I downloaded the first book: Spurs & Lace and couldn't put it down. The beginning was so exciting I had a permanent smile on my face, the thought of that big hunk Slate laying on a doctor's reception floor just had me "floored" so to speak. I think the characters are great and the story line is brilliant. I was a bit disappointed, as I neared the finish of the book, that we weren't going to find out what happened to Slate and Becky. Upon finishing the book I immediately downloaded this continuation. I have to admit that I loved this book as much as the first. I think the story is great and was so pleased that Robbie came up trumps in the end. However, I was disappointed that this book didn't continue on from the first book with regard to Slate and Becky. I would have loved to hear how their "first official date" went and also how their romance eventually flourished. This book doesn't give much indication as to their situation. Also, not much was mentioned about her father, did he managed to pay all his debts? Or should I say did Becky manage to. I also thought that three year old children are chatter boxes but some of the phrases this little lad Mac came out with were a bit adult. But, I still loved it as much as the first and cannot wait for the next book: Sorrows & Lace. I hope this book tells us that Slate and Becky get married and have children and likewise regarding children for Robbie and Amelia. If you like romance and cowboys you will love these books. A most definite buy. Thank you.
