TBR reviewer: Brutally Honest
Winny is...very domestic, yes, that’s the word I’d use. She’s sweet and I did like her character. Her son, Roy, stalked and tried to kill Luke’s family. Lucas is a forty something year old ranch owner who is in love with Winny. He rather reminds me of Harrison Ford. (Who I would take home at any age! *wink* Email me Harrison, lol.)
I love the fact that the story plays out just before Roy’s trial, which we know from the
2nd book that he escapes. The story overlaps in a very interesting manner. The romance is a blend of heat and elegance. They had this underlying sweetness that really gave the characters that much more depth.
So, why not 5 shiny stars? There was a lot to be fixed about Trouble Brewing in Thunder Creek. First is the scenes. Some were rushed, others slow and then there are several scenes that were so boring I was tempted to skip over them. Ms. Nelson wrote a lot of domestic scenes, cooking and spending time with the boys. It should have been trimmed so it wouldn’t hinder the flow so drastically. Parts of the book were more outlines; there was no fleshing out
and little details. I can’t help but wonder why this book took such a downward turn when the first two in the series were fantastic! The action was tame. There wasn’t suspense or edge of your seat scenes like the first two. This needed another intense look by an editor; I think that would have solved half the problems.
Trouble Brewing in Thunder Creek was a good read but certainly not a favorite. If you liked the first two in this series you’ll enjoy this one.
