Ghost from the Past (Cattle Valley #22)
Happily settled in Cattle Valley with the men he loved, Rio Adega wasn't expecting the one call that could bring his world crashing down around him. "Rio, it's Chet. You'd better brace yourself, old friend. Ghost has been recovered, alive. He's asking for you."
In less than a minute, Rio's loyalties are tested. Ghost. The one man R...more

Same shit every time. Ryan and Nate ignore Rio. Don't give a shit...more
Carol Lynne is one of the few authors, where I actually believe her characters and believe her menages. They are not perfect; both as characters, but also as a relationship. There are problems to overcome and jealousy to push past, as well.
A threesome isn't like a 'no...more
I found this disappointing, because there was nothing at stake. There was never any real danger of Rio leaving his relationship. Think about the love triangle in the Notebook. Sure you knew who she belonged with, but the other choice was equally perfect. By making Ghost a jerk, it was clear that Rio wouldn't leave the lovely Nate and the steadfast Ryan. I wish there had been more drama, more at stake. Rio...more
Rio faces one of the most difficult situations possible when a lover from the past reappears. The threat to their family is obvious to him as well as Ryan and Na...more
I must say that this is definitely the best written book by Carol Lynne I've read. It has a wide range of emotions and there's great conflict. Seriously, I teared up more than once, and I hardly ever do that.
I gulped the book down in three hours and that's fast reading for me. Now, this may be TMI, but I peed, brushed my teeth, prepared breakfast and then ate without taking my eyes off my Kindle for a fraction of a...more
The crowing jewel of Carol Lynne's Cattle Valley Series. Yes, I loved Cattle Valley: Sweet Topping and Cattle Valley Days, but Ghost from the Past is officially my favorite now.
This angsty story delves in the Rio's past, and the begging of his relationship with Ryan. When the past catches up with the present, the strenght of the love between Rio, Ryan and Nate is tested again and again. A fabulous plot, incredibly well developed characters and a wealth of emotional impact make this book...more
The main characters have matured and changed from when they first appeared many many books ago. They are thrown into a situation which could not have been predicted and are able to handle it with grace.
What would any of us do if an old love came back, what would our current partner(s) do? (Most of us only get one partner...)
The ending was satisfying,...more
Another fast, easy read from Carol Lynne.
I really do love this 3some, all of them. I'm glad we got to see a peek of Rio and Ryan's past and I would've liked to read about them even more. After all we did get a lot of Nate's story before.
It was everything you expect from another Cattle Valley-book, for better and for worse as usual. Nothing ground-breaking, nothing omg/wow and certainly nothing new. But yes, I spent a couple of hours reading this on Valentine's Day and I'm not regretting letting...more
I liked the dynamics in their relationship.
I love this triad - love how they work things out and support each other, love how they kiss hello and goodbye every single time and wow, yeah, love how they coordinate so well...more
I was expecting more conflict because of Ghost but all of the conflict was pretty much lack of communication and lack of an equal relationship.
All ghost did was make Ryan and Nate realize someone out there would actually fight for Rio and they would have to stop treating him like shit and taking advantage of Rio even still there were only a couple scenes of with Ghost in it.
Now, I have to wait impatiently for the next book.
Still a very solid read from CL.
I can't really say much. 'It's a Carol Lynne' seems enough. If you liked this series, Ghost from the Past should be a 5-star book for you. My 3.5 stars is merely based on my overall rating of the books I read, not the book itself.
