4.0 out of 5 stars SHARON SALA WRITES HEROS TO DIE FOR! 7 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
BACK COVER: Leaving her hometown of Mirage, TX, is the hardest decision Rachel Austin has ever made. But after losing her parents, and then her family's home, staying would be too painful. Leaving, though, means saying goodbye to Houston Bookout and the magnificent love they have shared since childhood ... a love that is, for the first time, not enough. Alone in New York City with little more than her breathtaking half-Cherokee beauty, Rachel gets the break of a lifetime. Rocketing to the top of the modeling world, she soon has money and fame beyond her wildest dreams. Life seems perfect-until she discovers that all the attentions cannot erase her lonely longing. Not until she comes close to losing everything can Rachel see what truly matters - and the one thing, the only thing, she really needs ...
If you have read and enjoyed any of Sharon Sala's/Dinah McCall's previous books, you'll love this one, too! Heart-melting romance, gut-clinching emotion, and a hero to die for!

4.0 out of 5 stars Story grabbed me in the first 5 pages and didn't let go! 1 8 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book almost without putting it down! The love between the H/H was so deep and complex, and done so well. I felt so completely taken by Rachel and Houston and their efforts to overcome what could have been a total disaster. Her leaving and her accident--his complete devastation at her going and then stepping in to help her thru. What a guy! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a gripping love story!

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent read, though nothing special 16 Jun 2000
By Sarah - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Touchstone is an average book to read. There were no surprises and everything was pretty much spelled out as the story went along. Houston and Rachel are luke-warm characters and I couldn't seem to get into what Rachel was all about. Character development was at a minimum in this book, with Rachel being cast as the stereotypical, self-absorbed person. This selfishness was too blatant to garner much sympathy from the reader. She lives her life under the premise of: life-has-been-so-hard-on-me-and-you-are-the-only-good-thing -that-happened-to-me-so-I-am-leaving-you, and that logic escapes me.
Literary-wise, everything that happens seems to be just the next step to further the plot. There were very few extraneous events, and those that do happen, come across as wholly unrealistic and contrived. The choices that Rachel makes would land her in jail, or homeless somewhere. With no money, no job, no portfolio, no apartment, and no friends, she would never survive more than a few days in New York City. The circumstances that she finds herself in stretch the realm of credibility a little too far.
Unlike other criticisms that I've heard about this book, I like the time we spend in the villain's point of view. Psychology is not my strong point, so I do not know how accurate the ideas, thoughts and actions of this person were, but they added spice to the story and kept my interest keen. What is this person going to do, and why are they thinking that way? Once again, though I liked some of the characters, and the plot had some redeeming factors, overall, I felt that everything which happened was a little too convenient and a little too unrealistic to be a great read.

I loved the book, the character development, the storyline, and the action and suspense. I read it in one day. It kept me riveted.
