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.

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.

There is a reason it took me so long to finish this book - it's awful. Waste of my time.

A mystery, a western, a romance. Meh. Recommended by a friend but not my cup of tea. Cliched ending, don't waste your time.

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.

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.

Great read! This is my kind of book. Daily gives you a reason to want to know more from the first few pages on through to the last few pages of the book where there is still yet another twist. This is my first Daily book but now I know to put her on my to read list of authors. I loved the way she painted a picture of Glory and Luke's ranch so well that I had the entire area pictured in my mind. The only complaints I could give on this book would be that I want to know what the future of Luke and ...more

This is wonderful mind candy. Full of cowboys, missing gold, intertwined relationships and a happy ending.

It's a Janet Dailey book. They always tend to be the same. It's something to read.

I didn't finish this book. I don't really enjoy books where the heroine is so helpless and has to be rescued all the time so that I more my preference. I eventually quit reading it and returned the book to the library.

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

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.

This was a pretty good book but it wasn't really something I went crazy for. The story line was quite interesting but the romance was completely missing from a story that I think could have used it. The ending as well was a little anticlimactic. Overall, not so bad a read.

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

September 2011 Joyce Smith book about a granddaughter who goes to Wyoming to claim her grandfather's body. Good Story.

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 Dailey always a great read. Loved her Calder series best.

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!

Listened to this audiobook when I wanted a brainless story. It was certainly predictable, but if you want an easy read with no thinking, it's ok.

Ehhh... nice story - but what a fairytale happy ending! Not really realistic.

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.

I like this kind of story to listen to in my car.
