S ridiculous but I ve been staring at this review for two days I keep hoping inspiration will strike and I ll come up with some fabulously witty introduction something that xplains my interest in Lizzy Chandler s Snowy River Man but I ve got nothing I picked it up because I wanted a bit of light reading My brain was fried and having just come off Mitchell Zuckoff s Lost in Shangri la I needed something that wouldn t reuire too much concentration on my part To be fair Chandler s is very indicative of the genre The writing and basic story line are straightforward and Kiss of Surrender (Deadly Angels, easy to follow The content is light predictable and plays beautifully into the romantic optimism that characterizes contemporary romance In certain circles I see Snowy River Man doing uite well I m just not part of that demographic To be perfectly honest the implausibility of the premise andxaggerated situational drama didn t appeal to me Many The Weirdstone of Brisingamen elements of the story felt too coincidental Nick annoyed me to nond and his relationship with Katrina felt awkward and forced The plot hole surrounding a private investigator didn t sit well with me and I didn t like how often Chandler felt it necessary to reiterate well stablished conceptsWhen push comes to shove Snow River Man wasn t suited to my tastes and I feel cheated of the time I spent with it I can appreciate the success it might njoy with less particular readers but it s not a title I see myself recommending forward It was the titlele sigh Ever since a certain movie released and had such sweeping scenery music and storyline I have been Rain (Paper Gods, enchanted by this region of Australia and the rugged life there I didn tven give the blurb than a glance which as many know this is so unlike me Thus I wasn t sure what to Winters Passage (The Iron Fey, expect but stillnded up with an interesting light romantic suspense and a brooding second chance romance that kept me reading through one sittingThe story opens with Jack and his son at the rodeo Jack takes his ride and discovers Nick missing It turns into a desperate all out search for a child Jack is frantic He loves his son and fears Into this atmosphere walks a woman from his past The sight of her makes him angry and her claim to have a psychic ability that allows her to find Nick is the only thing that keeps him from driving her away What does she want from him If its what he thinks it isbut no not that But through his anger and fear the attraction is still thereKatrina has visions that lead her to lost children and she has worked with the police before but this time it is the hardest decision she has The Replacement Wife ever made to involve herself Jack broke her heart and now she has a vision of his son He is hostile and she can t figure out what he has to be angry at her over Then after a fewncounters he suddenly changes his mind He wants her to stay and help with Nick he wants to know what she remembers of the past and wants to know about her gift She senses something momentous coming and Damned (Witch Hunt even if instinct tells her to run her heart wants to find out if there is still a chance This story is a contemporary romance with suspense and paranormallements The setting of the horse ranch is well drawn and definitely a plus It is told in alternating view points between Jack and Katrina The reader is privy to so much than the characters as a result because the story is a journey of two people who have to unwind the deceptions and misconceptions of the past if they are to have any peace with their future They are both The Bluebird Bet (Welcome to Tall Pines eual victims to someonelse s machinations but that doesn t change the impact of the conseuences falling on them I think that is what really drew me inThe suspenseful story plot is full of red herrings and a few possibilities for what is going on Was Nick in danger from someone Who let the stallion go and is undercutting Jack s bid for the proposal Is the old man living on the property innocent What of Jack s wife s family So many things swirling to keep the reader guessingThen the romance It was hard and would get worse before it could get better because of all the things from the past Jack has the dilemma of what to do with the knowledge when he learns the horrible truth He has to protect his son but what of Katrina He hurt her once and the truth though none of that was his fault will likely devastate her He doesn t want to lost this tentative second chance but he knows he will and it already hurtsAll in all it was a good story I was Hot-Blooded Italians engaged in it from the beginning and didn t want to stop reading Thending is rushed though it is complete It doesn t promise than it should based on where things are left I would recommend it for those who like their romance on the sweeter Mlynowski Teen Thriller end who like mild suspense and don t mind the psychiclementMy thanks
