** spoiler alert ** What a hard life it was for these early settlers. I can't imagine being that strong, and keeping my mouth shut and just obeying or not questioning. What a shit the guy turns out to be. Yeah, we have come a long way baby!
I thought that I would love anything by Catherine Anderson--this is the sixth title of hers that I've read so far, and I loved the five that came before. I just couldn't get into this one, though. Zeke Coulter is 34 and enjoys being a bachelor. Then he meets Natalie, his next door neighbor. She's a divorcee with a troubled 12 year old boy who just vandalized Zeke's property. So Zeke has the kid work for him to pay for the damages and falls for Natalie in the process. The book was well-written and all, I just wasn't into it. They had chemistry, but the romance was too smooth and predictable. Usually, Anderson's heroines have a lot of issues that need to be worked through and overcome. Natalie, for all that she got cheated on by her former husband and had trust issues, was pretty normal and well-adjusted. On a side note, why do so many of Anderson's heroines have to go into detail about having cellulite? I can only conclude at this point that the author must have some body-image issues of her own that keep on leaking onto her characters. I don't mind a heroine who worries about being chubby, but knowing she has tapioca-like cellulite on the insides of her thighs is too much.
