Good clean story.

I skipped through to several section ahead, and still nothing but heavy-breathing romance, so i gave up and deleted it.

I found the story line predictable but none the less it held my interest.

I didn't think I would like this book because I am not into the Mexican/American scene or property development, but I ended up enjoying this story. The plot moves along quickly so it doesn't get boring; I found the characters realistic and they enriched the story. Although I thought the mystery was rather easy to solve I found it very interesting and enjoyable. This book is well worth reading.

I really liked "As the Crow Dies," a clever, interesting plot and unusual characters. So, I decided to try this as a Kindle Sample. It started out interestingly enough, so I bought it, but it turned out to be nothing but a romance novel.

I kept going for a while as it devolved into a bodice-ripper. I skipped through to several section ahead, and still nothing but
heavy-breathing romance, so i gave up and deleted it.

This should have been labeled for what it was, but I got caught because the previous book of his that was so good. Never again.

Taking a Stand is a quick read. After reading a couple of great Bell Bridge books I decided that I should give this one a shot.
And I wasn't wrong. It was awesome. Ken Casper's writing was very good, and the characters were built beautifully.
This was very enjoyable book and I can't wait to buy an actual copy.

In this day-in-age, when even some of the best authors feel the need to beef up their books with porn throughout the entire book....here's a very good author who can write a good romance without loads of explicit sex scenes!!! Hurrah!! (If you really look at many of the so-called romance novels, they're poorly written... and sell only because they are either porn, or border on porn. Sad.

The story begins with a heart-stopping small plane landing under extremely tense circumstances. The description of the event puts you right in the cockpit with the pilot. From there the story quickly takes off and you find yourself in the middle of a real estate venture that could spell disaster for local citizens of a low-income housing area; citizens who cannot afford to improve their everyday existence--they are just living one day at a time. It is a good, fast-paced read. The story moves along quickly, but goes into enough depth that it flows smoothly. I thought it was a very enjoyable read and look forward to reading more by this author.

Received from Netgalley for review, thank you.

Tori Carr, just honorably discharged from the Air Force and flying home in her own Twin Cessna, is a nicely built character. That is, of course she's gorgeous - a tall leggy blonde - but her construction on the page is equally well done. She is more than the pretty: she is committed to achieving her dream of flying for a living, which the Air Force did not provide her. In the meantime, she has come home to work with her father in the business he started, Carr Enterprises, a high level real estate developer. She goes straight to work on the Riverbend Project, the multi-million-dollar plan to take the Santa Marta district of town - the rundown and ramshackle Barrio - and develop the heck out of it into a high-priced community, golf courses and all.

Problem is, a decent sized chunk of the area on which Carr Ent. wants to build is owned by another company, Amorado Construction. Jesse Amorado, who inherited the company from his father, is of Mexican descent, as are the other inhabitants of the neighborhood (for he not only owns the area but lives there), and knows better than anyone how strong the ties of neighborhood can be. This is not something anyone in that district is willing to sell ... although the inhabitants who live in homes that have been bought by Carr Enterprises, Jesse tells Tori, have been left with little choice. She is informed that her father's company has refrained from making even necessary repairs on the houses they rent to the inhabitants, leaving them little choice but to vacate. She can't believe it - that's not how her father operates ... but she has to believe it. When she goes to the area to see for herself, it's in front of her face.
