Morgan's Mountain - Krista Ames

3.5 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
On the proverbial run from another failed relationship, Morgan finds herself in the one place she always found solace. With every intention of being alone, she’s surprised when she comes across the one person she never expected.

Luke would go to the ends of the earth to figure out why Morgan ran away five years ago and make things right with her. However, a dangerous trek up the mountains to her family’s cabin might not have been the smartest choice. To say she was happy to see him would be a huge lie.  Having to rescue him, mortifying for Luke.

 
Toss a kidnapper into the mix and their feelings for each other are brought into perspective, revealing parts of themselves they never thought would come to light.
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Born and raised in Northern Indiana, Krista now resides in Northern Lower Michigan.  She is married to a very supportive man who allows her to follow her true passion of writing and never complains when she is pirated away on her computer for hours.  He is excellent at bouncing ideas around with and even helps the occasional writers block.  He’s also a terrific “in house” editor.  Krista is also a mother of 4 ornery children who keep her plenty busy.  With an addition of 2 beautiful chocolate lab sisters and a playful kitty, there is never a dull or spare moment in her household. 

Krista has always loved to read and would often sit up for hours into the night not able to put down a book until she was finished.  She still reads when she can but her main focus is creating her own stories to share with the world.

MY THOUGHTS -
This was a fun, flirty, adventurous, quick read.  Even though I felt this story needed a little more spit and polish - I did enjoy it! I liked the characters (good character development) and I loved the storyline, although not original, still one I always love to read about.
 
About the only thing that really bothered me was the sex scene seemed out of place. I feel like it should have waited till maybe towards the end. For me it took away from the story.
The rest I really liked.  Yes, it also was unrealistic, but this didn't bother me and never does with "fiction" for me it doesn't have to be real. If I wanted real I would read non-fiction.
 
Krista did a great job with painting the scene for us. I could really picture the cabin, the surrounding grounds, the horses, everything - nice job! I love it when books can put a picture in my head.  
 
All-in-all I thought this was definitely a worth while read! This was my first book from this author - I didn't even know she had other books. Sorry Krista! I would absolutely read more books from this author.
 
Thank you Roane Publishing and Krista Ames for sending me this e-book for my honest review!
