Through the Mist

About the book: Can Landon and Megan use prayer and faith to find their happily ever after? 

Landon Edmunds has been a cowboy since birth, even winning in the rodeo for several years before an injury ended his career. He returned to his hometown of Gold Valley, where he works at Horseshoe Home Ranch as a cowhand, but now he's looking for something of his own. He's thinking of buying a horse ranch and training horses for the rodeo, but when an old high school friend returns to Gold Valley, he turns to construction instead. 

The preacher's daughter, Megan Palmer needs a helping (cow)hand to get her father's church in good repair so he can retire. Megan and Landon work well together, and as sparks fly, she’s sure God brought her back to Gold Valley so she could find her happily ever after--if only Landon wasn't looking to leave town. 

Through serious discussion and prayer, can Landon and Megan find their future together?

My review: I liked this cute love story. I don't know that I'd say it was my favorite, it was good, but it lacked a little something for me. I can't quite put my finger on what was lacking though.

I liked that you saw the story through Megan and Landon's eyes. I like it when you can see the plot from multiple perspectives because it makes the story just seem whole. 

I liked both Megan and Landon enough to care what happened to both of them. But maybe part of why I didn't love the book is that neither of their characters jumped off the page at me. They both seemed a little too vanilla or beige, neither of them opening up enough for the reader to get to know them.

That was kind of the same thing with the setting for me. It didn't jump off the page, I didn't feel like I could step out my door and find it. And there weren't any other characters in the book that made me want to get to know them either.

Though the love story part was cute, this book was just okay for me. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to read more if this had been the only book I'd read by this author.

I was sent an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.
