This book was really great. I loved it. Although the begginning was kinda slow once I got into it I couldnt put it down,and when I did I couldnt wait to pick it up again. I love Tamera's writing style and I cant wait to read her other books.
Remembered by Tamera Alexander is the third book in the Fountain Creek Chronicles, but reading the previous two books isn't necessary to enjoy this romance. Veronique Girard and Jack Brennan have both been devastated by death. Veronique travels to Willow Springs to fulfill her mother's final request to find her longlost father who left Paris to find the family fortune as a miner in Colorado. Jack has given up a life as a wagon driver to become a freighter bringing supplies up the Rocky Mountains to the small isolated mining towns. He becomes her escort and help as she seeks her father in each town, but as they spend time together they come to discover feelings both thought gone. Alexander writes a sweet, safe historical romance. Jack is masculine but gentle man of faith. Veronique is a talented and beautiful if a bit spoiled and naive woman of faith. Alexander doesn't follow cliches by making them initially hate each other; the relationship grows naturally. There are a few messages of faith including not wasting gifts from God, being content with what you have, and depending upon a Heavenly, not earthly, father. It was an enjoyable read, if a bit bland. The plot is fairly straightforward and may not compel interest, and references to previous books may leave readers feeling out of the loop.
I am a Librarian, and when I read the first book, I knew Ms. Alexander had a hit on her hands, so nothing would do but purchase the whole series. I don't think there is anything she could have added to make them any better. I recommend them to all of our patrons and as of now people are still on the reserved list to read this series.Keep up the excellent work Ms.Alexander.
i thought the story was very well written, unfortunately the "romance" part was a little to descriptive for me. i love romantic books, and believe me i have read alot! but i dont think its neccessary to detail such things quite that much. im all for romantic scenes but there is a way to do it that is mabey a little more appropriate.
