Fantastic Western Romance
Cowboy, Cross My Heart - Donna Grant

Cowboy, Cross My Heart by Donna Grant is an amazing western romance.  Ms. Grant has delivered a well-written book.  The characters in this story are stellar, I love them.  Naomi is visiting her friend and photographing the rodeo events.  Brice is a cowboy and just bought his a ranch and he's participating in the rodeo.  Brice and Naomi's story is loaded with drama, spice, action and suspense.  This book hooked me at the first page and held me captive until the end.  I loved it and look forward to reading more from Donna Grant in the future.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Cowboy, Cross My Heart - Donna Grant

The second book in the Heart of Texas series takes place 12 years after the first one, Christmas Cowboy Hero, where Abby and Clayton get together.  In that book Caleb and Brice were young teenagers and Brice was in trouble for cattle rustling on the East ranch.  Now the two brothers are all grown up and living their lives and Abby and Clayton have two kids with a third on the way.  Naomi left Texas to pursue her photography dream and college.  She has come back to visit her best friend who she discovers is holding onto some very dark secrets about the Rodeo Pageant life, but she won’t tell Naomi for fear of reprisals by the very powerful men who are at the head of the horrible events Whitney and other Pageant girls have suffered. When Naomi goes to the rodeo to cheer on her friend she sees Brice compete and she can’t keep her eyes off him.  When he comes to her rescue as she and Whitney are attacked, it starts the ball rolling on one fast-paced adventure where they work together to bring to light the things that have been going on for years.  People are hurt along the way, there are tense moments of conflict, the plot is strong and moves quickly, and their love story also moves quickly (almost too quickly), but the plot and conflict make that not as much of a big deal as it would be otherwise. I did enjoy their story a lot and was not disappointed at all in how book 2 progressed and ended.  I want more from the Easts and friends.

The Time to Kill - Mason Cross

slight, slight chance I’ll finish this tonight because it’s so addictive...but, more realistically, I get it done tomorrow morning. the plot is not the most original - Bourne movie fans, and Jack Reacher fans, are familiar with this “hunter and hunted” scenario - but this version of the chase has its own wrinkles and twists, and I’m very happy with my first Mason Cross experience.

very suspenseful, and I love it. it seems I’ve discovered yet another Spy/Action series where I want to read all the books. stacking too many of these...but it’s not a bad problem to have.

I like it - style, story, characters: all strong. as far as Summer of Spies goes, and whether this qualifies or not - well, yeah, it’s not the archetype of all Spy novels, more like a variant, but that’s usually interesting too. happy to be giving this author a go; working out well, so far.

 um, apologies, in advance, for the fact that the next book I’ll (probably) be reading is called Dead Horsemeat. yeah yeah, I know...blechy updates and cover images coming not long from now. but we’ll deal with it, together, when the time comes.
