After skimming through my many ebooks on my Kindle, I came across one the sounded interesting. The last book I read was about a cowboy, so a book a bout a man in Dakota seemed like a decent next book. Her Dakota Man by Lisa Mondello I got for free from one of the emails I receive daily about free and discounted ebooks.
I have to admit, I read way more books now that I have many just sitting in one device and I can take with me practically anywhere. My Kindle Paperwhite is a convenient device that is light and goes everywhere with me!
Her Dakota Man by Lisa Mondello starts off with a young woman, Poppy Erickson, visiting her old stomping grounds, a place she grew up, literally the home she lived in. Her best friends had married and bought her family’s old home. After a huge flood coming into town, Poppy returns from her city life in New York to help with cleanup as well as rekindle her friendship with her old flame and best friend, Logan McKinnon. Logan’s wife passed away the previous year and kept big secrets from now single dad, Logan, and from her best friend, Poppy.
This book develops characters and the settings with enough details to leave me, the reader, like I was right there with the characters. The storyline builds up with good timing. I felt myself sensing the emotions of the storyline from being skeptical to anger, hopeful to disappointed, confusion to loving.
Overall, a good book that can be read quickly. This light story is perfect to get your mind off the daily grind and sneak you to another place for a couple hours.
