Book Review: Creed’s Honor

Creed’s Honor by Linda Lael Miller. (website)

I devoured A Creed in Stone Creek, so when I saw that there was another Creed book being released, I couldn’t resist. This novel follows Steven Creed’s cousin, Conner, in the town of Lonesome Bend, Colorado. He’s stayed close to home, working the ranch for his uncle and being the dependable one, unlike his twin. He thought he had just about everything he needed, until he met Tricia McCall.

Tricia was trying to sell her family’s land, a dilapidated old drive-inn movie theatre and a lodge, with little success. All she wanted was to sell up and go back to the city. But fate has a way of changing things… especially once she re-introduces herself to Conner Creed.

Overall I found the book good, but it started a bit slow. I had to urge myself to continue, knowing that it would get better. Something about A Creed in Stone Creek snagged me straight away, but Creed’s Honor took a chapter or two. However, patience paid off. Other readers might not have that same problem – sometimes I’m just not in the mood for certain types of books.

My interest lay not only in seeing if Tricia and Conner would make it, but also whether Conner and his twin brother Brody would put aside their differences. (In the earlier book, the two had a dust-up, and there had been bad blood for years.) This subplot has kept my attention throughout both books, but especially in Creed’s Honor. I can hardly wait for the third book, The Creed Legacy, to find out more about Brody.

I’d highly recommend this book to all readers of Linda Lael Miller’s. I’ve never picked up a book of hers that I haven’t enjoyed, and that’s saying a lot. (I can’t think of any other author, at least not at the moment, where I could make that same statement.) Go and pick it up! (and while you’re there, pick up A Creed in Stone Creek too!)
