Review – Rocky Mountain Miracle by Christine Feehan

Rocky Mountain MiracleChristmas is my favorite time of year and I love to read short stories and novellas set in the most wonderful time of the year.

From Goodreads: “When Cole Steele, a womanizer rumored to have killed his father, meets Maia Armstrong, a veterinarian rumored to practice magic, the sizzling romance could melt all the snow on his Wyoming ranch. And when an injured horse brings them together, Cole can’t help but believe that Maia casts spells on animals—and men. What else could explain the burning passion he feels for her and the thawing of his heart just in time for Christmas?”  

I really wanted to like Rocky Mountain Miracle.  But, if I’m being perfectly honest, it was a 1-star read for me until about 50% in.  The characters were clichéd (bad boy love interest, Mary Sue who just can’t resist him, bad guys who are cartoonish because they have no redeeming qualities).  The story itself was nothing really special.  And, surprisingly, the writing wasn’t quite working for me.  Which was unexpected because I’ve read Christine Feehan before and liked her writing.

After the mid-point, the story itself did pick up.  The characters became a little more believable.  And, I just relaxed and went with it.

Overall, I’d give this one 2.5/5 stars.  And, if you enjoy romance, it’s worth a shot.

Thank you to the publisher for providing an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
