Coming home again to Keeneston! Definately a must read in Kathleen
Brooks' Bluegrass series!! Marshall Davies is now the sherriff - and
he just cannot help himself from picking on former model now vet Katelyn
Jacks. Could Marshall have a bit more competition then he can handle as
Katelyn and Ahmed get closer while she tends to a dog brutally mauled
and used in an international dog-fighting ring? I think this is the
best yet in the Bluegrass series! I absolutely loved this book! I
chuckled outloud well into the early hours of the morning as I devoured
this lastest installment. Poor Marshall LOL!!!

I have to say i am most disappointed. Ive read all her books and was extremely disappointed when i was reading this and how she portraits pit bulls. They are not dangerous dogs. Its people like her who paint this picture of these loveable dogs as monsters. I will never read another book she writes. Punish the deed not the breed. I have a pit bull and she gives nothing but love and kisses. Clearly this writer hasnt been educated or around pit bulls to know how loving and friendly nature they have. Us humans are the guys. We try to train them to kill, we are the bad guys. Go research oggy, wallace, hector, see how lovable and harmless they are!

    Bluegrass series

    This is a fun series, but this particular story could use a stronger rewrite. Rising Storm features the former model now veterinary surgeon, whose father is an obnoxious hotel chain magnate, and whose grandparents are full of old-fashioned southern charm, and her rough start relationship with Marshall Davies, now town sheriff, who is full of himself and makes erroneous assumptions about the heroine's background and attitudes. Love the characters in the series, but this novel feels choppy. More background about who Marshall is, his family and the town history and characters is needed early on. Too much is dropped in that fans of the series will recognize, but first time readers who start with this novel will find choppy and confusing. The prologue would have been better pulled in as flashbacks - it feels disconnected from the rest of the story, and although the plot is driven by the dog fighting ring, the character development isn't smooth. The initial series, and later Ahmed's story are better. Nonetheless, this earns three stars for concept, occassional fun dialogue, and the way the story builds in the best and worst of rural small town life.

    Rising Storm

    Really enjoyed this second book in the Bluegrass Brothers series. Lots of plot twists (even though I figured out who the bad guys were) and turns.

    Quirky romance

    Sweet story with all the quirkiness and charm of small town dynamics. Katelyn is hardworking and completely different than her reputation as a model. Marshall can't believe that he is attracted to someone who he can't possibly like-right?

    Their romantic relationship is full of starts and stalls all while an illegal dog-fighting ring is wreaking havoc on their town.

    Cute story with likeable characters.

    Loved it!!!

    I read this story out of order and didn't realize it. It was still an awesome books and I had to find the rest of the stories. They flow from one to the other. Loved them!

    It just not for me

    I couldn't finish it...
    I am not a big dog lover, but you kind of have to be to get into this story. I think this would be a great story for anyone who adores dogs.

    Loved it till the end....disappointed

    I have thoroughly enjoyed each of the Bluegrass series books. Rising Storm was no different until the last couple chapters. It read as if author was suddenly replaced. The story became rushed and a honestly a bit corny. I got the feeling that a deadline was approaching too quickly and the story was just carelessly wrapped up much too quicly in the last 40 pages. Rising Storm deserved more. Very disappointing. I still look forward to the completion of the series and hope that the author will return to her past writing style that I enjoyed so much.
