Editorial Reviews

Persnickety Soup - Deedra Linder
An enjoyable summer escape to the Oregon Outback.  It is always a pleasure to visit places you've never been before, and Elizabeth Goddard has chosen a location not many writers have explored.  The unfamiliar, rugged setting makes the stories of the Love brothers all that much more interesting.  This one should definitely make your short list for summer vacation reading.
Irene's Christian Reviews - Irene Grove

I gave this book 5/5 stars. I thought for the length of the stories they were well-developed and interesting reads. I thought the intrigue and mystery that was in some of the stories was believable and made the stories move along quickly. If you are looking for an easy and quick read to escape into, these stories would be great.

An interesting collection of four short stories covering four brothers falling in love in Oregon under various circumstances. The action keeps you glued to the pages as the brothers conquer obstacles to not only win the hearts of the women they love but also keep them safe from harm. A great read for all who enjoy the romance genre or those looking to get into this genre.

Elizabeth Goddard in her new book, “Oregon Outback” another in the Romancing America series published by Barbour Publishing Inc. gives us four stories, each one about a different Love brother in modern-day Oregon. From the back cover: Love is in danger on harsh terrain Four modern thrill-seeking, justice-loving brothers risk their lives to protect the women they love in the rocky landscape of the Oregon Outback. After a deadly tragedy, FBI agent Jonas Love abandons his career and heads back home to Oregon. Will doing so put him and his old love, Darcy Nichols, in danger? The cattle of rancher Carver Love are missing. Is this the perfect excuse to seek out Sheriff Sheridan Hall, A woman determined to show Carver she’s worthy of her title? Thrill-seeker Lucas Love, owner of an ATV business, is fearless until he meets his beautiful new bookkeeper, Avery Summers. Is he brave enough to pursue a woman who shakes his very foundation? Running from his past, a restless Justin Love is tracking a fugitive who’s bringing him far too close to home. Will Justin be able to get out quickly? Or will he find a reason to stay near Darrow Kincaid, a woman with marriage-to another man-on her mind? Will God give these men the necessary armor to face a myriad of dangers in love and life? Four stories about four different brothers whose last name is “Love”. So, obviously, that makes these stories love stories. Okay, bad pun, I couldn’t help it, however, it is true, each of these stories is a romance. Each of these stories is also an action-adventure that will keep you turning pages. “Oregon Outback” is great fun to read. Prior to this I had never heard of the Oregon Outback but Ms. Goddard does such a great job with her descriptions it makes you want to go and visit, rent an ATV from Lucas and go exploring. Ms. Goddard has a great way of telling each story and moving them along at a nice pace. Her characters are wonderful and she gives them life and unique voices. I liked this book a lot.

This book contains four love stories that are fun and intersting to read. I only wish the author would have delved into each of their pasts a little more. She hints at different life events that greatly affect each of the characters, but she never really takes the time to explain exactly what hapened to them. I really think it would have helped te reader better understand te chara cter and their mtivations better if it would have been better explained. Other than that, I really enjoyed te book and the adventures.

Another book in the Romancing America line. This book tells the stories of four brothers Jonas,Carver,Lucas and Justin Love. We start out with Jonas who has returned to Oregon to decompress after having a FBI operation go terribly wrong. He hopes to restart a romance with his high school flame Darcy. Carver is a rancher and his cattle have been stolen. Sheriff Sheridan wants to help but they don’t get alone very well. Will Carver’s heart get stolen as well? Lucas is a thrill seeker and plans to never marry and get tied down. Along comes Sierra who not only start to put his books in order but may also steal this forever bachelors heart. The book ends with Justin a bounty hunter back in Oregon to hunt his next criminal. He stays at a lodge owned by Darrow who happens to be the criminals sister. Will love find its way into the hunt? This book was okay but I did not like it as much as some other books I have read in this line. What I liked: I liked that the story followed a family of brothers. They where all interesting characters. The ladies I liked as well. Each of the story lines where good and even though they where shorter stories the suspense was good considering there was not as much time to develop. The third story about Lucas and Sierra was my favorite of the four. What I did not like: I know these are short stories and so the plot has to be condensed quite a but I am not real big on the whole falling in love with in days. The first story was not so bad as they had know each other 10 years before but it was kind of weak at best. A few weeks did pass in the last two stories but again it was just not as exciting and left me going that’s it? The stories where well written but the romance was just not as good as I had hoped for.
