Review: A Child’s Christmas Wish by Erica Vetsch




May Contain Spoilers

I am so glad that I discovered Erica Vetsch. This is the second Love Inspired Historical I’ve read by her, and I really enjoyed it. At first I wasn’t so caught up in the plot – yet another fire disaster leaves heroine Kate and her elderly relatives in a financial bind, and neighbor Oscar reluctantly offers to put them up at his house until they can figure out what to do. It seems that every western I have read recently in this line has had a fire burn down a house or a barn.

Review: Twins for the Texas Rancher by Marin Thomas


May Contain Spoilers

I grabbed Twins for the Texas Rancher after the library added two months of Western Romance to their collection. Having read Marin Thomas in the past, I started with the second book in her Cowboys of Stampede, Texas series. I vaguely remember starting the first book, it not holding my attention, and putting it down for another day. This one worked better for me, but mainly because the hero has some different challenges to overcome.

Review: The Cowboy and the Cop by Christine Wenger



May Contain Spoilers

I just looked at the cover and decided I wanted to read The Cowboy and the Cop. I haven’t read the author previously, and while this didn’t work completely for me, it was entertaining enough that I would read her again. Things kind of fell off the rails during the investigation into the cattle rustling, when there was just too much going on, making the plot hard to swallow.

Review: Twins for the Billionaire by Sarah M Anderson

May Contain Spoilers

I’ll be honest. The only reason I picked up Twins for the Billionaire is because I like the author’s writing style. That said, I don’t enjoy the billionaire books as much I like reading about cowboys and ranchers, or heck, even the nice, middle-class guy who lives next door. Or the emotionally wrecked rich guy from Tempted by the Cowboy. Eric was so agreeable, so vanilla, that I didn’t find him interesting, or the romance very compelling. When the hero’s mind set is that all problems can be solved by throwing money at them, well, I just don’t find that very engaging.

Review: Stealing the Cowboy’s Heart by Debbi Rawlins

May Contain Spoilers

Debbi Rawlins is a new author for me. She usually writes under the Harlequin Blaze imprint, one of my least favorite lines, so I haven’t picked up one of her books before. Since Harlequin Western Romance is my favorite line, and this title appeared at the library, I just grabbed it and dove right in. Not everything worked for me, but I would read another title by her in the future.

Review: Frontier Want Ad Bride by Lyn Cote


May Contain Spoilers

Since we will soon see the end of Harlequin’s Love Inspired Historical line, I have been reading them as the library acquires them. There is always a waitlist for them, so I don’t understand why Harlequin is pulling the plug on the line, but it is what it is. I happened to be browsing the catalog when Frontier Want Ad Bride was added, so I was the first to check it out. Read more
