REVIEW: THE LAST RENEGADE is just one more to add to Goodman's great list of books. If you are a Western fan, even if you're not you will totally enjoy this book. The author has developed characters that fit in so well. The book is steaming with sex as well as secrets that come to light very slowly and one at a time. There is a little bit for everyone, humore, fast paced, twists and turns, love, hot steamy sex and oh those secrets? As you turn the pages your heart stops just a little. The author teases you with just enough to keep you on edge and turning that next page. You may become a romantic western lover after all. Go ahead and try it. It's quite good.
About the Author:
Jo Goodman is a licensed professional counselor working with children and families in West Virginia’s northern panhandle. Always a fan of happily ever after, Jo turned to writing romances early in her career as a child care worker when she realized the only life script she could control was the one she wrote herself. She is inspired by the resiliency and courage of the children she meets and feels privileged to be trusted with their stories, the ones that they alone have the right to tell. Once upon a time, Jo believed she was going to be a marine biologist. She feels lucky that seasickness made her change course.
I'd give this book a 4.5 STARS.
I received this complimentary copy of this book from Manic Reader Reviews for this unbiased review.
