3.5 Breaking the curse Stars

Unlucky in Love the 4th book in the Whisper Creek Series was a sweet read. It can be read as a stand alone as I didn't read any of the others and I had no problems. Although I liked the secondary characters so much I kinda wanna go back and read their stories too. This was a clean romance for my friends that don't like the sexy time. But just because this is a clean read didn't mean it was lacking in romance. Lexi and Gunnar had a connection that was coming through t

Whenever I want a heartfelt romance, one which has extra layers added to it... I turn to Maggie McGininnis. Her style of writing lets you tuck in and be taken to a place that is just like that favoritet pocket or groove in the song you love. Her Whisper Creek Series is a perfect example of this type of writing for me.


In this installment, we have Gunnar Peterson... one of the long time ranch hands as the focus. We have meet Gunnar bef

3.5 - "I'm off to find... myself." Stars!

Maggie McGinnis returns to Whisper Creek with the fourth novel from the series; Unlucky In Love.



I have found myself with the last couple of books that I have read by this author, loving most of the aspects of the stories she is telling, but then massively struggling with her characterizations of her female lead. And once again Unlucky in Love fell into that area for me.

"Don’t close the door on possibilities quite yet. You never know what could happen."

Whisper Creek is definitely the place to be! This was the sweetest, emotionally heartwarming story that made your toes curl. I was pleasantly surprised.
This book was a real breath of fresh air!
Throughout the story I had this dreamy and goofy face, and I was utterly picturing this magnificent place. I was transported by the beautiful love story, by the overwhelming feelings and damn by the hot cowboys for sure!

I really have a spot

#4 in the Whisper Creek romance series

Thanks to NetGalley for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I'd rate this a solid 4.5 stars, but I'll round up for Goodreads. This whole book was sweet and loving. I especially loved the ending, which was a total surprise, leaving me with a warm feeling. Typical contemporary romance novels nowadays require lots of hot and steamy sexual scenes--this book had none of them. But it didn't need them. As a matter of fact, they wouldn't have f

Unlucky In Love is the fourth book in the Whisper Creek series but can be read as a stand alone. I have been fortunate enough to read this series from the beginning and highly recommend it but it is not necessary in order to follow along.

Ms. McGinnis has cornered the market on sweet romance because every book of hers I've read falls into that category and UNLUCKY IN LOVE is no different. It's adorable and the characters are simple but very lovable. And, if you're like me, the Whisper Creek ranch would be your next vacation spot, if it were real. Those descriptions of the mountains and the woods make me want to give up city living for the tranquil mountains.

What a sweet romance! I so enjoy going back to Whisper Creek and visit with the swoon worthy cowboys who work the ranch. This is book 4 of the series, but is definitely a stand alone.

Gunnar and Lexi stole my heart immediately, and I couldn't wait to see how they were going to tie each other up in knots.

Lexi, an elementary school nurse, who describes herself as a "cursed" certifiable introvert, has had numerous, disastrous relationships with guys who would ask her out, but then cancel at the las

I LOVED this book and I really enjoyed returning to Whisper Creek! While it's not necessary to have read the prior books to understand and enjoy this story, it was fun to catch up on all the characters I fell in love with in the previous stories. The writing is excellent and there is a nice easy flow to the story.

This review is based on an ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.

I just found this author the other day. I fell in love with her then.and nothing at all has changed that fact. This was a cute little story. Absolutely loved the hero and most of the other characters in the book. I abhorred her choice of heroine though. You can tell that this is part of a bigger better series, but no bell ringing for this one.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group -Loveswept for an ARC of "Unlucky in Love" by Maggie McGinnis. I enjoyed reading this and would recommend it as a charming romance novel. The characters were likeable and the plot was uncomplicated and predictable This was an easy pleasant read. I would read other books in this series.

Alexis needs something new. The man whom she thought was her life partner ditched her right before their wedding. Encouraged by her younger, care-free sister, she creates a new her. She’ll be all the things her ex-fiance wanted her to be. More fun, more adventurous, read for anything. That’ll show him, and he’ll come running back to her open arms.

Unfortunately – or maybe not – fate partnered up with a too-hot-for-words cowboy and came up with a different plan. Gunnar doesn’t deny his attraction

Okay, I’m going to actually say this out loud, admit it and suffer the wrath of females everywhere: I’ve never really gotten the cowboy thing.

But…I’ve had a complete 180 turnaround ever since I finished an ARC of Maggie MacGinnis’s UNLUCKY in LOVE, her soon to be released novel in the Whisper Creek series.

I have definitely found a new author to love!!
I just finished a spectacular new book, Unlucky in Love by an author I have never read before, Maggie McGinnis. I do not know why, I had not previously found her, but I have now. This is fourth book in this series (for which I am immensely grateful). I love an emotional romance, and this one certainly fits that bill. It took me through all of the emotions, from laughter, to the awe level, to the crying level. Needless to say, when I read a book, I lo

This was a sweet and enjoyable read for me. I think everyone needs a "Gunner" in their life. He certainly the book for me. Alexis and Gunner's romance was very sweet and romantic making the book full of warm feelings and happily ever after. It was just what I had been looking for.

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

You know how much I love this series already, but somehow this one snuck out without me knowing. So, I read book five before reading this one, but you can read this series out of order and not get lost, so it was all good.

Lexi has quite the tricky home life. I'm not a fan of her mother or her sister. Plus, her ex-fiance is a complete turd. Needless to say, the girl needs a break, and if I were her, I'd run to Whisper Creek too. Then she meets Gunnar. There is

A Lovely Fast-paced Romance
What I liked most about this novel:
- Likeable characters
- A well-painted canvas for the Montana setting – now I want to visit!
- Several times the story made me laugh out loud
- Aside from a couple of things, the story captivated me

What I didn’t care for as much:
- A mostly predictable ending
- It was trying too hard in the middle, constantly referring to the previous characters' stories – we heard many times how the past 3 sets of couples went through the same thing as t

If John Wayne is your ideal cowboy then meet Gunnar, the new millennium version in Unlucky in Love, book 4 in the Whisper Creek Series by Maggie McGinnis. I truly enjoyed the first three in this series but loved Gunnar and Alexi’s story. I think we can all identify with Alexi who feels as if she is the consolation prize in love, well, until the significant other sees something that they think is better coming along then she is left alone. I appreciate how the author helped Alexi see that she can ...more

The hero in this book, Gunnar, is the absolute perfect book boyfriend. I fell in love with him immediately. Alexis, the heroine unlucky in love, was sweet and adorable. Full of humor throughout, making this an easy read. A surprising thing happens towards the end that shocked me to the core but made the story feasible. I can’t wait to read more from this author as her book read real. Book provided by NetGalley.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the fourth in the series - and having loved the first three I was delighted to get to read and review it. Do read them in order, as the life at Whisper Creek is well worth experiencing from the very beginning.

Be prepared to go through the full range of emotions with this story - I was really laughing at some points, and yet had big tears in my eyes at others, and they were both tears of sadness and of happiness.

I enjoyed this story. Alexis was easy for me to identify with as I am not very adventurous either. Gunnar's determination to help her see that she was best as herself kept me reading this book. This was my second trip to Whisper Creek and I will return. I highly recommend this book and series.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley, and this is my voluntarily given review.
