    One thought on “Man of the West”

    1. I am really conflicted about this book. I loved the writing, and the author did such a good job of world-building. However, the climax was anything but. And there were a few more problems, which I’ll address.Jolie Jensen is twenty-seven years old, with a ten year old child, and she’s on the run from her drug-addicted loser of an ex-husband, Billy Jensen. Jolie’s cousin Amanda has set up a job and a place for her and the child to live Lockette, Texas, a tiny ranching town where Amanda lives [...]

    2. This book reminded me of Susan Wiggs or Robin Carr in that there are multiple story lines going on at the same time. In fact so much time was spent on family characters I didn't feel like this was a romance about Jolie and Jake. The H/h spent very little time together on paper and I just didn't see them falling in love. Very little POV from the hero.That said, I did like the book just wish I was more interested in the H/h.

    3. I was in the mood for a western, some cowboys, so I picked up Man of the West, since I had been pleasantly surprised by Ms. Callhan’s Lone Star Woman that I reviewed last year. While the overall story of this latest book is good and I like the characters, I do have some disappointment when it comes to the hero and heroine.Jolie has finally decided to leave her no-good ex-husband, so on a stormy night she packs up her daughter and very few belongings, sneaks out of her old life to head toward a [...]

    4. I loved this book. It's just the type of light, breezy read that I need when I want to relax.With several story lines weaving their way through the lives of different characters,there was just enough action and drama to keep one interested from one page to the next.

    5. This sequel to "Lone Star Woman" is great! I love all of the relationships -- the supporting cast really help make this story!Contemporary Western Romance
