The author did a good job establishing a sense of place in describing the small town in Alaska and it's interesting inhabitants. These supporting characters lent an authenticity to the story and were welcome additions to the story. Rene was very brave to concoct a plan to leave her violently abusive and controlling husband and to try to get her young children to a safe place far away from him. Her sister, Maddy and her brother-in-law were very supportive in helping her with plans, new ID, lining up a job and transportation, etc...Maddy even posed as Rene on a plane with her children to be a decoy. As a volunteer at a battered women's shelter, Maddy had these resources available to help her sister. But when her enraged brother-in-law came after her looking for his missing wife, Maddy got a taste of what it was like to be abused. She had to hire a bodyguard, was forced to stay at home after being run off the road, and essentially became his victim as well.
Meanwhile, Rene and her son and daughter were learning how to laugh, make friends,.relax and sleep peacefully. They were gaining confidence and learning how to love. Rene felt useful as a teacher and part of a community. She also felt empowered by learning to shoot a gun for self defense. They didn't know what lengths her husband would go to find her and what payback he planned when he did.
This book contains a sexual scene, some profanity and violence.
Heat factor moderate.
You can't help but to fall in love with the contrast of characters in this quaint, remote town in Alaska she now calls home. The storyline and suspense throughout was great. I enjoyed seeing Rene developed a new sense of freedom and independence.
Overall this was a great read. There were a couple of relationships included in the story that forced romance where it did not belong. This took away from the story and threw a few chapters into disarray. Not to discourage, I still enjoyed the book.
If your looking for steamy romance, this is not for you. Romance is consistent with a PG movie with more feeling and embracing the moment.
I have to agree with other reviewers who questioned how fast that Rene fell in love with Brett with very little interaction between them, How she was this perfect person at everything she did even if she had never ever done it before and why didn't Brett check her teaching credentials prior to actually hiring her?
The town of Sad Horse seems to be a conglomeration of outcasts with self esteem issues and because of the issues they have they are more than happy to welcome anyone who appears in town. I have decided that I want to move to Sad Horse so I can find my place in this world. Also I would love the long winters being stuck in the house as long as I have my kindle.
