because I HAD to finish it This is definitely a story doorway novel Character is the secondary doorway I m dubious on the accuracy of the historical details, though The book is set in 1879 80 New York City Colorado, but I kept having to verify that by looking back at the first page I m not sure exactly why maybe the description of photographs in the ranch house, or the jeans Connor wore, or Maggie her sisters having college degrees just felt inauthentic Still a good story, though SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS You have been warned.The guy Connor Holiday has just won big at cards and has all the

happy, just a poor misunderstood person hide spoiler Gah I thoroughly enjoyed all three of the recent westerns published by Goodman, and was so tickled to find an older one at the library sale This might teach me not to be so greedy at the sales Some books are better left in the past This is one of them This book has got one hell of a premise I cannot say that I liked how the story began Mary Maggie was mistaken for a whore in a brothel and Connor was her customer And it was one unforgettable night of course This is where I am like no way Maggie was supposed to be drugged and had no recollection of the night And it just so happened that Maggie s father and Connor s father were planning a match between them Plus The evil but then not so evil ex fianc turned step mother, Maggie s becomi This book has got one hell of a premise I cannot say that I liked how the story began Mary Maggie was mistaken for a whore in a brothel and Connor was her customer And it was one unforgettable

match between them Plus The evil but then not so evil ex fianc turned step mother, Maggie s becoming a doctor in the epilogue, it was all just very unreal and unbelievable But I enjoyed Maggie and Connor as characters very much I liked how they got to know each other and how the relationship developed It was that alone that I was able to enjoy this book and ignore all the ridiculous plots This wasn t very well done as a story, but the characterization and relationship development made the story for me Like all Jo Goodman stories, this book also lacked in excitement It isn t an exciting adventure but it is a gradually developed love story, just what Jo Goodman is good at and my kind of story This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This book was a giant mess The first part tries to alternate scenes between two characters different view points, and fails to make it convincing or make much sense From one case of mistaken identity of sorts the author then throws in amnesia for fun This isn t enough so the author throws in a sort of secret pregnancy This isn t enough so she throws in a seeming love triangle with his scheming former fiancee now mother in law Then the heroine gets a rejection letter from medical school This book was a giant mess The first part tries to alternate scenes between two characters different view points, and

pregnancy This isn t enough so she throws in a seeming love triangle with his scheming former fiancee now mother in law Then the heroine gets a rejection letter from medical school her life dream That isn t enough so she adds in an abortion And a fake marriage And an abusive husband the hero is perpetually grabbing and leaving bruises on her but it is all just a misunderstanding because he hates her so much Oh and a magic healer mountain man And oh wait she didn t actually get the abortion and all the emotional drama was misdirection And they neither actually hate each other they love each other Hard Eye roll For awhile I hated the hero, but had high hopes of it still being a reasonable abortion plot line Something that isn t done in historicals, or to be honest even very often in contemporaries It felt like it would deal with regret, hard choices, the disapproval of others etc But then it turns out it was all a lie the heroine told because Because None of that part made sense It made even less sense when it turned out she was accepted into medical school after all, and her being rejected was ALSO a lie Oh And after all the horrible things she said and did, the scheming and cruelty, the seduction attempts, the evil mother in law was actually just misunderstood and a good person as if Overwrought Overdone By the end absolutely Nonsensical By the 50% mark I was skimming By the 75% mark I was skimming heavily As plot goes this is the absolute worst I have read by the author As romance goes If it wasn t the worst it was close.Honestly at the end I felt the author had one storyline when she started, but changed her mind half way through, then got told to make changes later by someone else turning the whole thing into a giant mess
