Review: Refuge by Willa J. Brand (2020)

Heat Factor: Smoulder, smoulder my friends (but behind closed doors)

Character Chemistry: They just kind of systematically click on every level from the first moment.

Plot: Taylor is escaping an abusive marriage with her infant son when her car breaks down in Montana. When she’s rescued and hired by a local rancher, she ends up meeting the rancher’s wife’s brother, Owen, whose steady and secure nature is kind of exactly what she needs.

Overall: This book is SO well done–the worry over Taylor’s precarious and abusive situation, the warmth from the ranchers and the beauty of Montana…it’s really good stuff.

Review: Letters and Lies by Colleen L Donnelly (2020)

Heat Factor: It’s not ‘hot’, but don’t let it deter you.

Character Chemistry: You hope she’ll fall for the hero but there’s so much else going on it’s not a sole focus.

But when she lies to a US Marshal and ends up in a dismal little town in desperate need of saving, Louise can’t help but jump right in… 

Overall: This is not a steamy, relationship-driven romance but it’s darn good and it sticks with you.
