The Texas Two-Step romantic comedy series is a reader favorite. All of the stories in the series are sweet, charming and emotional contemporary romance. Each story in the series stands alone, but all Texas Two-Step novels and novellas feature love stories about members of the Nelson, Murphy or Palmer families — and sometimes, more than one!

When Kelli Palmer meets Bobby Gray Nelson at a family get-together, their attraction is immediate. But Kelli’s kid sister already has dibs on Bobby Gray.

Bobby Gray Nelson never takes no for an answer, a resolve that made him a rodeo champion.

But Kelli is standing her ground.

Now Bobby Gray must do something he’s never done: woo the woman who’s already claimed his heart, and earn permission to place his brand on hers.

Country Courtship is the third sweet romance in the Texas Two-Step contemporary romance series from USA Today bestselling author Kathy Carmichael.
Previously titled: Kissing Kelli

“I have always had a hard time leisurely reading any of Kathy Carmichael’s books and this one was no exception. This delightful story is sure to please her many and varied fans!”
~ Kathy Boswell, Fresh Fiction

Another beautifully sweet romance from Kathy Carmichael. I simply adore this series. Country Courtship is sweet, funny, and incredibly romantic. I highly recommend it.

Country Courtship (The Texas Two-Step, #2)Country Courtship by Kathy Carmichael
My rating: 4 of 5 starsFirst of all, do not let the four-star rating disturb you. There is not a thing wrong with this fun and engaging “clean romance.” Kathy has written a fantastic, easy-to-read, fast-paced book, and the only thing I can even criticize is that is predictable. And to be honest, I don’t see this as a problem. I have not read any other books in the series, and I had no trouble following the storyline. The characters are well-developed, and to be honest, this would make a great Hallmark film. In fact, this could be described as a Hallmark film in book form. However, unlike a movie, the reader can use his/her imagination, and of course, the story doesn’t have the same pitfalls as a film might.

I really have nothing else to say about this delightful book except that if you wish to escape for an hour or two into the world of sweet romance with a handsome cowboy and two beautiful but sometimes perplexing sisters, this is the book to choose. I had no trouble reading it in one evening, and I never found myself bored. And if I don’t miss my guess, Kathy has quite a series going, and I can hardly wait to read more about these wonderful characters and their unique stories.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
