Farraday Country, Book 1
From the publisher:
Welcome to Farraday Country, a twist on the popular 7 brides for 7 brothers set in cattle-ranching west Texas, with all the friends, family and fun that fans have come to expect from USA TODAY Bestselling author Chris Keniston.
On a barren road in the pre-dawn hours, Adam Farraday, the oldest of seven siblings, happens upon a disabled sports car and an angel in white searching for a disappearing dog. What is it about this secretive redheaded beauty that intrigues him as no woman has before?
After learning her fiancé’s true nature minutes before her wedding, Meg O’Brien drives as fast and as far away from her world as she can. Stranded with no money, and nowhere to go, the city girl must learn to fit in to small town life and all its quirky trappings. Too bad falling in love with her handsome rescuer is not an option.
This was a super fun read. I loved the damsel in distress idea, especially with her being stranded as it upped the tension considerably. Amazon is giving away the Kindle version of this book (as of this writing) so I got to read the first book of the series. There are 11 in total, and I look forward to reading the rest.
Keniston does a really good job with such a short book – I think it falls into novella territory. Regular readers here may remember I often complain about short books because they lack character development. That holds especially true when it’s the first book of a series that is introducing multiple characters. But I am not complaining here! Shocking, I know. I really liked the story, the characters, and the setting, so that bodes well for the rest of the series. Count me in.
By the way, if you don’t have a Kindle, you can also read this on a tablet or phone using the free Kindle app. If you want a Kindle, there are often sales. I linked to a sale price of $59.99 for however long that lasts, no guarantees. So go for it!
