Heart and humor... Loved this road-trip romance !
Loved the characters, Doc Liz and Katie. Cutter is interesting and complex, and the author created a really great arc from beginning to end, with a background of interesting history. Great discussion on prejudice and where it comes from and how it can distort thinking from both sides of the picture… but also some very nice chuckles throughout. Exciting ending, as usual for TA Crosby. Absolutely love Braden Wright as a narrator, so talented. More than worth the credit.. Oh yeah, even a favorite!
In three words I would say this book is Exciting, Funny, Moving.
How can you have a favourite character in a book like this. Of course you have to love the hero and heroine, but then there is the beautiful little Katy, a couple of wonderful Indians, Katy's grandpa, they all play a part in making the story wonderful.
There are too many wonderful scenes to pick just one from, a lot of my favourites though are where Elizabeth thoroughly exasperates Cutter, they are such lighthearted scenes :D
If this book was made into a film the tag line would have to be something like, 'Cutter and Elizabeth, an unlikely alliance, an adventure ahead of them to fetch her orphaned niece. Is love on the cards, will her niece end up with a new mommy AND daddy. Or will Indians, and Cutter's foes stop them in their tracks?
The story was wonderful, it made me laugh a lot, cry a little, and I really loved it from start to finish. What I also want to add is that the narrator told the story so brilliantly. I love his voice, and the way he spoke Indian, and also when he was Cutter seducing Elizabeth, his voice was captivating! His female character voices were great for a guy, and the way he took the part of the little girl Katy was so sweet. I could listen to this man read books always! Great choice Tanya!
