Rugged and beautiful are words that describe the High Desert region of Oregon, otherwise known as the Oregon Outback. Rugged and beautiful can also be used to describe the characters in the four novellas that make up this book.
Each story revolves around the romantic hardships of the Love brothers; Jonas the FBI agent, Carver the cattle rancher, Lucas who doesn’t want to grow up, and Justin the bounty hunter. Each is dealing with his own life issues when they find themselves falling for a female that will complicate things. In a couple of the stories the brothers are well acquainted with their eventual loves, which makes things harder, given past relationship failures.
All of the stories were enjoyable. As with all novellas, you have to remember that the author has just a little bit of time to get in all the details and background information, so in general that are not as in depth as a whole novel. The upside is they can provide entertainment for a short time and you are not stuck in the middle of a book you really want to finish. So Oregon Outback is perfect for this time of year when people are on vacation—quick, enjoyable stories without getting tied down in a lengthy novel.For more information and to read a chapter from this book-click here-or on the title above!
