Praise for Peace River"Give me a clean romance, humor and a good looking cowboy and I'm a happy girl. LDS fiction isn't always my favorite but I really enjoyed the characters and adventure in this book." ~Carol - Goodreads "There was plenty of action, adventure and danger to keep me guessing just how everything was going to turn out. I didn't want to put it down until I finished! Jaclyn Hawkes is one of my favorite LDS romance authors. You really can't go wrong with any of her books that you pick up!" ~Cathy -Goodreads

The beginning of the book grabbed my attention right away! I felt drawn into the story of this mysterious girl and this incredible cowboy who had rescued her. For the majority of the book, I was completely interested and couldn't seem to put it down, yet there were some points where the book felt slow and and disjointed from the rest of the story. I liked the fast pace that Kit's life became, yet I felt like she was too perfect at everything. She then became almost unreal and non relatable. It seemed unrealistic that someone could be a prodigy at sculpting, guitar, a super intelligent person and on top of that, every guy wants her? Where was her flaw? Rossen was a fabulous character yet he was frustrating me so much with his blind sense of chivalry. At the end, I felt like things were too rushed, I finally got what I was hoping for and then poof! It's over with one short paragraph for an epilogue? I felt cheated somehow! Don't get me wrong, this book was completely intriguing and I want to read the next one, I just felt like there were a few things that could have helped the book be even better! Kit really needed some type of flaw! Overall this is a really good read and I look forward to reading about Rossen's brother in the next book in the Rockland Ranch Series!
