Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In a prequel to her best-selling The Cowboy, Johnston sweeps us back to the Republic of Texas in the 1840s and into the lives of the early Creeds. Texas Ranger Jarrett Creed and Creighton "Cricket" Stewart (another strong heroine, incidentally) fight for their new republic and struggle to forge a lasting marriage in the process. First published in 1988 as part of her "Sisters of the Lone Star" trilogy and out of print for some time, Frontier Woman will be of particular interest to fans of Johnston's current "Bitter Creek" series, which continues the story of the Creeds into the present. Johnston is a New York Times best-selling writer and lives in Florida.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Take "Cricket" Stewart, the feisty, hard-headed, independent daughter of Rip Stewart, a Texas rancher and pair her with Jarrett Creed, a feisty, hard-headed, independent Texas Ranger and this book crackles with fireworks on almost every page! Initially I didn't think I was going to care for the rebellious Cricket as a romantic interest for the handsome Ranger because she seemed spoiled in a childlike way, talked rough and even turned into a once a month drunk to quell the pains her monthly cycle brought on. Somehow I didn't see how she'd ever turn into a woman that Creed would be interested in. But, as the story progressed and her interest in the Ranger increased, a gentle, less abrasive heroine begins to take form. Before long she's a perfect match in this tender yet still explosive romance with the dynamic Texas Ranger. I understand that this is the first in the BITTERCREEK series that will include Crickets sisters Sloan and Bay. FRONTIER WOMAN gives enough information about both these women in the storyline to give strong clues that these two women are also going to make for interesting reading. I'm looking forward to their stories as well.

This was a difficult book to read. While it's nice to read about a strong heroine, it's another to read about an unreasonable brat, which is what Cricket was. This woman was like a plague leaving destruction and mayhem in her wake. It was unrealistic that she could be the reason for her sister-in-law's tragedy and not only did she not face any consequences, but she did not learn a lesson and she continued on as before. I am happy that this wasn't the first book I read from JJ... it would have been my last.

Cricket Stewart is the youngest of Rip's daughters, the rebel. She's opinionated, dresses and fights like a man. Jared Creed, a Texas Ranger who spent many years as a Comanche brave, is her match in every way. From him, Cricket learns to accept and love her femininity, and still retain her fiery spirit. This book was the first in a series to feature three daughters who are unusual for their time, when women were considered inferior. I found myself encouraging Cricket to let go of her fears of being a woman and Jared for being the man to do it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Creighton "Cricket" Stewart is a woman of many means, a woman of strength, a woman who would rather live as a man, until Jarrett Creed. Jarrett Creed, a Texas Ranger, who also, like Cricket, is a loner, until he meets Cricket Stewart. The two meet during a time of Comanche raids and the Wild West, before it was won.
Their story takes them across Texas and into New Orleans and back again, all to save Cricket's sister, Sloan and the Texas frontier. The last thing the two expect is to fall in love...
*****Another five stars from me. This book I approached apprehensively, (I'm not really into these types of novels) but I found that I could not put it down! This novel was wonderful, full of character and humor. I was reading it on my breaks and people were staring at me because I was laughing so hard. This is definitely a good read, and now I'm looking forward the rest of this series called Bitter Creek. *****

Joan Johnston is a wonderful author and I've rated many of her books as keepers...but this one misses the mark. It starts out fine. A man wants a dynasty and plans for 3 sons but, alas, he has 3 daughters so he just raises them as sons. They are each unique, beautiful women living their lives as they've been taught by the father they love and admire. Naturally things happen and they each learn that they are more vulnerable than they knew and that everyone needs love...and that being a woman doesn't mean giving up their independent thoughts and lives.
While the youngest was "the brat in buckskins" she didn't know any different and I loved her fiesty nature. It was a hoot. Sister Bay was the gentle gal, and Sloan the heir apparent so Cricket could be as outrageous as she chose, except that her father now decided she should marry..whoops. The middle of the book drags and though the writing is good, having Cricket "made into a lady" gets a bid tedious and demeaning. I really liked the characters and enjoyed much of the dialogue. It just didn't make the overall quality that I expect from this author. (Pick up the bodyguard, the bridegroom, the texan and several others instead of this one!!)

I have to agree with other reviewers who were put off by the main character's careless ways. As she indulged in incident after incident that not only endangered her own life but brought loved ones to the brink of death, her character almost ruined the story. At that point I'm more disappointed with the writer. Having a main character that careless/stupid/thoughtless is just a short-hand way of advancing the plot. Yes, she did mature some emotionally and that made her more endearing. But those character lapses where she caused death and destruction were so fateful they almost took me out of the story. I began to think, "Come on, Joan, couldn't you come up with some other character/incident to move the plot along?" I enjoy the story more when the main character is admirable. It's escapist reading and I'm not entertained by silly, selfish main characters. Plus, it kind of makes the hero look bad when the woman is a fluff-head.

Anyway, I gave the story three stars because it was still a fun read (when you didnt' want to choke the main character) and I like the "preview" of the sisters' stories.
