Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Great Characters and a Solid Storyline

The Devil You Know - Jo Goodman

The Devil You Know was an all-consuming western historical romance that found me completely in love with its characters. Add to that a plot filled with secrets, surprises and tons of heart, and you have the perfect combination for an unforgettable story.

‘What she finally acknowledged, reluctantly and unhappily, was that Israel McKenna reminded her she was a woman.’

I absolutely adore the way Jo Goodman writes her characters. They are flawed, down-to-earth, and have interesting, realistic quirks that set them each apart. There’s just something about how she describes their personality and their emotions that draws a reader in and you feel like you truly get to know who they are. And this book being set on a ranch in a somewhat remote location was a rather intimate setting for this story to take place.
