Driftwood Cowboy by Lenora Worth

Book Blurb:

Can she heal from a tragedy too great to bear?

When Michelle Lancaster flees her hometown of Spirit, Louisiana to spend time at a beach retreat in Driftwood Bay, Florida, she only wants to run from the tremendous pain of a tragedy that caused her perfect life to shatter into pieces.

But on the day when the memories become too much, a man steps into her path on the beach and causes her beloved horse Coco to almost throw her. Not to mention this is the one man Michelle has tried to avoid. But laid-back boat captain and artist Brodie Stevens has his eye on Michelle and soon, he is pursuing her with a strong-willed determination. He too is haunted, but believes that together they can heal each other. Now the driftwood cowboy must convince Michelle it’s possible to hope… and to love again.

My Review:

In Driftwood Cowboy by Lenora Worth, Michelle is a powerful heroine whose pain I could feel.  Lenora really managed to make me feel connected to Michelle and wonder how anyone could get over what she's been through.  She can't forgive herself, she can't move on.  Michelle has lived through every a nightmare no one wants to.  She feels, but she doesn't know if she can ever be happy again.

In Driftwood Bay she meets Brody.  Brody is a strong hero who has his own hauntings.  As soon as he sees Michelle he wants to know her.  Michelle finds herself spending more and more time with Brody, but the times when she feels happy are immediately followed by guilt and sadness.  Brody doesn't push even though he can see Michelle's pain...he lets her set the pace and tell him what she can.  I really liked this quality in Brody.

I liked the pace of their relationship and the very real feelings they evoked.  Driftwood Cowboy is a very touching story, and how Michelle and Brody move forward was quite the journey.  I liked how Lenora didn't give me all the answers right away, and I had to work through it with the characters.

With vivid descriptions of the place and the people, I'd recommend Driftwood Cowboy to romance readers looking to spend some time lost in a heart felt story.
4/5 stars
