Reviews - What do customers think about Dry Creek Sweethearts (Dry Creek Series #12) (Love Inspired #439)?
This is a great reunion book. Jan 13, 2009
I love this author's sense of humour. This great book has a fun plot where a singing star who used to be the town bad boy, gets his bus mired in mud and ends up in the only café in town which happens to be a 50's style replica. But the author doesn't just stop there...the singer and the café owner used to be a hot item and that makes for a very interesting story when the rest of the Dry Creek residents decide to protect their own.
Linda Morgan fell in love with the town bad boy. It was only because of Duane's financial support that she was able to buy the café that supported herself and her younger sister these past years. After Duane left town, a heartbroken Linda even went after him but when she realized he expected her to live on a bus with him, she came back to Dry Creek to run the café. Life on a tour bus was no life at all for her seven year old sister. Over the 7 yrs he's been gone, Linda has come to realize Duane loved his career more than he ever loved her.
Duane has women following him all over the place, but he's only proposed to one woman - Linda Morgan - and she turned him down. They could've gone so many places together but she chose to live in the hick town of Dry Creek, Montana rather than share his life.
Duane is physically sick and can barely talk. When he drives his tour bus into Dry Creek after a 7 yr absence, he doesn't have re-acquainting himself with Linda on his mind. All he wants is peace and quiet and what better place than sleepy Dry Creek. Too bad he brought his manager along because the guy's already talking about singing in the local church, press conferences and renewing an acquaintance with the girl he left behind - all for the tabloids, of course.
This was a fun book to read. Is it really true that stars don't read their own fan mail? Gosh...
I Couldn't Finish It. Dec 26, 2008
At about page 100, I had to put down the book and stop reading it. It was corny and not well written. Too much telling and not enough tension or action between the main characters. This far into the book, I didn't have much hope left for that changing. Maybe it was just thus book; hopefully all of hers aren't like this one. Even a really great writer, can write a bad one now and again, so I will give her at least one more chance.
December 28th, 2008 Update:
I couldn't get into this book, but I still had another one of the Dry Creek Series on my bookshelf, by the same author, I needed to read. Since this one was the first I've read of hers, I thought I give her another chance, for I know we all can write a bad book, now and then, amongst the good ones. I started to read, Sugar Plums for Dry Creek, and right away I liked it. I'm more then halfway though and I love it. Well written, great story line and loveable characters. Also, a lot of humor.
Moral of the story...always give an author a second chance.
Hollywood comes home Sep 5, 2008
Awesome book! I loved it so much I read the whole book in less than 2 hours. It made me laugh and cry. Tronstad allows you to look into the hearts and minds of each character. This is a book I could read over and over. If you like Nicholas Spark's writing style you'll love her and especially this book. Would make a great movie!!!
Great Characters Jul 15, 2008
I love Janet Tronstad's writing. I love her characters and Dry Creek Sweethearts didn't dissapoint me.
Small town cafe owner Linda Morgan and teen pop star Duane Enger are totally engaging and likeable. The author has a talent for getting into the head of a celebrity character and making his ordinary thoughs believable, as well as his deepest longings. I loved the way one of the themes of the novel revolved around a Silvertone guitar. The book is current, and will interest readers from 16 - 116.
