The Cowboy's Healing Ways



After being wrongfully convicted of a crime and losing custody of her daughter, all single mother Laura White wants is her little girl back. But she’ll need a job and a real home first. When Dr. Jesse Alvarez Cooper hires her as housekeeper at his Oklahoma ranch, Laura is grateful. The handsome cowboy doctor, with a harrowing past that stretches continents, also vows to help her get her child back. Suddenly, Laura’s dreams may come true—two permanent place settings added around the Cooper family table.

My Review:

A heart-breaking and endearing story filled with warmth and the hope of a better future. Minton has created a delightful cast of characters that makes you want to live next door so you can watch everything transpire first-hand. I loved the secondary characters, mostly made up of the Cooper clan. All love and laughter and fierce loyalty.

Jesse comes by his knight in shining armor gene honestly. :-) He can't help but get involved in Laura's plight just as Laura can't resist the lure of the handsome doctor. Oh, she tries to fight it. She has more important things on her agenda -- like getting her daughter back. But Jesse is kind of hard to ignore. He has his life all planned out and falling in love isn't supposed to come for another five years or so. Watching these two attract and repel made for a fascinating read.
