Haven't even read it yet....why does B & N say 384 pages when my Nook says 193? Minus extra pages not actually part of the story? Hope you realize that people really will stop buying if they feel like you are trying to rip them off....
Rachel did it again. Another great book!! I loved the Chinook hockey series books and didn't think I would like her other books, but I was wrong! I love all of her books and I don't think she has ever written a bad book. I love how she brings characters from other books into her current books. Thank you Rachel for making my day yet again and giving me more great books to re-read!!
I lived the first 25 years of my life in Texas. I didn't recognize anything in this book that felt true. Perhaps if this had taken place in 1950 it would have had some semblance of reality. Please don't base the real Texas on these characters and their stereotypical and outdated attitudes.
Having a hard time getting into this book. The character development is slow and so far I really don't care to see what happens to them... But it seems predictable what will. Hopefully it will get better.
