Cactus Creek Challenge by Erica Vetsch

Book: The Cactus Creek Challenge
Author: Erica Vetsch
Publisher: Shiloh Run Press
Publishing Date: July 1, 2015

I received a copy of this book from the publisher and in exchange for an honest review.

Why I chose this book: My first encounter with Erica was through The Golden State Brides collection by Barbour Books.

Type of book: Texas, 1888

Message/plot: Allowing oneself to be open to others and vulnerable isn't a bad thing; you may get hurt but the things you gain make it worth the risk.

Favorite characters, quotes / lines: "Of course she did. She was ten pounds of determination in a five-pound sack."

When I finished this book: This was cute; simple.

Overall: This story has everything a good novel needs. I think it a little too predictable and would have liked to see a little more tension within the characters themselves. By going deeper, the author could be a little more vulnerable, leading to showing us more than just telling us. Overall though, it's a pretty good story.

If you want a taste of this book, pick up the #FREE novella that kicks off this story: The Legend of Obadiah Wilder
