Smorgasbord Book Reviews – #Western #Romance – Silverhills by Sandra Cox

This is the second western romance that I have read and enjoyed by Sandra Cox and you can find my other review for Thundertree: Here

 

About the book

In the 1870s Brandon Wade is driving a herd of longhorns over the Chisholm Trail when a youth appears out of nowhere riding a magnificent black stallion and packing a deadly looking six-gun. In need of trail hands, Brandon hires the young man. Not until weeks later, during the middle of a terrible stampede, does Brandon learn that his young sharpshooter is a beautiful woman. A woman full of fire and passion who he burns to possess. A woman steeped in mystery who refuses to disclose her past. Alexandria O’Malley is on the run and must be able to disappear at a moment’s notice. When she hires on to the cattle drive, she doesn’t expect the powerful attraction between herself and her trail boss or the response of her treacherous body.

My review for the book 13th August 2020

This book is not just a western romance with plenty of action, but also a family saga stretching out over 50 years.

The story has all the elements of a good western with plenty of action, cowboys, Indians, stampedes, comancheros, magnificent horses, good looking men, beautiful feisty women and some snakes in the grass… Don’t expect too many simpering females as the young woman at the centre of this story can definitely hold her own, in the saddle, with cattle and when faced with danger.

The author draws you into a country that is perilous to the unwary and home to both natural and human predators, but she also showcases the magnificence of the wild open spaces. Her characters are multi-faceted and not all perfect, which makes the relationships that more realistic.

I loved the story, partly because I was brought up watching western movies, but also because it is a reminder of a simpler time, despite the dangers and violence. Without technology men and women survived through their own hard work and courage in a very tough environment, and that makes their stories compelling.

If you want to escape from the modern world for a few hours, then I can highly recommend Silverhills and I am looking to reading more of Sandra Cox’s stories in the future.

  1. I haven’t read a western for many many years. I used to love the movies too and I was a great fan of Zane Grey. My father had a collection of them, other writers too but Zane Grey is the only one I remember. This book sounds like great fun. Thanks for the review.
