Publisher's Summary

A contemporary cowboy ranch romance novel.

As the "younger" twin, Carey Carson has always lived comfortably in brother Casey's shadow, happy to let him take the lead. But when Casey leaves for his honeymoon and the cattle drive has to continue without him, it's up to Carey to step up and fill those highly respected boots.

Amy McDade joined the cattle drive with a group of other vacationers, only for her, this drive isn't about learning to rope a steer or having a good time. It's her final attempt to build up her confidence again since an injury on the job has kept her from being a part of the career she's always loved.

When Carey and Amy find themselves headed back to the Carson Hill Ranch and into waiting danger, can they lean on each other for the strength they will need to fend off a crazed drug dealer bent on revenge?

    "Again pleasantly surprised...."

    Not usually a fan of contemporary western romances, but I have been enjoying this series. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Cluttered plot"
    Would you try another book from Amelia Rose and/or Valerie Gilbert?

    This is my second book by both. I was hoping this would be better than the first but I can't get around the writing style. The narration is good however.


    What could Amelia Rose have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Find one plot and stick to it. There are a bunch of plots that seem to appear and then be solved with minimal substance, growth, build up or background, and since it lacks those things the solutions are quick and sowed up without any conflict so it feels like it was just story filler. Also there are random interjected POV's from character that we never met or know anything about and it doesn't add to the story line, it would be better to minimalize to main character POV and singular plot with minimal sub plots.


    Have you listened to any of Valerie Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She does a great job and really acts the parts she is playing.


    Do you think Searching for Love needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    This is already a series. I listened to bk1 and wasn't thrilled but thought it might get better. It doesn't, in fact this book had less substance than the first book did.


    Any additional comments?

    If the author perhaps made a graph or planned the story with a spreadsheet of some kind maybe the plot wouldn't feel so all over the place. I kept getting those (squirrel) moments that felt disorganized and had no purpose within the story or plots. Also so much time is wasted on non essential things that the already short audiobook is eaten up and leaves no room for actual character development or background, there is no building, it's all insta, insta love, insta villian, insta solution, insta HEA. It was an instant disappointment. I received this audiobook from audiobook boom for my unbiased review.

    "Cowboys Take Care of Business!"

    This is the 2nd book I've listened to in this series! I will definitely continue on to all the rest! The narrator Valerie Gilbert has an amazing talent for portraying the characters in the story. Her voice is clear and soothing to the ears!. I became one of the family through her fabulous and creative inflections of each character. Amelia Rose really knows how to maintain interest with the surprising scenario of each of the brothers' stories!. I cant wait to move on to book 3.
    i was given these books by the author in exchange for an honest review! I'm so glad I have more cowboys to hear about! Thanks to Amelia Rose for these books!

    "Good second Story"

    This book was given for an unbiased review via audiobook boom. This is book 2 of the Carson Hill Ranch series. Cary is the second son and twin to Casey who got married in book one. Cary decided that he was not going to fall for his father's matchmaking scheme but was surprised when he found his true love on the cattle drive that they were on. I liked the mix of characters thrown in and the exposure of not only the drug ring but the sheriff part in it. glad that the two girls were saved from the plot as well. I still think the audio was stilted and you could hear noises that should not be there.

    "Good story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I think i would. There were a few parts i rolled my eyes at near the beginning of the story but it morphed into something different than what i thought it would be. Yes, Ranch, cattle drive, all that, but the story isn't the typical "western" romance


    What other book might you compare Searching for Love to and why?

    I am not sure. There are a a lot of books i have listened to that are a lot like this, but this veers off the typical story that is followed


    Which character – as performed by Valerie Gilbert – was your favorite?

    I like Amy. She is strong but not like the "typical" girl in a lot of romances.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, once it got into the story more than just talking about the dad wanting to "set up" his son with a woman and all that, it was good and i wanted to find out how it ended.

    “This audiobook was given by the author at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review."


    This is book two in this series. Carey Carson, the next oldest brother decided he didn't want his father to choose a bride for him. He finds dating options a bit scarce, but meets Amy a quiet woman who signed up for their cattle drive. Then begins the exciting adventures. Amelia Rose spins out a romance, mystery, suspense story to keep the listener hanging on for the next page.




    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Valerie Gilbert has a pleasant voice.

    "LOVED IT!"

    I don't know why, but I loved this one more than the first one. I think it is something about Carey, being the brother in shadow and coming into his own. I really enjoyed going on the cattle drive and meeting Amy. I loved the way it tied in Miranda and Casey from the first book, introduced us to a couple of other brothers(Anders and Joseph), setting us up for additional Carson adventures. The mention of a feminist on the drive as well, and her superior attitude made me smile. The growing relationship between Carey and Amy moved fast, but was completely believable. Her history and why she came to Texas, how she jumped in to help and literally break the case made me feel that her strength and passion were a perfect match for Carey. Can't say enough good things about this one!

    Valerie Gilbert again brings it for us. She is an amazing narrator, lucky to have her in my ears telling me this story!

    "Carson Hill Ranch, Book 2"

    Every able bodied family member and ranch hand of Carson Hill Ranch get ready to go on a cattle drive. There are city slickers who paid for the adventure to go along on the cattle drive. First they are surprised by a wedding for the oldest of the Carson twins, which was also a surprise for the bride. With his twin brother off to his honeymoon Carey now has to step up and take charge, something he isn't used to. While on the drive he notices a quiet shy and timid Amy McDade, she seems to have all kinds of trouble with riding horses. Carey steps in and helps her out, but she just can't get the hang of it.... With trouble back at the ranch Carey is told by his father to go back and help. Amy sees this as her chance to get away from the horse she feels hates her and. more importantly, to spend some time with the handsome Carey Carson.... There's something about Amy no one knows, how Carey reacts when he finds out is priceless.
    There's a lot more adventures in this book with surprises along the way. I'm looking forward to more from the Carson Hill Ranch series Highly recommend this book to anyone!

    Valerie Gilbert does a wonderful job narrating. Her voices are consistent with the characters . She has a pleasant voice and is easy to understand
