Being an only parent Taggart Jones gave up his career as a bull rider to be there for his daughter Becky. Now at eight years old Becky is determined that her father needs a lady in his life but she’s decided that it needs to be someone she approves of and wants to be with too.
Becky and her best friend come up with a plan to get Taggart to meet Becky’s pretty new teacher, Felicity Albright. Becky stops doing her homework, she wears spurs to school and she and her friend follow Felicity around town until the teacher decides a call home to the parents is necessary. Becky is determined to convince Taggart and Felicity that they are meant for each other no matter how much they resist.
The Cowboy and the Kid is the fourth book in the Code of the West/Tanner Brothers series by Anne McAllister. This is the first of the series I’ve read myself but each book can be read fine as a standalone read as they feature different couples and story lines. A nice little addition to this particular book too with the articles and clippings etc at the beginning of the story.
I have to say my favorite part of this book was Becky, she was simply adorable executing her plans to get her father a new woman in his life. Taggart and Felicity had their story stolen by their little matchmaker but that’s quite alright since it makes me want the relationship succeed even more to see a little one happy and getting her way. I did like our adults in the book too but an adorable child in the mix made this one just that little bit better.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
