Welcome to my #Teatime review of The Cowgirl’s Sacrifice by Tina Radcliffe!

I’m so pleased you’ve joined us to talk about Tina Radcliffe’s newest release. Tina’s books are ALWAYS fun and inspirational. The Cowgirl’s Sacrifice is all this and more. Kate will grab your heart as you get to know her self-sacrificing spirit. I hope you love this story as much as I did. Please have an apple fritter from Eagle Donuts and a mug of coffee or a cup of tea.

ABOUT THE COWGIRL’S SACRIFICE

Making new dreams is never easy.

This cowgirl has wandered back home…Will she choose her past or her future?

Needing time to heal after a rodeo injury, Kate Rainbolt heads to her family ranch to accept the foreman job her brothers offered her months ago. But the position’s already been filled by her ex-boyfriend, Jess McNally, and the only open job reports to him. With Jess as her temporary boss—and turning into something more—might he finally convince Kate to put down roots?

MY REVIEW

Kate Rainbolt’s much-anticipated story is an absolute winner!

I love the Rainbolt brothers featured in the earlier Hearts of Oklahoma books, and author Tina Radcliffe’s last story in the series, The Cowgirl’s Sacrifice, was worth the wait! We finally get sister Kate’s romance! With intertwined pasts, a handsome cowboy and a wandering cowgirl must overcome complex issues to find grace and follow their hearts for a second chance at a happily-ever-after ending. A complete delight to read! 

Sheltered by protective older brothers, Kate Rainbolt took a courageous and unusual path to become a rodeo clown. When a traumatic accident temporarily sidelines her, Kate heads home hoping to recuperate while working at the family ranch.

After his estranged father’s death, Jess McNally returns to Oklahoma to be near his ailing mother. Employed as ranch foreman for Kate’s brothers, Jess McNally is conflicted when he becomes their sister’s boss. Years ago, he had plans to marry Kate, but she left him behind to pursue other dreams.

Tina Radcliffe’s books are always entertaining, filled with humor, touching characters and sweet romance. However, this return visit to Rebel Ranch in Oklahoma, provides an even higher level of enjoyment. My heart was warmed at Kate’s empathy for Jess’ niece, Olive, who shares a similar painful childhood. Kate’s compassionate and faith-filled personality shines throughout the book. I enjoyed her journey to a new beginning and truly admired her selfless gift of sacrificial love.

And of course there is food involved! We get virtual apple fritters from Eagle Donuts, a special cupcake from Daisy’s Pies and Baked Goods, and in this story, sweet nine-year-old Olive gives Kate cooking lessons, proving we all can learn if we have the right encouragement. (Recipes included on Tina Radcliffe’s webpage!) I highly recommend this latest story by one of my favorite authors.

Favorite quotes: 

“I guess anything beautiful comes with risks.”

After ten years as a tumbleweed, could she put down roots forever?

“This isn’t about paying a debt, “ Kate said. “This is about how sometimes you just know you’re on the correct path.”

*I was given a copy of this book with no requirement to write a positive review. I’m pleased to offer my honest opinion.

SCRIPTURE

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. ~~Philippians 1:6

The Cowgirl’s Sacrifice by Tina Radcliffe

Thank you for joining me for tea, apple fritters and my thoughts about Tina Radcliffe’s final book in The Hearts of Oklahoma series. I’ve enjoyed all the stories about the fascinating Rainbolt siblings, so it’s hard to say goodbye to Rebel Ranch, but I know this author has more heart-touching books to come. Tina Radcliffe is the queen of witty cowboy romance! If you want more information about Tina…..and recipes for the foods mentioned in the book, check out her website www.TinaRadcliffe.com.

What about you? Do you like the touches authors add to their stories…..foods, pets and kids? I hope you are having an inspired summer with good books, restful retreats and treasured moments.

With blessings and prayers,

Sherida
