Black Tree Moon Reviews
Predictable, easy romance read. At least I didn't put it down, and how can you really complain about a love story? But honestly, took me 3 days and had yet another boring, "good" heroine and the "bad boy" type. I remember reading one of these that had a charming, funny hero that was described as handsome but not gorgeous. THAT I liked, real.I had bought a box full of Silhoutte's from eBay years ago because one heroine had the same name I do (which is unusual) and periodically I cleanse my palate with a fluffy romance. Now onto something more meaty, I think.
I love this book, and every summer when the fire season starts it's time to bring it out and read it again. Hannah works as a counselor in a women's center in Deadwood, SD. She doesn't know, when she and her women picket a bar in protest to all the gambling that is making havoc of their lives, that the owner happens to be her neighbor. If ever there were two opposites, it's Hannah and Race. Hannah is the orphaned daughter of missionaries, for whom right and wrong are very clear. Race is the illegitimate son of one of the women in her center, the owner of a bar/casino, and a smoke jumper. Right and wrong are much more flexible to him. They share the same part of a lake, and while innocently playing in the water - he swims, she doesn't, he gambles, she doesn't - they slowly get to know each other. Their courtship is utterly charming, playing in the lake, bringing over food, even a dinner out and an evening under the stars where nothing happens. Not that he doesn't try. She finds that under the devil- may- care exterior is a fascinating man. He finds that her principles are more than skin-deep. In spite of those principles, or maybe because of them, he is drawn to her over and over again.The fire season takes him away, and while they are apart they discover what has been happening between the two of them. Then, when he's miles away, the fire moves toward Deadwood - and Hannah's cabin.Another winner for Kathleen Eagle. A book to treasure and read over and over again. And I sure hope Kindle gets a copy of it because this is another book I'm reading to pieces.
I mean, I was gonna give it two stars just for the heck of it, but then (view spoiler)[the hero fingers the heroine while they're trapped in a canoe in the middle of a lake while the forest (and their cabins) burns down around them on all sides (hide spoiler)], and like, my suspension of disbelief only goes so far.
