Ever since I read the teaser about Jess and Linc’s story that was at the end of The Other Side, the previous story in this series, I have been looking forward to reading Forever After All by Mandi Blake. Mandi always writes great characters that are easy to like and easy to root for. There is always a sweet romance, a good faith thread, and a bit of suspense that will keep you turning the pages.
I knew during the opening scene of this story that I was gonna like Jess! Her bold honesty is just so refreshing and at times hilarious. I liked the pops of humor, especially when it came from the characters thought processes. Linc’s past was unexpected and had me totally interested. I couldn’t wait to find out what his back story was! His comments and thoughts had me laughing out loud more than a few times. I also really enjoyed catching up with all of the previous characters through the bonus epilogue. Such a great addition to this series!
Forever After All is book 6 of the Wolf Creek Ranch series by Mandi Blake. I think each story can be read as a standalone, but after reading all of them, I would say it adds so much more to the reading experience to read them all in order! I’m looking forward to whatever Mandi Blake writes next!
*I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own. 4 stars. The faith thread was light.
