Not quite there

I could not wait to read this book. I knew Sage's story would be filled with her wanting her way and fighting with Drum, but I think it went a little over board in that area. She fought with him over everything. And I was tired of her constantly seeing him as a kid the first half of the book. I did enjoy the book and if you have read the others you will want to read this as well. It's a great addition to the series. When Sage finally see's Drum for who he really is, the book starts geting better and better. All in all it was kind of a slow start but is very interesting and ends good. Bonnie and Brad were a nice addition to the book. Texas princess was my favorite, and I was disappointed Tobin was the only brother not in this book. But it was nice to visit Whispering Mountain again, and even hear from Martha:)


I've always loved Jodi Thomas novels, and have been impatiently awaiting for this one. I loved the fire between Drum and Sage and couldn't wait to hear their story. Plus I loved all the McMurry men so I'd hoped to get a taste of them involved in Sage's life as well. I'll still give the book five stars because I love Jodi's writing, and it was a good story, though I had expected something a bit different. I would have liked to have seen them together more with all the tension they shared in the pervious novels. I did though enjoy the interaction between Bonnie and Brad. I just felt there was a little too much disconnection and space between the two main characters. All in all, it was still a great story and well written.

Good but something was missing.....

I waited a long time for this book to come out and was so excited to read it. I LOVED Drummond and Sage in the earlier books so much!! The chemistry between them was off the charts and they were magic. I couldn't wait to see their love story unfold. Was it a good read? Yes, but I felt something was missing. I'm not sure what, I really can't put my finger on it but it didn't quite live up to what I'd hoped for. It wasn't as magical as I expected. When I first started reading I got the immediate feeling it was going to be full of secondary characters that were going to take away too much time that should be devoted to the two main characters, as sometimes happens in Jodi's books, and then when they became separated for 80 pages I definitely got the feeling this wasn't going to be what I'd hoped. Again, IMO, this was way too long to separate the main characters. I expect them to be separated and to have conflict, you wouldn't have a good story if you didn't, however sometimes I think it's extended way too long with no real purpose other than to fill pages. What happened in those 80 pages could definitely have been condensed with the same effect. The third thing that made me skeptical I wasn't going to get what I was hoping for, two secondary characters seemed to be getting more steamier love scenes than Drum and Sage. Still...I kept reading but was getting pretty discouraged. Things did an about face. Even though the beginning had a slow start most of the second part of the book had Drum and Sage together more often than not and when they were apart it was only for brief periods. YEA! And yes the love scenes did get better! The one thing I was disappointed in however was the end. Jodi tends to have her hero's disappear somewhere toward the end then they show up in the last one or two pages for the big ending except there's not enough time for a big ending or a really satisfying one. Sage and Drum had a few sentences after reuniting and that was it. What a big let down especially when I know Jodi can do an awesome ending with more than a few paragraphs. I felt cheated with the ending. It really needed to be much longer than it was. Please correct that! Had the ending been there I would have probably given it a 5 but the build up just wasn't there as it should have been at the end. Still, all in all....I wouldn't have missed these two characters for anything. They were wonderful!

Worth waiting for...

I loved this book - loved the characters, think this and Texas Princess are the best of the series.

Jodi Thomas never disappoints!

What a great ending for the Whispering Mountain series....maybe she can find a way to bring along some of the younger characters to write more! This author never disappoints! If you haven't read all of her Texan novels....get 'em quick, they all are great reads!! Please keep them coming, Jodi, and thanks!
