A really sweet story. :) It wasn't the most action-packed, but that's not the kind of book it was. There was a large faith theme, which was great. I really liked Cash! <3 He was so gentle, easy-going and caring.

Yea, it was a meaningful, cute story. :)

This was another cute little Christian fiction book... a nice end to the trilogy!

Reagan Sullivan is an independent woman who wants to get away from the city (NYC) and go west. So she takes a job (via mail) as a nanny for a widower's children in Texas. Except when she gets there, the guy has already gotten remarried. Oops... Anyway, so she takes a job as a cook at the local hotel/restaurant. In town, she meets several people, including Cash Rawlings, oldest of the three brothers, and hero of our

I just finished the book today but I really didnt know while i was reading how everything would set up right when all of those people they love had to come to Christ, its good to know a happy ending, or to many a new begining witch are always great. Im always sad at ending a trilagy of books but that gives me something to share with all of you. This book was something of an amazing I get to know The City, the one who only depands on herself but you realize that even those people need a friends a ...more

This is the series that got me into Lori Wick's books, and even after reading it several times, it's still a great light read any time. This is my favorite book in the series, especially because we still get to keep up with the rest of the Rawlings family. Highly recommended if you love this genre.

This is the third book of Lori Wick's, Yellow Rose Trilogy. The books are set in Texas in the 1880s. What's not to love about that? I love the time period, the setting, and mostly the characters. These are the first Wick books I've read, and now I'm looking forward to binge reading many more.

Enjoyed reading City Girl very much. I don't usually review books that were written so many years ago but felt led to say why I liked this book so much. In fact I have read the entire Yellow Rose Trilogy and loved all 3 books. I enjoyed reading about family ties and romance from a simpler time. When men were gentlemen and women were ladies. I enjoyed the loyalty between the family members and that these stories shared the characters Christian beliefs and placed a high value on a personal relatio ...more

There's not a whole lot you can say about inspirational romances. There's so much Christian stuff in there and only the barest undertones of love. There's barely any humor and there's no excitement. The writing isn't that good, it's just blah. The only thing romance books have going for them is the romantic scenes; if you don't have that you don't really have anything. &clearly, this book has nothing.
I got sick and tired of all the praying and I read right over the scriptures. E

I have no idea why i love this book so much but i do. It was one of the first books that i ever read that was more adult and for some reason it gets to me every time. I think i have read it at least 10 times again i don't know why its not like any other books i like. Its about a girl who wants better for herself so she moves from New York to Texas (takes place in 1883) for a nanny job. I fell in love with Reagan she is so independent and in no way does she want a man and normally im not into stu ...more

Enjoyed how the author tied all the previous characters in the series into this one and gave updates on their lives. Loved the moxie attitude of Reagan riding a bicycle, willing to live alone but question her fear of men due to a dad who drank. Reagan had a wonderful humor, great sense of generosity and work ethic. Cash as the ranch owner was just overall nice to the point of unbelievable. Loved the housekeeper, Kate, the temporary landlords, and the hotel owner, Sally, with being much more real ...more
Aug 29, 2008 Jenn rated it did not like it
I don't know why this book is in the romance section. She doesn't even meet the guy until half way through the book and hardly has much interaction with him at all. Most of the book is about her coming to Christ - which is a great thing, but I am already religious and if I wanted a 2 page sermon (I'm not kidding, the preacher's words take up 2 pages) I would just read my scriptures. I feel completely misled and I think the author is just seriously out to do some converting. This book should be i ...more

I enjoyed this one, though I think I still liked the second one best of the series. I liked Reagans character but I thought there would be more background to her story and I wished there had been more time spent on the romance then on her and Katy being "saved" but I guess that wasn't really the point of the book. I thought it was funny all of the guys "noticing" her...I thought it would have been better if she had noticed them notice her more and Cash had gotten a little jealous and kissed her ...more

Yellow Rose Trilogy #3
Cash Rawlings, oldest of the Rawlings brothers and owner of the family ranch and Rawlings Cattle Companyis is the last of the brothers to be unattached. It's not as if he's not open to the idea of love and matrimony… He just can't seem to find the right girl. Enter Reagan Sullivan, native of New York City, who recently became the newest resident of Kincaid, Texas, to which she had moved to fill a position as a nanny. Adventure is Reagan's middle name, but how that will affe

Lori Wick is one of my fovorite Christian novelists. The seamless way she crafts her stories amaze me. City Girl is no exception.

The story is set in Texas during the late 1800s and tells the way an unlikely couple fall in love. The descriptions are rich in detail and the plot kept me turning the pages. When you read this book, look for the way Lori Wick portrays the tensions in families when some are Christian and others are not.

Recommends it for: Fans Of Lori Wick
Reagan Sullivan knows her way around New York, but nothing has prepared her for the land of armadillos, quick draws, and Texas twangs. Spirited and fun, she lands a job out West—but clearly is not out to land a husband. When Reagan meets Cash, she is intrigued with his faith and high esteem for family. Taken with Texas ranching—and a certain Texan—she reckons with her apprehension regarding marriage and family.

Recommends it for: Christian romance fans
This is my favorite of the Rawlings brothers' books. Not so much because of Cash (I still like Dakota better) but because I would LOVE to play Reagan! It reminds me of a story I'm working on and the whole working to earn trust thing. What I like best is how neither of them realized at first that their love was mutual. Priceless!

Clean, very Christian, wild west Texas, romance.
This third book in the series wrapped things up nicely.
The flow of this book was better than the previous two and the plot made more sense.
No sex, no swearing, mild violence

Yellow Rose Trilogy, about three brothers who come to Christ and find love. I read these over and over and don't mind that they are predictable to me. It's like having a conversation with an old friend that will come to a satisfactory end.

A great read to end the series. Simple but God's message is shared.

I love her yellow rose trilogy the best, but this female character is easily one of my favorites out of all of her books. Reagan Sullivan is one of those characters you strive to be more like.

I listened to the book while machine quilting. That means I miss some words as the machine is quite loud. I enjoyed the uplifting story of determination, kindness, service, and love.

A good read with a christian baseline. This book had a little romance and I would recommend it as a quick read.
A nice wrap up of a good series. I just wish the writing would not have seemed so forced. Definitely not the most well-written book I have read from Mrs. Wick.
