In the period leading up to Christmas I had some time off and lots of machine quilting to do so I donned my Kinivo Blue Tooth Headset, downloaded some audiobooks from Audible and set to work. I lucked out as I really enjoyed both books I listened to during the lead up to Christmas. I picked a new to me author with Karen Witemeyer, based entirely on the cover and the cover blurb since I had never heard of Karen prior to my search for a good quilting read. I also picked up Silver Thaw by Catherine Anderson who has been on my auto-buy list for a long time. Both these books had an inspirational romance feel, without venturing into the land of too preachy, which I enjoyed.
This book reminded me a little of the old TV series Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. In the TV series, Dr. Michaela (known as Mike) Quinn moves from the posh world of Boston to a rough and randy frontier town in Colorado to practice medicine. The hero in Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Byron Sully (known mostly as Sully on the show), was much softer and much less wounded (figuratively and otherwise) than the hero Rafe McCay in Linda Howard’s The Touch of Fire.
