Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 167 - The Pines of Winder Ranch by RaeAnne Thane, A Cowboy's Courage by Vicki Lewis Thompson, Year One by Nora Roberts

The Pines of Winder Ranch: A Cold Creek Homecoming\A Cold Creek ReunionThe Pines of Winder Ranch: A Cold Creek Homecoming\A Cold Creek Reunion by RaeAnne Thayne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in return for an honest review. My copy only contained A Cold Creek Reunion. I though it was a nice story but I kept wondering why the two really broke up ten years ago. The reason seemed a little contrived. Other than that there were cute kids, a nice dog and two people who belonged together but were having trouble trusting because of the past. I did like that one of the kids was special needs and this showed how loving she was.

A Cowboy's Courage (The McGavin Brothers Book 5)A Cowboy's Courage by Vicki Lewis Thompson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Trevor McGavin and Olivia Shaw have a lot to overcome. Olivia is still loves her husband who died three years ago. She finds Trevor very attractive but does not see how she can love another. Trevor is the last McGavin to find his HEA. I loved how patient Trevor was giving Olivia space to decide if she could give in to her attraction. There was an event that helped Olivia see that she could love her late husband and love Trevor. I thought it was a nice way to open her eyes.

Year One (Chronicles of The One, #1)Year One by Nora Roberts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What happens when most of the people in the world die and some who live are changed. That is what Nora Roberts addresses in Year One. The book follows several different groups as the Doom changes the world. Each has to follow a different path but they do finally meet. Then after being invested in some very interesting characters something happens and the book follows only one character. There is a lot of foreshadowing in the story line. The world Roberts builds is pretty grim. While some people just want to build a new life others turn to evil. It was interesting enough that I want to see what happens in the next book. I got this as an audio book.
