I *heart* me some Tat. Love me some Kate. And think Luke be the bee's knees. Overall, an enjoyable summertime read.
OK, I'm only giving this 2 stars and that's being generous because I really didn't like it. I am giving it 2 stars though because there was something in it compelling enough for me to finish reading it. I was in the mood for some romance but not like this. This was pretty corny writing that read like a bad romance novel. I don't think I've ever read any of Garlock's books and based on this one I don't think I will be reading anymore. Started out promising and, Kate, the main character is extreme [...]
Train From Marietta is such a special book to me. I have read it twice and highly recommend it to all who love a great love story. It hits close to home for me since I went to school one semester at Sul Ross State University in Alpine and attended the 1st ever parade in Fort Davis, TX. I've always called this land "God's country." Dorothy Garlock has a wonderful way of telling a story that is so true to the time and era in which the book is set. She is a true Americana Author. 5 stars for this w [...]
Train From Marietta by Dorothy Garlock is story of adventure in Texas and romance in the 1930s. When Kate plans to take the train from New York to California to practice medicine with her uncle, little did she know that she would be kidnapped along the way and her plans would change when she finds romance. Dorothy Garlock is one of my favorite authors and this book did not let me down. I love how she can tell the story in such a way that it makes me feel as though I’m right there or watching a [...]
I've read this book before but barely remembered it so I decided to read it again. I think that I loved this book alot more the second time. The story itself is interesting and Luke always cracked me up. The way that he is straightforward with what he askes and makes Kate and Tate explain what certain things are makes me laugh. This is definitely a book to read if you want a great cowboy-1930's book.
I bought this at Books-A-Million for $4.00 and it was one of the best buys I made that day. I will have to aquire more of this lady's books. I just love the way she tells a story and to set this book in the 1930's depression era was fantastic. Great character development. Jusst really like the way this laady writes
A delightful book set in the 1930s with a feeling of the time and characters to match. This one is set in the West with a kidnap, evil kidnappers, a bright Indian boy, a spunky female and a good, strong rancher to the rescue.Dorothy Garlock does not disappoint.
Some exciting parts, but the romance stuff got in the way for me. I think the author is a good writer, but just not my favorite style.
This is not something I would normally read, but my Mom leant it to me and I had nothing else to read since I was waiting for my ILL books to arrive. . .
WOW - Another great book by Dorothy Garlock
A surprising story that takes a NY City girl right out of the East and plops her down in the Mid-South.a really good read.
66 series has more soul but this was fun
3.5 starsI really liked this one. Not much in the way of romance, just a gradual build up of feelings Then of course a HEA
An enjoyable book to the very last page. What will become of Kate Tyler who is kidnapped on her way to California? And then there's the bad guy who is really a good guy?
Another good Dorothy Garlock book, this one set in the 1930s.
3.5 out of 5 stars
So refreshing from some of the other Garlock bookse dynamic was changed just slightly, but still made for a nice change!
This is the only book by Ms. Garlock that I have not enjoyed to-date. Too many stereotypes. Will continue to read her books despite this situation.
This book reminded me of The Outlander (a book I really enjoyed), but the story was less complex and not as well written.
