The Reliable Cowboy by Susan Page Davis ends August 31 #bookgiveaway


Welcome Susan! Its great to have you back on my blog. Looking forward to a fun week. 

Susan is giving away a copy of her new release The Reliable Cowboy. Be sure to read on down to find out how to enter.

Ever get nervous when someone you love is late? When they’re in a situation that could be potentially dangerous?
I fret every time one of my kids is flying—even more so than when I’m in the air myself. Recently my daughter flew home from Europe via Iceland. That put me on edge. No one in the family had flown that route before, and she had only a small window at the airport in Reykjavik to change planes. She couldn’t use her phone there. What if she got stuck in Iceland? That’s the situation the heroine of my new book The Reliable Cowboy is in, only
it’s 1877 and there’s no airport. (My daughter made her plane and arrived safely, by the way).

Isabella Johnston’s husband was a fisherman in Maine, and he was lost at sea. Now she’s traveled thousands of miles to Wyoming Territory as a mail-order bride. She has promised to marry Edwin Gray, a cowboy on a nearby ranch. Every time they set up a date, she gets nervous if he’s five minutes late. She had thought that, this far from the sea, she was done with that kind of worry. Now she’s not so sure.
The wedding day arrives, and Edwin is nowhere in sight. Has he got cold feet, or is something drastically wrong? Isabella gallops to the ranch to find out, because deep in her heart, she knows Edwin isn’t the type of man to leave a woman at the altar.

 

Susan is giving away two copies of the e-book. To enter the drawing, leave a comment and your contact information below. How do you react when someone you love is late for an important event? 

The Reliable Cowboy is now available as an e-book: http://is.gd/6H9wBZ

  4. I hate being late, but I try and give them a benefit of the doubt in case something came up is causing them to be late. I wait a little bit too. :)

    Thanks for the post and the giveaway! This sounds like a good read. sydneyjames68[at]gmail[dot]com.

    1. Sydney, I also hate being late, and I tend to overcompensate and be early. When someone else is late it makes me tense. My character, Isabella, is like that too.

  6. I'm an on time sort of person, so I get a bit frustrated if someone keeps me waiting long! Depending on who it is, I might get worried.

  7. I have to agree with Patty, it drives me nuts when someone is late!! But I also try to give the benefit of the doubt that something beyond what they can control, is delaying them. I don't like waiting more then about 15-20 minutes :-)
    This story sounds really good as mail-order brides are one of my favorite storylines! I'd love to find out why Edwin is late to his own wedding....lol!! Thank you for the chance to win a copy!

  8. If loved ones are on the road & are late. I worry a great deal. I pace. Such a relief when they finally do arrive.

    1. That's me all over, Mary, and it does no good for my husband to tell me that it does no good.

  9. Ladies, please accept my apologies for not replying like I usually do. This morning we go to MD Anderson for more tests for my hubby. I can't believe 3 months has passed! Thank you all for your understanding and or all your prayers. Would love you to pray that Joe will have good news and we will see tests results proving to doctors that God is healing him!!

  12. I hate being late but I married a man who is always late. On his groom's cake at our wedding, I had the bakery print the words: Get me to the church on time. :)

    Debbie Lynne, I've been praying you and Joe get the report you're hoping for. Hugs!

  13. Vickie, that is too funny! Thanks for stopping in.

  14. I married a man who is always early so when he is late I usually get very concerned & that is when I start trying to call

    ReplyDelete
  15. That sure makes sense to me, Sharon!

  16. I always start praying for their safety. Again! !
    Praying for healing for Joe and good news :)

  17. A lot depends on their previous reliability--if it is someone who is extremely punctual or good about notifying if they will be late, worry sets in fairly quickly. Others, who routinely run late, I generally don't worry at all--it may not be realistic, since the late arrivers can have problems just as often as the punctual, but it is a little like the boy who cried wolf!

  18. That is true--I guess we worry more about the conscientious than we do about the shiftless.

  19. This sounds so good, Susan! I wish I could have participated in the collection, as I had planned, but my gall bladder surgery put the kabosh on that! Blessings!

  20. Thanks, Carrie! I hope you're all better now. I had that happen to me just about 5 years ago, right after we moved. It's no picnic.

  21. I react with frustration, but I am part of a family of those who run late on a regular basis. Just part of life! meredithfl at gmail dot com

  22. Meredith, I sympathize. I have one couple in my family that you always need to tell to arrive earlier than you actually want them there!

  23. I get frustrated but sometimes there may be a good reason for lateness . I usually tell habitually late people to arrive earlier then their not late.
