I had a wonderful time savoring this story. Garrett was an interesting hero, though he was a bit naive thinking the best of people he admired and not seeing their foibles. However, none of us are omnipotent and he has a good heart. It was enlightening to see how his eyes were opened and how he responded to the different situations one they were. Our heroine Julie although she was attracted to Garrett was deliberate in her choice in pursuing a relationship with him. She is thinking of two things: She has a child to consider and he probably will be moving on. Is it enough to just live in the moment? The story was just the right mix of family interactions, romance and a little bit of danger and intrigue.

This was an interesting read for me because I did not care for the lead female character Julie. I cannot in good conscience call her the heroine. I found her annoying, a worry wart, and over protective of her child. One minute she's prim and proper the next her inner slut erupts, which came across as bi-polar to me. I could not figure out why Garrett would be interested in her, looks aside. I did enjoy the family theme and the concept of the McKettricks. Since this is the first book in this series I have read my curisoity about the family demands I give another in the series a try. Hopefully I won't be disappointed as I was with this book.

Only the slight breeze that whistled through the drafts of the Warriors' Den distured the silence. Tabbypelt had his tail curled around Mintkit like a snake; except it was a warm, comforting squeeze, not one a foul reptile would use to choke its prey. One simple question lingered in her mind- *Why /does/ Flowerkit hate me? I've only been living for maybe a moon, her even less. What have I done wrong?* <br> The next few minutes were filled with thoughts and theories brewing like a medicine in the back of Mintkit's brain. But none made sense. Winterberry stalked in the almost-empty den as quiet as a dead mouse. Only when she cleared her throat to speak did Mintkit notice her mother was there. <br> "As expected," she began with a sigh, sounding as downcast as the weather outside, "Lightstar didn't like the news. He called for your apprenticeship ceremony to be delayed." Mintkit sighed inwardly. She knew it was coming. <br> "I need some alone time," was all she said before running out of the den wordlessly, ignoring the glances her parents exchanged. <p> She scanned the clearing with wide, minty green eyes. <br> *Definately not the Nursery while Flowerkit, Featherkit, and Ashkit are still there... I just came from the Warriors' Den. The Apprentices' Den? Nah, the 'Paws are just about to get back from training. The Elders' Den is occupied by an always-grumpy Jumpflare, and of course not Lightstar's den.* Her stare shifted to the tunnel at the back of camp and almost gagged at the thought. *I guess the Dirtplace is the only place to go...* Making sure no cat was already in there, she hesitantly made her way over to the stench-ridden Dirtplace. Mintkit stood by the entrence, bracing herself. *1... 2... 3...* She trotted all the way in, trying to block out the nose-killing scents. Mintkit finally made her way to the back corner; that section seemed to be the main culprit of the smell, but there it was dim and quiet. <p> Completely quiet. <p> She felt like she should do something. Cry, maybe. Brainstorm unlikely ideas about why Flowerkit would've framed her. Throw a hissy fit, like a senseless kit. But she just took in the peacefullness, the silence. It felt good to get away from the busy camp. <p> A few more minutes of bliss. Until Mintkit heard Winterberry call her name. <p> She abruptly stood up, but banged her head on the dirt roof. Wincing, she squinted her eyes so the few sprinks of falling earth wouldn't get in her eyes, and cotinued on her way out. But Mintkit was soon to stop in her tracks. Falling earth. She padded back to where she had hit her head and pawed at the roof. Sure enough, it was then weak enough so that more and more earth came raining down. <br> *Wouldn't outside be a nice place to explore?* The thought drove her on, until a beam of light shone overhead. She drove her muddy paws throught it and made the hole bigger and bigger, until a cat the size of her could get through. Squeezing her small body through the hole, Mintkit ignored Winterberry's calls, which were growing deeper with anxiety, until she was all the way out. <br> Mintkit was greeted with trees. <br> Streams. <br> Scents of prey. <br> Plants. <br> And she knew she was officially outside of camp. <p> (Thanks for all the encouraging comments! Be sure to keep checking the the Novellas at 'superstar'!) <p> -&#1071|Reflections&#9830

I read all of her Nook books and thought they were all good. Love how the series includes updates and the people from the other books in the series.

This book gives defintion to the phrase " ALL AMERICAN COWBOY!" Garrett is a man who holds on to his values, and his manners that were taught to him by his parents. He is that man with that tough exterior, but is all heart and soul on the inside. Julie is a women who works hard to be a wonderful mother and teacher. Not to mention she tends to be the level headed of all the three sisters. I love her son Calvin. The story of how they all come together is surely one to remeber. So sit back, relax, and get lost in the wonderful world of the McKettrick brothers!
