Donna – CataRomance
I know that Linda Warren wrote in her forward on this book that it was difficult to write. Yet, I have to say that I really enjoyed this romance. It continues a storyline begun previously (THE CHRISTMAS CRADLE), involving Reed’s sister and her relationship with Colter Kincaid. Other books are also part of this series. This could easily have denigrated into a maudlin, superficial kind of novel. Instead, it offers up a realistic view of two very intelligent, strong people and how they react when faced with unspeakable stress and trauma. The character development is excellent with a realistic plot, focusing on the extended families of these two characters. People do unusual things when they face a crisis and this book effectively illustrates this in a powerful manner. If you read one category romance this early fall, make it this one. You’ll not be disappointed.
