Turner brings us back to Cabrillo & the world of Las Morenas without missing a beat.  Vibrant descriptions paint the world before your eyes.  Readers are transported back in time with this vivid tale.  Turner gives readers a look at both city and country life at the time and the stark difference between them.   At the same time, the plot thickens as more individuals become involved, some with a hidden agenda.  Turner develops it all with tact and a flair that will keep you coming back for more.  Her mellow writing style really allows the story to shine through.  The intensity and reality of the situations facing Turner’s characters is something that winds its way throughout the entire novel.  You can feel it as an undercurrent in absolutely everything that happens. Isabel was a fantastic lead character.  Despite the hardships she’s been through, it’s hard to feel pity for her.  She has such a fighting personality.  You just know she’ll end up back on top, on her own terms too.   Sebastian was an intriguing contradiction.  He was so many things all at once.  The harsh realities of Sebastian’s life moulded who he is, but not necessarily in the way that he believes.  Turner’s well rounded character development brought these two, along with the rest of the cast, to life in a vivid & realistic way.  I felt as if I’d travelled back in time to old California and actually met them.   This novel was a fantastic addition to Turner’s series. I couldn’t put it down for a moment and cannot wait to return to this fantastic world with the next story in the series. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

This story had all the elements you could wish for: a strong heroine who has been wronged, a hero who fights to be the best he can be but has also been wronged, the proud old California ranchos of Spain who were defeated by the justice system the hero serves as US Marshal.

Isabel thinks she has her life all mapped out until an attack changes her plans. Now she is focused on bringing her attackers to justice and there is only one person that can help her do that, Sebastian Spencer, a US Marshal. The book had me hooked from beginning to end, these two have gone through so much. The story is excellent and I enjoyed watching the relationship between Isabel and Sebastian grow. An emotional story that will keep you glued to your e-reader.

<i>Autumn Sage</i> is remarkably well done. Building on the world she created in Summer Chaparral, Turner expands the setting here to include Los Angeles. I loved the depiction of the city at the turn of the 20th century. It was a fascinating window in to a place and time we don't see very often in fiction.  Isabel is recovering from physically from the attack she suffered from an outlaw, but is having a more difficult time emotionally. This frustrates her because she doesn't like feeling out of control. Bringing the outlaw to justice is the only way she cans see to end her torment. Her journey through this book is a hard one and I liked how much it focused on the injustices that are inherent in our justice system and how they affect women. She is not a weepy woman. She does not appear terribly victimized. Her core of steel is not a strength when it comes to convincing a jury of men she has been wronged. Even though this takes place over 100 years ago, unfortunately not much has changed in this regard and Isabel is a depiction of this harsh reality. I appreciated how her struggle was highlighted. I loved everything about Isabel: her yearning to move on with her life, her frustration over being trapped where she is, her determination, and the incentive she takes. She is a girl who has learned how to break the rules by still appearing to follow all of them, and is owns who she is.  Sebastian is the very definition of tortured hero, and that usually drives me nuts. In this case, I like how Turner subverted that trope enough that his character worked for me. Yes, there were times I wanted to shake him and tell him to get over himself, but at the same time, I see how the circumstances do not really allow for that.  Isabel and Sebastian together are phenomenal. They have all the chemistry and heat required of a romance, but they also have great conversations. They talk about history, philosophy, and literature. (The allusions and references in this book are numerous.) They play chess. They write letters when they are apart. I felt like they really and truly KNEW each other by the end, which is not as common as it should be. This series started strong with the first book and is even better with this one. I have high hopes for the books that follow. (I'm REALLY looking forward to Franny's book and pretty much have been since her first scene in Summer Chaparral.)

After reading Summer Sage, the first in the Las Morenas series, I was thrilled to be asked to read and review this second book in the series. Once again Ms. Turner has created wonderful complicated characters that live in turn of the 20th century California. The love story of Sebastian and Isabel is one that is well worth reading. Both have suffered trauma and abuse in their lives and have more to overcome than most. The search for an outlaw, the avoidance of vigilante justice, a big trial and whether or not justice will finally be served are only part of the story. The underlying currents of family, heritage and tradition are abundant as Sebastian and Isabel fight their own demons, come to value one another and find a way to be together. The lead in to the next book in this series has me wanting to know more. I want to read about Isabel&rsquo;s ex-fianc&eacute; and how his life will turn out just as much as I want to know how Isabel and Catarina&rsquo;s younger sister will find her love. While reading this book I put down some of my thoughts about what I was reading: Educated smart writing So much depth and feeling &ndash; rich Lovely writing Movie/series material I will definitely read more of this author&rsquo;s books!
