Review: Pieces of Sky by Kaki Warner
From: The library
This book was the first thing I read after my overwhelming desire to switch up the genres! And it was seriously just what I needed. Real world, real guys, real situations.
The story is about a girl, Jessica, who is fleeing a pretty terrible situation in England. She is searching for her brother to help her, in Texas(or New Mexico) I think, but on the way there's quite the stage coach mishap. Who comes to her rescue but a horse ridin', cow wranglin', rough and tough cowboy! :) Suddenly, she finds herself mixed up in his life, which isn't too perfect either. Both of them have major issues and together they just might figure things out.
Great story. I had a great time getting all mixed up in it and rooting for the both of them. There were moments of so called "bodice ripping" situations, but it wasn't too abundant and not overly graphic, so I was okay with it all.
And now I understand that this is the first of a trilogy and there's two other books about the other cowboy brothers. (Yes, there wasn't just one cowboy dude, but three!) So I look forward to reading some more about wild west adventures.
Bottom line: I totally enjoyed it!
