Editorial Reviews

Review

" . . . a satisfying sigh-worthy love story at the center of a well-paced plot gets this planned trilogy off to a superb start."  --Xpress, Library Journal

"Kate Moore has won me over and I really look forward to reading more books in this series and anything she writes." --Confession of YA and NA Addict

From the Author

In one of my favorite scenes in literature Jane Austen's Mr. Collins tells Lizzie Bennet, "it is by no means certain that another offer of marriage may ever be made to you." That line has stayed with me and resonated through all the conversations I've had with female friends who have wondered whether in turning down an apparent Mr. Wrong, they used up their only chance to marry. That's the predicament I gave Annie James, the heroine of The Loner. Widowed young, barely out of mourning, she turns down a young man's spontaneous, unpolished proposal, and enters a romantic drought as bone dry as the Mojave. Annie believes she was right to turn Will Sloan down until she meets him again and gets a second chance at love.

Finished this in less than 24 hours, which is to say that I had a hard time putting it down. Well drawn characters and a sure knowledge of the world of independent schools. I enjoyed spending time with The Loner

The first book in the new “The Canyon Club” series introduces us to Will Sloan, a tall, dark and handsome tech guru who has recently sold his company for bucu bucks. For what seems like his entire adult life, Will has been infatuated with Annie James who was a young secretary at his hated high school, Canyon Prep. Will fell hard for Annie at the young age of 18 and never quite got over the heartbreak of her dismissal.

Fast forward 10 years to the class reunion of the Canyon Prep class of 2005. The school is in the red and in desperate need of a bailout. One of Will’s classmates, Josh Huntington, is in charge of fundraising and knows Will has a major bankroll and a major soft spot for Annie. As many things have changed, one has remained the same…Will still loves Annie. But does Annie feel the same? Did she ever have feelings for him? When forces throw the couple together again they must navigate the troubled waters of the past and decide if there is a future.

This is a new author for me but she is certainly not new to the romance writing scene. Moore does a nice job of introducing the main characters quickly and gave enough information about their past to intrigue me within the first chapter.

While the concept of the book is relatively rote – rich man, hurt woman – the history shared with Will and Annie makes this a unique read. In addition to that the cast of supporting characters, mainly Josh Huntington, have their own original story lines intertwined with Will and Annie’s.

At the heart of this novel is a story of redemption and hope, which is perfect for this time of year. That said, this is not a holiday read but it does lend itself to those same warm and fuzzy holiday feelings.

Kate Moore never disappoints and she knows the prep school scene. Don't miss out on this can't-put-it-down book with its unforgettable characters. Sure, he's a loner, but he's also in love. Strongly recommended!

What I like about this book is that it is different from a lot of the books that are out there right now. It is a second chance love story about two people who were in two different places when they first met. The timing hadn’t been right for them back then, but ten years later they have a second chance at happiness. If they can both let it happen.

I must admit that it took me a little bit to get into this book. It started out a little bit slow for me, and I had a hard time understanding the real motivations behind the character’s actions in the past; however, as the story developed it became clear what they were. I really enjoyed seeing the love story unfold in it’s own way, as subtle as it might be, amidst the backdrop of scandal and revenge. Will and Annie are reunited in an interesting way, and one in which you’re just not sure if you are going to like them as a couple. At least in my opinion. Like I said, though, as the story wore on you definitely begin to feel for the characters and what truly resides in their hearts. Having finished the book it does remind me in ways of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, as there are some similar themes.

I thought it was very interesting that the story was actually told from three separate points of view. That isn’t something that you see everyday, and that takes skill as a writer to be able to maintain each characters voice and story line. I wondered when reading this story, if the reasoning for that would lead up to the next book in the series, and it does. I definitely saw an evolution of the characters as the story progressed. As a reader you want a story that is interesting. Something that can keep you hooked. For me, I also need characters that develop and grow.
