Rachel and the Hired Gun by Elaine Levine

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Beginning was gripping but somewhere along the way it seemed to drag out. Have to say that Sager was a rugged character, one that I always enjoy. Emotions seemed redundant towards the end. Overall it was a good read.

A Wanted Man by Linda Lael Miller

A Wanted Man (Stone Creek, #2)A Wanted Man by Linda Lael Miller

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was a very nice read. Smooth, characters well-developed.

All in all, 'A Wanted Man' gave you a real feel like taking a dusty stroll in the ole West while wanting to greet everyone along the way with a 'howdy'. Ms. Millers dialogue between her characters was very fluent and credible, especially between father and son. I loved how Ms. Miller entwined a family, dysfunction at that, and made it work throughout the entire story.

Rowdy Rhodes was a surefooted individual with a gentle, caring nature and that balance is usually hard to weigh. The author created a man who made his mistakes but strove to be a better man not just with himself but through helping others. Lark was sweet and timid, just one would consider a 'prime and proper' lady to be like back in the day. Overall it was a fun read, that left you feeling happier and a little more appreciative of the comforts of home.

If you would like a feel-good read backed by honor, morals and a feel for the ole West, Linda Lael Miller's 'A Wanted Man' is a great choice.
