This was a great sequel to "Courting Trouble". I highly encourage you to read that book first, although reading this book can be done as a stand alone. To truly get to know Essie Spreckelmeyer, you should read both in the order written. Essie was a lady I had a hard time getting to know and appreciate, but as time went on, I liked her more and more.

Essie is an independent, outspoken, bicycle rider who owns her own bicycle business and is content with her being single. Along comes Tony Morgan, newly hired at Spreckelmeyer's oil company (and who has just been disinherited at the death of his oil baron father). Tony wants to regain his name and fortune, starting from the ground up. He is not interested in the headstrong, blond and bossy Essie.

These two are perfect for each other. They just don't know it yet. There will be a lot of twists and turns along the way for these two, but in the end, they will discover and cherish the love they will find in each other. It was quite a ride, but well worth the time. You will learn a lot about the oil business, the bicycles and bloomers era for women, and enjoy every minute. ( )

I'm so glad we got to revisit Essie and her family/town/life. An end to her story that completely satisfied and made me smile. (P.S. - my favorite line goes to Mrs. Lockhart when she meets Russ for the first time and looks him up and down. You'll have to discover it for yourself, but it literally made me laugh out loud.) :) ( )

I like Essie SO much more in this book, and the change seemed natural. I do like that Essie was going to be given a family even though she had embraced not receiving one. But the subplot of the lynchings was too much. And though I liked some of the ways that Tony was different and flawed, I felt like he changed unnaturally. I don't know, I didn't completely buy into the relationship. And the way that all the loose ends tied up, with his sister's marriage and the deputy being shot and implicated, and the killer having left and obvious trail, not to mention his older brother's demise to begin with, it was all just too easy. Too simply, too neatly wrapped up. ( )

Loved this book and its prequel! Essie is such fun, and I love that she finally finds what she is looking for :-) My favorite parts about both "Trouble" books is that the author stays away from the typical formula of characters keep secrets which build and build until the end when there is inevitably a blow up and break off of the relationship which in pretty much the last chapter gets tidily resolved. The kind of plot that makes you want to just smack the main character and yell "just tell them already!" In this book the author uses a much more realistic approach to how things would really work out, because people aren't really all that dense in real life. I recommend both of the "Trouble" books, and anything else by Deeanne Gist ( )

I kind of feel the same way about this book that I do about all of Deeanne Gist's books. I enjoy listening to them... but they border on the absurd and soap opera.

She puts her characters in these outlandish situations and then keeps throwing weird twists and plot angles. In themselves, none of this is bad or entirely unbelievable, but thrown altogether it just feels a little... over the top. Nonetheless, her romances are light-hearted and fun. ( )

When I saw you on your wheel, sweet Lenore
Oh my brain did never reel so before.
You were clad in knickerbocks
And you wore such brilliant sox
I could see ‘em twenty blocks, maybe more.

I but gave a passing glance, sweet Lenore
At the natty sawed-off pants which you wore,
Then the cruel ground I hit
I had fallen in a fit,
And I’ve not recovered yet, sweet Lenore.
