Her Wylder Frontier by Sarita Leone

 

. . . A broken engagement sends Lily Bloom from her beloved Charlestown South Caroline to the town of Wylder in Wyoming Territory, a place where she’ll rebuild her life and reclaim her dignity. Theodore Harvey longs for a wife and family to chase away the loneliness that comes with living on the frontier. His gardens and sturdy home are stunning but there should be footsteps other than his own to bring the place alive.

Can this southern belle find happiness amidst the grit of the wild west?

Her Wylder Frontier, written by Sarita Leone, is a short historical romance out to the Wylder West Series, is a recent release by the Wild Rose Press.

Our Review: There is much to be said for the phrase “character arc”  when it comes to romantic fiction. The reader is initially shown a character and all his/her foibles and strengths, then over the course of the story sees that same character change, mature and grow. A frequent contributor to the Wylder West Series, author Sarita Leone again demonstrates her skill at designing, developing, then ‘arcing’ a character. In the case of Her Wylder Frontier, we are better for her many talents. Well done!

 On a scale of 1-5, Her Wylder Frontier earns a 5.

Gone Before by Terry Korth Fischer

        

           A murderer who doesn’t leave a clue.

         Small-town detective, Rory Naysmith, thought he’d seen it all, but a young woman’s brutal murder is especially hard to stomach. Doubly so, when he recognizes the murder’s MO is identical to that of Tobias Snearl, the killer he put behind bars a decade before.

         His frustration grows after a series of senseless accidents plague those dearest to him, and a second woman dies. Searching for answers, Rory races against time, plunging deep into the murder investigations, drawing ever closer to becoming a casualty of the dark, angry deeds himself, until he finds no one is who they pretend to be—and none are beyond evil’s reach.

 Our Review: Often irascible but always dry-witted Rory Naysmith is back to please readers of this popular series. On his toes—so to speak—with the latest murder to hit Winterset, Nebraska, Rory battles bureaucracies both inside and out of this small mid-western town and it’s smaller police department. A reluctant transplant from the big city, with murder, this cop is in his element and the reader knows it from page one.

Gone Before is loaded with a cast of diverse, quirky characters along with a budding love interest for the socially challenged Rory—and it’s so much fun to watch.

 Based on a scale of 1-5, Gone Before deserves a 7.

The Witch of Rathborne Castle by Virginia Barlow

 



          In the middle of a dark, twisted forest in Cumbria England, Lady Jane Lenwood lives at Rathborne Castle, alone and penniless, blaming her misfortunes on the current Duke of Rathborne. But Lady Jane has a secret, voices inside her head that warn her of a dark and dangerous future, and foretells the arrival of an unwanted visitor to her gates.

Gravely wounded, Max Radley is found inside the gates of Rathborne and begs her help. He is intrigued and drawn to the beautiful red-haired woman whom the locals fear is a witch. After spending the winter snowed in, Max must resume his search for a traitor to the Crown but finds he cannot forget Lady Jane.

As treason, enemies, lies and deception surround them, Jane must give up everything to save both their lives and their future.  

 Our Review: for fans of action-packed swashbucklers set in England during the early 1700’s, this is the one for you. Author Barlow weaves multiple sub-plots and secondary characters into the story, keeping the reader turning the pages to learn who is behind the threats to the English monarchy as well as two deserving lovers.

 Based on a scale of 1-5, The Witch of Rathborne Castle deserves a 4.

The Gingerbread Man by Kim Turner

 


Hannah Tate is raising her children alone after her husband's death. It hasn’t been easy but after chores get done which she nor her adolescent son completed, she wonders who her mysterious helper might be. While her daughter insists it’s The Gingerbread Man who comes late at night, Hannah has no time for such nonsense.

A veteran of the War of Aggression, John Sullivan lives alone outside Harper Falls, trapping for a living and coping with horrific memories of too much violence and death. When circumstance brings him to meet the woman he’s been secretly helping, he doesn’t expect to find love once again.

But he’ll risk his life more than once to finally hold her forever.

 

Our Review: This delightful Western romance is made that much better with author Turner’s flair for using the costumes, customs and speech patterns common to the time. Featuring two lonely people who have lost everything—only to find it again. This is the perfect solution to the rush and bother surrounding modern holiday celebrations. Treat yourself by taking time to sit by a glowing fire with a warm cup of tea, and perhaps a warm gingerbread cookie, and travel back in time to meet John and Hannah and follow their adventures in finding love again. It’ll warm your heart. Promise.

Based on a scale of 1-5, The Gingerbread Man deserves a 5.
