After the Wind

About the book: After seeing her young family killed by a propane tanker explosion, the rest of Kristen's life seems more like a life sentence. Trying to escape the memories, she finds herself in a remote Idaho resort town where no one knows her story.

Her co-workers think she's intriguing.

Her neighbors think she's crazy.

She thinks she's hopeless.

Then she meets Joe.

My review: I love to read Jaclyn M Hawkes' books. They are always clean, cute and full of great romance. This book is no different. I truly felt bad for Kristen, she watched her whole family die. And then she was left with the guilt and the post traumatic stress disorder from the whole thing. She decides to move to a small town in Idaho where she can ski during the winter and ride horses during the summer time. Small towns are great, because you can blend in a bit, but they're also not so great because everyone knows everyone else's business. Kristin did a good job keeping a cover on what had happened to her, but the flip side was that the whole town thought she was insane. At least that's the rumors that Joe Faciano heard about his new neighbor. He had no idea that she was the same woman that he had teaching his sons to ski. He hopes that he can get her to go on a date with him, but will he be able to break through the hard shell she keeps around herself?

I really enjoyed this book. I liked Kristin and Joe. I liked Joe's sons too, they were true gentlemen, all of them willing to go out of their way to help Kristin. The plot was cute and romantic. I liked that this was a clean romance that I wouldn't have a problem with our teenage daughter reading. I also liked that there was a touch of mystery and suspense later in the plot. This book really has everything! Check it out!

I was able to get this book for free from Amazon.com
