According to her wealthy father, Julietta Brightingham was raised to be a lady in New York society during 1890. She was not supposed to slide down drainpipes, play baseball in Central Park, or, worst of all, want to teach. Teaching was for impoverished young relatives, not for the heiress of the Brightingham fortune.

I found this on the Staff Picks shelf at the library, and decided to give it a try. Mental note: don't ask this particular staff member for future recommendations. Here's why:

1. The writing is amateurish, reading like a Creative Writing class assignment in which the student is required to use at least 20 different adjectives and/or adverbs per paragraph.

2. The prose, like a river that is about to burst its banks and erupt into a waterfall, is dripping with cliches and lame similes, as though a

I grabbed this because I like the idea of a fish out of water teacher moving into a community and both of them being transformed.

I enjoyed the parts about her teaching and the focus on the power of literacy.

The rest of the book was a disappointment.

The sheriff was also the love interest. The fact that he was just a stack of cliches made it extremely difficult to root for their relationship. According to my Kindle the author tells us 10 times in 200 pages that he is 6'6" tall. It jus

I loved the characters, especially julie, even though I thought Jack needed a little something more. This was a charming book though jumpy at a few places. Adorable . A pleasant enjoyable read.
I knew what type of storyline this novel would go, and I enjoyed it! A good summer read with a predictable love story! Love a good western love story, including a school teacher with gumption !
An easy read. A somewhat cheesey romance/western. I enjoyed it.
A fun story, quick read. Enjoyable historical romance of a strong-willed girl running from her past to find happiness and inevitably finding love.
It was a bit of fluff, but a good book for a quick read.
Lost interest...the story is too drawn out...
