Week 3: January 15 – 21, 2012 Light the Stars
This is only my second review of a story by Rayanne Thayne. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I actually enjoyed it.
Wade Dalton has a lot of stuff going on in his life. He has a ranch to run, a tv crew on the way, three kids to raise that he knows very little about and a mom that has just eloped with a gentleman friend of hers that no one seem to know very much about. Oh and let’s not forget, the daughter of said gentleman friend who has just arrived on his doorstep trying to find the whereabouts her dad.
Enter Caroline Montgomery, a “life” coach who has inadvertently coached Wade’s mom into getting more out of life, not realizing how it was going to affect her own life!
Wade is in way over his head. He has no idea to take care of his own children because he has given up all control of that function to his mom. He is in so much trouble here until Caroline shows up on his doorstep. Wade is so angry right now he doesn’t know what to do, except take Caroline up on her offer and let her help out a few days until dear ol’ dad returns. What follows is some very interesting moments between Wade and Ann and how they both deal with the children.
I found the story believable but the behavior of the children predictable. What I didn’t expect is what happened to Caroline. Although I knew there would have to be something that would make her stay, I was not prepared to see the actual events unfold before my eyes. This was a nice surprise for me and captivated my attention enough to continue reading. Rating:
