|Wed to a Highland Warrior (The Warrior King)
I waited a long time to write my review for this book, after I think the book has been released. Donna Fletcher is an odd author for me. I’ve read all her books and genuinely enjoy them, but I would never put her on a list of authors who are excellent, who write quality fiction. I approach her books expecting a lot less from her than I do other authors in the same genre like Julia Quinn or Courtney Milan. Because I don’t expect much, until now I have been sincerely entertained. Her Sinclaire series was fun, and until this last entry, I thought her Warrior King series was her best work. But the final entry, the last one for the series, leaves me cold inside and I wanted to stop, give the book some breathing room and reread.
So I think this is my last Julie Garwood for a while. At least, until she writes another historical. Since she branched into the contemporary market, I’ve found myself increasingly dissatisfied, to the point that I’ve struggled to finish books. If I hadn’t been reviewing this book as an ARC, I would have stopped reading this book after about eleven pages. The same problems keep cropping up, and there are just better books I could be spending my time on. I’ll always remember her earlier books fondly, but I know Garwood can do better.
