A Cafe For Authors and Avid Readers
Lynx sets a warm, romantic tone for book one in Connie Vines’ Rodeo Romance Series. This is short, easy, lazy afternoon read. With strong characters like Lynx, Rachel, Dan and Charlene the Rodeo small town country environment breeds friendships, excitement, danger, attraction, reluctance and full blown passion.
As a reviewer I read many genres and this was my first Rodeo romance. To my surprise this short story and colorful characters kept me turning the pages and refilling my coffee cup.
The fact that Connie’s father is from Texas and she spent summers in the Texas panhandle as a child is interesting. Her father rode broncs in amateur rodeo events while in high school. I’d like to imagine that the Texas setting is probably is some ways kin to the author’s real home environment set in the “quirky suburbs of Southern California” where she lives with her husband “in a butter-yellow house shaded by mimosa and magnolia trees”.
Lynx is a romance with a couple of Texas recipes thrown in for extra spice. This first book in the Rodeo Romance Series was selected as the H.O.L.T Medallion Finalist and the Orange Rose Finalist. Only time will tell us where the series will go and how many hearts will be won or lost.
Theodocia McLean endorses Lynx (book one) in Connie Vines’ Rodeo Romance for the romantic and young at heart. This book was reviewed in September 2014.
