ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Christine lives with her husband and two precious daughters in the foothills of the beautiful Ozark Mountains in her home state of Arkansas. Her greatest earthly joy is her family and, aside from doing God’s will, spending time with them is her top priority.
She recently took a break from writing romance to pen a Christmas story with a twist. Her Mom Lit novella, My True Love Gave to Me, is part of a 2 in 1 anthology from Barbour entitled All Jingled Out. It’s also included in Simply Christmas, a 4 in 1 Barbour anthology.
She has written two other novellas, both romance, which are included in Barbour anthologies, City Dreams, and Prairie County Fair and a serial for the Heartsong Presents book club newsletter – The Carousel Horse. The Carousel Horse can be read in its entirety on the Heartsong website, and you can read excerpts from all of her other books on her website, HERE
In 2003, Christine was honored by being voted #2 Favorite New Author by the Heartsong Presents Book Club members!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Actress Crytal McCord gave up the closeness of her big family in order to make a name for herself on the New York City stage. But when life in the Big Apple turns sour, she follows a country road back to her parents Arkansas ranch.
The last thing she expects to find in cowboy country is a new leading man. Still, she can't help but imagine handsome rancher Jeremy Buchanan in the role.
Unfortunately, Jeremy's been burned by Crystal's type before. Or has he? Every time he thinks he knows her, the multi-faceted woman surprises him. Will the reluctant pair allow their hearts to guide them, or will their common stubborn pride keep them miles apart?

Although I'm a city girl through and through, living on a ranch near a small town was very appealing in this book. Life can change in the blink of an eye, and guilt can drive us away from God regardless of our environment. And sometimes coming home involves more than packing our belongings.
I had the pleasure of briefly meeting Christine Lynxwiler at the Christian Book Expo. What a sweetheart! Although there wasn't an opportunity to do more than "meet & greet" her (and take the picture above), it was evident that this is a lady who cares about others and has a heart for sharing God's love through her books.
I have a copy of The Reluctant Cowgirl and Christine's previous book, Along Came a Cowboy (another delightful read!), to give to one of you! Leave a comment on this post by noon CDT tomorrow (Tuesday 4/21) and I'll draw a winner. Continental US residents only, please.
