's world. Bobbie is totally alone in the world, and the only way she can earn a living is to work as a ranch hand. She dresses like a man, works like a man, and hasn't had much exposure to the feminine side of life. She dreams of one day owning her own ranch.

Time after time, Bobbie finds herself in the middle of predicaments that nobody should have to deal with. Accused of bank robbery and stealing cattle are just some of her problems. Deep down, she needs to learn to trust men, and one man in particular. She must also learn to trust God's plan for her life.

A great story in a western setting, When All My Dreams Come True is filled with cowboys, wide open spaces, danger, romance, and a deep faith in God. A complete package that makes me want to find more books written by Janelle Mowery.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of When All My Dreams Come True through the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance, in exchange for my honest review.
