Shiloh Run Review- The Cactus Creek Challenge by Erica Vetsch

Good, HOT afternoon folks!! WOW, it's warm here!! And by warm, I mean 96 and a high humidity level. Ugh. Of course, in January we'll all be complaining about cold and snow so I'll revel in it while I can!



It started out as a simple challenge-but is that really all it is?

Anything he can do, I can do better. At least that was what Cassie Bucknell thought before she pinned on Ben Wilder’s badge and took to patrolling the streets of Cactus Creek, Texas. Cassie has been in love with Ben since primer school, but Ben treats her like a little sister. When they are picked to swap jobs for a month as part of the annual Cactus Creek Challenge in their Texas hometown, the schoolhouse is thrown into an uproar, the jail becomes a temporary bank vault, and Cassie and Ben square off in a battle of wills that becomes a battle for their hearts.


               *My Thoughts*

Oh my word! I LOVED this book!! And the more I say that, the more I love it. It is my absolute favorite western now! 

I ALMOST stumbled upon this book by accident. I actually was in NetGalley Heaven and requested "The Convenient Brides Collection". As I was reading it, I stumbled across a Novella that I thoroughly enjoyed by Erica Vetsch. I loved her so I searched for her books and found this one and one other story in my possession! Yay!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I read the name. It certainly is not your typical romance title. Actually, not much about the book was typical either. It was amazing!

Contrary to what the back cover might say, this is two stories in one! I really loved the characters. Cassie's personality was fantastic-and her situation was really tough. I think just about every girl has maybe gone through her exact situation. "Unrequited love". A really tough thing and yet, this cowgirl could overcome just about anything-with a little humor too! Ben...was a little more confused. Throughout the whole story, I was wondering what was going to happen next. It was absolutely nerve-wracking at points.And yet,when I stepped through the bakery door I was laughing so hard I relaxed, if that makes sense. Carl and Jenny's impending relationship-or non-relationship, was much more free flowing and I never knew what would happen. 

The humor in this book was not forced at all. You might think that comedy, westerns, and romance are three different subject. In this book, it's like a rough cut diamond-so many beautiful sides!

I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed this book and don't think anything can make it better!


            *My overall thoughts*

The Cactus Creek Challenge by Erica Vetsch  is the book that has changed my mind about westerns. Apparently, I love them! This one is packed with humor, love, and enough cowboys to make Mary Connealy proud.

               *My Rating*

I give The Cactus Creek Challenge by Erica Vetsch...


5 stars!! 


 *Where to get it*

*I received this book from the Netgalley, publisher, and the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given. All thoughts were my own and I was not compensated in any other way.

Happy Reading,
