Shelley's a homebody and Cain's a wandering man. The book itself did not improve with age, but the reader did.

I would actually give it 3.5 but that isn't an option because they only do whole numbers. Some of the language in the book I really could have done without. that is why I gave it a lower rating. I wish it would have had more substance to it. The
Back story: her childhood spent in the wild places, her security issues the decorating business should have been played up and dealt with more in the book. Although Lowelll does do a good job of making the childhood and security issues a barrier between

UGH! I read another by her and loved it so I thought I would try this one. Big mistake! The other one was a suspense type with some romance thrown in. This one was all mush-it had no plot that I could see. To be honest I bailed by page 45, I couldn't take it anymore. Instead of talking about something of substance the characters would go into swimming in the depths of eyes, made the mind leap to thoughts that it hadn't leapt in years, yadda yadda-whatever. I have no idea if this book was actuall ...more

A romance with pets! In this case, Shelley, a "home maker" takes in a boy's snake so his mother won't kill it. In doing so, she starts to open herself up to the boy's uncle Cain as well. Before you know it, they're in love, but she's determined not to give in because he's a "traveling man." A snake, a Main coon cat, and one nephew later, they're practically living together.

This is an author that I have read a lot of and have added her books to my 'keeper' book shelf. Most I have read at least twice and some even more than that. Always in depth characters that anyone can identify with on some level.

I enjoy all of Lowell's books. There is adventure, mystery, romance and laughter. What is not to like!
