Review: Savage Winter
Savage Winter - Constance O'Banyon

Ugh! The angst in this story has increased tenfold from the last one. Another good read, even if the angst was a lot heavy. Joanna, Windhawk and Tag's stories have continued with some cameos by old enemies and the emergence of new ones. As usual, all of the drama could have been avoided if the two lovebirds had just communicated! Instead they chose to believe the lies of others rather than confront their significant other for the truth. The relationship swam to the very edge of toxicity and at one point even I was like enough already just break up or get back together; this awful in between place is too much!

 

In the end, we always get the happy ending and the beginning of new love, but for these characters, the story isn't finished. Their ongoing adventures continue in the next book.

Review: Savage Autumn
Savage Autumn - Constance O'Banyon

This is a re-re-re-read for me. I've been in the mood for historical romance lately, particularly America historical romance. I don't know what any current authors are writing and all my old-school favs seem to have comoletely changed up their style. It's always good to go back to what you know.

 

This was an oldie, but a goodie. I love to story of Joanna, Tag, and Windhawk. You feel so bad for the siblings having lost their mother and to be set up by greedy, no-good relatives. Having to flee their home and wealth just to preserve their lives. And to go through the arduous task of travelling by wagon train to get to their father, only to be set upon by a murderous chief and his reluctant warriors. The siblings are separated and both thinking the other is dead. Joanna falling in love with the mad she believed was responsible for her brother's death, and poor Tag taken captive by the man who murdered his sister.

 

This story has everything. Betrayal, escapes, fighting, kidnapping, rescue, revenge, death, love, miscommunication, angst, reconciliation. It's no wonder Savage Seasons is one of my favorite romance series!

Review: Under A Prairie Moon
Under a Prairie Moon - Madeline Baker

3.5 Stars.

 

This was not at all what I expected.  I was in the mood for a historical Indian romance, but I never expected ghosts, curses and time travel!  I just opened up a book with a title that sounded interesting and this is what I got.  The story was surprisingly interesting.  A man is betrayed and killed for a crime he didn't commit so he put a curse on the people who killed him and their land.  And boy did the curse ever stick!  Fast-forward 125 years to a woman who was recently widowed by a descendant of the cursed family, and she has now come into ownership of the very cursed ranch.

 

Somehow, after having haunted the place since his death 125 years prior, he finally meets someone who can see him.  After accepting the fact that she has a ghosting haunting her ranch, the two become friends.  She, Kathy, convinces him, Dalton, to tell her about his life so that she can write it all down.  Between spending time doing that and rebuilding the ranch, they fall in love and inexplicably get sent back to his time to right the wrongs done him and to take care of unfinished business.

 

I enjoyed the story even with all the modern-day mixed into it.  I never thought I would enjoy a time travel historical romance, but this pleasantly surprised me.  It was a sweet tale with a happy ending.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian - Sherman Alexie,Ellen Forney

It was an okay book. I found it quite hard to relate to, but I was rooting for him throughout the entire book. It felt a bit fast paced at times though.
