    He Might be a Counterfeit Cowboy, but this Story is the Real DealFrom the time his stepfather kicked him out of the house, Jesse Baker survived using his wits. Trained to be a confidence man by an older lad, Jesse managed to avoid the law until a scam earned him five years in prison. Now released he’s on a quest to take care of a promise he made to a cell mate. I really sympathized with Jesse’s dilemma. No matter how much he wants to go straight, his cross-country train journey will test his resolve. First there’s beautiful Erin O’Grady, an easy mark who has no idea how vulnerable she is. Then there’s Pete, the street urchin who sees through Jesse’s cowboy disguise and blackmails him into pretending to be his older brother. With every mile, his lies stack higher and higher.I truly enjoyed this winsome story full of strong characters on an exciting trip across 1890 America.

    A child pickpocket, a confidence man recently released from prison, and a Boston socialite with a big heart make an unlikely trio on the train a few days before Christmas.I loved how Lacy Williams brought this story to life. I could see and hear the crowds on the station platform, the crowded train as Erin manoevered with her many Christmas presents, and of the blizzard as it whirled and swirled...I could feel it's chill too! I could also hear Erin gentle voice as she read aloud from the gospels the Christmas story.I loved Erin's big heart and how she reached out to others, I ached for Jesse as the guilt of his past hung heavy on his heart...and cheered as struck out for a better way, and I loved Pete, that rascal of a boy who just wanted to be noticed and loved for himself.

    The Counterfeit Cowboy is a charming tale of a man fresh out of prison and a naive but kind-hearted woman fleeing her restrictive father. Jesse wants to changes his ways but he's a man of no means. Erin takes him and his brother under her wing on her trip west to visit her brother. Friendship blossoms as do sparks of romance, but will the secret he's keeping drive a wedge between him and Erin? Lacy Williams has penned another intriguing western that kept me riveted to the pages. I didn't want to put the book down to tend to things that needed my attention. Her writing just keeps getting better and better.

    I really wanted to love this story as I loved the prior novel in this series. I was somewhat disappointed. The plot line was believable, the characters were genuine, the love story was charming. In fact there was multiple love stories...man\woman, father\daughter, mother\son, brother\sister, man\man, person\God, and for their selves... NOT all love stories are romantic. But something got lost for me perhaps it was the author's choice (or editor or publisher) to throw in too many hundred dollar words it became like they were trying too hard to impress.

    This book was a harder book to get through for me, the first ten chapters were quite frankly boring, there wasn't much there to keep my attention. I also hated how she was being lied to from chapter 1-10 and then even from there she didn't find out everything until almost the end of the book. From the 15th chapter on it was pretty good but I still didn't care for all the lies and quite frankly the way Jesse (the male character) kept holding his secrets the worse it got and they kept repeating the same things over again. I didn't like how Jessie didn't have much of a spiritual journey basically he learned through the book but didn't fully understand or even want to understand until the last two chapters. One thing I did enjoy though was Erin (the female character) she was kind, caring, loving and she lived out her faith. All and all this book I give two and a half stars stars and truly I don't recommend this book unless you have already bought it, if you have read it, because it isn't so bad that you can't get through it but I don't recommend going out and buying it.

    Jesse Baker plans one more job so he can have a fresh start after his stint in prison as he boarded a train to Chicago but he had not planned on running into Erin O'Grady. Socialite Erin O'Grady just wants a break from her controlling father and decides on an impromptu trip to visit her brother and his family for Christmas and encounters Jessie as she's trying to board a train. With Jesse's help they make it on and Jesse picks up a shadow along the way. Though things start out as a farce for Jesse and Erin, God has healing and plans for more than any of them can imagine!

    Really a sweet story. I loved the characters and finished the book in less than a day, just a couple of sittings. It's a standalone novel, no cliff-hanger ending.I would have liked to hear more about what Jesse and Erin ended up doing - I will say it seemed an awful quick switch to how the story all wrapped up, from where the characters had been previously - but I was still pleased with the wrap-up.

    A recently released from prison con artist and a socialite who needs to get away from her father meet at the train station and take a trip to Wyoming from Boston. Add in the little pickpocket Pete who blackmails his way into being acknowledged as a little brother. This story was full of drama and was hard to put down. Lacy Williams did a fine job on this one.

    Genre: Christian romance. A very sweet story about a generous, caring woman and a man down-on-his-luck.

    Loved this story, so warm and full of page turning quality. Also thought the ending, where both characters have to fight for their HEA, was very well done.
