Book Review: Heartbroke Bay

 Heartbroke Bay by Lynn D'Urso

I'm just going to lay this out there - this was a weird book. I initially picked it up for the engaging cover and the blurb from Nevada Barr on the front, though I was skeptical of the story...

It's 1898, and Hannah has impulsively married Hans as they travel towards Seattle on a train ride. From there, they travel to Alaska to try and capitalize on the "gold rush", and of course, things begin to go awry when they partner up with several other men and strike out on their own...

While I liked the "man vs. wild", pioneering aspect, the story just seemed to drag and drag until the "big thing" that you knew was going to happen to bring the story to a head. While based on a true story, and well written, I just didn't *enjoy* this story - by the end, I wanted to kick all their asses, ya know?

I don't reget reading something outside my normal "range", but this one wasn't the winner I was hoping for...
