Not for me
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 9, 2022
I've been reading Ms. Anderson's back catalog, the Western historicals for the most part, and really enjoying them. This is the first contemporary I've read by her, and unfortunately, I didn't like it all that much. It was fine, I guess, but the plot was unbelievable with a multi-millionaire riding box cars for two years and drinking only to give up alcohol without much of an issue. She writes to a formula, and while alpha males work well in historicals, here Rafe seems more of a bully to poor Maggie.
I'll just go back to her historicals and immerse myself there.
