Book Review: Wild Forever by Cat Cahill
Wild Forever by Cat Cahill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A sweet frontier romance, this clean read kept me interested from cover to cover. I wanted to know what made the heroine flee her home. I wanted to know how all the problems would be resolved in the end. The villains were villainous and the heroes were heroic without being overpowered. I liked that the sheriff didn't seem overly large and muscular, but appropriate for a crack-shot cowboy type of character. The heroine's feisty temper made for a funny moment or two and I was certainly rooting for her. If I can manage it, I'll read more books in this series. If they are as entertaining as this one was, they'll be worth the time. Y'all should check them out if you enjoy clean, frontier romance.

Book Review: No Way Up by Mary Connealy
No Way Up by Mary Connealy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this story set in the New Mexico territory. The adventure was fun and I was completely surprised when the mysteries were solved about the property and its owners. The plot seemed to be well done to me. The interaction between the hero and heroine was quite interesting and Heath turned out to be my favorite character with Justin coming in second.
It's really hard to get a person who's never had the benefit of roots that go deep in one place to understand the connection one can feel to family /and/ place. I feel that way about the place where I grew up. It was nice to have someone else who knew what that was like write it into a story because it really is hard to explain.
The romance angle is there but it's almost not the main point of the story. I have to confess to really liking how it was woven into the daily life of the setting. Something natural took place in a natural way without being crude or unbelievable.
There were very few things about this book that I didn't like. I thought the back and forth between the characters went on a little too often, though it did fit with the characters involved.
I would love to read more in this series. The first book was truly entertaining.

Neither of these authors are on Twitter but they both have websites which I've linked to in the respective section title. I hope you'll visit their sites and support them if you enjoy historical western romances.
I think I'll keep extra comments to a minimum this month and next so I can focus more on my WIP. I hope you'll stay tuned for the reviews and to see how my Preptober and Nanowrimo goals turn out. Thanks so much for your continued support and encouragement!
Until next time...
