Top critical review

I'm a huge fan of Debbie 's books. I really liked the story of the teacher revitalizing the town. Surprisingly, I liked the two male protagonists least of any of her characters. They were too temperamental and Moody for my tastes. Gage was the "romantic hero" I liked least. And Brandon, I felt similarly about.
Even though the Heart of Texas series had some cowboys with rough edges, it seemed those characters were fleshed out more and more believable. Much more consistent and romantic than the Dakota boys. I probably won't read the remaining Dakota series. I believe Debbie' s later books are better, generally.
