Gabe is helping her sister after her accident. He is a veteran who is also helping some veterans with issues. They have their ups and downs throughout the i time but life changes things for her in a big way. Love their interactions and her family. Their ranch is so wonderful. Love Rory also. Cute story and love th

It was ok, the story was good and the characters were well developed. I liked that they had flaws and weren’t always super likeable. But there were some editing things that just got under my skin. A ‘heard’ of horses, and Mia circled her mare Penny, but then dismounted from a horse named Chevy? Maybe this isn’t the genre to be reading since I am picky about stuff like that, but it really spoils a book for me.

The Bride Wore Red Boots,a good read

This book didn’t hook me at the very beginning,it took awhile.But once you get into it, there are a lot of characters,and some of them are real characters! It’s a family story with lots of older sisters,a few Veterans,and a little boy.It is well written and the last chapters are wonderful while keeping you in suspense as to how it will end.I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

Fast read and happily-ever-after

Besides a romance story, I liked that it included PTSD and the real life struggles of returning vets from the current wars we are fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. The reason if only earned four stars is that the heroine was a prickly, abrasive woman. Not likable at times.

The characters in this book are very real and complete the story. The many subplots work and make it much more interesting.

The Bride Wore Red Boots (Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys #2) by Lizbeth Selvig is just as wonderful as the first book in the series was. There are feisty girls, sassy women, hot cowboys, a merry band of military misfits and of course a WONDERFUL HEA that will make you cry, make you cheer and make you count down the days until book 3. This is Mia and Gabe's story.

Mia is a top notch surgeon, top of her field, published, accomplished, practically perfect. Every goal she sets she gets, nothing stand

I didn't know if I liked the eldest Crockett sister, Amelia aka Mia, from the first book. She came off as very goal oriented and high strung. Did she know her stuff as a doctor, most definitely but as a warm caring person...not so much.

Here we find Mia back in NY, at work and get filled in a little more as to what goes on in Mia's world. Rory, sweet 10 yr old little boy, whom Mia met when she treated his mother. A mother who became hooked on prescription drugs and then had the misfortune to deve

Her plan is to spend some time with her family and hopefully also gain some perspective as to what life path she should follow next. Returning home also means putting herself in close proximity to former soldier Gabriel Harrison, which is quite unsettling for her...

What a wonderful, funny, heartwarming romance! Mia Crockett is a surgeon living in NY, driven and a bit hardheaded; Gabriel Harrison is a patient advocate who has been helping Mia's family in Wyoming after Mia's sister is badly hurt in an accident. Mia and Gabe butt heads and drive each other crazy at first, but when Mia suffers a setback with her dream job and returns to Wyoming, they realize that there are sparks lurking beneath all their squabbles! What follows is more than a love story, as G ...more

In this second book in the Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys series, Ms. Selvig continues to blow me away. Not only are her primary characters strong, but the secondary characters are just as impressive and get you just as involved with their lives. She also deals with the subject of PTSD in the book, which is very near to my heart since it has forever changed my husband's life.
Amelia (Mia) is at a very disappointing time in her life. Nothing is going as planned and for Mia that is very unusual. S

*Book was received for the purpose of an HONEST review from Edelweiss.*

Wow! What a great romance. I have to say I have yet to read an Avon book I didn't adore. And THE BRIDE WORE RED BOOTS is no different. With this story we get to see Mia fall in love. Fans of the Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys series will adore this one. If you are new to the series, yes you'll want to read the previous titles, but I don't think you'll be lost if you don't. I loved watching Mia and Gabe fall in love and figure

Mia is a no-nonsense surgeon who is married to her work. When she fails to get the promotion she had worked so hard for, she is stunned. Her work is impeccable, but her people skills are sorely lacking. Wounded, she takes time off and returns home, to her family's ranch, to be a liaison for her sister's upcoming spinal surgery. Once there, she runs into a man who knows how to push her buttons, and he enjoys it! In the process of being thrown together by necessity, they each reveal a wound that h ...more

With her Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys series, Lizbeth Selvig has created story lines that are uplifting, entertaining and compelling. I have had the pleasure of reading The Bride Wore Denim (#1) and The Bride Wore Red Boots(#2). Ms. Selvig has centered these stories around two women that to the outside world appear sure of themselves and focused. Yet underneath it all are the normal human flaws. Insecurities, unhappiness, and longing for something more.

Delightful, adorable, and beautiful! I loved The Bride Wore Red Boots as much as I loved the first of the Seven Brides series! Lizbeth Selvig writes wonderful stories with characters so real, the reader has to feel attached. Our old friends from The Bride Wore Denim are back to support Mia and Gabe and his's Project groups of vets who are finding hilarious but not very popular ways to demonstrate their anger.

Scene starts out at hospital party for kids with Bitsy the clown and Dr. Amelia Crockett (Dr. Mia), then Rory Beltane has an allergic reaction that sets the rest of the story on a great adventure.
It is well written with plenty of detail and it really lets you connect with the characters and love them all. Lizbeth Selvig writes great dialogue and wonderfully realistic characters that will have you turning pages through twist and turns you cannot put it down until the end.

Great Read!

I LOVED this story!! It is a sexy, heartfelt, sometimes funny romance with Mia is NYC doctor on her way to a very successful career and Gabe is a veteran who works as a patient advocate for other veterans in a VA hospital in Wyoming. The author did a really good job of bringing you into the story and making the characters lovable and real. If you like romances with a strong heroine and a fun-loving hero throw in a child and a cat, this story is for you!!

I am loving the Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys books. The Bride Wore Red Boots is Amelia's story. She is on the fast track as a pediatric surgeon, but struggling with all the things going on at her longtime home in Wyoming. The characters are well developed and the story is well written. I can't wait to read The Bride Wore Starlight and the remainder of the stories.. Lizbeth is an excellent storyteller and a very good writer. Can't wait for more.

I haven't read any of Selvig's books in the past but I'll certainly look for her in the future. This was fun- it wasn't trite and it was a fresh take on the old tale of someone seeking to heal wounds and then coming up roses. Thanks AVON and Edelweiss for the opportunity. Recommend for anyone looking for a light, pleasant book AND a happy ending!

Mia returns home to the family ranch when she doesn't get the surgical job she wants in NYC. She and her sisters will try to run the ranch left by their father. She runs into Gab who is helping PTSD veterans. They join forces to help the wild mustangs, the vets and a young boy in foster care. Nicely written, I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

I won The Bride wore red boots on Goodreads Giveaways. If you loved The bride wore denim then you will adore this book too. I can hardly wait for book three. I loved the characters especially the "steamy" cowboys. Fun, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable. Wonderful author.

Dr Amelia Crockett had her whole life planned out away from the family's Wyoming Ranch. When plans are shattered she has to find her own way. I love a cowboy story and this family of 6 girls is so much fun to read. I can't wait for more to come out. Love a current western <3
