Under a Texas Sky based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.
I could not get into this book. For the amount of money it cost I was expecting a really good read. After finally finishing the book I wish I could return for a full refund. I will not buy anymore of Ms Garlock,s books because the last 3 or 4 books were not worth the money, but I just keep hoping they would improve, but I have finally given up
Very disappointed that I spent $30 on this book. Very predictable and not at all what I expected from Dorothy Garlock.
I have read every Dorothy Garlock book, and they are the best. However, this one was awful. Predictable, with an unsatisfying ending.
While this is better than "By Starlight", I was still left wanting more. Ms. Garlock did a good job of building the plot basics - most readers will be appropriately surprised by the twist - and the development of her main protagonists was better, it still felt a little off from her usual sparkling talent. Some of the minor characters that I would have enjoyed seeing some more of were left behind, and the villains felt cookie cutter. The ending left me disappointed. Turn to "Hope's Highway", "Mother Road", "The Listening Sky" for some true shining examples of Ms. Garlock's amazing writing!
Didn't like the book at all. I'm not sure if she has lost her touch or if she has someone else writing, but the last couple of books (including this one) aren't anywhere as good as her previous books. I'm not sure if I'll buy her next book.
Dorothy Garlock is paints an amazing textured world of the film industry in the 1930s. We are on location in a little Texas town where there is as much drama off set as one. Anne, our pull her self out of the gutter heroine, meets our blacksmith hero who has troubles of his own. Garlock's books are always poignant and richly detailed and this one is no different. If you what to be submerged into a unique historical moment, this is a great book for you. The romance here is compelling for as well. All the drama on the sides with villains and family takes away from the relationship a bit for me. The historical fiction is top notch. As a romance book, I am giving this book 3 stars. Its good but not great as historical fiction it deserves more. I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it.
