5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, moving, and evocative! June 2, 1998
Format:Paperback
Patricia McLinn tells a great story, and WIDOW WOMAN, set in the 1880s Wyoming Territory, is a prime example of her considerable talents. The passion between Rachel, the widow woman determined to save her ranch, and Nick, the loner cowhand with dreams of his own, is incredibly powerful. McLinn's mastery of the perfect phrase and her ability to evoke the senses and emotions brings the country and its people alive and makes the reader fall in love with them. A wonderful book and a DARN GOOD read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Romance November 5, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderful story about two very different people who are drawn together: Nick, a tough Texas cowboy; and Rachel, who's is determined to to keep her ranch against all odds. Although there are good and logical reasons why Nick and Rachel should avoid each other, the chemistry between them is just too strong. Their relationship, along with a tender secondary romance and the harsh beauty of the land surrounding them, make this an unforgetable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Love Stories in One Book June 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story of our Widow Woman Rachel and her true love Nick Dusqat is swift moving and power packed. Strong as the ranch she runs, Rachel has been widowed once when she meets Nick. Her husband was a cruel man, and Nick understands cruelty. His father and brother-in-law were both cruel men. That cruelty has scarred him emotionally.

Rachel ends up a widow twice before she finally gets to keep Nick for herself. In between she tries to keep her ranch going by marrying yet another man she does not love. She and her son and her ranch survive through the worst winter in history, at the cost of the horses she has bred for years and loves so dearly.

The other love story is that of Nicks sister Alba and her beau Davis. Alba shows up late in the book. Davis has been learning and growing under Nick's tutelage since the beginning. Their story is much sweeter than Rachel and Nick's, but just as moving.

The characters are so real you come to know them personally. It's a book you won't want to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a winner September 14, 2012
By mesha
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved it! This book was a breath of fresh air after a long dry spell of choosing books with pitiful writing, little or no evidence of editing, and boring plot lines. You will enjoy this book if you like descriptive writing, interesting plots, romance, and proper editing. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Story from Patricia McLinn August 21, 2012
By Selena
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great story, wonderful characters and plenty of action! Sometimes I felt as though I were watching a movie and other times I felt like I'd landed right in the middle of ranch! If you enjoy Western Historical Romance...or just Cowboys...you'll truly enjoy this read.

More About the Author

I'm most proud that my readers say my books blend "laughter and tears" with characters who "live and breathe." Those elements, along with a dash of humor, unite my 30+ romance, women's fiction, and mystery titles. I'm especially grateful to my readers for multiple visits to the USA Today list in 2013.

I had a great childhood, though I ran away from home - heading for Hollywood. Alas, Dairy Queen came before the train station, depleting my capital and preventing my becoming the only Oscar-winning screenwriter under 10. Instead, I received BA & MSJ degrees at Northwestern, then became a sportswriter. That training in dialogue, character, motivation, conflict shows in Winter Olympic-set romance THE GAMES, "a gold-medal winner."

Journalism took me from Rockford, Ill., to Charlotte, N.C., then 20+ years editing at the Washington Post. Journalism shows up in my mystery series, "Caught Dead in Wyoming," starting with SIGN OFF and LEFT HANGING. Elizabeth Margaret Danniher's high-flying TV news reporter career crash-lands in tiny KWMT in Sherman, Wyoming. As she tries to find her way in a new life, she is drawn into mysteries...and into the lives of 2 very different men.

I'm now in Northern Kentucky, writing full-time. You'll find me at www.PatriciaMcLinn.com, and hanging around social media, especially Twitter and Facebook - feel free to tell me to get back to writing.
