Never was a Horse Who Couldn't be Rode,

Never was a cowboy who couldn't be throwed.

That is a lesson Samantha Jensen had to learn. But her horse wasn't exactly a horse. It was a bull. To save her family's farm after her father's death competing in the rodeo, Sam decides she'll learn bronc riding. 

Sam's mom though has other plans for the farm. She plans to sell it to investors, investors who are somewhat left of honest. After the death of her husband, she had been forced to turn the horse breeding farm into a dude ranch. When the Ames family comes to "vacation" there, she is fully aware of their desire to purchase the farm. What she doesn't know is their plans for it. 

The Ames family comes to look over the farm with and eye for what is wrong with it so they can get a rock bottom price and turn it in a mall.

Sam, while going through a trunk of her father's things, finds a paper advertising the bronc riding rodeo. The amount the winner receives is the amount she needs to buy a horse that will allow her to turn the dude ranch back into a lucrative breeding farm.  But can she do it? Can she compete in the same event that cost her father his life? 

Rodeo Sweetheart, by Betsy St. Amant, is a well-written book about the determined heart of the rodeo. I just checked and the book is listed on for $5.50!!  You almost can't afford to NOT order this book. So go ahead, click on the link at the end of this post and buy it already. You'll be glad you did. 

(I received a complimentary copy of this book direct from the author. I was in no way paid for my review and the complimentary copy in no way directed my review.)

Okay I'm having trouble with the html link so just click on the link above to order the book. Thanks so much!!!
