After reading the first book Doctor in Petticoats I could not wait to read this book. I admit to being slightly disappointed. I did enjoy it very much but I found the story to be boring(to me) just a little. Logan is artist and the author spends a lot of time talking about paintings and art and I found it hard to follow and found myself skimming over it at times. I also felt Sally was really not a great fit for the guy and to me they just never meshed. But it was well written and I found the description of Yellowstone easy to see in my head and made me wish I was there with the characters.
I also enjoyed the suspense of the book relative to Sally being sought after due to what happened to cause her injuries. Also in this book we also are still following the story of Mandy and I found myself just wanting to get through this book so I could read the ending to her story. Over all I give it high marks and recommend if your reading the series to not skip this book because you would miss a lot and that would make the 3rd book a little harder to get into.
