Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  TKono
"Cowgirl Dreams" by Heidi M. Thomas is an adventurous novel. The main character Nettie aspires to be a rodeo star. She abhors domesticity and yearns to be more than just a housewife someday. Nettie gets involved in altercations as her mother is against her participating in rodeos. Still, Nettie finds a way to ride and even meets famous female riders. The descriptions of western life in the 1920s is fabulous, and readers will root for the underdog that is Nettie.

The book starts out with action, leads to drama, goes back to action, and then delves into romance. Kissing is mentioned, and consummating a marriage is included. There are no details, but readers get the gist. Vocabulary-wise, readers may have to look up five verbose words at the most and a couple of horse equipment terms. While anyone could read this book, it will probably be more enjoyed by female readers.

Subtle romance
