Book Review - Against the Wind by, Kat Martin
This is a review on the book Against the Wind by, Kat Martin, part of the Raines of Wind Canyon romance book series.
Against the Wind
Sarah Allen is recently widowed. Wanting to completely forget the life she spent with her abusive husband Sarah is packing up herself and her daughter and heading back to the town Wind Canyon, Wyoming where she grew up.
When she arrives she rents a charming cabin home for her and her daughter, but soon finds out that cabin actually belongs to Jackson Raines who Sarah had a brief fling with in High School.
Jackson Raines has grown up quite nicely, he is now handsome, built rock solid and wealthy. When he first finds out that Sarah Allen the girl that broke his heart in high school is renting his cabin he is not exactly happy about it. As soon as he sees her though old feelings start to stir.
Life in Wyoming would be perfect for Sarah and his daughter but it seems her dead husband left something hiding and there are people who will stop at nothing to get it and they are making Sarah's life miserable. The sad thing is Sarah does not even have any idea what they are talking about.
Sarah does find out however, that she does have a trustworthy ally in Jackson Raines and the two them are out to solve the mystery of the missing item so Sarah can have her life back. Of course things get a little steamy along the way.
My Thoughts On the Book
I found Against the Wind to be a little more exciting and with a bit more depth than a lot of romance novels. In fact I would almost go so far as to say that this was a mystery tied up in a romance.
The story is very well thought out and as much detail went in to the mystery aspect of the story as their was detail in the romance and the passionate love making scenes of the book.
If you like a good amount of steamy passion in a book but need something a little substantial to get you through till the next love scene then you might really enjoy Against the Wind by, Kat Martin which is the first book in the The Raines of Wind Canyon series. I can't wait to read the next one.
