Book Review: Give the Lady a Ride

Monday, April 11, 2011

About the Book:

"Patricia Talbert is a high-class social coordinator from New York.

Talon Carlson is a rugged bull rider from Texas.

He thinks she’s too polished.

She thinks he’s insane.

Opposites aren’t quick to attract when the lady who enters the cowboy’s world is on a mission to sell the ranch. But a box of letters changes her mission–letters of unshakable faith and a love deeper than anything she’s ever experienced.

Soon she finds his integrity appealing. Her spunk draws him in. He has the faith she craves; she may be the love he longs for. But faith and love aren’t achieved in a single weekend.

To buy time to explore the possibilities between them, she issues a challenge: 'Teach me to ride bulls.'


From here on, they’re in for the ride of their lives."

Amber's Review:

What a fun ride! As sweetly familiar as a carousel ride, along with all the added excitement of riding bulls, this quick read is sure to please Christian fiction fans who love contemporary romance and rodeos.

It all starts with two savvy city gals butting heads with some stubborn (but quite charming) cowboys. The ranch hands' careers are on the line as Patricia Talbert wrestles with a big decision: should she go back to the familiar world in New York helping her senator father, or should she choose to take the adventure of running the Circle Bar--and maybe find true love in the bargain?

With small-town rodeos, a steak cook-off, bull-riding lessons, and tender moments riding horses across the ranch, this book appeals to all those country-folk at heart. And with some great reminders to trust in God and to seek Him and His will, this book also offers some good take-away value along with the fun getaway.

Give the Lady a Ride may be a short novel, but it still gives the reader one enjoyable ride!
