Cowboy Trouble, ISBN 9781402236686, Sourcebooks Casablanca, $6.99

Atlanta journalist Libby Brown’s transition to rural living isn’t going exactly as planned. Her Wyoming ranch and its picturesque outbuildings are falling to pieces all around her. So is her resolution to live a self-sufficient, independent life–thanks to the irresistible allure of her neighbor’s fringed leather chaps and the town sheriff’s shiny badge. When the town’s only unsolved mystery falls in her lap, Libby can’t resist partnering up with the hunky sheriff to search for a missing teenager–but her neighbor, rancher Luke Rawlins, has other ideas.

Luke is a genuine Wyoming cowboy who looks like Elvis, talks like John Wayne, cooks like Martha Steward, and is almost impossible to resist. While Libby adjusts to a life where high fashion means wearing your Wranglers in “slim fit” instead of “cowboy cut,” her small-town beat leads her deep into the heart of her new hometown, where she discovers that everyone has their secrets, and some of them are as dangerous as they are surprising.


“Ms. Kennedy’s debut novel is a winner. Her characters are refreshing and different…A little romance, a little mystery, good looking guys and wide open spaces are a perfect combination for a really good story and Cowboy Trouble definitely reflects this. I’m really impressed with this first book and can’t wait to see what’s next.” –Night Owl Romance

“Contemporary western fans will enjoy this one!” –Romantic Times

“There’s plenty of wacky humor and audacious wit in the mystery-laced escapade that provides a fresh take on the traditional contemporary Western.” –Library Journal

“Sometimes running away from your troubles is the worst thing you can do, but it brings the greatest rewards. What happens when you have more than one man interested in helping you find your happily ever after and you can’t choose? Now throw in a crazy or two for flavoring. You have one heck of a problem. Sound interesting? Then you need to read Cowboy Trouble. –Wendy Zwaduk, Romance to Make Your Heart Race
