To fulfill a sick boy's wish, rodeo star Tucker Granger surprises little Owen in the hospital. But no one is more surprised than single mother Sierra Baker. She figures the carefree champion for a different kind of man. One who doesn't spend hours talking "cowboy code" with a hospital-bound child.

I love the Grangers! The story of brokenness and healing for Tucker and Sierra is battle that I think most of deal with at one time or another. Owen is adorable and I fell in love with him from the previous book. The continuing side story of Frank and Cady also keeps you intrigued, as well. Frank deserves to be loved by a good woman. God first, Family second, work third..that's something Tucker has learned since his accident. I think we can all learn from that as well. Sierra learns that she can...more
Owen, the child in this story, will totally steal your heart, and the relationships he has with his mom, Sierra, and his new friend Tucker Granger, are amazing. Many of the characters in this book have been through heartbreak in the past that makes them fearful of what the future holds, and their reactions seem very genuine and plausible. Jillian Hart has a true gift of creating characters that seem like they are your friends, and that makes the story very enjoyable to read. I highly recommend t...more
This is most best heartwarming story I ever reading it.
Hmm, glad to be back amongst the decent romance novels again. Its amazing how you can get into a streak of bad ones. But anyways, I digress. This romance was pretty enjoyable. Sure it had a few flaws, but they weren't enough to spoil the book at all.

Sierra Baker is a nervous wreck. Her little boy is due for surgery and since he's all she has after her husband left both of them, she can't really contain what she feels. So she has mixed emotions when little Owen gets his miracle wish fulfilled in...more

Rodeo star Tucker Granger surprises a little boy named Owen who is in the hospital for open heart surgery. His mother, Seirra Baker, knows Tucker from her childhood. He used to pull her pig tails to get her attention. But when she grew up, she married another man who left her after seven years to raise her son on her own, working as a waitress to make ends meet. She has promised herself never to fall in love again, to risk another heartache, and has built her world around her son.
Tucker is shy o...more
I really enjoyed this book. It was so exciting! The passion between Sierra and Tucker is electric, almost as if you can feel it yourself. I can’t believe how inspiring it was, and how each character just seems so very alive. There is no small character in this book. Every character has a shining personality that just emanates off the pages. As a mother I can greatly relate to Sierra Baker, especially her unmatched love for her son Owen. My sons always come first to me, and just like Sierra I try...more
This is a very clean romance. This story is pretty cute. Although there were a few things I didn't like. There were a few parts in the book when I couldn't figure out who was talking. It was like they moved on to something else and I didn't know about it. Another thing that got me was all the back and forth. I love you, I hate you, you haven't really changed, but maybe you have, either way it won't work. The end kind of took me by surprise. Usually you get a chapter or two of a happily ever afte...more

"His Country Girl", by Jillian Hart, is a really lovely romance read. Sweet and sentimental, with just-right poignant touches, the story line will capture your heart. Sierra Baker is a single mom with a sick little boy waiting to undergo heart surgery. Owen Baker's "wish" comes true when his hero, rodeo star Tucker Granger, visits him in the hospital just before the operation. Sierra and Tucker had gone through school together, with the precocious Tucker unable to resist teasing the bookish and...more
This book was okay. Usually I enjoy the Love Inspired books, but this one just wasn't my cup of tea. It felt like it was both dragging and rushed at the same time. Like most Harlequins it was predictable, which I don't usually complain about, but this one felt moreso.

There is a chance that my entire experience reading the book was messed from the beginning because of poor editing. When Sierra is telling Tucker about how she used to have a horse, the first or second sentences of the paragraph sa...more
First thanks to Jillian for my copy of this book. Another great read, I have loved all in the series and this was no different. I fell in love with Owen but I don't think that is hard to do he's an adorable little boy. I love how he and Tucker and Owen bonded in the book. I love how Jillian weaves the story and how we see what both are thinking. I also have to say I love the background stories in this series. If you have read the previous two books you will know what I am referring to if not I w...more

Horrible. Avoid at all costs.

In one paragraph, the girl's horse is both living at her parents house and long deceased. In another scene, a little boy has his sneakers' shoelaces retied, then his boots are stomping on the porch, then his sneakers are being removed at bedtime.

For a while the author forgets that she's wrinting an 'inspirational romance', then she seems to remember and puts in several references to the Lord and prayer before forgetting again.

This was a freebie from the publisher, so...more

the novel had some good points, and was kind of interesting, but I thought Sierra's conflict was drawn out too long and really became a bit boring, and sometimes a bit contrived. Owen's character, a 9 yr old, was portrayed well, and Tucker showed a lot of maturity and perseverance.

Tucker is Owen's charity wish. The little boy wants to meet his rodeo hero. Tucker is recovering from a bad injury - one he almost died from, and it is making him think about his rambling ways. He has known Owen's Mom Sierra since he was 6 years old - and he has realized he has loved her the whole time. The problem - Sierra's husband abandoned Sierra and Owen and she is determined not to give another man a chance to abandon them again. Tucker finally put his heart out for Sierra and she told him...more
I would like to thank Jillian Hart for the complimentary copy of this book.

I received this book through the Harlequin Ambassadors' program. I liked the book but can't say that I loved it. One thing you know about a Harlequin romance is that it will end happily ever after. This book just took too long to get there. From the beginning of the story the two main characters were attracted to each other. Why Jillian Hart felt the need to take 213 pages to get them together is beyond me. I guess I didn't feel that the story line was robust enough to last 213 pages. It got to...more
Jillian Hart has another good story in this book which is in a series but can be read along as I have done #4 in Granger family Ranch series "His Country Girl". I enjoyed this quick read about a young woman who has been hurt and afraid to take a chance on Love again. She is a single Mom and works hard to support her little boy so HE wont be hurt again as he was when his daddy walked away from his responsibilities and family. I like the fact that Tucker and she had roots from when they went to sc...more

Jillian is one of my favorite Love Inspy authors! I just recently had the opportunity to read this book. Love Inspired books are sold through Harlequin's Steeple Hill line, which means they're typically only out on store shelves for a month or so as well as through their book club. But do not despair -- you can still find it online -- and I recommend that you do!

I fell in love with the Granger Family Ranch Series. Sweet, sweet love stories that share the love of God. God can do the impossible to...more

Jillian Hart reminds us that we mustn't let the pain of the past direct our future. Reading this book will open your heart to emotional intimacy and trust.
Another excellent Granger Story.

Tucker is back home in White Horse, Wyoming. He is still recovering from a rodeo fall he had. Tucker is looking at life differently after his near death experience.

Sierra Baker is a single mom. In the previous Granger Book we found out that her son, Owen, had a heart problem. She had thought it was asthma.

The Children's Charity asks Tucker to visit Owen in the hospital the day before his heart surgery. Tucker is Owen's hero.

This book continues on the secondary st...more
A story of starting over and two romances featured. The stuggles a person feels when a mate leaves them are dealt with by several. As I watched my oldest daughter struggle with pain when her marriage broke up and finding love again, I truly felt the pain of Sierra Baker.
Tucker Granger thinks he is fulfilling a young boy's wish as the lad faces heart surgery. But instead he gets way more than he bargained for.
Owen, the small boy, wrestles with his Dad walking out on him. Tucker can relate as h...more

It was a nice heart warming story!!

I adored this book from beginning to end. It's a love story. I loved how as the reader I felt really connected to Sierra. The love she has for her son, Owen, is very well written. As a mother, I can relate to always thinking ahead on how whatever action you take and the effect it has on your children. This book made me smile, tear up and made me want more. I'd love to know how the characters are doing now. (lol)

I enjoyed this one far more than I did the other Love Inspired book I had read. I recieved this book through the Harlequin Ambassador program, and while I'm not sure I would have bought this on my own, I did enjoy the story (as predictable as they are), and would probably pick up similar books by this author in the future.

I absolutely fell in love with "His Country Girl." The story line and characters were truly amazing and awe-inspiring and I love how this series incorporates the blossoming relationship between Frank Granger and Cady Winslow. This book and series is a most definite must read and one I will treasure forever.
Rodeo star visits boy facing open heart surgery. Reacquaints with the boy's mother. They're from the same small town, but he's been in the rodeo circuit, avoiding commitments. Romance blossoms, but she doesn't want to get hurt. Seems a little . . . forced. "No. No. No. Oh, okay".
Jason Cross
I enjoyed this sweet book. Though not my type of story - romance - Jillian Hart writes in a way that even some one like me can't stop reading it. I recommend this book to everyone - even the people who are not into romance novels - cause Jillian is a great writer.
