In stead there is a celebration of family and values. Not to mention the suspense that sneaks in!
Well written with great characters
I want to read much more from Linda Barrett!!!
Katherine Kirby lost her entire family one night. Ten years later, after some turmoil, she moved to a new city and a new job, intending to start over, but instead of teaching undergrads at a university, she's teaching GED prep at a local academy. She hadn't felt love for such a long time, that she's slow in recognizing any, esp. from the Nick, the tall dark Texan. Nick Martinelli never graduated high school. He had worked in the family construction business all his life. With his father's recent heart attack, and the need to create a bid for the local school district, he's getting overworked. This GED thing was to fulfill a promise and must remain a secret from the rest of his family. He's not ready to romance Kathrine... or become friend with the kid Jeremy, who's both lost and hurt, and copes with being destructive and disruptive. With possibly the future of his company on the line, he had to put in more time, but his love for Katherine can't be denied. And Katherine longed for a family. But someone eager for a payday has his eyes on stealing the bid related information, and he doesn't care whom he had to hurt to get it...
The romance was actually quite good, as it's got this reluctance to engage, they dance around each other a lot, and each went through "I can't possibly do my job and love him/her" phase, only to figure it all out later. The threat tension was also pretty good, with just enough evilness showing through, but not too much, that it made sense without being psychopathic or flat. All in all, a good read.
Emotional and hard to put down.
Plug and play storyline. Interesting theme of GED's and how that accomplishment will help people achieve their goals.
Believable dialogue and characters with distinct personalities.
Did Nick and Katrin practice safe sex?
This sentence is awkward, fingers on the trigger? Also, firing into the ceiling?
'She grabbed the weapon, placed her fingers on the trigger, pointed at the ceiling and fired... with two hands.'
No desire to re-read this story. I may be interested in other works by this author. Remember this is my personal opinion and does not reflect on the author.
I love that this story was a virtually clean one. There were a few nasty words thrown in here and there, but it fit the situation at hand, and wasn't overly done. As far as sex, there was none of those. Oh you could feel the undeniable chemistry sparking from Nick and Kathleen from the start, but as far as sex goes.... It was all left up to the readers imaginations. I loved the mystery and suspense that was thrown in, too. It actually threw me for a loop, because I didn't see it coming.
The last 1/4 of the story had me laughing one minute, and then bawling my eyes out the next. But they were very, very happy tears, so no worries there.
