Book Review: Dry Creek Sweethearts

Dry Creek Sweethearts by Janet Tronstad Love Inspired #439 Apr 08

I love this author’s sense of humour. This great book has a fun plot where a singing star who used to be the town bad boy, gets his bus mired in mud and ends up in the only café in town which happens to be a 50’s style replica. But the author doesn’t just stop there...the singer and the café owner used to be a hot item and that makes for a very interesting story when the rest of the Dry Creek residents decide to protect their own.

Linda Morgan fell in love with the town bad boy. It was only because of Duane’s financial support that she was able to buy the café that supported herself and her younger sister these past years. After Duane left town, a heartbroken Linda even went after him but when she realized he expected her to live on a bus with him, she came back to Dry Creek to run the café. Life on a tour bus was no life at all for her seven year old sister. Over the 7 yrs he’s been gone, Linda has come to realize Duane loved his career more than he ever loved her.

Duane has women following him all over the place, but he’s only proposed to one woman – Linda Morgan – and she turned him down. They could’ve gone so many places together but she chose to live in the hick town of Dry Creek, Montana rather than share his life.

Duane is physically sick and can barely talk. When he drives his tour bus into Dry Creek after a 7 yr absence, he doesn’t have re-acquainting himself with Linda on his mind. All he wants is peace and quiet and what better place than sleepy Dry Creek. Too bad he brought his manager along because the guy’s already talking about singing in the local church, press conferences and renewing an acquaintance with the girl he left behind – all for the tabloids, of course.

This was a fun book to read. Is it really true that stars don’t read their own fan mail? Gosh...
