McKettricks of Texas: Austin
Linda Lael Miller
Amazon Vine just posted my review of this book. It begins...
Linda Lael Miller's been writing for a very long time, and while for me she's had more misses than hits, since she started writing Frontier Romances - both historical and contemporary - she's experienced a goodly amount of commercial success. When Amazon Vine offered McKettricks of Texas: Austin, the third in a contemporary series for HQN and part of a larger McKettrick series begun in 2002 when she was published by Pocket, I requested a copy for review. My reaction is mixed. I liked the second-chance-at-love romance between Austin McKettrick and Paige Remington, but found the set up for the series-within-a-series - three brothers falling in love with and marrying three sisters - entirely too precious. Add to the "too precious" quotient that they all live in the same large ranch house, and the enjoyable romance cancels out.
