My Thoughts:
Zina and Alex are thrown together when her dog shelter is damaged forcing a relocation to the warehouse/farm where Alex is training penguins for an over-the-top wedding.

Both Zina and Alex are reluctant participants in the wedding shenanigans. Zina takes over wedding planning duties when her best friend, Lacey, the mayor of Ido, is ordered on bedrest. That coupled with having to move her rescue dogs over to the warehouse on the wedding property puts her in the thick of things.

Alex agrees to take on the training of penguins since it’s close to his hometown and his family needs him. He’s on break from a job in Antarctica, one of many that’s taken him all over the world. It gives Alex a chance to help out, get his grandfather situated in a senior home and relieve his sister from some of the responsibilities she’s been handling all on her own.

Zina was an inspirational character. She showed an admirable strength of character leaving the army to come home when her brother needed her, but also by her dedication to the pit bulls in need of rescue. Alex was a sweetheart to his sister and her brood of little girls, but I can’t say I wasn’t a little disappointed by his constant wish to get the heck out of Ido. His sister and grandfather clearly needed his continued assistance, but I guess there had to be conflict somewhere. The romance between Zina and Alex was lighthearted fun.

Her Kind of Cowboy had me cracking up from all the whacky, chaotic situations Alex faces with four little girls, a feisty, foul-mouthed parrot, and a stubborn grandpa! With dogs, penguins and a parrot there’s no shortage of cute, entertaining animals. I think it’s fine to read this as a stand alone as each book focuses on a particular couple romance. I didn’t read the first book and didn’t feel like it impacted my enjoyment.

Goodreads Description:
No wedding is too much for the little town of Ido, Texas to handle...or is it?

Having successfully established themselves as a destination for weddings, the town of Ido is ready to kick it up another notch. Zina Baxter has stood on the sidelines during most of the matrimonial mayhem. But when a disaster at the pit bull rescue has her relocating the pups to share space with a winter wonderland scene, she finds herself smack dab in the middle of planning the craziest wedding yet.

Alex Sanders ran as far and fast as he could from his hometown--all the way to Antarctica. But a job opportunity as the penguin handler for an over-the-top wedding jerks entices him back. Being home means he can finally help his overwhelmed sister wrangle their unruly grandpa--at least until the next opportunity comes around and he can hit the road running again. The last thing he expects to find in Texas is a shot at love...

Once Alex crashes into Zina's life--literally--there's no denying their chemistry. But are their feelings for each other enough to keep Alex in Texas for good, or will he follow the march of the penguins back to the South Pole?

  2. That cover made me look. I am trash for dogs on covers, but I consider you my advisor when it comes to cowboy books. That wedding sounds fabulous!

  3. I tried one of her other series and didn't like it too much. But Sophia likes this author and maybe I'd like a different book or series from her.
