  • Susan
    Very good story of opposites attracting. Whitney is a city girl who has overcome the objections of some of the townspeople to open her shop Leather and Lace. She is focused on getting the new store up and running, and trying not to be distracted by cowboy artist Josh. Josh has spent most of his life in Valentine Valley. He has his work on the family ranch and his leatherwork business to keep him busy. Whitney comes from a wealthy family that is n...

    I jumped in to the Valentine Valley series with book three, The Cowboy of Valentine Valley, without having read any of the previous books so I’ll admit I did have some confusion. The hero and heroine, Josh and Whitney, were introduced earlier and the series and their HEA was built to conclude in this novel so not having the back ground I would have if I started at book one did hurt my enjoyment, I think. Outside of that, I loved the story of lo...
  • Ann Lorz
    This is such a wonderful series. Each book makes me love the people of this town more and more. Josh is such a sexy man, you just want to take him home with you. He's also a good person who loves his family and friends. He's the perfect man for Whitney. She needs family in the worse way. You'll love the humor and love in this book. Can't wait for the next one.
  • Stasy
    Decent story, but it all wrapped up in about three pages, which makes for a bad ending.

  • Lover of Romance
    The Cowboy of Valentine Valley is the third installment of the Valentine Valley series. Now this is a new author for me, and I am really starting to like her writing. I tend to be picky about contemporaries, but throw a sexy cowboy in the mix, and I am hooked. Although after reading this one, made me wish I had read the second book. I wasn't too lost but as I was reading this story, I felt like it would be a advantage to read this series in order...

    This has been such a fun series to read! In this latest book, Josh Thalberg meets Whitney Winslow when she decides to feature some of his leather work in her new store. Whitney has had problems in Valentine because her shop is an upscale lingerie store and that rubbed some of the older residents the wrong way. Whitney has worked her way from "Wild Whitney", a party girl, to a respected businesswoman. When she meets Josh and decides to help him ne...

    3.5 CocktailsI began Cane's series a little backwards-I read #4 first and then The Cowboy of Valentine Valley (#3) second. Once again, I did not feel as though I was missing anything. Emma Crane is able to tell the story in such a way that the reader becomes immediately familiar with the Valentine Valley natives and all of their family members and connections.In this story, Josh Thalberg ( the cowboy--SWOON...) and his family have been well estab...

    As always, another zinger from Emma Cane! OH my Gosh, the part in the pasture where Josh and Whitney move the herds? HOT!!! I loved Josh, just as sexy as his brother Nate, and I thought it ironic that he was all concerned over Nate spreading himself thin in the first book when the tables turned in The Cowboy of VV and HE was overwhelming himself. I loved the church festival and Ferris ride. The widows antics crack me up. Whitney was different fro...
  • Melinda
    I'm beginning to like this series more and more. It's still not my usual book and while I understand the appeal of the cowboy aspect for heterosexual women, it's completely lost on my queer self. What I do appreciate is the emotions that Emma Cane pulls from the hero and the heroine. And those Grandmas are a hoot. I love that they are so involved in the community and that they are valued members of that community even if they are busybodies. I re...
  • Sassy Moms Say Read Romance
    Thanks to Tasty Book Tours and Emma Cane for the opportunity to read these two great stories. I truly enjoyed these two stories and can't wait to read the other books in the series. The Cowboy of Valentine Valley: Whitney came to Valentine to open a new store, she faced opposition, but Josh's support and agreement to make pieces for her store creates a business relationship. Whitney makes a pass at Josh eight months earlier, she leaves town and w...

    Whitney Winslow is back in Valentine Valley to set up her third store. She was originally turned down by the city counsel but somehow was able to obtain their permission. Unfortunately, she made a pass at Josh Thalberg who turned her down flat. She felt humiliated since she had never been rejectd before and left town. Eight months passed and she is finally back to pick out a property, get it ready, and open her store. When she runs into Josh Thal...

    I wanted a long time for the next installment in the Valentine Valley series, and reading this book was like a visit with old friends.For much of the first two books, I sort of viewed Josh as sort of the goofy, often irresponsible younger brother, but he definitely comes into his own. So far Adam is still my favorite Valentine hero, but Josh is right up there. The heat between him and Whitney is palpable from the first pages, and I love how Cane ...
  • Gail
    Sweet small-town romance. Heroine is the owner of a lingerie store she's trying to expand into a third location. Hero is a rancher and leather artist in the town where she wants to expand. She's already put the moves on him-- kissed him anyway, but he backed off because she was a little too tipsy. Now she wants to be strictly professional. But he and the other folks in town have other ideas. She helps him negotiate with a store owner to sell hand...
  • Laura Benn
    This was a great story about how opposites attract, and maybe they're not so different after all. I usually like to start at the beginning with a series, but I'm glad I jumped right into this one. The characters are all very likeable and the plot status interesting throughout. I'm glad that not every secret or issue was a fight between the main characters. They behaved like reasonable adults, for the most part, just like people in meal life do, f...
  • Sarah Haunani
    This book was very touching with the vision, patients and focus of each other's feelings that gradually grew into forever true love. I also liked your detailed description of the interior and exterior of each house, restaurants, bars, ranch, cattle dogs, the horses, the fountains with it's steam. Oh well... I could easily picture every thing in your stories. The vision of the beautiful mountains from a distance. I truly enjoyed this book.Valentin...

    Loved this one! Josh Thalberg is laid back, confident, talented and sexy as hell. When Whitney Winslow returns to Valentine Valley to get her new Leather and Lace location up and running Josh knows this may be his one chance to turn that amazing kiss they shared into something more. This is a great small town romance series and this book is a great one in the series. I definitely recommend it.
  • Aleksandra Branka
    Happy ever after, againHappy ever after, againI'm just a sucker for stories that end good. This one certainly does and I love it. Lovely easy reading. So relaxing and believable. Cannot wait for her next book. To all of you that like entertaining books, just grab it, read it and enjoy it. Or should I say - download it and enjoy it. Have good time doing it just like I did.y
  • Elizabeth
    This is the first Valentine Valley book that I've read and I enjoyed it, but had a little trouble getting into the story of Whitney and Josh. While the book works as a stand alone, it is obviously part of a series and the reader would most likely benefit from ready the prior two books first. There are a large number of secondary characters in the story and they add a great deal of color and depth, but it's almost too many people to keep track of ...

    This is Josh and Whitney's story. She is in Valentine Valley to set up a new business, though there are a few people who are drastically opposed to her business. She and josh are getting to know each other better, in spite of his sudden "celebrity status", when things are further complicated by Whitney's rich, self-centered family who only want to use her and collapse all her dreams.
  • Eileen
    So good to see Josh the youngest of the Thalberg's get his story. He has wanted Whitley and did the quiet, stealth thing and slowly got her attention. Just like a slow burn building until they finally ignited on the mountain. that was a great scene. I've enjoyed the Widows and seeing Nate, Emily, Brooke and Adam again. A really good series.
  • Michelle (Undeniably Book Nerdy)
    More like 3.5/5 stars. I like small town romances and this one was a cute read. The beginning felt slow with no real plot but the characters were likable, though nothing to really distinguish them from other characters in the genre. Josh was a sweet guy but little too perfect for my taste. Ultimately, it was a fun weekend read.
  • Christine Sottolano-stefanko
    It was ok. I like the first book the best. These subsequent books seem to be churned out cliches. An easy read. But not one of my favorites. Meh
  • Chris Brandstatter
    Another great book from the Valentine Valley. Wonderful romance!
