Wish Upon a Cowboy by Jennie Marts

Hot on the ice and tall in the saddle...

Rancher and hockey coach Logan Rivers' attempts to hire a housekeeper are hindered by women more interested in marriage than meal-planning. So when snarky Harper Evans arrives with zero romantic interest in him, he couldn't be happier. But as he gets to know her, he finds himself hungering for more than her cooking.

Down-on-her-luck single mom Harper Evans came to Colorado with one goal: to find her son and bring him home. Temporary work for a local rancher seems perfect, but to keep the job she has to deny her feelings for the hot cowboy who's heating up her kitchen.

Logan's secret learning disability has caused a financial mistake that could cost him everything. With the holidays approaching and a storm closing in, he and Harper have to save his ranch and fight for her son. But can Harper trust the cowboy who is offering her both a home—and his heart?

Harper is a woman who is just getting herself back together. After trusting her mom one too many times, Harper found herself having to call her mother-in-law to take her son while she had to go to jail for a few months. With a new lease on life, she has taken her last dollars to head to the town where her son is living. She wants to see him, hug him, and take him back home. But when she arrives in town, she needs a job in order to save up money to go back home.

Logan is trying to keep his family's business running while his dad is away helping another family member. Despite his bachelor status, he isn't looking for someone to warm his bed at the moment, which makes his housekeeper's advances very uncomfortable. Having to fire someone he's known for a while because she was more interested in him than doing her job was not the way he wanted to start his day.

With an introduction to Logan, Harper knows that she can do a good job. However, she is also wary of telling people her personal business. She seeks out her son, but bitterness and hatred fly out of her mother-in-law's mouth. Harper has to decide whether or not she truly is the best for her son.

This was a super sweet story. The characters are relatable, and I really enjoyed the townspeople too. When push comes to shove, will the people side with Harper or with her ugly mother-in-law? This story was quick to read but moved along well. The characters were well developed and I liked watching Harper and Logan's relationship build.

This is the fourth book in the series, and each one gives us another cowboy's story. Here Logan is about to find love from a most unlikely arrival into town.

Harper has had a rough time of it, yet really has no self-pity, she is just desperate to be reunited with her young son, Floyd. He is in Creedence with his paternal grandmother, Judith. Judith is not keen on Harper ever seeing her son again, which is a fairly extreme reaction to what has happened, but seriously impacts Harper's self-esteem and her confidence. Having arrived in town and found a temp job with Logan, she cannot wait to reunite with her son. Of course, nothing really runs smoothly – but as we get both her and Logan narrating the story, we know exactly how much they are falling for each other, and how difficult that is for both of them to address.

That time with just the two of them as employee/employer gives us a good chance to see what a good person Harper really is, and what a caring, lonely soul Logan is too. The chemistry is great and there is a lovely level of banter and snark between them which really made me chuckle. It is a well-rounded story, which ties up all the slightly worrying loose ends and gives both Logan and Harper exactly what they need as well as who they want!

I really enjoyed this addition to the series, and am looking forward to Zane having a chance sometime soon (hint, hint).
