I won this book through GoodReads. It is tiny with large font. Similar to a mills and boon size book and large font. Now don't get me wrong, as I love me a good mills and boon! But after wading through four pages of "praise" about her previous non-fiction book (Renting With Rex) and six pages of acknowledgements to her four dogs, I just couldn't sink my teeth into the historic story at all. I'll give this away on BookCrossing and hope that someone else has better luck than me.

I won this book through Goodreads First Reads. My thanks go out to the author, publisher, and website for getting me this book.

This book is the background story of Will Austin. Basically, nothing happens in the present time in the novel. Pretty much all the events take place in the past and when this usually happens in books, they relate it to something that will happen later on. I thought that this book was incomplete. I felt like they could have combined a couple of the books in the series to

I received this through the GoodReads Giveaway.

This book is tiny. It is just slightly bigger than my hand and I have small hands! I wonder if it is to evoke the feeling of a dime store novel that the cowboys used to carrying on their trail rides. The fond is regular sized so no worries there.

This book sets up the life of Will Austin, who hails from Boston, travelled to Texas to become a ranger and ended up as a sheriff in Roma, Texas. When we meet him, he has been shot and is the lone survivor

I received this as a Goodreads First read.

THis book made very easy reading, and easy to finish in a few hours. I must admit I was perhaps expecting a little more action as it just appeared to concentrate on the life history of the main characters Will and Elizabeth, however, if this is the first in a series, then perhaps it will give good grounding for the characters for furure stories.

All in all a pleasant read though and does give a good taster of life in the deep south/mexico in the late 1800

I received this book from the Goodreads book giveaway.

This was definitely a "quick read". It's listed as the first book in the Will Austin Adventure Series. I'm not a big "Western" fan and I thought I would have to muddle through the pages to try to finish this book but that wasn't the case. I actually enjoyed the book.

I am interested to see what Ms. Phillips will write in the future.

sorry to say i was a little disappointed in this book. overall idea was good, but just seemed to lack something. i was looking forward to a good old western - something i haven't read in a long time. sorry, but a bit of a let down for me
