REVIEW Tour for Black Creek Burning by R. T. Wolfe

 
R. T. will be awarding a $50 giftcard to either Amazon or BN, winner's choice, to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.
 
Brianna Chapman has learned to handle just about anything. Witnessing the murder of her parents had that effect. Knowing the unsolved arson had been meant for her is the one thing she can’t handle. Instead of dwelling, she stuffs her guilt soundly into her subconscious through diving into the teaching job she loves by day and the dirt of the landscaping business she owns by night. Her habit of remaining aloof to personal relationships is, well, working.

Will her guilt be as easy to keep buried if the killer comes back to finish the job?

In the midst of juggling a scorched yard, dead animals on her doorstep, and her vandalized car, the one thing she didn’t count on was the staggering Nathan Reed. A nationally renowned woodworking artist, Nathan and his two priceless nephews move into the run-down historical house behind her and over Black Creek. They have a canny way of maneuvering around her aloof demeanor and into her heart. Will they still want to be part of her life when they discover she is haunted by past memories and hunted by present dangers?


My Review:

So I'm not going to rehash the deets for you on this one ~ instead, I'm going to tell you that I had never heard of R.T. Wolfe, or Crimson Romance ~
but if this is the quality that Crimson is publishing, sign me up.  This book is exceptionally well written ~ it doesn't move at the fatest pace, but it's a good steady build, and the build up between the main characters, Brie & Nathan was SO great, and damned if I wasn't suspecting every person she knew of being behind all the terrible things going on.  Talk about red herrings! 
The relationships between the characters ~ Brie & her family, Nathan & his nephews, and his family ~ was a true pleasure to read.  This was just an all around great read. 

The editing was flawless, the writing is awesome, the suspense was GREAT ~ and I can't wait to read more from R.T Wolfe!

And P.S. ~~ there are SEQUELS, and they're about the NEPHEWS we get to know in this one!
OMG, I cannot WAIT, I'm already in love with these boys!  YES!!! 




AUTHOR Bio and Links:

R.T. Wolfe’s romantic suspense, Black Creek Burning, is the first in a series set in beautiful upstate New York. She enjoys creating diverse characters and twining them together in the midst of an intelligent mystery and a heart encompassing romance.

It’s not uncommon to find dark chocolate squares in R.T.’s candy dish, her Golden Retriever at her feet and a few caterpillars spinning their cocoons in their terrariums on her counters. R.T. loves her family, gardening, eagle-watching and can occasionally be found viewing a flyover of migrating whooping cranes.

Review from 2010 EPIC Award Winning Author, Laurie Larsen:

“I thoroughly enjoyed RT Wolfe’s masterful debut novel, Black Creek Burning. Written with confident expertise on a variety of topics such as landscaping and home remodeling, I got wrapped up in the engaging storytelling of this wonderful tale of love, danger and suspense. Along the way I completely fell in love with hero Nathan as he patiently transformed the heroine Brie from an icy self-proclaimed independent into a woman willing to accept the love of a strong man and a family in need of a mother. The details were delicious, the settings were masterfully painted, the mystery was a stumper and the romance was beautifully satisfying.

A top-rate romantic suspense from a talented promising new author. I hear rumors that this is the first book of a series, and I gleefully await the sequel.”

  13. Wow! What great synergy! Black Creek Burning may very well be an awesome book, but after reading this blog post I have an overwhelming desire to find out for myself! *smile* Mimmie should go into sales if she isn't currently. She does a beautiful job of painting an exciting picture of the storyline with rich, colorful details and passion. Makes me want the book in my hands NOW. - -le sigh- Kudos to K.T. for writing such a book and for representing Crimson so beautifully. You're making us ALL look good! Wishing you continued success, chick. Robyn Corum

    1. Robyn,
      I had a Master Gardener review the book for authenticity regarding the trees, plants and shrubs (since I am not from upstate New York). I have been incredibly fortunate with reviewers regarding authenticity on a number of topics. I am a research buff. :)

  18. Thanks for specifically mentioning the great editing in your review. As a reader (and an English major and librarian), one of my pet peeves is poor editing. I get very distracted by typos and grammatical errors and internal inconsistencies--simple things that good editing can prevent.
