Review: The Cowboy’s Bride Collection

Review: The Cowboy’s Bride Collection

Becca Whitham, Christian, Darlene Franklin, Davalynn Spencer, historical, Jaime Jo Wright, Miralee Ferrell, Nancy J. Farrier, romance, Susan Page Davis, Susanne Dietze, Vickie McDonough 1

Jaime Jo Wright’s writing voice makes me smile, and the bits of humor she threaded through The Cowgirl’s Lasso made that smile even wider. From the dime novels to the spider attack – even the nod to pal Erica Vetsch’s The Legend of Obadiah Walker – you will find plenty of reasons to smile too!

Review: The 12 Brides of Christmas collection

Usually when you have this many different authors in one place, there are bound to be a couple of stories that I don’t like. That was not the case in The 12 Brides of Christmas. I have my favorite novellas of the group, certainly, but each story was very well-written with solidly developed & engaging characters and emotionally-satisfying plots. My only wish is that each novella had been its own full-length novel so that I could have more of the delightful characters.
