    1. There are a lot of good books to choose from these days, but not many intrigue me as much as this one managed to do. The story started out a bit slow, but once the foundation was laid the plot grabbed me I couldn't stop reading. The characters were realistic and the conflict was palpable. And romantic tension? This book was loaded with it as well as convincing inner dialog that showed how the mind and heart are often affected by the pastd not often in good way. I appreciated how there were more [...]

    4. An eerie sensation stole over me in the opening pages of Winds Over Marshdale, which I'm sure was the intent of author Tracy Krauss in this tale of fresh starts and the unseen spiritual forces at work in the lives of a small town community on the Canadian plains.

And I couldn't wait to read more.While not a true suspense, elements of the story are very suspenseful, while bei [...]

    10. To be honest, I didn't know what to expect when I turned on my nookcolor because I did not read the "back cover copy." I find I do that most often when I know that I'm going to read the book no matter what it might say. Having read Play it Again by Tracy earlier this year, I knew her characters would engage me, but I had no idea they would be the end all and be all as to why I would stay enthralled.Their struggles and their passions, their confusions and agonies about loves and losses and faith [...]

    11. Author Tracy Krauss has crafted a marvelous romantic thriller with a variety of themes interwoven seamlessly.

    13. I struggled with writing a review for this book. I had a problem with the Christians in the book drinking and found it very true that because of their drinking it led to strong sexual temptation. What was very difficult for me was the pastor in this book. I don't want to write a spoiler but for him to be caught in a serious secret sin it was a big problem for me. Yes, I do realize that Pastors do fall in sin in real life but do we need to read about that in fiction. This is not a book I could gi [...]

    14. This is my first time reading anything by Tracy Krauss and I enjoyed it very much. I loved this book from beginning to the end and there is several characters to keep up with but its not too hard to remember who is who. This takes place in a small town where everyone knows your business and of course there is drama in this small town. This is a Christian book so there is mention of God and religion all the way through it (which I love because I only read Christian books)Please note: I received a [...]

    15. This was my first Tracy Krauss book and it will not be my last. There were several characters to keep track of, but I did not forget any of them and was able to keep up with the story. There was a lot of life and problems happening in this story. Wasn't sure how everything would get resolved. There was a few questions that I had about what happened to some of the characters. Not sure if there is a sequel planned or not.

    17. This is not the type of book I would normally read at all - too much romance for me! However, I read the book after a recommendation from its author, Tracy Krauss, while we were having a discussion about Christianity and its interaction with indigenous cultures in relation to my own novel, Redeeming Brother Murrihy: The River To Hiruharama. In reading the book, I could appreciate the author's inclusion of this theme, one of many she includes in this tale of events in a small western Canadian tow [...]

    26. I really enjoyed this book! I think this was because Rachel Bosworth was such a relateable character.
