LEAVING WHISKEY BEND


Schoolteacher Hallie Wolcott and her no-nonsense friend Pearl Parsons know there's got to be a better place to live than the roughneck town of Whiskey Bend, Colorado. When their friend Mary is assaulted by her brutal stepbrother, it's the last straw. Hallie and Pearl pull up stakes, rescue Mary, and put as many miles of Colorado wilderness behind them as they can. But a violent storm soon sends their journey careening in a different direction. Enter Eli Morgan, a quiet rancher deep in family troubles-and pursued by unseen, ruthless enemies. Now with Mary's vengeful stepbrother closing in on them all, Hallie must learn strength, perseverance, and courage . . . if she is to claim the life and love that can be hers.

Publishers Weekly

Garlock's newest (after On Tall Pine Lake) feels old, and not just because it's set in 1890. Schoolteacher Hallie Wolcott flees Whiskey Bend, Colo., with her friends Pearl and Mary after Mary is beaten by Chester, one of the town's many brutes. Pearl, the eldest, has been through this before, and she won't rest until they find a place that feels safe. Fortunately, a powerful storm leaves them washed up at tumbledown ranch owned by Eli Morgan. Eli's cantankerous and cruel mother wants no part of the women, but she begrudgingly changes her mind when an accident lands her in bed. Meanwhile, Chester's been tracking the ladies; will he find them at the ranch, the place where each woman feels she can finally find true happiness? The answer to this and other "cliffhangers" are apparent to the reader long before the resolutions are played out on the page. The prose is lifeless, the dialogue wooden and the whole thing reads like a poorly strung-together mishmash of western romance tropes. (Nov.)

    I'm a loyal fan of Dorothy Garlock's novels

    Dorothy Garlock is a New York Times bestselling author and she is even quoted as "THE VOICE OF AMERICA'S HEARTLAND." Dorothy Garlock writings mostly in the time period of the 1920s and 1930s but she also writes in the time period of the 1980s. I personally love to read her books, which I stumbled on to while I was walking around Barnes & Noble one day searching for new books. She is an automatic buy for me because even though I've read that some people thought her novels are repetative I don't think that's true. Schoolteacher Hallie Wolcott, the heroine, and her no-nonsense friend Pearl Parsons know there¿s got to be a better place to live than the roughneck town of Whiskey Bend, Colorado. Wow I alway find out the names of some of the states the west of NYC so interesting even if the author has made up the town it's interesting how each small down has a weird name. I especially like it that they usually name it for something the town is either famous for or something important happened in the town and it was named after that. Now when Hallie and Pearl's friend Mary is assaulted by her brutal stepbrother, it¿s the last straw for these two women. <BR/><BR/><BR/>Hallie and Pearl pull up stakes, rescue Mary, and put as many miles of Colorado wilderness behind them as they can. But a violent storm soon sends their journey careening in a different direction and that is when things get really interesting for these three ladies on the run. Enter Eli Morgan, a quiet rancher deep in family troubles¿and pursued by unseen, ruthless enemies. Eli has come home from being in the army to find out that his family is in shambles and that his father is long dead and buried by his murdered younger brother. Now with Mary¿s vengeful stepbrother closing in on them all, Hallie must learn strength, perseverance, and courage¿if she is to claim the life and love that can be hers. There is a lot of drama and suspense in this novel because I thought I had an idea on who murdered Eli's younger brother but by the end I found I was completely wrong. I also loved the chemistry that was going on between the female and male characters in the novel such as the heroine and hero Hallie and Eli but also between Pearl and Eli's uncle Hank. I enjoyed this book very much and I look forward to all of Dorothy Garlocks future novels.

    fans of Dorothy Garlock will enjoy her western romance

    In 1890 Whiskey Bend, Colorado, Chester Remnick beat up his stepsister Mary in public; none of the men intervened. Mary¿s friend Pearl Parsons warns Chester to stay away from her and his stepsister or she will use her rifle to convert him into a hen; she does shoot him in the leg. The two women and schoolteacher Hallie Wolcott decide to flee the brutality and abuse of the town.<BR/><BR/>A previous victim of abuse, Pearl vows to find a safe haven for her friends. A storm almost kills Mary, but she is rescued by a rancher Eli Morgan, who gives them shelter at his rundown spread while she heals over the objection of his malicious mother who knows the women mean trouble and wants them to leave. Outraged from the affront Chester is hunting the women with plans to take the friends to teach them a lesson and bring home his stepsister to take care of his shack. Eli has his own issues as his mom never forgave him for abandoning the family years ago and a need to find out who murdered his younger brother Caleb. As he and Hallie fall in love, neither are prepared for an unknown adversary who wants him dead.<BR/><BR/>Although intriguing with the premise of late nineteenth century abuse and with solid key characters, the romance fails to come across as realistic; as that and the climax seem abrupt. Still fans of Dorothy Garlock will enjoy her western romance as family issues threaten the lives of Eli and the three women he vows to protect. <BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Recycled plot

    I enjoy Ms. Garlock's stories, finding them beautifully written. But this one was so similar to "A Week From Sunday" I was really disappointed. The 2 lead characters fell in love so quickly, I thought I'd missed something, and the resolution at the end was very weak. This was disappointing because some areas of prose were some of Ms. Garlock's best - beautiful imagery, but an unbelievable plot - even for romantic fiction!

    Good enough to get from the library but I'd think twice before spending $6.99 for it. The characters are a little weak the story did not have a good flow. First story I've read from this writer. Not sure I'd go out of my way to look for one of her books.
