RT Rating

The tale of Austin McKettrick, the youngest brother, brings this trilogy to a close. And while it’s completely predictable, it’s also completely wonderful. Austin’s interactions with Paige are fun and lively and the mystery that began in Tate’s story ends with Austin’s love story and adds quite a suspenseful punch.

Paige Remington is going through a rough patch. She’s the bridesmaid in her sisters’ dual ceremony — and having nightmares about her ugly dress. She’s temporarily unemployed and her house is being renovated. When Austin comes home after conquering the bull that almost killed him, she’s forced
to play nice with the man that broke her heart. Then when Austin is shot, she’s hired by his brothers to be his nurse.

Austin McKettrick is forced to face some serious decisions. His livelihood is killing him and now that he’s beaten Buzzsaw he doesn’t have anything left to prove. That is, until he heads home and sees Paige Remington. He’s still in love with her and now he does have something to prove — that his word and his love for her are real. (HQN, Jul., 384 pp., $7.99)

McKettricks Of Texas: Austin

Rodeo champion Austin McKettrick is forced to give up the rodeo life when he's injured. Now that his career is over Austin doesn't know what to do. His brothers hire Paige Remington to be his private nurse. Austin and Paige have a history. He cheated on her in High School so she could go to nursing school and he rodeo. Now he's falling back in love with Paige, but she's afraid of getting hurt again, but in the close quarters of the Silver Spur, they can't seem to stay away from eachother.

This book wasn't as good as the other two. It seem to me to be over long. I just wanted Austin and Paige to get on with it. There didn't seem to be the same danger that were in the other two books.

The pace of the book was a bit slow. That was because Austin had a lot of groveling to do. He broke Paige Remington's heart as a young woman. I have to admit I enjoyed his suffering.

I loved the family elements in this book. These characters were bought to life with all their various foibles.

And yes we finally get to have the mysterious occurrences solved that were happening on the ranch.

Overall, it was a satisfying conclusion to this part of the Mckettricks saga.
