Reviews - What do customers think about Sean Donovan (The Californians, Book 3)?
Good story line, but lacking and unconvincing. Jan 28, 2006
The beginning of the story was very interesting and even a little suspenseful. However, as soon as Sean marries the woman who saves him from being hung, he suddenly seems to transform from an angry, rough guy to a perfect gentleman. I found that very unconvincing, and it just didn't seem to work with the first part of the story. The rest of the story was all right, but it didn't really seem like it was the same story anymore. The characters frequently "almost panic" or do double-takes over the littlest things. It was really pretty boring, and not worth reading after all. This is the only series of hers I've read, and the only good one was "Donovan's Daughter", the last book. I most likely won't try any of her other series, unless I'm desperate for something to read. I've found Wick to have a dull writing style.
entertaining, but not enough. May 17, 2005
This is a very well-intentioned but mediocrely-written book. While it was entertaining, and not nearly as painful to finish as some other books I have read, it was still a huge disappointment. The story is decent, but is written in a choppy style, jumping around with little bullets that are very unnecessary - simple transitionary sentences would suffice, but instead it comes off as having television show style scene changes. This book is filled with so many cheesy, sappy lines and narrations that I rolled my eyes so many times I thought they would fall out of my head. Just not realistic or intelligent enough for my tastes. If you have a few hours to kill with nothing better to do, then pick up this book, but if you are looking for a good book with substance, steer clear of this one!
One of the best books I've read in a long time! Nov 19, 2001
I am a big Lori Wick fan and Sean Donavon is one of her best. I just finished reading it and I wanted to read more about Sean and Charlie! Sean is a wonderful character that started out as a wild young man and grew into a sweet, sensitive Christian man. The characters were wonderful and the love story kept me turning the pages! A lot of adventure and romance to keep you reading.
NEW FOLLOWER Sep 17, 2001
WHILE I WAS ON VACATION IN BERMUDA I STUMBLED ONTO LORI'S BOOKS. I SPENT JUST ABOUT EVERY WAKING MOMENT READING THE FIRST 2 BOOKS AND WHEN I CAME HOME I ORDERED THE 3RD AND 4TH BOOK READ THE 3RD ONE IN 2 DAYS. I AM STILL WAITING FOR THE 4TH BOOK TO ARRIVE.
I LOVE THE WAY THAT LORI BROUGHT 2 STRANGERS TOGETHER SEAN AND CHARLIE AT FIRST AND THEN BY THE END OF THE BOOK THEY WERE WHERE GOD WANTED THEM AND DEEPLY IN LOVE. IT MAKES ME BELIEVE THAT WONDERFUL MARRIAGES DO EXIST ESPECIALLY WHEN GOD IS AT THE BASE OF IT.
A Good Read!! Jul 17, 2001
I'm a big fan of Lori Wick's novels. I highly recommend this one! It's a beautiful story. It really holds a lot of meaning. I love Christian fiction and Lori Wick really writes wonderful books. Don't miss this one.
