Fit to be Tied

Cleo Arlington dresses like a cowboy, is fearless and fun-loving, and can ride, rope, and wrangle a horse as well as any man. In 1916, however, those talents aren’t what most young women aspire to. But Cleo isn’t most women. Twenty-nine years old and single, Cleo loves life on her father’s Idaho ranch. Still, she hopes someday to marry and have children.
Enter Sherwood Statham, an English aristocrat whose father has sentenced him to a year of work in America to “straighten him out.” Sherwood, who expected a desk job at a post spa, isn’t happy to be stuck on an Idaho ranch. And he has no idea how to handle Cleo, who’s been challenged with transforming this uptight playboy into a down-home cowboy.
Just about everything either of them says or does leaves the other, well, fit to be tied. And though Cleo believes God’s plan for her includes a husband, it couldn’t possibly be Sherwood Statham. Could it?


This book held my attention. I have to say that! I really love that the two main characters, Cleo and “Woody,” were complete opposites! One is a woman cattle rancher and the other is an English lord. Who would suspect that love could form between them? Wait a minute! I can’t give away anything about the ending! Woops!

Because I loved the book A Vote of Confidence so much (see below) I was super excited for this one. So, I might have, just maybe, had high expectations for this book. I am sorry, so very sorry, to say that I…..hated this book. NOT REALLY!! I really, really liked this book! I also am letting another little secret leak about my real self…eek!…One of my sisters is a tomboy. So, I could totally understand Cleo. Well, I kind of understood her.

Back to the book at hand: I really do think that this is a very hard book to rate. I seriously don’t know what number of stars to give it. I am thinking really hard at the current moment.

So….I would like to give this book 3 stars! And, I have to say, 3 stars is very good for me. I mean, I can’t give every book I read five stars. And, to be honest, I do that a lot. But, since I am now blogging my reviews, I have to be totally and fully honest. So, 3 stars is very good! It is over Halfway!!!
