Présentation de l'éditeur

Where the Wind Blows, Book One of USA Today bestselling author Caroline Fyffe’s award winning western historical romance Prairie Hearts series.

In the free and untamed Wild West, love might blossom in the most unexpected place…

When the man from the orphanage mistakes Chase Logan for Jessie Strong’s husband, the least Chase can do is help Jessie adopt the child she so desperately wants, the little girl who will be Jessie’s only family in the Wyoming wilderness. Three days are all she asks. Three days pretending to love a woman who is unlike any he has ever known…

Jessie knows it’s chivalry, plain and simple, that spurs Chase Logan to come to her rescue the day little Sarah arrives at her door. A man like him isn’t made for settling down; he is as wild as the land he roams. She should know better than to let down her guard, to allow herself to long for a family and a life with someone she hardly knows. And yet she dares to hope that maybe, just maybe, Chase Logan is the man destined to make all of her dreams come true.

The Western Historical Romance Prairie Hearts Series:
Book One – Where the Wind Blows
Book Two – Before the Larkspur Blooms
Book Three – West Winds of Wyoming
Book Four – Under a Falling Star
Book Five – Whispers on the Wind

If you like your entire cast (bar one or two baddies) to be honest, clean, good people, with hints at a darker past that actually isn't, then this is for you. A marriage is undertaken in order to facilitate the saving of a child from an orphanage. Neither party to the marriage means for it to be more than in name only, but when danger strikes, the entire family decamp to the hero's long abandoned home, in a winter's journey that comes close to disaster. There is a falling out, and a reconciliation, and a happy ending. Predictable, pleasant, a gentle, unchallenging read.

HASH(0x91ff9d38) étoiles sur 5 Gifted Writer Weaves Wonderful Tale 17 août 2009
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
You can tell right from the first page that you're reading a book by an award-winning author. The pages keep turning and before you know it, you are half way done with the book! The pacing is great, there is always something new unraveling in the lives of Jessie and Chase, and as you learn more about them, you can't help but hope they'll get past all their problems and find their happy ending. But the problems keep mounting, and you keep reading to find out what will happen next. The story always stays fresh, the secondary characters add flavor to the book, and the descriptions make you really feel like you are back in Wyoming in the 1800s. I thoroughly enjoyed Where the Wind Blows and look forward to the next book by this author. I hope I won't have to wait long!

HASH(0x91ff9d8c) étoiles sur 5 You will LOVE this book! 8 août 2009
Par J.F. Meyer - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a sweet, original, wonderful-to-read story. I've heard it described as Lonesome Dove meets Little House on the Prairie, and that's dead-on-the-money. The characters are fresh and real, and their struggles out-of-the-ordinary yet easy to identify with. Best of all, the book is a page-turner without relying on sensationalism or icky stuff to keep you wondering--and craving--what comes next. It's just a terrific read that leaves you feeling absolutely fabulous. Trust me! Looking for something to lift your spirits? READ THIS BOOK. I just hope it's the beginning of a series, as this author is an outstanding writer and truly gifted storyteller.

HASH(0x91ffc084) étoiles sur 5 Good storyline but pacing and personalities are a problem 28 février 2011
Par SunFlowers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I was hesitant with all the positive reviews because as usual, I just knew something had to be wrong and all these people were blowing lots of smoke or friends of the author and so forth. But I took a gamble and I'm unsure how I feel as a whole.

Overall I think Where the Wind Blows has a truly excellent storyline. Everything is just right BUT the pacing is odd and a lot of the personality traits with the hero and heroine were irritating.

THIS is that book. The one where you're getting close to the end...10 or so pages then the REAL bad stuff happens. I don't like drawing out the drama until the very last second because it makes the beginning and middle just feel like filler.

Jessie is a great heroine but with the odd pacing the author flips her personality. Jessie and our hero Chase have a slow building attraction but honestly, at times it just felt like sexual lust over them actually "liking" each other and falling in love. He's been in mourning over his beloved Molly for 3 years and here's a pretty young blond. He's a red-blooded male so naturally he can't stop thinking of her sweet smell, and innocent face and body. He's horny. Jessie, a widow who never consummated her marriage is just finally feeling like a normal woman attracted to a man. At times I almost felt like any man would have sufficed for her.

The kids were perfect. Jessie's late husband Nathan promised her they would adopt a little girl Jessie took care of when she was younger at the orphanage. When Chase comes to tell her of Nathan's death she fears that she won't get little Sarah without a husband. Chase, coming to tell her of Nathan's demise and give her his paycheck forgets the money and comes back just in time for the orphanage director to arrive with Sarah and Chase is mistaken for her husband.

The storyline with Nathan's paycheck is just odd to me and an annoying mention here and there. Chase develops a connection with little Sarah and together with Jessie, Sarah, and Gabe (Sarah's pseudo-big brother and caretaker at the orphanage when Jessie left) become a little family with Chase. Naturally the bad guys are after them but the pacing of it is just so odd and you think the author has forgotten about the bad guys.

Then Jessie moves from being the sweet character to a little witchy with a B and whiny. She doesn't tell Chase vital information to everyone's safety because he's not speaking to her. Which is dumb because who cares when their lives are on the line.

And of course there IS the meddlesome character of Mrs. Hollycock. I was hoping she'd choke on her tongue from all her clucking and interloping. I hated the ending where she tells Chase something that was Jessie's news to tell. Had Jessie told him she wouldn't have been hesitant to think he only stayed because he knew.

Overall there IS a great storyline here but it just went all over the place and flip floppy and character personalities flipped to where you start liking them then don't care for them at all then are left feeling okay about them.

3 stars. Just for the storyline. No stars for the characters overall.

HASH(0x91ff9f60) étoiles sur 5 Sweet cowboy love story - 3-1/2 stars... 6 octobre 2010
Par L. Burns - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Chase Logan has one stop to make on his way to Cheyenne. He's agreed to tell Nathan Strong's widow of her husband's death and hand over Nathan's pay. One small task and then the free-spirited cowboy can be on his way to his next job. But one look at Jessie Strong and Chase isn't quite so anxious to hit the road...

Jessie isn't devastated to hear of Nathan's death, but it couldn't have come at a worse time. Jessie has made arrangements to adopt a young girl and the adoption can't go through unless Jessie has a husband. Would it harm anything to pretend that Chase was her husband just long enough for the adoption to be official? And just what kind of "rights" is a pretend husband entitled to?

The part of the story dealing with Chase's growing attraction to Jessie and her adopted family was sweet and engaging. I would have liked to see that develop a little more slowly, as it is Chase goes from cowboy loner to family man in a span of about 3 days. I did like the way domesticity just sort of snuck up on Chase and some of his awkward moments around Jessie were quite funny. The writing is smooth and the author does a nice job describing her characters and drawing you into the story.

Two things that made me hesitant to pick this book up were (1) I usually don't care for kids in my romance reading as they tend to overwhelm the story, and (2) I'm always a little leery that a book tagged as `Inspirational' might be too preachy. I'm happy to say that I was wrong on both counts. The children add to this story and the romance; they don't detract in the least and the story has no overt religious overtones. That said, I did have one big issue with Jessie's character, but I can't explain it without including SPOILERS. So here goes...

WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS. Toward the end of the story the author is sprinkling fairy dust left and right and Jessie's life is picture perfect. Then little Sarah is kidnapped and at the same time Jessie discovers something about Chase that makes her think/feel that he has stayed with her out of obligation rather than love. So what does Jessie do? Well, while Chase is out searching for Sarah, Jessie literally packs up her wagon and prepares to make the harrowing two-week journey back to her little cabin. By herself. In the middle of a Wyoming winter. Without telling Chase that she's pregnant with his child. And keep in mind that at this point she doesn't even know if Sarah is dead or alive or if Chase will even find her. A hissy fit that illogical is just plain hard to swallow. END SPOILER.

Overall I did enjoy this story and chose to overlook the little hiccups in the plot. This is a `feel good' read of the first order, and there's nothing wrong with that!

No strong language. There is one love scene and while it's not "closed door", let's just say that the curtains are drawn! Definitely well within the PG range.

Delivering the sad news of Nathan's death to his new widow Jesse, goes from worst to the best experience of this cowboy's life.

Wow! Reading this book was more like watching a very satisfying old fashioned western movie. Our Hero, Chase Logan(wandering lonesome cowboy-the kind we like.....yum) just happens to be in the middle of delivering some bad news to Jesse -when some visitors arrive. The visitors are in fact from the orphanage where Jesse grew up. She and her (now deceased)husband had written and requested the adoption of a 3 year old girl named Sarah. IN a wild moment, Jesse introduces Chase as Nathan. Whoops! The orphanage manager, Mr Hobbs brought along a 13 year old boy named Gage, hoping they would take him as well. Of course "Nathan" says yes(this way he can leave without worrying about the two girls being alone)"Ahhh, the nice guy guilt starts........" He heads out in a blizzard then quickly realizes he forgot to give Jesse Nathan's pay (over $600!) and a locket. When he returns he turns into a bit of a sly-dog thinking he might Really, Really enjoy playing house for the guests a bit..............maybe there will be some benefits involved?...

I really liked the plot, somthing always happening-it never dragged-the characters (secondary ones too) ---Holyhock is a kickin old lady...hahaha-and Gabe is such a mature boy-just like they had to be then. Sarah(cutie-and latching onto Chase-calling him "Da") Even Jake all contribute to this heart warming tale. When Chase and Jesse Marry, the relationship between the two heat up and get complicated. The intimate scenes are never overbearing and actually more on the Romantic, soft sensual side. "nice" The suspense and romance have good little plot twists.

Have a little kleenex handy(every good romance requires it!)

Thanks Caroline-I thoroughly enjoyed this story and will recommend it to all my friends!(and my mom too!)
