Book Review – Darlin’ Druid

Darlin’ Druid Title aside – this is a great book!!

Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Author: Lyn Horner
Format: Kindle

After surviving the great Chicago fire, Jessie Delvin is haunted by visions of her future—a future she is compelled to find forcing her to leave home and join her brother’s journey west to find her destiny.  But the Wild West turns out to be just that and Jessie’s sharp tongue and fine feminine figure attract the attention of far too many brutish men.  Fortunately, Captain David Taylor, a Texan cattle rancher turned soldier saves Jessie from the clutches of a particularly unsavory character.  Immediately Jessie and David are passionately attracted to one another, but neither is what they other really wants—or so they think…

I’ll admit I was completely thrown by the title of this book.  If for some reason you are as well, “fuhgeddaboudit”!  This is an engaging, page turning, can’t put it down, don’t know where the time went, read.  In fact, when I received Horner’s book I had already started Steig Larsson’s “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”; having finished the first two books in Larsson’s series I was anxious to complete the third.  But I picked up Horner’s book and frankly the pace was so much faster and the book more engaging that I put best selling Hornet aside in favor of finishing Horner’s book.

The characters, love triangle and compelling plot line compete with the best in this genre.  This is a full force romance novel with some unique twists that readers are sure to enjoy.  I encourage readers to give it a try.  You won’t be disappointed!

    Todd,
    I’m so grateful for your glowing review of Darlin’ Druid! My breath caught when I read it. Having my writing compared to Steig Larsson’s, and in a favorable light, is overwhelming. I sincerely hope other readers will agree with you! Oh, and I know the title is kind of off the wall, but it does fit my story. I plan to title the sequel — about Jessie Devlin’s brother, Tye — Dashing Druid. I’m hoping to publish it later this year. First, I will be going in a totally different direction with a non-fiction memoir, Six Cats in My Kitchen. I’ll be adding it here on Tag My Book as soon as it becomes available.

    Thanks again, Todd!

  4. Excellent review Todd.
    Excuse the message coming this way, but my email is down and I cannot get my emails downloaded.
    I have just completed your January 2011 TMBOA books and found I have already done all of them !
    Am I going round the twist, or did you send it earlier and I forgot to delete it?

    After nearly a week of being locked out of my computer by a nasty malware infestation, I’m back up and running. I think I’m up to date with tagging but not sure. If I’ve missed anyone, I apologize. And thanks to Laurie and Carole for their comments about Todd’s review of Darlin’ Druid. Kind thoughts are much appreciated! Lyn
