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 etails 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 Agricultural Innovation in the Early Islamic World 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 finallyecided 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 DYA (1933-1939) (Libros sobre el Opus Dei) darn it Logan was not going to be one of those guys Yeah that s when Iecided to DNF I Big Book of AA All 12 Steps Understand and Complete One Step At A Time in Recovery with Alcoholics Anonymous 12 of 12 Books 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 cano 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 New Writing, New Approaches (African Literature Today, Vol. 12) do recommend other readers try this book if it sounds like something you would like This review is my opinion SILVER CREEK FIRE by Lindsay McKenna is the first book in the Silver Creek contemporary romance series The protagonists are Leanna Lea Ryan and Logan Anderson Lea experienced a traumatic event when she was a teenager and went from being an extrovert to seeking a safe harbor She concentrated on following in her father s footsteps and became a master carpenter and wood sculptor At age 29 she finallyecides to take a commission in Wyoming to Culture and Development in Africa (Comparative Studies in African/Caribbean Literature Series) do some remodeling work on Logan s Wild Goose Ranch But all is not calm at the ranch Will Lea come out of her shell Who is causing theisturbing events that are happening at the ranchBoth Lea and Ryan are likeable characters They have similar values but have approached life very The Alien Huntress Series Alien Huntress differently Their flaws and virtues came through and they wereefinitely individuals you could root for They seemed to balance each other Both had clear goals that influenced the plot and had believable motivations The secondary characters were not uite as well Activism and the American Novel developed but theyid enhance the story rather than overwhelming it The world building was good and this book also served as an introduction to the community and its traditions The story line Agriculture at a Glance Revised Edition does emphasize taking care of the environment and the negatives associated with fracking There is one steamy scene at about 90% in the book Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this novel It was an entertaining book that was emotionally intense It also had a few idiosyncrasies and surprises and just enough suspense to balance things out Additionally the authorid a good job of meshing the romance and the suspense without either suffering If you are a fan of contemporary romances with a bit of suspense and without instant love then you may want to check this one out I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series Kensington Books Zebra and Lindsay McKenna provided a complimentary A Love No Less Two Centuries of African American Love Letters digital ARC of this novel via NetGalley This is my honest review Opinions are mine alone and are not biased in any way Review to come around Sept 27th 2020 one month prior to publication.
