Back in Kansas: Book Review

I just finished reading Back in Kansas by Debra Salone. I read this book for The Harlequin/Silhouette Reading Challenge. I use to read these books a lot, espically when hubby was overseas in Iraq... ha ha ha!
Okay get back to the review Tena!

" For too many years Claudie St. James has kept her past- with it's dark secret- to herself. Now she's met the most wonderful man in the world- Robert Lester, known to his friends as Bo. But before she can allow herself to fall in love, she has to go back to Kansas to confront the family she hasn't seen in nearly twenty years....
" So one evening she leaves her California home without telling a soul. But she'd underestimated Bo's skill as a private investigator. He tracks her down and joins her. Together they travel east, stopping to look up brothers and sisters Claudies barely recognizes. Till they reach Otter Creek, Kansas....
" Suddenly, as she prepares to right and old wrong, Claudie's very grateful that Bo is with her...."

I had a really hard getting into this book, and I don't think it had anything to do with the book itself. It was totally me, and reading nothing but Vampires and such. Should take this as a lesson and change it up more often and not get stuck on one type of book.

Once I got to about page 100 I was able to wrap my brain around the story line and the characters. It was nice when I thought the story was going everywhere it could possibly go, just to find it did in fact go in a whole new direction.

On my rating scale I will give this book 3 1/2 stars.
Until next time...
Happy Reading

These get about the same rating from me. Some aren't too bad though.
