Review of Escape to You

Escape to You (Montana Heat, #1)Escape to You by Jennifer Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Not having ever read Jennifer Ryan before, and not reading a lot of western romances, I didn’t have high expectations; I was pleasantly surprised! I will be seeking out the other stories in the series, and I expect to read this one again before I let it go.

Creative plotting, good-to-excellent character development, and this story does not commit one of my pet peeves, which is to wait until the last possible moment before you know if the characters are going to manage to stay together. I kept thinking that the heroine was going to run away to save the hero from danger, which I would have hated, but she listened to reason…hooray!

Being a romance, you have an idea going in what the ending will be, so it’s the journey that counts…the journey was fun, enjoyable, made sense (in a story-logic way) and had plenty of escapism, plus, the bad guys get what’s coming to them!

Review of Hidden Thorns

Hidden ThornsHidden Thorns by Melissa Bennett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a leisurely stroll through the development of a sweet romance between a terrified, fragile, very recently divorced devout Christian woman and the handsome, commitment-phobic detective who is trying to find the stalker who has shaken up her world. While the editing is not all it should be, the story itself is an emotional roller-coaster ride and has a lot to recommend it if this is your style of read.

Just read Cry Wolf

Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega, #1)Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love this series. These are my absolute favorite characters. I wouldn’t want to have suffered what Anna had to suffer, but in Charles I think she got the best consolation prize ever. The rest of the cast is loaded with individuals with quirks and foibles and their own strong voices. A trek across a mountain in winter? Not my first choice of honeymoon, but Briggs makes it work! Total winner. A+
