When we set up the structure for Over The Backyard Fence we reserved the last Monday of the month for book reviews. But since Laurie and I only take two blogs a month each, this Monday is sometimes open and I have to confess when I’ve had it I haven’t been adhering to posting a review.
It certainly isn’t that I don’t read. Oh my gosh I love to read and no matter how busy life is I manage to do more than I probably should.
So correcting my oversight here goes a review. Actually it’s more about the author then the book, Have you ever ‘found’ an new author that isn’t new at all and wondered how you’d missed reading her work? I do this and it’s like waking up Christmas morning to all the wonder of surprises.
In this case I’m even on Marie Force’s blog list. Duh! The only excuse is as much fact as excuse. I have a huge TBR (to be read) pile. But this time I didn’t find “And I Love Her” in it. I picked it up at Safeway two days ago, and yes have already read it. It’s part of her Green Mountain Romance series and I so fell in love with not only Hunter the hot oldest brother but the whole family.
Okay a little about the story. Ms. Force is strong in bringing characters to life. Even the secondary characters, in this case mainly the Abbott family, make you want to read more about them. The book is fast paced with pretty high heat levels that blend into the plot and enhance it. The small town is almost a character in itself and made me feel like I could walk out the door and ‘see’ it.
I’ve been reading some pretty dark mysteries and suspense and “And I Love Her” was a good respite for me. Kind of like cleaning your palatte with sherbert. (I love sherbert too. ☺)
“And I Love Her” is a recent release, March 2015, but Ms. Force has a large backlist to tap into. Thank heavens in todays world they are easy to find and purchase.
