Trip Hall had left Shirley, Wyoming, the day after high school graduation, eager to get out of the small, stifling town. He had made it big in Hollywood as a stuntman, until his career came crashing down after an accident. His fiancé left him because of his accident and left their son in his care.

Always a Cowboy is a fun, light-hearted and poignant novel about learning to trust again. I enjoyed the fact that Trip was a father. It is not often that you see a man willingly take on the role of fatherhood. The story moves fairly quickly and Beth and Trip’s relationship progresses at a steady pace. It was a novel that had everything in it: romance, suspense, fantasy and mystery. It can be read by any genre lover, since all genres are present in the novel!
