This is a well written book. Each story stands alone. The geographic and historical details are accurate. The stories capture early 20th century life in the southwest with a good mix of modern and old west technology. The protagonist is an older bounty hunter who has plenty of faults. I just recently reread the book.
This is a very good,entertaining story. Some editing is needed, but not to the point of distraction. The story is great.
I grew up in the area where the story is centered. Some of the geographical details were distracting until I reminded myself that this was a story, not a historical account.
This author mixes humor with the violence of a "new" old west.
I have just read this for the second time. Iliked it well enough the first time to read it again. I have enjoyed the whole series and am disappointed that there is not a follow up story.
I hope there is more to come.
If this had been a shorter book, I would not have been able to put it down. Since it was too long to read at one sitting, I was eager to get back to it each time I had to take a break.
The characters are very well developed and interesting.
It is a terrific book. WELL DONE!!
The book is pretty well writen until the ending. It seems as though the author just stopped writing rather than write some sort of conclusion. If this was intended to be a continuing story, it should be labeled as such. Good writing, poor marketing. It will make me wary of other works by this author.
This book is about men spanking their wives/sisters. The plot is pretty good but the men's obsession with spanking women is distracting. I reluctantly finished the story, but would not purchase another book by this author.
I read all three books in sequence. I just finished my second reading and realized I had not given a review. It was hard to stop reading. The books are very well written. I think they are the best I have seen on Smashwords.
The story is great. I have read most of the books by Ms Shayne. One thing that is bothersome is that the author is unfamiliar with Texas geography. In this book, it is implied that the distance to the Texas Brand is only a short drive from Louisiana. In fact, if the Texas Brand is in the area of El Paso, it would be close to 900 miles. The area around El Paso is not lush and green as implied in earlier stories.
Good story line and well written. Just needs a little "tuning" for a Texan.
Disappointed in the ending. Was surprised that this was a "to be continued" story. This was not clearly identified in the description. The story was well written, but the disappointment withe the ending overshadowed the good story.
If you buy this book, expect to wait for the ending.
It appears that the author intends to write a "soap opera" series. It is very upsetting to be fooled into purchasing an incomplete story. The first book was the same, but since it was free, I didn't feel cheated.
I purchased this one expecting to see completion of the story, but was disappointed to find it was an incomplete story. Good writing does not overcome deceptive marketing.
Never again with this author.
