(One of) My Favorite Cookie Cutters
This one was exactly like all her others, and more so. When it started out I was like, wait a second, they seem like each other right away, where's the story? Then it turned in to a marriage of convenience variation, then her parents died so it turned into a triumph over adversity, and then the evil scheming other cowboy came into the forefront and it started reminding me very strong of The Harvey Girls. But throughout, it was basically just "I love him but he doesn't love me" and vice versa. And what more could I want? :) Okay, in all seriousness, I would definitely a enjoy a more substantial and less dragged out book more, but that's not what I read these for. And whatever else you can say about it, this book delivers on expectations.
So verdict: for an Christian romance, 4.5/5. In general... 3.5/5 - I seem to be getting more picky in my old age :)
As for food... well it was as good as it could be for what it was... so I'm going to go with bakery cake - it's definitely good, and I wouldn't say no to it, and I enjoy it, and it's a treat- but it just can't compare to the best of home made stuff - I don't refer to exceptions of course, just the general case :)
