Jonah By: Kelli Ann Morgan
I actually met Kelli Ann Morgan at a local our harvest celebration in Brigham City called Peach Days. He and another local author had a booth and was selling their books. This is one I just happened to pick up after she told me it was a love story but not a romance novel. Plus she was selling it for $5; how can someone pass up a five dollar book? Well it sat and sat on my night stand for a couple weeks until I picked it up one night and started to read. Best and Worst decision I made that week. I got hooked and my sleep suffered. Luckily it was a shorter book (only 98 pages) so it didn't take me long to finish.
So this is my review: The only bad thing I have to say about this book is there is a couple loose ends that didn't get tied up but not any major ones and the occasional editing error. That's it I loved the characters. It was a fun, laid back book that plunged me into life back in the old west where you could ride for miles and miles without running into anything or anybody. It reminded me of a simpler time where love is rich and deep and people worked hard for what they had. (physically) I can definitely see myself picking this book back up for a quick read to get me away from my textbooks and homework for a time.
