Review of Garrett
Garrett – McKettricks of Texas
Linda Lael Miller
Garrett is the second in the McKettricks of Texas trilogy.
Garrett McKettrick is definitely a political animal being the go-to guy for Senator Cox and has always dreamed of a career in politics until a scandal makes him rethink his priorities. Blue River Texas is home for single mom Julie Remington and her aspirations are simple, everything she needs is right where she is, that is until the explosive attraction between her and Garrett reaches critical mass and threatens to detonate all her well thought plans.
The one thing we can always rely on Linda for is a great story and she does not disappoint with Garrett, she takes her readers on a larger than life adventure with larger than life characters who have larger than life problems. Her dialogue is full of Texas twang and mind your manners talk mixed with her unique brand of humor and tenderness. Her characters are like I said before larger than life, but also very down to earth, modest and oozing with charm. The supporting characters are a group of old friends, new acquaintances and a few enemies. The hero Garrett and heroine Julie have known each other forever, plus his brother is engaged to her sister so there is a certain amount of personal history that really adds to the romance, and what a romance it is so be prepared to turn down the air-conditioning while they tear up the sheets and yet you’ll be exposed to incredible tenderness too.
Come discover what they say is true, that everything is bigger in Texas, especially the romances. I also recommend Tate the first in the McKettricks of Texas series and look for Austin the third in the trilogy coming out soon.
