DNF for me on the first book in this series and although I own the rest of the series I will not be reading it. I could feel it putting me into a slump and so I've elected to put it down and move onto something else.
great read. I love books that challenge my own faith and make me strive to be a stronger person in God. this book fit that bill. set in the late 1800s in Colorado, the characters are believable and the personal struggles surrounding them are relatable. Wick does a good job of letting the story unfold.

Out of the many Lori Wick books I have read this book will always remain #1 for a long time.
Sweet story. Predictable. Want to shake the characters for their emotional assumptions.

Please see my review here:
I find that I keep reading Wick's books even though the endings are predictable. There is something about the innocence in her pioneer books that is soothing to me. Still, I'm conflicted as to whether I would recommend them to someone.

This particular book follows a character that didn't play a big part in Where the Wild Rose Blooms , but he still caught my attention. He and his boss' daughter are thrown into a marriage of convenience and go along a bumpy road to turn it into a real relationship

Rocky Mountain Memories #2
Whispers of Moonlight by Lori Wick
The time frame on this book completely contains the first book in this series. It starts years before the first book and ends some years after it. We finally get to hear the whole story behind Travis Buchanan's comment to Robert Langley, when he told him that he was already married. Definitely worth the read!

When Travis and Rebecca marry, rumors quickly spread that he has done so only for her dying father’s ranch. Confused and convinced that Travis can never truly love her, Rebecca strikes out on her own. She disappears to make a new life for herself in a town far away, but her friends there are few, and life is hard.

When desperate circumstances drive Rebecca home to Travis, she can see the change in the man she left behind. In her absence, he has grown from a rough–hewn cowboy to a confident ranche

Ok... I feel a bit bad. I skipped through chunks of this book because I just wanted to find out how it ended, and there were some parts in which I just wasn't interested. If I ever give it a reread, I'll read the whole thing. I was just in a bit of a hurry to find out how things happened.

The characters had a lot of substance. The main character was a feisty piece of works, albeit a bit whiney. That said, it was a contrast to many other of Lori Wick's female characters who are lovely and demure a

The most valuable thing for me about Lori Wick's books is that her characters REALLY depend on Heavenly Father. It is a strong reminder that I, many times, try to take too much of burdens on myself when we are clearly counseled by our Lord to lay our burdens at His feet. That is what Lori Wick's stories are about-oh and romance! Clean and very easily read-maybe too easy sometimes so that they become a bit tedious.
Jan 06, 2015 Cheryl rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
What could be an otherwise good book gets ruined by Lori Wick's incessant need to write characters that judge other Christians as doomed to hell because they don't believe exactly the same way. blech

I also found it rather unbelievable that Rebecca would run away to nowhere in particular with no skills whatsoever in the Wild West and not return to her husband who she had previously liked.

I liked the Colorado setting but that was about it.

When I think back on the main characters of this particular story I wonder if I can see clearly just how immature I was at the same age. Have an inkling that I may view myself with rose colored glasses rather than recognizing my own immaturity probably equaled or exceeded this young girls. Hopefully not too much.
I actually would like to have this one combined with its predecessor. It would be more interesting to follow if Wick had taken a page from Bud MacFarlane, and take us back and forth from a bunch of characters we care about -- it was hard to like Angel and Preston, and I would have spent more time in Boulder.

Just read almost the entire book today. Started it yesterday and was sick so read the entire thing today. I loved it. Travis Buchanan...*sigh* I want a man like Travis Buchanan. Great book. Typical Lori Wick, loved it. Highly recommended for fans of her books or fans of christian romance.

I liked this book better than the preceeding, which was WHERE THE WILD ROSE BLOOMS. I jumped in and was hooked.

I didn't like about half of this book. It took a lot to get into. The last third of the book I did like but the only reason why I didn't stop reading was that I wanted to read more of the series and I have always really liked Lori Wick's books.

I've grown really tired of Lori Wick's heroines in her novels. They are so frustrating - I felt like I was on a merry go round of crazy reading about the weak, whiny female characters. I won't read any more of her books...

A simple love story, that had quite an abrupt ending given how much detail there was in developing the whole story through. This turned out to be very much related to Christianity and turning to the word of God, but the author's ending was not forceful and quite acceptable for me :)

The main character - Rebecca - starts out being fiesty and strong, if awful naive but then turns into a dense person. She ruined what was an OK story. The one thing I liked about it at the end of the book she has not accepted Christ which is more like real life.
May 09, 2013 Anne rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
The only reason I kept reading was because I couldn't get to the library to get something else. Rebecca is a barely tolerable character. The story is repetitive. Also found contemporary ideas about Christianity stuck in this historical story very jarring. Will not read more by this author.

I loved the "Place called Home" series...I thought this would be more like the same but I didn't like this book as much as the first but I am going to read the third...

The book started out slow and it took me till about 50 pages of slow reading till I really got into it. :)

Another nice Christian romance book. I love that these books are such fast reads. I can be finished with it in 2-3 days.

I enjoyed this book, but I thought it was really interesting that Rebecca never excepted Jesus as her was very unlike Lori Wick to end a story like that. Nevertheless, I liked it.

I found this book a little too long, the characters a bit arrogant however still a very wholesome read. And therefore a good read!

I love Lori Wick. I was frustrated with Rebecca in this story. I loved how Travis related to the boys and how Lori shares Jesus throughout the book. Overall, enjoyed the story.

I was very entertained by this story. It was nice to follow someone's life that was learning to follow Christ and then how he shared with those around him.

What a cool book. I love Lori Wicks books & got sucked into this one just as much as any other.

This is the 2nd book in the Rocky Mountain memories series.
