3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but could have been better! 9 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Women of Primrose Creek by Linda Lael Miller was not a bad book, but I found alot of things about these stories bothered me. Firstly the cover picture does not reflect the time or the women of the book (women didn't wear sleevless dress in 1860). Usually if an author makes a mistake with time, events, inventions (like having button on dresses in 13th C in historical romances) these don't bother me. However when an author can't even keep track of time in her own writing that's annoying. The Christy novel is set in 1868 and then the Sky novel starts in the fall of 1868 and the character Jake says has it really been a year since Christy left him at the alter and is about to give birth to Zachary's baby. Christy couldn't be ready to give birth in a few months! Also in Bridget's novel it says that Trace buried this friend Mitch (wrapped in a blanket) himself where he drowned and then in Megan's story it says that he was carried home in a pine box. Also the whole suspense of what it says in the family bible is thrown all over the place and only in Megan's novel does it actually tell you what it says. Does the author or her editor not catch these things! I found it aggravating that there were so many items of information not flowing smoothly.
I also found the novels could have been longer and the characters more well developed; it seems to me that Linda Lael Miller tries to push out as many novels as she can. If she concentrated more on quality than quantity, she would have more of a following. Overall I only rated this book a 3 as it could have been more developed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Historical Romances That Will Leave You Smiling.... 22 July 2013
By terrylynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I will confess straight away that I am a big Linda Lael Miller fan. Many of my happiest hours have been spent reading historical western romances written by this author. That's not to say that I haven't noticed some of the inaccuracies such as the timing not being absolutely chronological, or that the cover is not reflective of the age in which these stories took place. (Actually this happens with so many books and it is very irritating when the people on the cover of a book look nothing like the characters on the inside of the book... but I digress) It's just that I prefer to focus on the quality of the stories and these other little irritations should not be enough to keep you from reading this book.

The Women of Primrose Creek consists of four novellas I guess you could say, although I think they were initially released individually. The stories are about four women who make their way from Virginia to Nevada to stake out some land left to them by their grandfather after the Civil War. Their once comfortable home and lifestyle are long gone and they have little left except this land and each other. While two have been shunted off to England, the oldest, Bridget and her sister Skye arrive first and try to make a life on the beautiful banks of Primrose Creek in a tiny log cabin that doesn't even have a proper roof. I'll give a brief synopsis of each sister's story told in order... Bridget, Christy, Skye and Megan.

Bridget... is a war widow with a young son named Noah. Her husband Mitch and his best friend Trace, boyhood friends with Bridget and her family, leave for the Civil War, but only Trace returns with the promise he made to Mitch to look after Bridget and now Noah. But Bridget has always had feelings for Trace, and feels she's being disloyal to Mitch, so she tries to run him off. But Trace has other plans and it soon becomes clear to everyone that they all need each other just to survive the harsh conditions in the Nevada territory, not the least of which are Indians.

Christy... Christy has just arrived back from England with her younger sister Megan to find that nothing of her former Virginia home is left but the faithful nursemaid and friend that raised the girls since they were babies. So the three of them, Christy, Megan and Caney set off for Primrose Creek with Christy determined to seek out and marry the richest man she can find so she and Megan will never be poor again. Unfortunately, the man escorting them home, Sheriff Zach Shaw, is too handsome and too brave to be ignored and before she knows it, Christy has to decide between security and love.

Skye... is a lovely young woman who is stubborn, independent and a wonderful horsewoman who is determined to get the man she has loved from afar even though he was once engaged to Skye's cousin Christy. Jake Vigil runs the town lumber mill and is desperate for some of the trees on Skye's land but she refuses to sell so he suggests a horse race. If he wins, Skye has to marry him and he gets his trees and for the first time in her life, Skye wonders if it might be better to lose a horse race rather than win it. But she has her work cut out for her since Jake is determined to protect his heart from ever being broken again.

Megan... is the youngest and is a red haired beauty who longs for a life away from Primrose Creek. So she leaves her sister and cousins behind to become an actress, only to return two years later after having been swindled of the money she got when she asked her sister to sell her part of the land. Discouraged but unbroken, Megan deeply regrets that she sold her portion of their inheritance and when the man who bought it, handsome Web Stratton asks her to be his housekeeper, Megan accepts even though she knows it will be hard to return to the beautiful land that was once hers, as a servant.

These are four lovely romances that are all inner related and every one of the characters, including Caney Blue and her handsome friend Malcolm, are people you can care about. It has all the elements of a fine western romance including love, danger, illness, Indians, betrayal and a long ago secret that changes the very fabric of these women's relationship to one another. A thoroughly enjoyable read for anyone who loves western romance filled with beautiful, intelligent women and handsome, honest and hard working men.

3.0 out of 5 stars Totally agree with the above reviewer. 20 Oct 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The stories were "cute", as when I was 15 reading the little 1" thick harlequin romances. The characters themselves were likeable. (Trace w/Bridget was a really nice, sexy guy) but the stories fell short in many ways. There was no depth of either the story or the characters and that was a real shame. So much potential gone to waste. I also picked up inconsistencies as did the other reviewer but they didn't disturb me as much as the superficiality (hope that's a word) of the work itself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Four Tangled Tales 15 Dec 2003
By bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Not very many have found this book or at least not bothered to review it. I found the inconsistencies a fault too, plus Malcome's first wife was called Polly in one part of the book and he talked about her as Becky in the last one. I found the plot just too unbelievable. What kind of grandpappy was he anyway? He sure didn't parcel out those babies with any concern to their futures or their pasts. When two of the four were actually full sisters and the other two actually twins, why did he split them up by giving them to two different son's of his to raise? I found it all a bit much and then to have two of the girl's mom be right there under their noses was the crowning touch. You have to wonder how an author arrives at such twisted tales.

1.0 out of 5 stars Words are messed up 15 Mar 2014
By Lois Chamberlain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This might be a good book but I can't understand why the typos are so bad, sentences repeating over and over completely out of order.. When I make the font big enough to see all I get is jumbled up letters going down the middle of the page. Very disappointed to pay for a book I can't read!
