This is book #3 in the Yellow Rose Trilogy. This is an unusual and adorable Christian romance set in the Old West and remains one of my favorite Lori Wick's!
Reagan knows her way around 19th-century New York City---but nothing back East has prepared her for the land of armadillos and God-fearing Texans! When rancher Cash Rawlings comes into her life, she's intrigued by his gentle, prayerful ways---but could she ever share his faith---or his life?
Third book of the Yellow Rose trilogy about former Texas Rangers who are brothers and find the power of true love through their new found religion. Book 1:"Every Little Thing About You", Book 2: "A Texas Sky", Book 3: "City Girl". Light reading. Entertaining
review The "city girl" of the title is Irish lass Eileen Reagan Sullivan, who can easily control a bicycle and maneuver her way around New York City, but whose deeply unhappy past prevents her from being truly joyous. Following an ad for a governess/nanny, she arrives in Texas only to find that life is quite different here.
With all romances, the formula is the same: boy meets girl (Cash Rawlings is a ranch owner who attends the same church as Reagan's landlords), boy loses girl (Reagan is vehemently anti-marriage), conflict ensues (Reagan is an unbeliever and Cash is a Christian, precluding their dating), and finally boy wins girl (Reagan converts and they live happily ever after) but Wick is a good writer who has a feel for the characters. Cash is a dream man: gentle, caring, kind, intelligent, and strong. Reagan is a bit too naive for her own good, but has a winning personality and moxie.
The preachy tone of the book will undoubtedly turn off some readers, but I loved reading about how Cash very gently courts Reagan, knowing that she doesn't trust men entirely due to her background. Would that all men were this considerate.
As the final book in a trilogy, City Girl does an excellent job of concluding the story of the Rawlings brothers. I kind of wanted to see the wedding of Dakota and Darvi in the previous book, but now I see how it fits so much better in this one.
