Sweet Cherry Ray by Marcia Lynn McClure

Sweet Cherry Ray by Marcia Lynn McClure

Excerpt from Goodreads:
“Cherry glanced at her pa who frowned and slightly shook his head. Still, she couldn’t help herself and she leaned over and looked down the road.
She could see the rider and his horse—a large buckskin stallion. As he rode nearer, she studied his white shirt, black flat-brimmed hat and double-breasted vest. Ever nearer he rode and she fancied his pants were almost the same color as his horse, with silver buttons running down the outer leg. Cherry had seen a similar manner of dress before—on the Mexican vaqueros that often worked for her pa in the fall.
“Cherry,” her pa scolded in a whisper as the stranger neared them. 
She straightened and blushed, embarrassed by being as impolite in her staring as the other town folk were in theirs. It seemed everyone had stopped whatever they had been doing to walk out to the street and watch the stranger ride in.
No one spoke—the only sound was that of the breeze, a falcon’s cry overhead and the rhythm of the rider’s horse as it slowed to a trot….”

Historical Romance, free e-book from Amazon (read on my phone app)

My Review:
This was a quick, fun read.  The characters were delightful and witty.  I liked the humor, the romance, the stupid troubles that came up, and the setting.  

This is the first book I've read by Marcia Lynn McClure and I look forward to reading others.

Warnings: Steamy kissing, talk of saloon girls and what they do, gun fights/killing

I would let my 15 year old read this book.

  1. So Karrie Smith, you know...from Galveston, got me on to her books. Most are fun. Yes, some of the grammar/spellings are hard to get through, but oh, are they enjoyable reads. ;) Try Crimson Frost next!
