Review: To Catch a Texas Cowboy (Wishing, Texas #2) by Julie Benson


Grace Henry needs a reboot. Laid off and unable to find a new job in her native NYC, Grace heads West to Wishing, Texas to run her best friend’s bed and breakfast. But before she hits the city limits, to her luck, Grace rear ends the chief of police’s truck. As the mouth watering western dream peels off his shirt to clean her cut, she reminds herself what cops are like—cynical, inflexible, curious and controlling. Her NYPD father taught her that fact.

FBI agent AJ Quinn is undercover in Wishing to catch a forger. Though his best friend lives in Wishing and he always longed to buy land there, Wishing is an annoying detour from his purpose, working major cases and fulfilling the vow to his father to make a difference in the world. But when Grace crashes into his life, AJ suddenly finds himself questioning his direction and determination to remain single.

Though Grace and AJ insist they don’t want a relationship and are wrong on too many levels to count, when the head says no, the heart says yes…..

My Review:

With her business reputation on the line and unable to find a job in NYC, Grace Henry decides it’s time to move to Wishing Texas to help run her friend Cassie's B&B, The Bluebonnet Inn.  As soon as she gets into town, the brakes on her car give out and she slams into the back of a pickup truck.  Only she could start off her new life in Wishing by rear-ending, and then insulting the chief of police, AJ Quinn.

AJ came to Wishing two months ago to help his friend Jack break a forgery case.  When Jack dies in a plane crash, AJ takes over Jack's position as chief of police while still working undercover for the FBI.  As soon as he cracks the case, he will be able to leave Wishing and get back to his life.

The last thing Grace wants is a relationship with a cop.  But it seems the forces are working against her and she soon finds herself drawn to this sexy small town police chief.  How long with Grace and AJ be able to fight the strong attraction that is growing between them? 

This is an enjoyable story with a lot of depth to it.  The characters and storyline keep your attention until the very end.  I look forward to reading more in this series.
