A Cowgirl's Dream | Book Review + Giveaway


An Aussie cowgirl far from home. A handsome Brazilian bull rider. Can they have a rodeo love story of their dreams?

Frankie dreams of being a champion barrel racer. When the opportunity of a lifetime knocks on her door, she moves halfway across the globe to chase it. After having her heart broken, she’s determined to focus on her ambitions. That means no time for cowboys, even if he is bloody cute.

Luciano is well on his way to getting everything he has ever dreamed of. That is, until an Aussie cowgirl crashes into his world, setting his soul on fire. He knows what it takes to get to the top and Frankie has it in spades. Now, all he has to do is convince her to see beyond the suave exterior and give him a chance.

Finally, Frankie has a shot at the championship buckle, but when photos appear of Luciano on the internet, she has to decide whether to stay or walk away. Is she kidding herself, can she have it all? Can Frankie find her courage to trust in love and still chase her cowgirl’s dream?

Get ready for a wild, romantic ride in Edith MacKenzie’s A Cowgirl’s Dream!

Frankie heads to Texas to make her barrel-racing dreams come true, determined to not let anything—or anyone—steal her focus. However, Brazilian bull rider Luciano makes it a challenge for her to stay committed to that mindset. Can she fall in love and still achieve her dreams? Or will she have to sacrifice one for the other?

The story that unfolds between Frankie and Luciano is certainly a fun one. The author’s experience with horses shines through the rodeo aspects, and Frankie and Luciano prove to be an easy couple to root for page after page. I only wish that some scenes had a little more development—because A Cowgirl’s Dream is such a quick, short read, some moments felt rushed or lacked the depth I would have liked to see.

Overall, an enjoyable afternoon cowgirl-romance read. Definitely worth checking out if you’re interested (especially if you have Kindle Unlimited!).

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Edith MacKenzie or Eddie Mac to her friends is an Australian author of sweet and wholesome contemporary cowboy romance. They say in literary circles to write what you know and Eddie has certainly taken that to heart. Before embarking on a writing career she trained horses professionally and brings that wealth of knowledge to her writing.

Now a mum to a boy and girl, as well as wife, she delights with her tales of strong cowgirls and their adventures in finding love. When not weaving the love stories of her characters, she enjoys hanging out with her family and animals, as well as reading, fishing and camping

Just remember: once a cowgirl, always a cowgirl.
