"Exhilarating, like a swift ride through river rapids with a spunky, sexy gal handling the oars."—Washington Post Book WorldIn Pam Houston's critically acclaimed collection of strong, shrewd, and very funny stories, we meet smart women who are looking for the love of a good man, and men who are wild and hard to pin down. "I've always had this thing for cowboys, maybe because I was born in New Jersey,” says the narrator in the collection’s title story. “But a real cowboy is hard to find these days, even in the West.” Our heroines are part daredevil, part philosopher, all acute observers of the nuances of modern romance. They go where their cowboys go, they meet cowboys who don't look the part – and they have staunch friends who give them advice when the going gets rough. Cowboys Are My Weakness is a refreshing and realistic look at men and women – together and apart.

2.0 Cowboys Are My Weakness: Stories
overall i was disappointed with this book and her characters; i found it to be pretty repetitive. it's possible that waltzing the cat was equally unvaried, but if it was, the writing carried that book through in a way she doesn't manage as well in this one.
