Life in Glory, Wyoming, population fifty-one, isn't exactly exciting. The dusty old town isn't even on the map. And for rancher Luke McCallister, that's just fine. Broke

A "formula" book. Predictable plot. The only time I took notice was when the old ranch hand said "whom do you suppose..." I kept thinking that maybe he was really someone in disguise - more likely just an editing error.
Eh. This book could've really used an epilogue. It's classified as a romance but there's really very little of that. It's not a bad story, just not as involved and finished as it could have been.
It was ok. I figured out the big secret about 1/4 the way into the book, and there wasn't even that much romance. I like a lot of romance, so I was disappointed in that.
I couldn't wait to finish this boring book, and I did not like the ending.
First time with this author, don't think I'll read any more.
A mystery, a western, a romance. Meh. Recommended by a friend but not my cup of tea. Cliched ending, don't waste your time.
There is a reason it took me so long to finish this book - it's awful. Waste of my time.
this was such a sweet read. For a change I read a book that really just focused on the characters and the story. I loved reading how each of the characters showed what their weaknesses were and as the story progressed they started to confront each of their issues and began to realize that all they really wanted was already right there in front of them. It was easy to relate with each of the characters as well and understand why they felt the way they did because I think each of us have been in t ...more
Well, while the story was cute, I found the writing in this one overly melodramatic. Let's face it, do I need details about 'why' he drank his milk (to flush his half chewed food) or us it enough to just say he sipped his milk? I realized half way through that the author used to write romance novels and that explained a lot. There was just far to much detail in the wrong things. Still, the story was cute and I DID finish it! So, I don't know that I'd pick up another of her books or not. The char ...more
An okay, easy read but very predictable.
fun story with a happy ending
I really enjoyed this book. It was a beautiful story set in the beautiful state of Wyoming about a woman in possession of a letter from her great, great grandfather that tells where he hid the gold after a train robbery before he was hanged for his crime. A story of family, loss, greed, love. Loved it.
Best lines:

On one hand, a man would be a champion fool to look for something that isn't there. But on the other, what if it is, and he just sits on his duff? It strikes me that fella is dumber than the first
Wyoming cowboy, Iowa farmgirl, a town so small it isn't even on the map, its gossipy proprietor and buried treasure! Several interesting characters make this a pretty good Western adventure!
An enjoyable, easy read. I liked the book. A tad predictable in the end but interesting story. A little bit of potential love but not a romance. A mystery. I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could.

Nice, easy read - like most Janet Dailey books. I wanted more of a romance, though, and although there is some, the book ends before the romance really blossoms.
Jenny Bushman
It's nice to read a book every once in a while where you don't have to think. Not much to this one, but I enjoyed it--I usually enjoy everything I read!
I really liked the ending to this book. It made me think about all the things I sometimes take for granted that I have in my life.
Janet Daily still keeps me entertained after all these years. This is a nice paced story with just the right touch of intrigue.
I liked this one a lot- strong characters but the hint of romance- some mystery and the 'ol "search for the lost treasure" too!
September 2011 Joyce Smith book about a granddaughter who goes to Wyoming to claim her grandfather's body. Good Story.
Sara Smith
Thought this was just a romance, but actually had somewhat of a treasure hunt searching for gold.
Helen Peter
A story of a woman's search for buried treasure and the journey to find it.
Ehhh... nice story - but what a fairytale happy ending! Not really realistic.
I liked this "brain candy", but I wasn't crazy about the ending.
I like this kind of story to listen to in my car.
Fun read, but I thought it was predictable.
Not really any romance but a good book.
