I am new to Julie Garwood books and I am so glad I started with Gentle Warrior. It is a warm love story with an engaging story line. I plan to listen to it over and over again several times a year. I will also look into more of her stories.
This just isn't my kind of story. I struggled to finish it. Action too slow. Romance kept interrupting to he story at the worst times.
Loved this touching story of a City Girl who loses her twin but true love helps her convict the killer which settles many family mysteries. Don't get me wrong, it's a very good romance.
I came very close to not getting this book due to a bad review - I AM SO GLAD I WENT WITH MY GUT INSTINCT! This was a very sweet story of two teenage lovers getting a second chance. Luke is there to help Sydney thru a very tough time and she gets to rediscover the one true love of her life.
Realistic time travel story. Good characters overcoming obstacles to end up together. Ending leads directly to book 3. I have been reading these in order which I suggest to anyone to do the same. Love the Narrator.
I love the Grant Clan and KM! She handled a story of abuse and PTSD with respect, humility, and mostly love. The average reader may find this story too rough, phyically and emotionally, especially if you look for escape reading. But if you want something that touches your mind, heart, and soul - this one's for you.
I was disappointed with the first 7 Chapters of this book. It was nothing but "woe is me. I just got out of a bad relationship" from Payton, the P.A., who according to the info blurb, is supposed to be falling for the local doc. This doesn't even start, with a BAD pickup line :), until Chapter 8. From then on things happen according to what we are expecting and it becomes a nice story.
This is a romance within several mysteries that is not easy to figure out before the ending of the book. Personally, I liked the reality of the situations within the many different characters. Animal lovers beware, the dog does get injured but makes a complete recovery. Yay!
Kat Martin is one of my most favorite authors. Jack Garrett is a wonderful Narrator. Which Brother is next?! I'm ready!!
Books 13 and 14 are about the Murray twins, Atan and Lucas. Their stories are as different as their personalities. After a savage beating and the "death" of his Lady Love, Lucas returns for revenge. Only he finds his Lady Love is already in the process of avenging his believed death - My favorite Part of this Book is a Strong Female Lead Character. So when the two of them get together to "put things to right and settle their believed heartbreaks" sparks fly.
Hannah, please continue to give us lots more of the Murray family! I love it.
Honestly I bought this book only because I like redheads. The story and character development was a delightful surprise. From "real people" in the community making up the soliders in the militia to the bond that develops almost immediately between Tobias and Dylan. Their struggles, hers with PTSD and his with the Dylan he comes to know vs. who her file says she is, are totally on the mark and lead to a breathtaking ending. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes romance, intrigue, and muscles.
I seldom read SciFi books but after reading all the exciting reviews, I decided to give it a try. I was entralled with the story in about 10 minutes and was literally biting my lip til the end. The idea of a child being groomed for leadership in a 'planetary defense" plan just didn't seem right to me but I soon forgot his age until the story reminded me of it.
For those who like to read books in the order of events instead of publishing dates, I am going to reprint the list that I found so helpful that "Joe, from California" mentioned in a review that I can't find again:
Shadow of the Hegeman
Shadow of the Giant
Speaker for the Dead
Children of the Mist
First Meeting - a collection of short stories that fill in small details that is recommended after finishing the series.
Thank You, Joe.
