Publisher's Summary

One of romance fiction’s most popular storytellers, Catherine Anderson hits the New York Times best-seller list with each of her scintillating works. Reissued after being out of print for many years, Indigo Blue is one of Anderson’s early gems. In it, a high-spirited woman named Indigo—who is half Comanche and half white—lives a solitary existence among the Oregon folk who don’t understand her. But that all changes when Jake Rand rolls into town.

Tedious torture

This book is about Indigo Wolf, the daughter of Hunter and Loretta Wolf from Comanche Moon, and the niece of Amy and Swift Lopez from Comanche Heart. Its 15+ hours of torture! I think the writer has a knack at describing human emotions and inner turmoil, but 15 hours worth is just tedious. I could understand and empathize with Indigos struggle to cope with her inferiority complex, mistrust of men, and terrified misgivings of sexual intimacy, after all she had a horrible thing happen to her at the age of 13, something that would cause scars to remain on most any woman. However, after listening to it described repeatedly for 12 hours, I just wanted to scream, get over it! The long repeated descriptions of her angst ruined the book for me. I got it, I understood, I empathized, I ached for her, but after about 5 hours, it just turned exhausting. I’m not exaggerating when I say, It’s 12 or so hours of Indigo struggling with personal demons, then everything is wrapped up a little too quickly in the last 2.5-3 hours of the book. She forgives her husband a huge lie, a little too easily, and the ‘suspenseful’ ending is so cornball, I was rolling my eyes. The narrator is horrible. She has an old lady sounding monotone voice and her pace is painfully slow. Listening to her read the ‘big’ love scene is somewhat gross, sort of like your Grandma reading soft porn aloud. Yuck! Oh and you will laugh when you hear her pronounce the word, areola. OMG!

Excellent and well paced romance and mystery



I hesitated to purchase this book because the previous review was lukewarm. However, I love Catherine Anderson’s style and have enjoyed the Comanche series. I am really glad I went with my gut because I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the third in the Comanche series. Catherine Anderson has a slow and deliberate style which may be frustrating to readers who want things to happen quickly. However, I find it refreshing and more realistic as the characters unfold and develop at a natural and more believable pace.

It is the story of Indigo, the only daughter of Hunter of the Wolf and his Anglo wife, Loretta (both introduced in Comanche Moon). Indigo is a nineteen-year-old beauty who enjoys living with her parents, working in her father’s mine, and “talking” with her animals. Without revealing his true identify or his great wealth, Jake Rand comes to town to investigate a series of dangerous accidents that have occurred at the mine, one of which injured Indigo’s father, Hunter. The story unfolds into a romance pursued by Jake and resisted by Indigo. Interwoven is a suspenseful mystery, as Jake gets dangerously closer to discovering who is behind the mind explosions.

Comanche meets Oregon Trail SPOILERS

I love the Comanche books by Catherine Anderson. I gave it only 4 stars in the story category because of Hunter’s marrying off his only daughter without her input. He’d had too much Laudanum apparently and after 20 years of marriage you would think Loretta would have grown a backbone by now and really dosed him good before that “bride price” was struck.

As an aside, where is THE BOOK ABOUT HOW HUNTER AND LORETTA MADE IT TO WOLF’S LANDING? I don’t think there was a Tartis around back then but that part of their story leaves a huge gap.
Everybody is a critic! LOL

Hears the thing.....

This series is wonderful. Great story line. However the narration is horrible. She makes all the characters sound like their 80 years old. There maybe some books that her voice would be ok for, but not one with the characters under the age of 60.

Boring chapter of two - fill it with something?

SPOILER ALERT: The looooooong drawn out chapter(s), to get to the point where Jake fiiiiiinally bedded Indigo, was stupid. There were so many OTHER interesting options the author could have taken during that period of time, to get the story to that "moment". It didn't build tension, or add anything to take thaaaaaat long... it was just plain boring. There was a whole wasted chapter or two there, where nothing happened, the book just stalled... Wasn't there an editor to read this book before it was released? If the author can't put anything interesting in there, I'd say either condense that/those chapters, or remove it/them entirely. Such a shame.

Reader's voice is too old

Would you listen to Indigo Blue again? Why?

No. The reader's voice is aged. The character is a young woman.

What didn’t you like about Ruth Ann Phimister’s performance?

She was a poor choice for a young virgin. I'm not young either, and I wouldn't be a good choice either.
