Goodreads Book Blurb:
Series / Genres:
This terrible romance has finally crossed the line from ‘slight annoyance‘ to ‘ruining the story‘ and it makes me so mad. I loved so much about The Silver Shooter – the western setting, magic and alchemy, the introduction of the Lakota people into the narrative – but why? Why do we have to deal with this stupid social status romance nonsense?
It felt at times like the characters were running around in circles. They kept commenting on how little time they had to figure things out due to the deadly nature of the case – especially once someone they care about is arrested – but they spend an awful lot of time hanging out in the saloon and kissing. And thinking about kissing. I wish the focus had been more on the magic and the mystery. Because it is such a good mystery.
Burrows and Edith are quickly becoming so much more interesting than Rose and Thomas. I would love a spinoff where these two realise they’re perfect for each other. Mainly because then we wouldn’t have to deal with this social status drama bullshit. It can’t be a coincidence, either, that the more Clara is cut out of the narrative, the more annoying it gets.
And the ending. Really? I could not have ended this worse if I had tried. I went digging, looking for even the hint of a possibility of another book in the Rose Gallagher Mystery series. I finally found a blog entry on Lindsey’s website confirming that there will be a fourth book, but it took a lot of effort to find even that small nugget of hope. I hate romantic complications based on people not fucking talking to each other.
Dumb. So freaking dumb. I swear, if there isn’t another book to clear up all this nonsense, I will have lost all faith in Lindsey. Which would suck, considering she’s quickly becoming one of my favourite authors.
