Calla Rose returned home to McKenna Springs to help save her family's business... The Yellow Rose... a ninety-year old Texas dance hall. She also came home to heal. Being a victim and finding her trust level in men damaged, she is determined to succeed in this one thing for her family and nothing is going to deter her from doing just that. Now even a green-eyed cowboy/mayor with heart-stopping smiles and kisses that threaten to thaw the ice around her heart.
Ty Connes wasn't looking for love. He had simply stopped in to welcome the latest business owner to town. But coming face to face with Calla Rose would prove an unforgettable experience in more ways than one and send his heart into a tailspin. Never a man to not face a challenge head-on, he prepared to get past the barricades she had erected between herself and the male population. But it was easier said than done, and just when he's within reach of her heart, a lie brings memories of pain and distrust and Calla's heart may be out of his reach for good.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Sweet Romance
Reviewed in the United States on October 24, 2018
Just a good sweet love story. I enjoyed Waltz With Me Cowboy.
This was a really, really good book.
The characters are charming. All of them. From the main characters Calla and Ty to the Ty's friend and associate fireman
Reid. To Darcy the diner owner.
Calla's sisters are just as charming and I am hoping that since they are single and 'available' that they'll be finding their own romance and happy ending also.
There's a little interest simmering between Reid the fireman and Calla's sister Jaz so I am expecting/hoping maybe for their story to be in the works.
There is a bit of conflict because Calla is reeling from a bad relationship causing her to not have any trust. But Ty wins her heart in the end making Waltz With Me Cowboy a good 'ole romance.
I look forward to reading more from Debra Holt.
5.0 out of 5 stars Like spending time with old friends
Reviewed in the United States on October 29, 2018
I feel like I have already been introduced to these characters somewhere along the line. At the very least, I felt like they were old friends. Calla has a lot of baggage in her past from which she is trying to escape. So in a way it was perfect time for her to have to come home to take over the family business, even though losing your beloved father is never a good thing. I admire her strength and devotion to her family. And her sisters have their own fun personalities that blend so well.
Ty is that hottie ranch type with the slow drawl and sexy demeanor, but without being the cocky type. He takes his responsibilities seriously and is a man who knows how to get things done. He also loves to love hard and will show it to you more than he tells you. I only have a little country in me, but can totally see myself falling for someone like that myself.
One of the greatest scenes in this book is when the two of them meet for the first time. I don't like to give away spoilers, but I have often wanted to do that on purpose. It works much better as an accident. And I have never wanted to take a ride down the river in a rowboat so much, just sayin'.
Calla and Ty are fun because they spar and play off each other so well. The chemistry between them is intense. They bring out the best in each other. And their lives in McKenna Springs just seem so relaxing in spite of all the hard work, yet almost magical and exciting. It's a place I want to visit and these are people I want to meet. I am guessing that Calla's sisters Jaz and Lily will soon have their own stories, and I can't wait to read them.
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review.
