Shelves: romance, christian
I picked this up after a recommendation from a friend. I have to say I wasn't impressed. The romance was pretty cute, but the rest of the story fell flat.
There are TONS of characters that flit in and out of the story with little introduction. I am guessing this is my fault for picking up book #2 in a series....not that they are labeled that way on the books (BUT, they are on goodreads!)
The whole reason Zach came home was left open, ok? I guess the author is expecting us to keep read

3.5 Stars. Cute read. A little difficulty in the beginning to keep up with so many minor characters, but the story was a page turner. I'm sure I'll get to the other books in this series

A book starting with a bride running out of the church, away from her cheating groom, and into the arms of the new sheriff in town automatically has a level of heightened expectation. In addition, The Sheriff’s Runaway Bride is the second in the “Rocky Mountain Heirs” series, following a stellar start by Linda Goodnight’s The Nanny’s Homecoming. Would the second installment be as good as the first? Arlene James had her work cut out for her and rises to the challenge by presenting an excellent st ...more

3.5 stars
February 15

The story flowed better than the first book, especially the whole church and community thing was better placed in this book ..
Unlike the first one where it felt forced and didn't add much to the story ..
I'm going to read the rest of the series because I'm really intrigued by how the story would play out, and how it would end for everyone!

Same with 'The Nanny's Homecoming'.....I LOVED EVERYTHING about this book!!!!.....LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT this book, the characters.....LOVED Brooke Clayton's brother, Sheriff Zach Clayton and Kylie Jeanne Jones, who was introduced in 'The Nanny's Homecoming' (the first of the Rocky Mountain Heirs series)....I adored the way Zack and Kylie were introduced to each other....With Kylie literally running straight into new Clayton sheriff, Zack Clayton's arms in her wedding dress....Running out on her ...more

Underneath layers of religious babble is a rather simple story that pretends to be more than it is. It has a lot of references to what i suspect is the authors other stories, but all in all I just ended up feeling annoyed and impatient.
I did like the characters and the language though, when they weren't going on about something religious.

The only thing I don't like about this book, and others in this series, is that there are some mystery/unsolved portions of the book that don't get resolved till the last book, so with as short of book this one it, I just found it to be annoying.

I bought this book because I liked the title, and I wasn't disappointed. It speaks to me and my love of happy endings that after a relationship not working, that a better one comes along at just the right time. :)

Book 2 in the Rocky Mountain Heirs series was a fun read. Zach's story. Like that very early on, the hero and heroine were aware of their attraction to each other and wanted to be together. Conficts were more circumstances than angst, making it a lighter, enjoyable read.
