And another wonderful story by Ms Sandlin! Yes I know it's a short story, but even her short stories have a way of making you love the characters, get caught up in their lives, and root for their HEA!! Before I get really into it, I have two questions... Is Zack's family related to Rene's- you know from the "other series"? And if so, I bet they are but, could you find room for one of those HAWT pieces for me? I don't live too far ya know!! Lol ok now for the big talk. This story got me because it's sweet and fun but it's also about living with the death of a loved one and learning to actually live. Damned if I didn't tear up twice!
So after a tragedy, Faith is literally trying to salvage both her career and her life. She's using the last little bit of money to try to study some of the birds affected by an oil spill- yes I live here and can attest to it's aftermath- and she somehow finds herself down in the BFE's- let's say that's Cajun talk for middle of nowhere and it's unabbreviated term is inappropriate lol! She lands herself in Zack Prejean's yard begging for a rental boat and a guide. Let's just say she has no idea how much her life will change because of this. Though Faith is struggling to regain her normalcy, you can tell she is goal oriented, cares about her career and the wildlife it contains, and is sweet and easy going. You will also learn she's strong, brave, loyal, and can handle a gun lol I like her a lot! I hope we get to see more of her one day!
Zack, well, he may be a HAWT piece but he's got a chip on his shoulder. He may be back home to help his father but he doesn't want to be there and he's making sure everyone knows about it. He's so rude to Faith partly because of this chip and partly because he's attracted to her. His rudeness is also halted by Faith who also won't be bullied. Giggle! Zack is family oriented, he's definitely a hard worker, and when he believes in something, he'll go above and beyond to prove it! Maybe he has a HAWT cousin for me :)
there's also some very interesting side characters, a really great little plot twist, and a wonderful lesson that sometimes love really is enough!! Ooooh and there's a new little twist on the supernatural elements in here and I LOVE THEM!!! I want some more :) gimme gimme! Also, I just happen to obsessively love this author and her mad ninja writing skills! She'll make you forget you're reading a short story and transport you to a place not to far from me and my hometown... Yes I can talk to you about eating gator and shrimping lol!! So with that, I won't spoil the surprise and I'll keep it simple with a WONDERFULLY ROMANTIC 5 WOLF PAWS, cuz I don't wanna tell you what is really clawing it's way around :)
