Lori Wick has done it again with a fantastic book which will have you entranced in the adventure and romance in Montana in From cover to cover, you will love visiting Token Creek and meeting its residents. This is book one in the Big Sky Dreams series, and I can hardly wait until book two comes out. Take me back to Token Creek, Montana; it's a place I would love to visit again and again. There is never a dull moment, and the characters come to life upon the pages.
Wick is a decent writer, but this is far from her best effort. Mar 01, Diane rated it liked it. Page 43 Talking about hungering after righteousness: He's no longer hungry. He's satisfied and not willing to search. But a starved man will eat [anything]. He's seeking he's hungry. Have you ever noticed how fragile spiritual hunger is? One little delight and we're good for a while.

Content in Him certainly. Content in who He is, and in the way He provides for our every need, but not satisfied. Not feeling so full that we no longer crave the knowledge and presence of God. If I'm yawning, you're going to rightly assume that I'm tired or bored. Watching me might even make you feel tired. However, if I'm gasping you're going to get a little excited yourself and want to know what's going on. You won't be the least bit bored and tired.
You're going to want to know what I'm excited about. It will be just as contagious. What was your latest response to God's word? A gasp or a yawn? Have you begun to yawn when [you hear someone talk about the gospel]? A gasp or a yawn, we choose, don't we? Jun 08, Carly rated it it was ok. I'm a big fan of Lori Wick.
I own and have read and reread many of her books.

But this one disappointed me. It was choppy and hard to connect with any of the characters because it jumped around so often. Sloooooow and so meticulous on so many details I really didn't care about and not enough on the stuff I did. Feb 04, Victoria Lynn rated it did not like it. This book was not very good. The storyline was extremely slow and was so bad that the book appeared to have little to no plot.
The characters were blah, and I couldn't really read it because the POV was terrible. The story swapped heads so many times in such confusing ways that I couldn't even finish it. I was surprised because I have heard such good things of Lori Wick. I will have to read something else by her, but this one fell short.

Sep 21, Kristy rated it liked it Shelves: I loved that I was a little unsure who she would end up with but eventually it is obvious. I wouldn't say it is Lori Wick's best work but it did its duty of being an enjoyable story to listen to.
It was an enjoyable audio book to listen to Writing Style?: Sometimes it was a little too cheesy as I fake gagged in the 'oh love is so perfect' moments. It also moved around to focus o Rating: It also moved around to focus on different characters within a chapter which at first I found confusing but I got used to easily. I loved listening to the sermons and the character's faith in works Clean?: Yes Read it again?: Nah Would I Recommend it: Not the best Christian fiction out there but it was good enough for my audio book needs Jul 24, Hanna rated it it was ok Shelves: This book described in one word: Now let's get to the specifics.
The main problem with them was that they weren't developed enough. That was the fault of the other aspects--to be mentioned Trace was fine. Rylan was pretty good. Cassidy could have had a unique and endearing personality, had it been actually shown more, and not told. I actually really liked Abi's storyline, but I sure had a lot of questions regarding her past, and even present.
She didn't seem to be married, This book described in one word: She didn't seem to be married, or have any family at all. But what does she do to earn a living? Writing a book that's not giving you any money yet? C'mon, this is Montana. If you're living out west, there's got to be a reason for it. You don't just live somewhere, without any means of support. Anyway, about the other characters They were a pretty good supporting couple. They focused on some of the weirdest things sometimes, like maybe you shouldn't try to discipline a two-month-old but overall, they were nice.
I was honestly disappointed how Brad and Trace's mother's story ended. It just kind of disappeared into nothingness. It wasn't even addressed with hope at the end. When I finished the book, I even forgot about the whole problem. Jeanette was a nice woman; she may have been the most developed character, although her character is not the type to stick in one's mind.
I liked Chandler, too, and was disappointed with the way his story ended. Even the villain fell flat. He could have been a fine bad guy, I suppose, but his sinisterness I think, though, that this flatness, and all of the characters' flatness, can be blamed on the writing style. The writing in this book had a little bit of everything--info-dumping, head-hopping, stilted writing, way and I mean WAY too much dialogue To me, the writing was boring, dry, slow, and uninformative.
It didn't drag me in at all; I felt no suspense, and was not connected emotionally to any character. The attempt to keep Cassidy's past hidden didn't make me care. There weren't enough hints to make me wonder. Much of the dialogue--scratch that, most of the dialogue--was completely unnecessary. Half, it seemed, of what the characters said was "How are you? Some of their speech also seemed inaccurate for the time period. Then there were the sermons and Bible studies But when it really doesn't have anything to do with the plot, and you don't see the characters' new knowledge in action, I don't see the point.
Put a sermon in when it causes a profound change in someone's life, not when all it does is lead to more unnecessary dialogue among the congregation. I could probably say more about the writing, but that's probably sufficient. And I can't remember anything more specific, anyway. It could have been good, had the writing conveyed the seriousness of it.
Part of the problem, I think, was that Cassidy wasn't really concerned. Therefore, I didn't think I should worry over it, either. Plus, I was a little confused as to why Cassidy wouldn't go to the sheriff. If Edson was really doing illegal things it was told to me, but I didn't actually see anything illegal happen, save for the attempted murder , then maybe Cassidy should have reported it. But no, she'll just let Edson leave, and go to another unsuspecting town. Go bother someone else, why don't you? So there was that aspect of the plot.
Then there was the romance. I'm not sure if there was a romance I cared about less.
Through all that unnecessary dialogue, I couldn't tell if they were in love, or just friendly. Chandler and Trace thought Cassidy might have had feelings for them Maybe that was the point. But that's not a good idea, because I don't see any romance development. Suddenly, they're smiling at each other like they've been doing it all along. It's a step above insta-love, but I wouldn't have known it existed, if I hadn't been told. But I was told. There's something I forgot in the writing paragraph--so much telling, barely any showing Setting: The setting practically wasn't there at all, save for the back of the book.
It had to tell me it was set in Montana, , because if not? I wouldn't have a clue. The town, scenery, etc. The characters' speech didn't have even a hint of western accent. As I said, there were a few times where they didn't quite speak style words And I don't think the characters' quite knew how to court style, either. Let's just talk and talk, but nothing really important regarding marriage. We just know that we need to get married, we don't need to clarify anything.
If I was anyone else, this would have been a DNF. I did want to know, though, if the ending would make some things more interesting. But that ever-important epilogue--we gotta have that. How could the story end if we didn't know that Cassidy is probably pregnant, because guess what? People had babies back then.
Cassidy (Big Sky Dreams, Book 1)
Anyway, I was supposed to be wrapping up this review. I don't recommend this book to anyone. I'm not even sure if I want to read the other books in this series, even though my sister says the one book is better. It was just so dry Mar 23, Robin rated it liked it Shelves: I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even if there wasn't a lot of "action" in the beginning. You learned a lot about the characters of the book during this time which has a lot to with the end of the plot. I am also used to Lori's writing style which made it a lot easier for me to read the book.
There could have been more interaction between Cassidy and her brother though. I think this would have helped the view on her brother.

We also didn't know much about Cassidy's childhood other than a few mino I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even if there wasn't a lot of "action" in the beginning. We also didn't know much about Cassidy's childhood other than a few minor details, I think a few more memories of her and her brother growing up would have helped class their relationship better. Apr 26, Tamara Tilley rated it liked it Shelves: With her growing business, friends, and church family, she feels her life is full.
Though she's had a difficult past, and few people know about her family, she feels richly blessed. But once in a while, it's nice to read a book that has a relaxed pace to it. Feb 05, Margaret Chind rated it liked it Recommends it for: The overall story of Cassidy was very romantic and contained some good action and suspense and I liked it. I did not like it as much as some other Lori Wick books I have read however. There was an awkwardness in the writing that I did not understand, every so often it would say "that lady" instead of "she" and it always made me stop and pause losing where I was because it stood out so much.
I do look forward to reading Sabrina soon. View all 5 comments. Mar 03, Jen rated it liked it. I enjoyed this easy, light read. It was a cute pioneer story taking place in the s. It is by a Christian author, so be prepared for a lot of bible references and characters strongly influenced by their faith. It's always good to read a book you know will be clean, and even inspiring. This is book one in a series.
Dec 25, Angie H rated it really liked it Shelves: Need to read the rest of the series now. View all 3 comments. Aug 21, Julie Graves rated it really liked it Shelves: I thought the romance in this one was a bit out of left field. I mean I liked Cassidy and Trace as a couple, but we had no warm up to their couple-ness. I guess it came upon the reader as it came upon Cassidy and Trace, by surprise!
Otherwise I really liked this story and Cassidy was a sweet girl who had wonderful morals. Especially when it came to not gossiping about other people. The author does tend to preach in her books, but always short "sermons" that lead the characters to make better choices in their lives and point them towards a more perfect relationship with the Savior.
If you are looking for passionate kisses in this one don't count on it! Sweet pecks here and there and some longing looks, but that is as far as the physical goes.
