While this was a good book, I was disappointed because I had read it. It came out before with another name. I think that is kind of sneaky on the authors part to change the name and you think you are reading a new book only to find that it is a reprint.
Do you ever really forget your first love? For Adam and Vonnie it appears that the answer is yes. Or is it? When tragedy comes into their lives, each must face the fact that they still care about the other, more than they should under the circumstances. Why can't they stop thinking about the other even when their families are so opposed to them even talking together?
Deeply moving with elements of mystery and humor. Loved the ostrich element of the story - having lived near an ostrich farm- the descriptions of the events surrounding the ostriches brought lots of memories and laughter.
Really enjoyed this book. I loved the fact that our heroine isn't one of those that is easily pushed around by men and I love the type of farm she grows up on. I don't think i've read another book with that kind of farm yet. Some great moments and one I laughed out loud at. Looking forward to the next in the series.
Lori Copeland is one of my favorite authors. This was another great book.
I really liked this book. Everything works out well in the end!
Good story with humor and a bit of a mystery stemming from the past. Would recommend!
I have to agree with another reviewer who described the lead, Vonnie Taylor, as wishy-washy. She is. She is stubborn and, at times, very stupid. Why authors believe that these qualities would be endearing or desirable to men is beyond me.
The prologue features a shootout that leaves a family dead and begets a bitter, lifelong feud between two men which reaches their offspring, Vonnie Taylor and Adam Baldwin. Married for a scant 24 hours when they were adolescents, Vonnie is now a much-admired seamstress and Adam a rancher, who is engaged to Beth Baylor, a complete twit with no redeeming qualities. Seriously, that is exactly how she comes across in this story.
Vonnie's father raised ostriches but now someone is sabotaging her late father's ranch. Vonnie and Adam work together to solve the mystery. Overall, there is some of Copeland's trademark humor but this book falls flat due to poor characterization and nonsensical plotting.
This book was absolutely fabulous. I could not put it down and read it in one sitting.
