The Cattleman Meets His Match by Sherri Stackelford

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Historical, The Cattleman Meets His Match. This book is a follow up on the book The Widow's Heart, and features another of the Elder brothers. It's a great story, Sherri always does a great western, I love her work. This story is well written, a story of family; one has too much and one is looking to find hers. You'll love these characters, even though they are at opposite side of the situation, they are joined together by a loving God.

In an effort to get away from a family of older brothers,John Elder drives a herd of cattle to a new place in Kansas. He rides into a town to find his cattle crew, they are drunk and in trouble. He fires them and then chews himself out for not hiring a replacement crew first. He had only a short window to get his cattle across the Kansas border. Walking down the alley, he is struck by what later becomes his new crew. One, fiesty, beautiful woman and four little girls are fleeing from a brothel window. When a drunk man come after them John is forced to help these girls.

Moira O'Mara has been kidnapped by a horrible man and thrown into a locked room with four young girls. The girls have been thrown into a room in a brothel and are terribly frightened. Moira comes up with a plan and they fall right into the arms of a cowboy. She is grateful when he rescues them but when he decides to just leave the herd of longhorns so he can protect her and the girls from a crooked deputy, she takes thing into her own hands and takes over the herd.

This is a great read, you will laugh, you will cry, and these characters will steal your heart. I hope Sherri writes about the other Elder brothers because I loved these people and so will you. God bless all of you and have a great week.
