Continuing our posts from Book review Challengers today we have a review from Jessie. She blogs at http://behindthewillows.com
Jessie chose to review “An Englishwoman’s Guide To The Cowboy” By June Kearns.
Here is her review.
For the first time ever I was given a copy of a book to review by it’s author. (Actually what happened was Rosie Amber put out a call for volunteer book reviewers and I stuck my virtual hand in the air and said “Me! Me! Pick me!” – and then the author gave me a copy.)
But when I got the book, I’ll admit, I was a little nervous. Cowboy and Englishwoman romance- it could be awesome, it could be terrible. I’ve exchanged words with a few authors via book reviews before but never before I read the book. What if I hated it? What would I say? What had I agreed to?
Nothing for it, I took a breath, dove in and on the second page surprised myself by snorting out loud in laughter. Worries banished I settled in, ignored everyone I was on vacation with and spent the remainder of the afternoon giggling, snorting and laughing as I thoroughly enjoyed the book!
Would I recommend it? Had you told me that someone could successfully combine Louis L’Amour and Janet Evanovich I would have rolled my eyes. I would have been so, so wrong.
Is the ending a bit too perfect? Yes.
Did it stop my enjoyment of it? Not even a little bit.
