Lately, Ive been rereading books that underwhelmed me the first time around; WILD TEXAS ROSE fits that bill. Sometimes the second reading helps me view the story differently or from another angle. To be fair, this book certainly doesnt travel down the beaten path; one usually cant anticipate the next scene.

However, some things were mighty strange. In the opening chapters, Duncan has received a letter perhaps telling him about his parents, age, etc. He decides to leave it in one of Roses cases, because he wants her to be with him when he opens it. That is the last we hear of the letter.

I had trouble buying into Rose and Duncans decision to marry. Rose has avoided the altar three different times. Now, Rose and Duncan play with the idea (of loving each other) and then it seems as if Rose just gives up and decides he is the one. Ive enjoyed both characters in the past; but there seemed to be no passion or romance between them. I came away from this book feeling that something was wrong or missing.

Then, there were 3 other couples in this book: Killian and Victoria, Abe and Sarah, Stitch and Hallie. I felt that their stories were given as much or more play than Rose and Duncan. Victoria is a character TSTL*; Killian deserved better. She was so unlikeable that I was surprised that Jodi Thomas wrote the book! Ms. Thomas has a way with characters, dialog and scenes; how on earth did she write such an awful character?

This book seems to be crowded with too many characters. There is so much going on. I know that Victorias father and fiancées plans were based on established facts. However, with so many individual stories and characters, the story seemed to lack focus.

*TSTL = too stupid to live
