Author: Kaki Warner
What I’m Talking About:
It is no secret that I tend to really enjoy Kaki Warner’s novels, and Tall Texas was no exception. It is a lovely story about second and even third chances, along with finding healing and learning to forgive yourself and others. It tackles themes like equality and trust without getting preachy and has the perfect balance of sweetness, spunk and humor.
I adored Ty and Lottie and all their issues, together and apart. I felt like their struggles were real and relatable to the time period, as were their strengths. Their chemistry was fun, which made for terrific banter and sweet soulful moments that added wonderfully to the story.
The secondary characters were equally well written with their own strengths that added a great dynamic to the story and reiterated the variety of themes without taking away from Ty and Lottie.
The descriptions are vivid, romantic and chocked full of crisp beautiful images. Likewise the language as a whole is beautiful flows like the smell of cotton blossoms on a spring breeze for example:
“He was her anchor-her lost self- the part that had been missing from her life that made her whole.”
It is imagery like this, coupled with the colorful characters and strong storyline, that had me turning page after page.
All in all, I would highly recommend this fun, fast moving tale placed in the wild of Texas. I have no doubt you’ll enjoy every moment of your time with Ty and Lottie.
My Rating: A, Loved It
About the Book:
Seeking vengeance for a tragic past, Tyree Benton joined the Rangers and became a different man—but his brutal actions still twist his conscience. Now he’s found a woman he could love, but she deserves more than a man who makes a living getting shot at. If Ty were honorable, he’d leave her alone. But he can’t seem to stay away….
Orphaned at fourteen, Charlotte Weyland has used her talent for numbers to build enough of a fortune to fund Ty’s dream of owning a ranch…if he’s not too stubborn to accept her help. But when Charlotte’s past catches up to her, she finds herself on one side of the law with Ty on the other. To keep their dreams alive, they’ll have to make compromises, but doing so might cost them everything they have…
