Cowgirl Trail-book review

Cowgil Trail is part of a six-book series about four generations of the Morgan family living, fighting, and thriving amidst a turbulent Texas history spanning from 1845 to 1896.  Although a series, each book book can be read on its own.

About the book

In 1884 Maggie Porter returns to the Rocking P Ranch. The sanatorium was not able to save her mother and now her father's health is failing. When the cowboys walk off the job leaving no one to drive the cattle to market, head ranch hand, Alex Bright, cannot convince the men to stay. How could Alex let this happen?
Maggie is desperate to save the ranch and she turns to the town's women for help. The new cowgirls must herd, rope, and drive the cattle to market. With only two days left, outlaws charge the small band of cowgirls in an effort to start a stampede. The cattle begin to scatter. Will they lose everything? Where will their help come from?

My Opinion

I wasn't really sure about this book when I saw the cover, I know it's really cliche to say this but NEVER judge a book by its cover!  Then I started to read it and it grabbed my attention right away and I fell in love with Maggie Porter the main character.  This was a page turned and I would stay up late at night reading and promise myself just one more page and before I knew it I had finished the entire book!  What I didn't realize was that this book was part of a 6 book series, I'm thrilled about that and can NOT wait to read the rest of the series.  Obviously you do not have to read them in order and they can stand alone by themselves.  Susan Page Davis is a dynamic writer that captivates her readers and leaves them wanting more, I will definitely start reading more of her books in the near future.  I give Cowgirl Trail 5 out of 5 stars for the spunkiness that she gave Maggie and the other ladies in this powerful book with a little bit of Texas history thrown in.

Thanks for reading,
