Love Finds You in Sundance, Wyoming by Miralee Ferrell December 9, 2011

Summary: Angel Ramirez is tired of living a lie. But can she live like a lady? On the run from a dangerous outlaw, Angel works her way across several states disguised as a boy and working as a varmint tracker and horse wrangler. After taking a job on a Wyoming ranch owned by a bachelor and his widowed sister, she finally reveals her true identity and must fight to prove her worth as a ranch hand while somehow discovering her role as woman. Hiring a woman doesn’t sit well with Travis Morgan, and the dark-haired beauty is causing a ruckus among his cowboys. Just as Angel decides she’ll never be able to please her boss, an unexpected surprise arrives from across the ocean and makes trouble on the ranch. Will Angel leave with the person who’s come so far to claim her?

My Review: Angel is a woman living in a man’s world, as she wears men’s clothing and pretends to be a man to fit into the life of being a horse wrangler. Angel grows weary of all this lying and wants to reveal her true identity as she begins a new job. Little did she know that doing so would bring changes she had not planned upon. I found myself feeling like I was right there with Angel and wondering what it would be like to be her, trying to prove she was just as capable at her job as the men around her yet also knowing that even proving her skills would still leave men doubting her just because she’s a woman. The author drew such a portrait of the scenery and characters that I felt like her experience was real to me.I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. It was such a great storyline and I truly enjoyed it.I think this is the best one of Miralee’s books that I have read, and I love every one of her books.
