A Cowboy To Remember

Kensington. (Cowboys of California, Bk. 1). Feb. 2020. 320p. ISBN 9781496725400. pap. $7.99;. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
The amnesia trope gets a pop culture–infused update in this second-chance romance featuring reality-star chefs, ranch resorts, Instagram feuds, and Hollywood royalty. Evie Buchanan grew up riding horses with her stuntwoman grandmother, but after she wins a reality cooking show, her life is packed with cohosting duties and glamorous parties. That is, until a bitter competitor pushes Evie down the stairs and she’s left with a head wound and complete amnesia. The obvious place to hide out while she recovers is the California ranch owned by the closest people she has to family, including her first love, Zach Pleasant. As her body heals, she reconnects with the family she can’t remember leaving and develops feelings for the man she spent years avoiding.
VERDICT Readers who enjoy the soap opera–like drama of an amnesia story will immediately be intrigued by Weatherspoon’s (“FIT” trilogy) new series launch. The emotionally satisfying tale of forgiveness and reconciliation gives Evie’s story broad appeal.
