The Colt Reviews
I enjoyed this book! It was very fast-paced, the author left very little time to get bored. It was a very quick read for me.The only reason I gave it four stars and not five is, there are some punctuation errors within the book.I enjoyed the story and I enjoyed the complexity of the characters.
Dawn Nelson definitely kept the reader's interest with all of the twists and turns in this novel...I was unable to put it down until it was finished... I truly appreciate the complimentary copy from Goodreads First Reads... I am looking forward to reading more of her books...
I just won this book today!!!! i can't wait for it to arrive in the mail so i can start it!
Couldn't believe it when I won this book. Why would I have chosen it? Well, I am so glad I did. It was a very fun and charming book. I am looking forward to the next one out .Thank you Dawn!
This book is being reviewed as a part of the FirstReads Giveaway program; I was not compensated for this review with the exception of the book.Normally, I am not a great fan of Westerns. This holds true for "The Colt". It is part of The Rancher Series, which I did not realize when I requested the book; however there was little confusion and could have been a stand-alone book.With overtones of "The Horse Whisperer", we meet Tucker, who has been injured from trying to gentle a colt. He may never ride again. A new cook arrives at the ranch, soft-spoken Marnie. Without giving away any of the plot, there are really not many surprises or intrigue to be found within its pages.When I approach a book, I truly want to like it. The characters within, though a bit 2 dimensional, are for the most good people. The story was not bad either--remove the sexual references and it would make a fine book for just about any age.However, the editing was non-existent. Punctuation, especially commas, were sorely needed throughout. Contractions would have made the speech far more believeable (especially that of a cowboy's language). Scenes would jump quickly from one to the next with no break. With a top notch editor, and perhaps fleshing out some scenes, this book would easily go up a star or two.It's easy enough to be a reviewer than a writer. I hope the author takes my suggestions in the way they were intended, and her future works are successful.
I think this is the same book I have, even though the cover is different. This is a good book with a very complex hero and heroine. I enjoyed the build up to and was not let down at all in this book. I met the author in Vegas at the Roper Cowboy Marketplace and bought one book from her, after reading that book I ended up coming back and buying them all. Out of all of her books, this book is the one I felt was a little mild for her.
