Review: Montana Cowboy Family by Linda Ford
Montana Cowboy Family (Big Sky Country #2) - Linda Ford

Title: Montana Cowboy Family
Author: Linda Ford
Series: Big Sky Country, 2
Format: ebook
Length: N/A
Rating: 3 stars
Trigger warning: rape, abuse and molestation

 

Synopsis:
Temporary Family
After discovering one of her young students has been abandoned along with his sisters, schoolteacher Sadie Young whisks them away to the safest place she knows—her own home. And when handsome cowboy Logan Marshal vows to assist her in caring for the children, she isn't sure she wants his help…but she needs it. If she lets Logan get too close, though, he may discover the secret she's convinced will be her ruin.
Logan Marshall isn't looking for a family. But with the parentless children and their unflappable teacher tugging at his heart, it appears he has one—at least temporarily. The kids would like nothing better than to have a real mother and father, and with Logan slowly falling for Sadie, their deepest wishes just might come true…

 

Favourite character: Sammy
Least favourite character: Mr. Perrin

 

Mini-review
This was all over the place for me. I liked it but I didn't like it. It was a cute read, but the main character, Sadie, was raped four years before the book takes place and she believes lies about herself instilled by her mother. She doesn't trust men but then falls in love with the main guy despite that. This would've been fine for me if it didn't have scenes along the lines of "she recoiled at his touch" only to be followed by "she found herself attracted to him." (I'm paraphrasing, it wasn't that blatant.)
Other than that, it was okay.

Review: Montana Cowboy Daddy by Linda Ford
Montana Cowboy Daddy (Big Sky Country #1) - Linda Ford

Title: Montana Cowboy Daddy
Author: Linda Ford
Series: Big Sky Country, 1
Format: ebook
Length: 645 pages (iPhone)
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis:
The Rancher's Ready-Made Family
With a little girl to raise, widowed single father Dawson Marshall could sure use some help—he just didn't expect it to come from city girl Isabelle Redfield. Dawson has encountered city women before. He even married one. What if his little girl grows attached to Isabelle and the woman tires of ranch life just like his late wife did?
For heiress Isabelle, the fledgling Western town of Bella Creek, Montana, offers something more meaningful than her wealth: a chance to forge a useful life. But if she wants the townsfolk to value her for more than her money, she has to keep her identity hidden. A difficult feat, especially when it comes to the cynical cowboy whose sweet daughter she cares for after school. But will hiding the truth ruin her chance of earning Dawson's love?

 

Favourite character: Isabelle
Least favourite character: Dawson

 

Mini-review:
This was interesting. I liked this more than I usually like cowboy ranch stories, so that was nice. Dawson annoyed the crap out of me, but as he shares a name with my ex, that's understandable. But in all honesty, Dawson drove me nuts with his constant judgement of all city women based on one. Other than that, I liked it. Will be continuing the series.

Dawson Marshall - Luke Hemsworth

Penance Day

 

Book: I chose Luck of the Draw (Chance of a Lifetime #2) by Kate Clayborn. 

 

Task #1

My guilty pleasure reading is what I call the diseases and disasters genre. Doesn't matter if the disaster happened long ago or more recently, I just love to read a deep dive into those situations. Ditto for diseases. I also really like it when my fiction has diseases and disasters as part of the story and the characters have to overcome some serious stuff on their way to love and HEA. 

 

Non-fiction: Most of Michael Lewis' books, All the Devils Are Here, Polio: An American Story, Flu

 

Fiction: Homefront Hero and Mission of Hope by Allie Pleiter (former has Spanish flu plotline, the latter takes place right after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake)

 

Task #2

I know I am going to get some shit thrown my way, but my favorite team EVER is

My daughter's T-Ball team was the NYY and I was so happy to see her enjoy playing baseball while dressed out in my favorite team's jersey this summer. My heart hurt a little when they didn't beat the dirty socks in the playoffs, but there is always next year.
