Weak story, superbly narrated

I almost felt angry listening to this improbable, insipid story, set in small town Texas, 1915. The heroine is an absolute idiot. No credit to her teaching profession. It's a wonder her wounded "outlaw" didn't freeze or starve under her tender care. Also, the relationship developed too fast, in a few days -- and most of that time, the hero was asleep or delirious. Further, the suspense plot simply ... disappeared. No follow up. Who hired the killer? Will he try again?

And this small town has no doctor, no hospital, but a newborn babe -- only a week old -- was carted miles from home, across the snow, to see a Christmas pageant and meet the community -- even though severe, infectious illness and attempted murder has been hitting the streets.

But the narration is pitch perfect.

I have not read Linda Lael Miller's books before. She has quite a following. Maybe it's me. Maybe it's this particular book. I doubt I will try another, though.

Did I mention that Jack Garrett delivered a 5-star performance?

Linda Lael Miller does it again. Jack Garrett makes listening to the book enjoyable.
