Review

Libby Ross was tricked into coming to Montana, and she plans to leave as soon as she can earn enough money to purchase a train ticket to anywhere else. But the small town of Heavenly offers little in the way of respectable employment, and Libby refuses to take a job at Heavenly's local saloon, The Big Dipper. Unsure what to do next, Libby's uncertain, immediate future is decided when she is offered a job cooking for the Lodestar Ranch. The Lodestar Ranch is completely devoid of feminine presence, and that's the way owner Tyler Hollins prefers it. When he comes home from a business trip and finds Libby in the kitchen, he immediately fires her and orders her from the property. However, when he talks to a few of his men, he realizes that Libby is the only person available to cook for the group, and that the men will not continue to work for him if they aren't given some decent food. With no choice in the matter, he agrees to let Libby stay, but only until he can replace her with a man. Both Libby and Tyler have troubled pasts. While Libby's past is shadowed with humiliation and heartache, Tyler is driven by ghosts and guilt. As Libby tries to keep from repeating her past mistakes, Tyler continues to deny himself any form of meaningful human companionship. Little by little, Libby learns to trust Tyler, while Tyler slowly releases the guilt that has crippled him emotionally. As each gives to the other, they eventually gain the love that is their's for the taking. Ms. Harrington's characters are believabl e and her dialogue is worth reading twice. Libby and Tyler are perfect for each other!Alexis Harrington has a winner with A Taste of Heaven! A perfect reason to spend the day reading! Alexis Harrington kept me up late! How sad that Ms. Harrington's books have to end. Alexis Harrington has the road map to romance.Gerrie Shepard -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved -- From Literary Times

I came across this book while looking for another book, and liked the title. However, I almost didn't purchase the book, because a number of the reviews mentioned that there were "so many typos." I found that this was NOT the case.

I enjoyed Libby Ross' character. She was strong for a woman that had been through several hard hitting life betrayals, yet it seems that she could still hold her head up and smile. She had a delicateness about her but was definitely not afraid of work. The only time I was even frustrated with her character was when she kept comparing Tyler Hollins to her previous employer's son, who had done her wrong (I don't want to give this part away).

This book did have all the things I think can make a good book: 1)Betrayal; which doesn't take over the book 2)Lost love; although I think Tyler Hollins may have dwelled on this a little too long 3)Sadness; when a character (even if they are not the main character)dies 4)Found Love; not too quick, or doesn't take too long to get there

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it is definitely a keeper.

Before deciding whether or not to buy this book, be sure to read all the reviews. You'll find that the low scores are mainly for typos, not the story. The story is very good, and, frankly, there aren't that many typos compared to other Kindle editions. I'm glad I ignored the rating - this is keeper!

I just loved this story, it is heart warming, emotional and humorous all packed into one. Harrington's style reminds me a lot like L. Spencer one of my favorite authors. I was in a terrible slump and this book pulled me through, it had me laughing and crying, you will love it!

I can safely say this novel accomplishes the best feature of romances: a fantastic emotional journey. I felt every tear, kiss, and event. The connection between Libby and Tyler almost leaps off the page; the reader is sucked into every scene between these two and feels every confrontation, heartache, and gorgeous romantic scene. I also enjoyed how the author concentrated on actually building a relationship first, before the sexy times occur in force. Yeah, there's enough UST to make my Kindle melt, but the author concentrates on building a connection emotionally before she gets her characters horizontal.

I really enjoyed the characters for the most part. Yeah, there were clichés (misunderstands abound, tragic pasts, ect...) In fact, there was more than once I wanted to tell Libby to just keep her suitcase packed, with how often she assumed she was being sacked. However, in all that, I just adored Libby. She was soft and feminine when she needed to be. Yet, she wasn't afraid to tell Tyler where to stick it when she felt he had gone too far, and she's strong emotionally. I don't know if I could have come back from her situation with Ross' death and being alone in a snowbound cabin for months on end.

I think I have to mention the setting, too. I'm a Montana girl, having lived here for 2/3 of my own life. I've personally been to the area mentioned in the novel, on the banks of the Mussellshell and surrounded by all that rugged beauty. I think the author did a fantastic job in bringing her setting to life, in all its remoteness in this time period and in all its beautiful glory.

I really enjoyed this romance. The emotions fairly scorched my Kindle, and the setting was beautiful. Despite some clichés (I don't think any romance, really, can escape them), the characters were fairly strong, and I felt a real connection to them. This is a great example of how a historical romance novel should be written.

I can't believe I haven't written a review of this book. I've had this story on my Kindle for four years and have read it at least once a year. It is so well written and has such great heart that I seem to need to just read it one more time. This poor girl was raised in an orphanage, put out to work when she was very young and found her co-workers to be her family. This is the old west so the work she could find was cooking and cleaning for the rich. Her reputation was compromised by the "no good son" so she lost her job and is on the street. She finds an ad for a Mail Order Bride and answers the call. It turns out to be a 75 yr. old sick man with a broken down ranch. She is really his caregiver and he dies during the winter. Her life from then on is the adventure of this book. I just love it and you will too.

A wonderful love story, a suffering male main character as well as a female leading character who has suffered more than a fair share up to now in her life. Likeable supportive characters, a good atmosphere and an easy-going plot.

For ladies who love Western Romance this is surely a good read.

This book is by far one of the best books I have ever read. The characters are great and so is the story. You can't help but smile through out the book. I read this book in about 1.5 days not because it was short, but because it was so good! It is a great price also..you should take the chance and buy it. I would bet you like it as much as I do!

Its 1887, After being dismissed from her position as a cook Libby Ross accepted a mail order bride offer from a rancher in Montana hoping it would be the start of a new life with a man she could learn to love and perhaps a family. She was doomed to be disappointed again. The man was old and the ranch was not anything that could be worked. He wanted someone to care for him, so Libby stayed until he passed. She was determined to work somewhere long enough to ear passage back to Chicago.

When she went into town the only work available was in the saloon and it was not for her. She was relieved when she was hired by ranch hands from the Lodestar ranch hired her for their boss and prayed that he would keep her so that they would keep a cook. Tyler Hollins didn't want a female cook, he would never allow her to stay.

Necessity changed all of Tyler's wants and Libby stayed between them they managed to develop a cautious friendship and of course all the men were happy with the food. There are tests and temper and decisions to be made but there is a certain something between Tyler and Libby and they have to learn what's important in their life.
