Sheriff Fitz Hall does not trust women
from big towns to ever be happy in small towns. So when
Shirley’s newest resident, Ree, comes to run a bookstore
left to her by inheritance, Fitz awaits the day she will
become bored and leave. But distancing himself from the
little whirlwind redhead seems to be virtually impossible.
Ree feels at home in Shirley, Wyoming,
as soon as she arrives. After having a detached upbringing,
the small town everyone-knows-everyone is very appealing to
her. She loves her bookstore, the town's people, and the
independence of being on her own.
Ree and Fitz meet under some very
unusual circumstances and they seem to gravitate towards
each other whether they wish to or not afterward. Ree is
thriving on the friends she is making in Shirley. Fitz can’t
believe that someone as new age as Ree could ever be happy
in a small town setting for long. Crazy for the Cowboy
is a heartwarming story I loved, with Ree and Fitz battling
their minds over what their heart’s desire is telling them.
Cindy Spencer Pape did an excellent job creating two very
independent characters along with the ghostly appearances to
guide this willful couple together.
