Miki's Hope Reviews - Miki Hope
This is the story of a family who moved to Minnesota from the Boston area back in the time of the civil war and Indian uprisings. It is the story of their everyday life--the ups and downs, the joys and the worries. It depicts how people stuck together and helped each other. When an Indian family shows up at their door with a very pregnant wife-she is helped-and a son is born. That act of kindness is repaid-how I will not tell you or I will give away part of the story! 5 STARS

    I don't often find myself in the mood to read a sweet romance. It takes an incredibly compelling story and group of characters to keep me engaged in this genre and that is exactly what this book delivered. I'm familiar with Ms. Diablo's steamier reads, but must admit that after reading "Sky Tinted Water" I can't wait to see what else she has in store. If you're looking for a story that takes you on the sweet and epic journey two people take to find and keep their love, then you will love this book. Nothing feels forced or rushed. The relationship between Rory and Dawson keeps you turning every page and sighing at the end of every chapter. This is a great beginning to what is sure to be a remarkable series.

    As you all likely know by now, I don’t really “do” erotica, so there’s always some modicum of hesitation on my part when one comes across my email. I love a book with a rich plot, and characters that I can relate to and believe in.

    Still, when this book came across my desk, I was eager to give it a try, and like a few others, it took great restraint to keep it in queue instead of bumping it right to the front. The book is described as a sweet historical romance. Now, not really being a fan of the romance genre, I wasn’t sure what that meant, but I was interested to find out. The very word historical, of course, immediately piqued my interest and the moment I could, I dove right in.

    I was not to be disappointed. Now, I’m a biblical history girl, with some Egyptian history, Roman history, and a huge chunk of European history tied in, so diving in to American, and Native American, history was fairly unfamiliar grounds for me. Being that I am American and had a vaguely truthful history of my country pounded into my head from a young age at school, I had some idea of what to expect.

    Bearing that in mind, I was very impressed. The characters were rich and full, immediately lovable and relatable. And yes, there were the typical romance scenes in the book, but this was so much more. I instantly loved the main character, Rory, and turned every page anxiously to see what was coming next. The story seemed very true to the times, and remembering the harsh reality of the civil war and the tribulations between the people who settled in the States and the Natives who were already here, there were moments when the story was heartbreaking and tough. But that’s one of the best parts of this book!

    As per usual, I don’t want to give too much detail or spoilers, because this book is so worth reading. I enjoyed every minute of it, and would not hesitate to pick up another of Keta Diablo’s books. I give this a firm five of five stars and urge you to give this book a try.

    Exactly what it promises and so much more!

    A dissonant shout jolted Rory Hudson awake. "Indians! Indians!"

    ... Is all it takes for Ms. Diablo to capture your attention and once she's got it she will not let go until you read the very last sentence. Set in the Midwest during the late 1800s, Sky Tinted Water follows young Rory Hudson as she heads West with her older sister's family, settles in and meets the young man that truly captivates her from the first time she lays eyes on him. Theirs is love at first sight even when all they have is a glimpse of each other and no names to fall back on. Follow Rory and Dawson as their love as it grows and is strengthened by time, tragedy and even war.

    To call this simply a Sweet Romance is not doing it justice. If you're not careful, Ms. Diablo will not only capture your attention, she'll capture your heart.

    Red Crown Review - 4.5 Stars - InD'Tale Magazine - March 28, 201

    Red Crown Review - 4.5 Stars - InD'Tale Magazine - March 28, 2013
    Rory Hudson made the long journey to Minnesota to settle down and start a new life. It was a troubled time, as the country was in a bloody Civil War and the Dakota Indians were uprising in Minnesota. Isabelle, Rory sister, has healing hands and helps bring children into the world with Rory there to help her, until the fateful day when she loses a mother in childbirth.

    The child’s father, Hiram, condemns Isabelle with his silence. From that day on he begins to badger Rory with his eerie ramblings.

    When Dawson Finch first laid eyes on the beautiful copper-haired Rory, he knew it was love at first sight. He builds a cabin in the woods for her and then proposes to her, and thus begins a beautiful life for the two of them. When they find out Rory is pregnant, it seems life can’t get any better. But Dawson feels the pull of loyalty to his country and decides to enlist and fight the Dakota.

    Will Rory be safe when Hiram decides to take advantage of Dawson’s absence? Keta Diablo takes the eternal love of a husband and wife and expertly weaves in the horror of war and death. Diablo helps the reader to understand the views of both the Americans and the Dakota Indians. Even though the story sometimes seems a little too predictable, the author paints characters that are sensitive to the plight of their neighbors as well as the Dakota Indians.

    This is truly a beautiful story that allows for compassion as well as enjoyment.
