Secrets don't stay buried long in cattle country Sarah Allen the beautiful girl who humiliated Jackson Raines in high school is back in town Not so long ago she couldn't wait to leave Wind Canyon Wyoming in her dust But recently widowed she has nowhere else to go and finds herself on Jackson's ranch And despite everything Jackson's finding himself relucta. It has been a while since I have disliked a book this muchI really wanted to like this book In fact I ordered the second book in the series with the anticipation of enjoying this first one But the fact is I hated it I could not get into it at all I never got attached to the characters and the storyline never jived with meFirst of all Sarah was beyond cruel to Jackson in High School She ripped out his heart and stomped on it publicly and made sure he was completely humiliated in the process She was evil Jackson still harbors and rightly so a lot of resentment towards Sarah Yet the author expects to me to believe that he puts that all behind him and forgives her fully after a very poor apology I didn’t buy itThere really wasn’t any chemistry between Jackson and Sarah yet Jackson walked around with an erection 999% of the time If I had a dollar for every time the author spoke of Jackson’s erection I would be taking my family out to a very nice dinner tonight My storyline problems stemmed from the fact that I felt like everything was too far fetched I can’t really get into details without offering spoilers but there was stealing evidence from a crime scene and a police helicopter that was deployed on command from a civilian within a 20 minute period of time Oh and lets not forget the FBI forcing Sarah to investigate a criminal matter I realize this is a fiction book but come on There was also a side storyline involving loggers that really served zero purpose except to maybe voice the author’s opinion on commercial loggers I don’t knowI am really bummed I have the second book because I really don’t want to read it But being full of uirks which include finishing books I can’t tolerate and reading books just because they have been purchased and are already on my shelf I will I am hoping that the author stepped things up for the second book because this one was a dismal failureCherise Everhard April 2011

Against the Wind Raines of Wind Canyon #1Nt to get rid of herSarah brings her own kind of trouble and he can't resist trouble Enemies of her dead husband show up making threats thinking she has something they're owed They're not taking no for an answer but what they will take is the one thing she has left her daughter Jackson's the only one who might be able to save little Holly and bring her ho. Against the Wind2 StarsSynopsisFollowing the murder of her abusive husband Sarah Allen returns to her home town in Wyoming to start afresh Unfortunately trouble seems to follow first when she rents a cottage from Jackson Raines the man she rejected and humiliated in high school and then when her husband’s enemies become convinced that she has something they want and are not above kidnapping Sarah’s daughter to get itReviewStarts out really well but becomes exceedingly far fetched as the book progresses There are just too many individual storylines In addition to the main plot in which the heroine has not one but four men out to get her for different reasons there are another two side stories The first involves a tiresome romance between Sarah’s friend and Jackson’s foreman and the second centers on illegal logging which is completely irrelevant and unrelated to the main story Two of these various plot threads remain unresolved at the conclusion Maybe they will come to an end in the next installment but uite frankly I’m not interested enough to find out The main characters are well fleshed out and have an intense chemistry but I did not feel the romance While Jackson’s caring and sensitivity make him an especially appealing character Sarah is annoying and distant I found her need to keep secrets and her inability to trust Jackson with the truth irritating and actually felt that he deserved better I also thought that his initial resentment toward her for the way she treated him in high school was resolved far too easily with a rather weak apologyIn general the book is well written but the flashback scenes in which Sarah remembers what happened to her husband are extremely repetitive in fact the author just copies them word for word each time with a few details added There is also very little build up of tension and suspense and I kept waiting for the something significant to happen Overall a very disappointing read and one of the few books that get my 2 star rating I may not be reading any in the series
