I really like this story. It was well written, interesting and had likeable main characters. The villains weren't flat but evil enough to hate them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Firefly 30 Jan. 2015
By Cphe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I went into this novel with certain expectations. I was in the mood for a gentler historical romance and this novel delivered. This novel is reminiscent of those older "harlequin" romances that laid the foundations of what I've come to appreciate in the romance genre to this day, what I refer to as my "guilty reading pleasure."

This novel had all of the hallmarks of those earlier romance novels that I remember so fondly. There was Del the rugged, but tender Doctor who has known heartbreak and despair. Then there was Julie the quiet, shy heroine who offers him redemption and a reason for living. To my mind Del was the stronger character, and well presented I thought. I would have liked Julie to be a bit more fiesty but she did redeem herself in my eyes later in the novel .There are a cast of supporting characters who epitomise my ideal of the historical western genre.

This novel had the angst, the romance, the happily ever after, a hint of mystery and the premise of the good guys triumping over the bad guys. All that you would expect of this genre......pure escapism.

There were some negatives for me. I agree with the formatting, the "B" is still present and the "ice cream" and the use of an "alarm clock" did jar.
There is a fine line between "cheesiness" and cringe worthy in these type of novels and the author managed that deftly IMO.

Overall I was pleased with my purchase and I enjoyed the read more than I expected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy, breezy read 15 Jun. 2012
By Misfit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Hollstrom family are new to the small town of Plato in the Arizona territory (they have a history of relocating often, but that's part of the big ta-dah at the end). Daughter Julie seems relegated to a life as a spinster and waiting hand and foot on her self-centered parents and spoiled younger brother. Del Morgan was the town doctor until his wife and unborn son were shot down by accident, and he now spends his time drowning his sorrows in a haze of alcohol. Julie's downtrodden existence piques Del's interest and he's soon on the path of sobriety and doctoring for the town folk again. He's also starting to have serious feelings for Julie, but there's still those *issues* with her parents and her supposed fiancé. You know the path to true love is never easy in a romance novel, don't you?

This was a quick easy read, and while not the greatest romance ever, it was fun to read. I have to admit having a hard time warming up to downtrodden Julie, but it was just days after struggling with perennial victim Ana in that awful Fifty Shades of Grey book - so that was my problem and not the author's. There isn't a lot of sex in this book, only one *big* sex scene and that was about 75% in, so if you're looking for a sexed up romance this isn't the book for you. My only real quibble is the formatting, starting with the font - Courier? Aiyee! Plus some odd sentences here and there that didn't quite make sense.

"Willy B she had no idea when he had come home B thrashed in his sleep and mumbled something from a dream."

"...if you hadn't B if we hadn't done what we"

I picked it up as a Kindle freebie, but if I had paid full price I might be a bit ticked. This was originally published in 1988 (love the older cover), and as the author freely admits in her notes at the end of the new edition well before the days of instant info at the click of a mouse. Like another reviewer I was wondering about ice-cream and strawberries in a small Arizona town, but I'm more forgiving in these older books. A good read and I do recommend it, but for reasons stated above (especially the formatting) I just can't rate it higher than three.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong 3.5 stars 26 Jun. 2012
By L. Christensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Although I enjoyed this easy read, there were a couple of questionable items that didn't make sense. First, as both other reviewers stated the ice cream and berries purchase in AZ in 1884 but that could be explained away that it sounded like the merchant made it for the family and just sold whatever was leftover. The most glaring for me was Del was able to stop drinking cold turkey with no apparent side effects.

The story itself was a bit different than the typical romance novel. There was not a lot of steamy sex, instead the author focused on the two main characters getting through traumatic events from the past and moving forward. Very emotional for both. I didn't care for the way Julie accepted her lot in life from her crazy father.

I don't know if it's possible but the font on my Fire was not Courier, however, there were some strange letter B's randomly placed throughout. A couple of words out of place but not so much to distract from the story. Although it is totally irrelevant to the story, I did not like the girl on the cover. LOL

I would recommend this for a quick, summer read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs proper formatting for Kindle 4 May 2012
By elleoco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really liked this story and the characters, although there were details (such as being able to buy ice cream in a small Arizona town) that felt more like early 1900's than the supposed 1884 time of the story. I also had problems with an ending that simply assumed the law would ignore criminal behavior such as murder and attempted murder because the good guys waved the forgiveness wand.

However, the fact the Kindle version is formatted in an ugly Courier font, which ensures few words and huge spaces between them on every line is probably going to keep people who would enjoy the story from buying it if they sample and maybe even from reading it if they get it for free. I hope the author sees this comment and fixes the formatting. The story deserves it.
