Çok iyi bir antoloji - benim iki favorim Simone Anderson tarafından "Halat Adamı" ve Jan Irving tarafından "Düz Kovboy" idi, ama dediğim gibi, tüm hikayeler oldukça iyiydi: D
When the first sentence of the book talks about “killing my mother” I thought for sure the book would be interesting. But it really wasn’t. There were a few parts that were interesting but often times as they were being explained suddenly there would be a flashback and then the momentum would be lost. Only the very end of the book was relatively decent. Helen was the main character who killed her mother. She was an indecisive lost soul apparently because she was brought up by a mentally ill mother. Therefore the reader never quite knows what she will do.
Originally from BookMunchies @ Wordpress.com. If I could it would get a 3.5. Frequently with her novels, Roberts presents an interesting plot to explore. The idea of a search dog/ dog trainer being stalked by a convict, who’s back to finish the botched job, has potential. Added to that, we have the love interest, a new arrival in the small community, is a necessary but interesting aspect. He adds to the story because of how delightfully casual their relationship is and how it grows into something more without them really noticing. There’s a sense of ease, yet discomfort that feels natural (despite the catalyst of a stalker/killer). Clearly a Roberts’ novel, it follows her basic formula, which tends to be a drawback for many. But as a faithful reader, there is a comfort to be found there. Combined with her interesting plot ideas and ability to make these characters real for me, I feel it balances out into an enjoyable and easy read over all.
