It felt really good to read a Jude book. There’s something about the way she writes that just welcomes you back home into a world where men are hot tempered, but honorable. They stand by their women, they treat them well, and even though they get mad at them it’s because they care. And the women are always strong characters. There’s something different about each of them, but the one thing they have in common is that they stand up for themselves. I like that.
This book was split into three stories; the first was in the 1930s about an airline pilot who falls for a younger man after her husband dies. The second was about the twin brother of a character from another book of hers, who falls in love with a blond writer who has no filter. (She reminded me of me.) And the third was about a homely girl in need of help, she asks an “aging gunslinger” to help get her sister off her back.
Don’t look at me like that! They aren’t as cheesy as they sound! All the women were confidant and said what they meant and meant what they said. It was fantastic.
I suggest this if you are in need of short and sweet love stories and need some handsome and rugged men in your life.
