The Wagering Widow by Diane Gaston

This is my first book for Angie's February TBR Challenge

Title: The Wagering Widow

Author: Diane Gaston

Year published: 2006

Why did you get this book? The first in this series received rave reviews and since I'm having a hard time finding it, I had to order it. I decided to pick this one up, and then decided to read it even though I knew it was part of a series.

Do you like the cover? Yes, I liked the cover.

Did you enjoy the book? Yes

Was the author new to you and would you read something by this author again? New to me and I would definitely read her again

Are you keeping it or passing it on? Keeping it at least until the series is finished.

Anything else? This is one of those books the more I thought about it the more I liked it. Rarely do I prefer the heroine to the hero of a book, but this book has a great heroine, the hero is good too, but I really liked Emily and thinking about how she bullies her brother makes me laugh, probably because I can still bully mine.

I really want to read this too--I read the Mysterious Miss M, liked it, and bet she's just getting better. Thanks for reviewing!

I was going to do this one for the challenge also! I don't have the Mysterious Miss M and have decided I want to read that one first.

I'm going to read Ride the Fire because of Kristie. I'll end up reading my 'safety net' Kleypas yet!

Megan and Cindy--I was going to wait until I'd read The Mysterious Miss M, but this was burning a hole in my TBR pile.

Kristie (J) said...

I have this one TBR - it doesn't qualify for the challenge since I read and loved The Mysterios Miss M. It's worth your effort to track it down!

The first book is available on amazon. I just ordered one from a secondary seller. I'm waiting to read this book until after I read The Mysterious Miss M.

hee I looked this up because of you ;). And even posted. I didn't realize she is Perkins as well.

The next book is already out in the uk. I like ths US cover better. LOL of course I haven't bought any of them yet.
