Seasons of Tallgrass Series - by Deborah Vogt
Mattie Evans, a young veterinarian in rural Kansas, saves a horse injured in a terrible accident. But she also finds herself tending the wounded relationship between a prodigal son and his ailing father, in the first book of the Seasons of the Tallgrass series.
My Thoughts: This book was enjoyable yet somewhat predictable. A lonely veterinarian who loves the countryside meets a pro football player who can't wait to get away from the country side and back to the big city, at odds from the beginning. It's a story of sticking to your dreams but knowing when to compromise. Well written and I did enjoy this novel, I just wish more Christian fiction had unexpected twists and turns. Deborah's writing style is fluid and did draw me into the plot right away, which I always appreciate. I hate when it takes 100 pages to get into a story, and then only have 100 left to the end. :)
SEEDS OF SUMMER
A heart-warming contemporary romance set in the Flint Hills of Kansas where a former rodeo queen abandons her dreams in order to care for her deceased father’s ranch and her two half-siblings, only to realize with the help of a young new pastor that God can turn even the most dire circumstances into seeds of hope.
Spanning the Seasons of the Tallgrass, each story in this series reveals the struggle of the people who live there and the dreams they have for the land until they come full-circle in a never-ending cycle, just as man comes full-circle in his understanding of God
My Thoughts: I liked the first book in this series better, but this one was good. It was predictable and I found Jared's role in the plot a bit unrealistic, but I really liked how Natalie's character rose to the challenge of caring for her brother and sister, and how willing she was to give up her dreams for them. It's admirable. I don't think many people now-a-days would do the same. This is an enjoyable story for lovers of rodeo and western themed novels, and those who enjoy an easy romance plot.
