Review: The Bull Rider’s Homecoming by Allie Pleiter

 

 

Book review

Will the drive for fame and fortune ruin his future happiness?

Luke Buckton’s plan to return to his hometown of Martins Gap, Texas, is derailed by one fateful ride. The only person he trusts to get him back in shape and ready to ride again is the one person who has the most reason to hate him—Ruby Sheldon.

When an injury brings her a new client in the form of the man who broker her heart, Physical Therapist Ruby Sheldon is set on proving she’s over him. Luke always had a special hold on her. But he also left without a backward glance.

There are a lot of connecting themes woven throughout The Bull Rider’s Homecoming—family, seeking fame and glory instead of God, healing, love, and letting go of one dream to realize a greater one.

 

And Allie Pleiter handles each one brilliantly while giving readers glimpses into the excitement and danger of Luke’s chosen profession as well as the tension between two people bent on protecting their bruised hearts.

The Bull Rider’s Homecoming is an enjoyable and thought-provoking ride.

Can two people, with the help of an entertaining, energetic, and observant little girl, heal and obtain a life full of hope?

Trotter creates a world that draws the reader in. One where you will want to hug Jules one minute and shake her to tell her to wake up and look around her the next. The addition of Andi Carsen brings many laughs and smiles to a story that is sometimes filled with the hard truths of life.
