Publisher's Summary

All Tap and Pepper Andrews want to do is settle down, buy a small ranch, get a few head of cattle, and start raising a family. But nothing is ever that easy for the ex-convict and his former dance-hall girl trying to break from the past. It seems no matter where they go or what they do, the past is already there ahead of them.

Tap's job as brand inspector for the cattle association keeps him smack in the middle of trouble. One day he's holding off rustlers, the next he's baby-sitting Texas ranchers and trying to clear his name of murder charges. Every day he tries to keep from getting shot and worrying Pepper into birthing the baby too soon. It's a lot to ask from a man with a new horse that won't stay still long enough for him to get in the saddle. There's all that, and the real trouble is just about to start.

Back in the saddle again!

Who was the most memorable character of My Foot's in the Stirrup, My Pony Won't Stand and why?

Lorenzo Odessa. A new character from Tap's past that is a welcome friend that shares the same sordid past but is also a man of character. Not only do they have a common past, but they also both have horses that are cantankerous and uncooperative.

Any additional comments?

A great story line resolving issues with old and new characters with plenty of twists, turns, and humor.

I thoroughly enjoy this series

Over and over. I confess I like to start and finish with book 6. 6, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
I smile so hard my jaw hurts.
