Because you can't judge a book by its cover

In The Cowboy Father by Linda Ford, Louisa decided to take a job to earn some extra money during the Depression. She needs the money to help pay for some medical bills she racked up during an illness that left her barren. Louisa offers to tutor Ellie Hamilton while the little girl is in a body cast. As Louisa tries to come to terms with this trial, she must also try and get Ellie to trust her and work at her lessons. Louisa soon realizes she can’t teach this little girl without a little help from someone close to Ellie. Emmet Hamilton, Elli’s attractive single father, is the perfect candidate. Soon Emmet and Louisa become friends as well as partners and as they learn more about each other, they develop something more than friendship. Can Emmet accept Louisa’s problem or will this mean the end of their friendship?

The Cowboy Father moved pretty quickly right from the beginning and had me intrigued by the first page. I really enjoyed the beginning when it seemed like all Louisa and Emmet could do was argue. I really enjoyed Ellie’s attempts to sabotage Louisa right from the beginning. It was interesting to see as the relationships evolved as the novel went on. I really like how quickly the plot moved forward and watching as the problems worked themselves out. I didn’t like how Louisa seemed hung up on the same issue the entire book. Just as it seemed she was accepting of it, she would decide that it was too big of an issue. Overall it was a pretty good book.
