So I read half of The Chief and gave up, just couldn't like it. I have a bunch of her other books, are they all like that or should I give them a shot?

I haven't read The Chief so I can't say how it compares.  But I liked her McCloud and Campbell books.

I gave up on The Chief too, but i figured it was just me. I usually dont care for historicals i just wanted to give it a try because so many others loved it.

In my opinion McCarty is "almost" good. I've read pretty much all of her books and while they are decent, they all seem to lack that extra oomph that makes a book remarkable in a good way,.  Her latest series I have tried to read and wasn't impressed with them.

It just goes to show that "one man's trash is another man's treasure."  I loved The Chief and have The Hawk in the TBR mountain, and will get The Ranger probably this week.

Ashely - I've found her previous 2 series to be a bit better reading material than this Highland Guard one...I've read the Chief and The Hawk - found them good reads but not as enjoyable as her earlier stuff.

Thanks everyone. It's so hard to decide what books are worth reading. With a tbr over 1000 it can become very stressful lol
