'A chicken will never break your heart' ... With that simple motto firmly fixed in her mind, journalist Libby Brown leaves big city life and her two-timing boyfriend behind determined to become a chicken rancher in rural Wyoming. The trouble is, she doesn't know a darn thing about chickens and soon comes to realize that transforming a ramshackle old farmstead into a modern chicken ranch is a lot of hard and sweaty work - especially with the added distraction of her sexy neighbour, rancher Luke Rawlins.

Libby might be hell bent on keeping Luke at arm's length, but his savvy, single minded and sexy new neighbour simply hasn't had time to figure out that Luke is a hundred times more tenacious than she is. From the moment he met Libby he'd vowed to make her a permanent part of his life. Luke figures he has all the time in the world to convince her - until sheriff Cash McIntyre comes calling with the same romantic notions in mind. Now time is of the essence, especially after Libby begins digging into the whereabouts of a young woman whose mother is convinced she's been murdered.

Everything about Kennedy's charming debut novel hits the right marks, from feisty and independent city slicker Libby and her stealth chickens (and assortment of other critters) to cattle rancher Luke Rawlins and his resolute intention to charm his new neighbour into becoming his wife. Toss in a murder mystery and you'll be hooked (although identifying the bad guy who's threatening Libby is easy to do). Cowboy Trouble is definitely a title you'll want to add to your spring reading list.
