Hunter Bowie heads into Texas Hill Country to begin a work/study program with a Charlie McCloud. After being bested by a runaway mare and a staple gun, Hunter settles into life on the ranch. Not having a real plan for the summer, Hunter enjoys being part of the ranch ‘family’.
As Hunter and Charlie (aka Charlize) bond over their love of music, they find themselves on converging and diverging paths. Will Charlie move past the loss of her first love, late husband Cash, and allow her heart to come alive again?
Think of a young horse, being broken-in, learning to trust a new rider. It falls on the trainer to teach the horse the skills needed to help on the ranch, and to trust those people around him.
As the twists and turns play out along the dirt paths, you’ll feel Charlie’s heartache and wonder if she’ll rein in her heart or gallop toward her future.
Charlie's journey is one rough ride. You'll find yourself wanting the best for her, but unsure who will be the right stablemate. ;)
Going on within the overall main story. I thought it was sad at times, a little mysterious, and overall entertaining. When I got to the end, I just was not ready to be done reading.
Authors should make sure their sentences say what they intend them to say. Example: "Charlie around?" Hunter inquires of the owner who hired him for his summer work study program." Hunter is talking to a ranch hand. He is inquiring ABOUT the owner who is nowhere near Hunter at the time of the conversation. Therefore he did not inquire OF the owner.
Additionally, horse terminology and horse scenes shouldn't make a horse owner wince.
I know that someone is going to carp at me about reviewing a book I didn't read all the way through. However, had someone posted a review telling me about the poor writing/grammar and odd tense choice I wouldn't have purchased the book. So it really is a valid review.
I will say that the story line sounded interesting and I think that if the author had chosen to use 3rd person past tense, with hopefully a little editing by some sort of professional, this book might have been a okay read.
She's independent and strong, which I love, and a great mother.
I was hooked as soon as I started and I'd recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
The author creates the mood in many of the scenes through her deft description of the settings: Texas ranchland, downtown Austin, and New York City. Her use of regional details, especially Texas college rivalries, firmly roots the story in the places where it is set.
While I enjoyed the plot of the story, my reason for my low rating is the author’s writing style. This is an enjoyable draft of a book but not the finished product. There are too many grammar and word usage/meaning errors. For example, the author often uses the speech tag, ‘he/she incited’. I believe ‘challenged’ is the word she is looking for. This is just one example of many. The errors need to be corrected and the writing style tightened up.
I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. In summary, I would say that Just Not Ready Yet is a tender, sweet romance with a delightful cast of characters but the errors and writing style distract readers and detract from the story. Just Not Ready Yet really does sum up the novel.
