An ok read to kill some time
on 4 March 1999
I am quite surprised to see all the glowing reviews here for this book. Don't get me worng, I enjoyed reading about Leah and Jackson, but I did not think this was 5 star material. The plot was interesting, with a few levels not usually found in romance novels. I liked Ms. Wigg's use of Cassie as a character and her role in the plot. I do not have much of a psychological back ground, but I would have liked to have seen a more in depth view of what made her tick. Ms. Wiggs gave me enough to keep me interested, but I would have liked to become absorbed.
Leah and Jackson obviously have a lot of baggage to sort thru, and eventually they did, but something just seemed to be missing. I wish I could put my finger directly on the problem, but I'm afraid I can't. They skirted each other, letting down their gaurds a little at a time, but it just seemed a little...brief. Again, I would have liked to have seen more. As with many romance novels today, I felt the end extremely rushed. The sherif's story, the Indians, our new female doctor and the marshall all seemed to rush together to end at once, with out a saticfactory explination. Oh, the explination was there, it just rushed by.
On the whole, this is not a bad book. If you want a time filler on the beach or on the ride to work, pick it up. If you're looking for in depth descriptions and an intricate plot, look elsewhere.
