Read And A Great Series Turns Out Carson S Everyand a great series Turns ut Carson s every to Amelia was a lie He s not a rich rancher Two Forks is a tiny dump rather than the lovely prosperous town he described and he never intended to marry her to paraphrase his reasoning Well she wouldn t let me touch her Buffalo Woman Comes Singing otherwise what was I supposed to do Oh and his brother Boone is not a bit slow In fact he s a doctor and runs the town s general store and he s thene left to care for this strange lady Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant once Carson runsff as fast as he canI uite liked the setup here Yes it s completely preposterous but I suspended disbelief Yes Amelia s actions are incredibly stupid but the narrative acknowledges this completely and never tries to tell us The Last Great Revolution otherwise Further it s all pretty consistent with her character And yes this is the third book in a series and that s kindf Shining City obvious but I felt Goodger caught us up uite well at least at the start And Boone was a lovely character Boone and Carson grew up with a violent drunkf a father who idolised Carson and detested Boone it s never really explained why So while he took every excuse to beat up Boone the man celebrated every Blind Spots onef Carson s actions Carson s grown up to be a spoiled arsehole and a womaniser while Boone who had the fortune to escape as a young teen and be raised by a local is cautious and somewhat awkward and has never had anything to do with any woman He is fascinated by Amelia and thinks she s beautiful and can t understand why Carson would run away from herSo the first sections while Boone and Amelia get to know each A Boy and A Bear in a Boat other and Amelia makes friends in Two Forks were uite nice I liked her she might be silly but she s kind and found him sweet But then Amelia s brother and his new bride show up and the book started going downhill Basically the entire restf the book is based SOS on Boone and Amelia refusing to communicate Boone is particularly bad at this There really is not muchf a conflict It seemed like the location could be St. Johns Wort one Amelia really does not like Two Forks and misses home but Boone feels he can t leave due to some responsibilities he has there But that soon gets resolved in a uite startling way that I felt cheapened the issues involved and all we re left with is two people who just won t talk to eachther honestly And it wasn t even that their motivations for not speaking made senseWe also have uite a bit The Roman Family of space devoted to Amelia s brother and his new wife hero and heroine from a previous book who did not intrigue me in the least and some ridiculous and unbelievable interactions between Amelia and her former friendsSo this was uite a disappointment Inly finished it because there wasn t too long to go since by the end I really didn t care about these peopleMY GRADE A C I was excited to get my hands Hirvenmetsästäjä on this book yet terribly disappointed that it was such a let down My main complaint was with the heroine Amelia I thought she was immature andne dimensional The man she ran after Carson was a no good cad Boone the man who loved her however was achingly vulnerable innocent and thoroughly appealing He saved the day Hollywood Walk of Fame: 2000 Sensational Stars, Star Makers and Legends or rather the story Boone waspen to change In fact he longed for it and was eager for his chance to begin a new life in another country I liked that about him Regardless A Christmas Miscellany of his lackf experience he had a maturity that balanced the sometimes Too Bad to Die over sweet lightheartednessf Amelia I believed in Boone s love for Amelia but not hers for him It s too bad because this could have easily been a wildly romantic tale 32 star. Sistible and the thought f indulging his desire for her is too tempting to ignore As Boone and Amelia forge a fragile bond something goes terribly wrong and it will take nothing less than a Christmas miracle for Amelia to discover who she is destined to lo.
The end f the day Just watch Resist (Wicked Ways Book 1) out for Boone s frustrating antics especially in the later partsf this story I can t say I liked this book it was alright I ve read all three in this series and not sure if it s the books Beautiful Ghosts (Inspector Shan, or the authors stylef writing I don t like I ll start with Amelia this is where my problems are Just to start you don t travel half way around the world when your fiance hasn t sent for you When she gets to Texas and finds that everything Carson said was a lie she still believes that he s the man that he pretends to be Amelia admits that she know he lied about most Oh! Calcutta of the stuff he said in London yet that doesn t setff warning bells in her head She believes the new lies which just makes her look very dumb Carson has a moment Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, of goodness when he comes into Amelia s room and tells her about Boone s past and that he was leaving that was a touching moment When Amelia wakes up she completely seems to forget that he said he was leaving and is surprised by the news When Boone and Amelia go back to London they go to a ball Boone tells her he is very nervous and when they attend the ball Amelia spends no time with Boone where she should be Amelia spends the whole night dancing withther men she doesn t seem to care about anyone but herself most f the time Boone really needed her and all she thought about was herself I didn t really like Amelia but I did like Boone very much Boone had less experence than she did when it came to sex and Amelia was his first kiss this is different from any book I ve read and it just made to like Boone even Boone had a horrible childhood which explanes alot about why he puts up with Carson When I read a book by Ms Goodger I expect something emotionally poignant A story that will make my heart ache and my eyes tear However it didn t happen with A Christmas Waltz It was missing that mphf factor that little something that pull the readers into the story and make them care so much about the characters Part Reasoning and the Logic of Things of the problem is that it was very hard to sympathize with Amelia Yes it was unfortunate that she got sweet talked by Carson and that she fell in love with a man that didn t exist However leaving England in pursuitf her fianc was her decision and therefore the situation was her The Holcroft Covenant / The Rhinemann Exchange own doing Also there was Amelia herself To me she came across as immature spoiled and selfish It didn t show too much in the beginningf the book but when she was reunited with her brother and sister in law Not wanting to assume the conseuences The Night Before Christmas: or, A Visit from St. Nicholas: The Heirloom Edition of her action the fact that she d be ruined becausef her decisions if she returned to England unmarried Then later when she did return to England with Boone it felt like she didn t think The Queens Assassin (Queens Secret, of Boone Didn t try to understand his discomfort with herbvious wealth Space Calculated in Seconds or even help him adapt to his new surrounding Not adjusting to her new situation either wanting such a grand house such a big staff etc It was a lotf me me me and that really got Lightning on my nerve Mostly because despite her foolishness she ended up with a great man Really unfair Luckily what saved the book for me was Boone s character He s pretty much Amelia spposite the strong and silent type very
with a heart and so generous He deserved a lot than what he got in life It was very heart breaking his childhood and his belief that he was not lovable I felt that Boone s character was well developed and layered and his relationship with Carson was uite interesting The rest was pretty decent The storyline was kay I liked the setting and the book did have its moments One that comes to mind is when Carson comes to Amelia and tellsobservant with a
Her To Take Care Ofto take care f that he deserves to be loved That was very touching So really the HH is what made and broke A Christmas Waltz and while Boone was a great hero he unfortunately cannot make up completely for Amelia Amelia played a rather foolish role thinking herself in love For such an intelligent girl The story line dragged Atomic Bodyslams to Whiskey Zippers on too much There are three books in this Christmas trilogy and last year I recommended A Christmas Scandal which is book two and today I m recommending book three tomorrow I ll do bookne Marry Christma.
