This isa good romance but I found it too short. I would've loved to see the characters grow a little more before the book ended.
Wonderful Quick Read
Great story with romance, mystery, and murder. I liked the old west setting.
Stilted and amateurish writing. The author could use the help of an editor who can get rid of all the fragmented sentences. The too many (and seriously -much too detailed) descriptions of the two main characters having sex seemed an odd contrast to the sort of family-vibe of the story. It's like it's a book about this lovely couple and their little girls but the story was so boring the author felt the need to graphically describe their sexual activity every other page. Ms. Woolfe lost a big opportunity to create a much better storyline and ended up with a cheap, trashy dime novel.
