A Gentleman for Dry Creek
By: Janet Tronstad

This is the second book in the Dry Creek series. You do not need to read these in order to figure out what is going on or who is who, but I thought it would be fun to review them in order. At the end of An Angel for Dry Creek, we meet Garth Elkton and Sylvia Bannister. She comes to Dry Creek and ends up in a ditch. Garth rescues her. At the end, she goes back to Seattle.
A Gentleman for Dry Creek picks up Garth’s and Sylvia’s stories. Sylvia works wi

I'm enjoying seeing characters grow and develop in the series. This book gets off to a slow start, and then it picks up into something really nice. Don't skip this book if you plan to read the next one. The plots are tightly interconnected, and you won't understand what's happening in the next book if you don't read this one.

A struggle to finish this book. I think the reader was supposed to amused but it was all just too absurd for me.
I am enjoying the series so far but this book was not my favorite. I felt the main characters of this book where overlooked really. The author introduced the next books main characters as well as the book after that in this book and I felt it was too much and I never got connected to the main characters and was more interested in the next book then this one. Its a must read though if your going to read the next in the series. Over all though not a bad book just too many new characters at once.

A Gentleman for Dry Creek was a decent enough, rather entertaining read for its majority. I love the connection with characters from the previous book in the series, and the introduction to what may come in the next installment. I love the setting and the writing style. This isn't your mama's Harlequin, however, the story fell horribly apart near the end, going of in too many directions, which accounts for the lower star rating.
Garth Elkton fell in love when he found Sylvia Bannister in her wrecked car in a snow bank. She was looking for a camp for the youth group she taught, He being a cowboy roped her into using his ranch.
Story includes rustlers, kidnappers , secret federal agents, a pilot and chef tied together, a rich old lady, 31 teenagers.
I can't wait to get started on the next book in the series

A Bride for Dry Creek.
