Say it with me, “L-I-H! L-I-H! L-I-H!” *teehee *
I’m going to start writing more reviews on these books and will have an entire link set aside for them, because let me tell you, there are TONS of them! And that’s wonderful news for HCR people like us because we will never run out of super-duper awesome books to read.
My latest LIH “read” comes from a new author--and friend of mine, I might add!--Stacy Henrie, entitled: LADY OUTLAW. Catchy, right? You know you want to read it already!
Side note here…I will be featuring Stacy and another awesome new author (who I will name later!) in October!!
Book Rating: Best of the Best
I want to say something really quickly about LIH books in general. All the ones I have read were thoroughly enjoyable. But, you might find, like I did, that some of them can be a teensy-weensy bit cheesy at times, with a helping of melodrama on the side. *teehee * Not every single LIH is like that, but I have read a few…just FYI. So if you want to avoid that kind of thing, you will want to make sure and read my reviews--I’ll let you know if there’s any of that in there. I'm not usually bothered by it, but I have been known to roll my eyes a time or two.
LADY OUTLAW however, was not cheesy in the least. I had a great time with this story. And, cross-my-heart-and-hope-to-die, it’s my favorite LIH to date.
Jennie Jones will do anything to save her ranch—even if she has to *gulp * rob stage bandits! She’s beautiful, kind and determined not to let anything stand in her way. But her dashing new ranch hand Caleb Johnson is making her question her plans for the future.
Both main characters are very real and very lovable. They are together a lot throughout the book too, which is a bonus. That just equals more romance of course!! (That’s typical of all LIH’s which is one of the reasons I like them so much.) Their growth and development through the story was wonderful. Also, I was kind of surprised by a few things in the end. Fun!
The Christian element of the story was excellent. I thought Stacy touched on issues that you don't see all too often in these stories, and I really appreciated that. It's sweet and inspiring.
You will want to pre-order this’n! Congratulations, Stacy on a wonderful story!
