Ride a Painted Pony

I can only attest to reading one of Kathleen Eagle’s books in the past and it moved so slowly that I was hesitant to try another. Therefore, I must admit that as I began to read Ride a Painted Pony, I was a bit surprised by not only its ability to garner my total attention but also by the feeling ...

A View of the River

When hero and heroine Rochelle LeClair and Birch Trueblood are together, A View of the River is a satisfying, wonderful read. But, sadly, the biggest problem with this book is that they’re just not together enough. In a sort of 50-30-20 mix of women’s fiction, contemporary romance and paran ...

Reason to Believe

A recent post about Kathleen Eagle's books made me stop and think. Why do I love her writing so much? This book is one of the reasons why. Beautiful writing is a given for Kathleen Eagle. She could write stereo instructions and I'd buy them - in hardback. Scenes are never overwritten and no strings ...

Night Falls Like Silk

Night Falls Like Silk is the sequel to Kathleen Eagle's The Night Remembers. I haven't read the earlier book, and if this one is any indication, I don't really want to - even though I've enjoyed the author in the past. Night Falls Like Silk is - well, it's not very clear. It's misty. It's diffuse. I ...

Once Upon A Wedding

The most interesting thing about Once Upon a Wedding is the pretty, pretty cover. Unfortunately, the actual story has the dubious distinction of being one of the most boring books I've read in quite a while. Camille Delonga's daughter, Jordan, is marrying the man of her dreams. J ...

You Never Can Tell

You Never Can Tell is a thoroughly researched and well-written story, as you would expect from Kathleen Eagle. Unfortunately, I felt shortchanged by the human aspects of the story and let down by a lack of romance conveyed. Eagle has been moving away from genre romance for some time now and this bo ...

The Last Good Man

I love Kathleen Eagle. I know of no romance author who creates more realistic, genuine characters, and she has a witty, introspective prose style that is uniquely her own. The Last Good Man tells the story of a rather difficult character's very difficult struggle. Eagle makes it look easy. ...

What The Heart Knows

"Oh, man," I thought, when I read the cover of Kathleen Eagle's new book, "not another secret-baby story!" But saying Eagle has written a secret-baby book is like saying Margaret Mitchell wrote about the Civil War. What the Heart Knows is a finely crafted and moving tale of love, loss, and a chain o ...

The Last True Cowboy

"Women and horses were K.C.'s favorite kind of folks. He had superb instincts about both. Give him five minutes with a sullen woman or a skittish filly and he'd know exactly what she needed. He also had good instincts about fullfilling those needs, and he had turned his instincts into an art form. I ...

The Last True Cowboy

Quiet, like a meandering herd through a sunlit meadow - pretty, but slow-moving - The Last True Cowboy is a very p-a-c-e-d read. It's my first Kathleen Eagle, so I have no personal frame of reference on her other works, but having heard such wonderful things about the author, I was anxious to read t ...
