To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.

She was researching for her dissertation for her PHD on women in rodeo from years past to present. He thinks she is a spoiled little eastern girl. The sparks fly and there is quite a mystery to solve as well. Loved reading this.
Dallas come across as insensitive and annoying, Patience is kind of judgy and condescending, and almost one hundred pages in, nothing makes me inclined to finish. Not fair to rate when I can’t finish but no other options
This was my first Kat Martin book and will probably be my last. I bought this book after reading all of the glowing reviews it got and boy was I disapointed! The characters had potential but the authuor chose to focus on the mystery instead. The drama was not believable, I mean how many accidents can possibly happen to one group of people over the course of a summer?
It seems like every book I pick up recently is a romantic suspense and some of the authors just need to write romance stories and stop wasting their time and mine with mediocre crime drama.

I thought I was reading the same pages over and over again, one could have taken out the middle 50 pages (at least, the editor should have) and not miss a thing that furthers the plot (the heroine and the hero are attracted, fight it, make love, are attracted, fight it, make love, etc., etc.). Furthermore, Ms Martin feeds all possible clichés there are about the entire set of characters, it's almost funny (all cowboys are rugged, all women are feisty, even the horses are either powerful (male) or dapper (female). I just finish this book because I am too conscientious and I finish all the books, but I leave out two pages at a time and I do not know the difference.
