First, the good stuff: I'm normally not a fan of Westerns, but I was drawn in by the premise of wlw protagonists in a setting that's usually all about manly men doing manly things. And I think the concept was pulled off pretty well--both main characters are flawed but likeable, and I certainly found myself rooting for them to find a way to be together. This book doesn't have the most original of plots, but everything became a little more interesting through the lens of a female perspective on the events that transpire.
And now for the not-so-good stuff: this author really, really needs to take the "show, don't tell" motto to heart. There are fundamentally useless descriptions of things thrown in seemingly randomly (for instance, we don't need it repeated that Landen's horse is "cream-colored" every other time said horse is mentioned), and the action scenes in particular felt stilted and awkward. There are quite a few grammatical issues as well (although I must admit I did get a kick out of seeing "the Raleigh" written a few times instead of "the Ranger," but I hardly think that was the author's intent.) And that brings me to my absolute biggest issue with this book: the written-out Texas accent. I almost dnf'ed this book around the 10% mark because the way the characters' speech is written is like nails on a chalkboard to me. I'll give you a few examples: you = yew, the = thuh, help = hep, y'all = yawl, to = tuh...and this goes on for the whole book, for every character. It is maddening. We know the characters are in Texas (pardon me, "Teksus") so we can assume they are speaking in a typical Texan accent. Maybe this won't be an issue for some people, but it was so irksome and distracting for me.
This probably would have been a 3-star book if not for the goshdang written accents. Definitely worth a read if you're into Westerns, or if you're like me and want to read more wlw books in varying genres.
Westerns, cowboys/cowgirls, are books I've enjoyed reading off and on. As I began this book, I wasn't finding it enjoyable. However, after about halfway, the plot seemed to change, in my opinion, and the story became intriguing. The two female main characters brought to life the F/F genre from the late 1800's, which definitely was a different way from how most western books are written. The love story, mixed outlaws and lawman (law-woman), brought to life a new perspective on how the old west was for the F/F companionship. In addition, the females were involved in gunfights and this also intrigued me as a new perspective. Not my first choice of books, however I'm glad I finished, as I ended up enjoying how things turned out for the two main characters.
It may seem like nitpicking, and maybe it is. For me, I find it very irritating and interrupts the natural flow of the story. I extend to finish it, as I think it’s a good story, but it makes me feel like you couldn’t trust your readers to “see” or “hear”
what might be called accents or the language of the time.
I received an advanced copy from hidden gems and I enjoyed it so much that I want to review
