Interlude at Cottonwood Springs

About the book: Ruth Reynolds moves in wealthy New York circles. Heck Benham rides the range in the high plateau of New Mexico. When she comes west during the Great Depression, chance throws them together, and they fall in love. But she's a married lady, and he's an honorable man.

My review: Normally I've loved Liz Adair's books, but I had a really hard time with this one. I didn't like the main character Ruth. At. All. She's spoiled, selfish and pretty much married her husband, Harlan for his money. That's one thing, but the way she acted when she was married was a bit crazy. She completely didn't take any concern for her marriage vows and went after Heck. 

Now don't get me wrong, I didn't like Harlan either. He was also spoiled, selfish and very unkind to Ruth. 

I did like Heck for most of what I read. He seemed to be an honorable man. But not at Cottonwood Springs. I did like the way he explained why people didn't want to be around them to Ruth, living together unwed was very frowned upon at that time. 

I didn't love the plot either, it just seemed really slow with not a whole lot of anything going on. I will admit that I didn't finish this book, and I really have no desire to.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
