I don't know that I've ever had a book twist me and turn me in so many ways. Did I like it? I'm not sure. Was it a compelling story; well-written? Yes to both. Did Jo-Ann Mapson once again make me feel like I was riding a horse in some sunlit canyon right along with her characters? Yes, definitely. But of the three main characters in the book, I only admired one. The other two were memorable and very human, honest, and flawed...and made me almost wish I hadn't read this sequel. I think I might h ...more

I found this book to be rather disappointing after Hank and Chloe. I liked Chloe in Hank and Chloe, but found I just didn't really like her at all in this book. I was debating on whether to finish the book, when I was about half way through, but I wanted to see how it ended, so I read it to the end. I have to say, not one of Jo-Ann Mapson's finest hours....

Having recently become a fan of Jo-Ann Mapson I was drawn to ‘Loving Chloe’ because of the story’s setting – Navajo country in northern Arizona. I’ve made repeated visits to many of the places described in the story, and the novel brought back wonderful memories.

I liked the principle male protagonists – school teacher Hank, Chloe’s partner, and Navajo jeweler Junior Whitebear who has returned to the home of his youth – before fame and fortune enticed him to move, more or less permanently, to the

Well written but so messed up. I'm glad I didn't read the first book. I guess I'm supposed to empathise and understand flawed Chloe for her inability to do what is right and make a choice, and bloody stick to it. And are we supposed to admire the two men for loving her so much that they would just live with her selfishness? both of them are losers and deserve Chloe. But then does Reed deserve to be thrown in the midst of this f#%ked up situation?

Very unsatisfying read!

This is another great book by Jo_Ann Mapson, not the greatest piece of literature but such an insightful and absorbing read!

It is great!.

I highly recommend.

I'm repeating myself, but honestly, anything written by Mapson is going to be a terrific read.

Eh, don't bother. This was about as unsatisfying as a book as I've ever read. I like the author's writing, but this is not a good read. I'd pass.

I've listened to Kate Forbes narrating After the Parade which I didn't really care for but I think it was mostly the stilted language that I didn't like. Her narration of this book was so much better that it confirmed to me it was the book and not her. She portrayed the characters so well that you knew exactly who was speaking and the language/dialogue was so much better than the Garlock book.

Chloe drives her pregnant self to Hank and he's overjoyed to see her, which she wasn't sure about. He's

A sequel to Hank and Chloe that literally picks up just where the other book left off, in Hank’s driveway as Chloe moves to Arizona from California to find him. Pregnant with Hank’s child, they live together in his grandmother’s old house, while Hank teaches third grade at a local Navajo school. Enter Junior Whitebear, returning home after many years away making a name for himself as a Navajo silversmith. The plot thickens as relationships are revealed between Whitebear and some of the local peo ...more

It did not turn out the way many would have wanted, but life is just that way for the most part. Having read Hank and Chloe a long time ago, I should have known that Chloe just would never be like a fairy tale princess and find her one and only true love. Just the same, I wanted her to love Hank who was so wonderful and I guess you can say she did. But then there was Junior who also stole her heart. I doubt this story could ever really happen but in many ways it still is a good love story.

Not my favorite by this author. The characters just didn't seem to work for me although I could identify with Hank when he was struggling to teach the 3rd graders on the Indian reservation. It seem like the book ended then there was one more chapter called Twenty Years Later. Maybe it was suppose to conclude the story but left me with many unanswered questions.
A disappointing sequel to Hank and Chloe. Chloe was an engaging character in the first book, in this she feels somehow one-dimensional and lacking. The love triangle was disturbing and also disappointing, I found myself hoping for Hank all the way through that things would work out. The ending seemed shallow, maybe a little too trendy for me.

This was a good story but after all the hoopla it ended too quickly. I liked the ending, the fact that she couldn't give up either Hank nor Junior. I felt like Jo-Ann Mapson just wanted to end the story.

Arizona is one of my favorite places to visit....this book captures northern Arizona so well that you want to catch the next plane there. Mapson writes characters who are realistic but who also have recognizable flaws....she has created a modern-day romantic western.

JoAnn Mapson creates the most REAL, believable, sympathetic characters. I loved this book just like I loved Hank & Chloe, the book before it.

I enjoy Jo-Ann Mapson's characters - real problems with resolution of some sort.

A great follow up to Hank & Chloe. Life isn't a happy ever after story, it's much to complecated.

How can Chloe love two very different men and not be considered a harlot. It's complicated.
