I've always been a great fan of Johanna's books, but after her last few disappointing novels, I was beginning to think that she had lost her talent.
Fortunately, it looks to be that she's on her way back. Although not up to the great standard of her earlier works (ie Savage Thunder, Man of my Dreams and the Malory novels), this book is a great improvement over her more recent novels.
A bit slow to start (too much narration), but got better once the girls met Chad. The evolving relationship between Chad & Marian, a train robbery and kidnapping, plus a few unexpected twists and turns kept those pages turning.
Fingers crossed, Johanna's new Malory novel due out later this year, is back to the excellent standard of her earlier novels.
