Summary Silver Creek Fire Silver Creek #1

New York Times bestselling author US Navy Veteran and genre pioneer Lindsay McKenna combines pulse pounding suspense with the romance of a contemporary Western for the first installment in her highly emotional engrossingly swoon worthy Silver Creek Fire seriesLove's flame burns brightLeanna Ryan's hometown in coastal Oregon has been her refuge ever since a traumatic event during her teens But over time even the safe. ARC provided by NetGalleyI love books about small town life and romances and was delighted to get this ARC and read a new author In the beginning with Lea and her father discussing her past trauma and her upcoming move the dialog felt forced Like the reader was being told what to think and instantly relate to Lea although she was not a very relatable character because the reader has not yet seen her do anything except wallow in a vague event that happened around 15 years ago Now I m not saying a person would not justly feel trauma after what I assume was a horrible event but I have to assume it because there were no details that made me feel angry or sad on her behalf It was just this event that changed her life Then when she arrives in Wyoming we got not one but two lectures about how bad fracking is OK I respect someone standing by their beliefs and there is certainly merit in the cons as well as the pros to fracking However maybe it would ve been a better idea not to describe the wood shop s heating system in the next few pages as being a gas heat system right after we were lectured on how horrible fracking is which supplies natural gas Seems a bit hypocritical Moving on aside from the car crash in the beginningnothing happens for 25% of the book A lot of talk about types of wood which was interesting in the beginning but went on for way too long I finally decided to give up when Logan had the thought of cupping Lea s elbow as they walked and then he suddenly remembers the whole metoo movement and we get a lecture on how men were taking unconscious unthinking advantage of women and gosh darn it Logan was not going to be one of those guys Yeah that s when I decided to DNF I don t care for stories that have politics in it I read to get away from the real world not be lectured on the author s POV Now authors are certainly welcome to have their opinions and their books are their art and they can do anything they want when writing them I wish them all the success in the world But I will not be reading those booksI thank the publisher for providing me an ARC of this book and I do recommend other readers try this book if it sounds like something you would like This review is my opinion

H remodeling project Her skill her dedication they're as appealing to him as her unaffected beauty But he has other reasons for unease There have been disturbing events around the ranch Then Lea's car is rammed in a hit and run Logan has already lost so much; now he fears he's jeopardizing not only his property but Lea too His dream is to convince Lea to make Silver Creek her home but first he'll have to keep her sa. I gave up 25% of the way in after starting and stopping several times I just coudn t do it The writing was choppy There was no flow The dialogue read as if a child wrote it simple and repetitive The dialogue felt forced and stilted there was no connection betweent the characters They were very one dimensional even though I know that was not the authors purposeThe main character Lea was totally unlikeable She s supposed to be according to her own words a strong willed feminist who stands up for herself and her beliefs Instead she comes across as sniveling and weak needy and completely insecure in herself and her decisions The story was boring and again repetitive I felt as if I was reading the same paragraphs and conversations over and over I am by no means an author and I give lots of credit to those that do write I have read books by this author in the past and enjoyed them Unfortunately as an avid reader who reads across several genres and a multitude of authors I can honestly say that this one just doesn t cut it Thank you netgalley and kensingtonbooks zebra for the eARC
