Book Review: A Hard Ride Home by Emory Vargas

It's hard enough returning to his birthplace to replace a dead man as sheriff. The last thing Emmett needs is to find himself smitten with Jesse, the whore he arrests almost immediately upon arrival. Especially since Jesse works for his half-sister and at her thoroughly disreputable saloon.

But being smitten with a whore is only the beginning of Emmett's troubles. Silver Creek is a town full of secrets and people too terrified to talk. Why does Emmett's father, the mayor of Silver Creek, have such a strong hold on the town—and on Jesse?

This book had a lot of potential, but for some strange reason it just fell flat for me. The writing was great and the overall premise was interesting, but I just didn't feel a connection with the characters. There was a lot of angst, so I definitely went through a roller coaster of emotions, both good and bad. All in all, this was a good book. Unfortunately, it just didn't resonate with me.

2.5 stars
