    I really enjoyed this rural romance, it was an enjoyable read while at the same time covering some pretty full on issues The characters were real as were the situations they found themselves in and it showed how family relationships aren t always as they seem.

    Reviewed for Confessions From RomaholicsTo see review at ConfessionsBridie s Choice is the authors third release and the first book of hers I have read The story follows Bridie Farrell as she navigates through a few months of her life in her small hometown where the Farrell s are pretty much the black sheep Doesn t matter that Bridie tried to make something out of her life with her limited education and stayed out of trouble because the rest of her family has made up for it Now her brother, Luke [...]

    Simple Stereotypical Story.Rich farmer poor barmaid from wrong side of the tracks Sure, we all love a good rural fairytale, and the first few chapters depth of delivery allowed a wonderful sense of the characters dramas and a true magical feel of the countryside ButAbout a third through it became cardboard, with rare snippets of word magic The main character, Bridie, was a frustrating contradiction who became unlikeable towards the end, and part of the story is where two women get assaulted and [...]

    Rating 3 starsReview This was a nice, easy read about two people who fall in love despite all their life dilemmas and challenges Bridie has always wanted to leave the small country town that she s grown up in , while Shaun has always wanted to stay and run his own farm The romance between them was cute and sweet, however wasn t overly passionate or romantic, which are my all time favourite types of books I definitely think the author could have spruced up the romance department of this book, con [...]

    Best book by Karly yet Liked how two people from different walks of life can come together Unlike his parents, Shaun didn t judge Bridie because of her families past and saw her for who she really is Grr I just wanted to strangle Douglas thoughch a bastard No wonder his kids were depressed It was nice to see that Bridie finally forgave her father too, although I never did understand why he ended up in jail and his brothers didn t book

  18. Kiah Stephens

    While I enjoyed this story, I found myself getting frustrated at many points as it seemed with each new challenge it would end with one person walking away.Otherwise it was a lovely read with believable settings.

  19. Aileen

    Another great book by Karly Lane A story that shows you that you can move on from your past and make a future that you didn t expect yourself to be doing The relationship between Bridie and Shaun was one that no one expected to work but did.
