Book Review of Cool Water
Written by Jeanne Harrell
Reviewer Cheri Mills
I have just finished reading a delightful romantic western story! Cool Water is a refreshing fiction by a veteran storyteller Jeanne Harrell. She has written this story as part of the Westerners Series and many of her stories have strong women characters.
In Cool Water, the strong woman character is Natalie Coleman who leads trail rides through Yosemite National Park. Her best friend is her sister Jenna who tries to tell Natalie how to live her life. Natalie quit her previous job as a Park Ranger after she dumped her cheating fiancé; she wanted a less stressful life.
But her life became stressful and complicated after a bear charged her horse on a trail ride. Another rider came out of the woods and the bear charged the new rider. Natalie diverted the bear’s attention with yelling and her horse turned and charged the bear. The bear had had enough. But the new rider was bucked off and hit his head on a rock. The doctor said Wes Evans had a concussion and needed rest—at Natalie’s cabin. A further complication was that Wes, a noted owl expert, had amnesia. I wanted Natalie and Wes to fall in love but that did not seem likely for this pair.
I would recommend this story to anyone who loves romance of unlikely personalities who are going through career and personal crises. Readers should love the western way of life—horses, owls, cabins in the woods, and fishing.
