A Review of Alexandra Allred's She Cries by Heather!

She Cries
Alexandra Allred

Release Date: 8th May 2014
Genre: Romance/ Suspense 
Published by: The Writers Coffee Shop
Available from: AmazonKoboBarnes and Noble, and TWCS PH


Kali Jorgensen is the head instructor at Rainwash Ranch in Horse Canyon, Utah, leading cattle drives for celebrities and CEOs. Living and working alongside her three young daughters and her in-laws is as perfect as life can be since the death of her husband. She’s all about horses and family until a legal team from Houston, Texas, signs on with one problem athlete, his posse, and a world of trouble, and life on the ranch turns upside down.
The Jorgensens are unaware of just how deep the legal woes run with the pampered athlete and just how far the legal team will go to protect his image. Even more alarming is Kali’s unexplainable attraction to the lead attorney.

She Cries is a nail-biting, suspense novel that will leave you signing up for a cattle drive and falling in love with the most unlikely of heroes.

Heather's Review:

I want to start off by saying “Wow!” If I was asked to describe the emotional reaction in one word it would definitely be “Wow!” The characters are so well written, interesting, intriguing, and they all trigger immediate and long-term emotional ties to your heart. Some times the feeling you get immediately stays with you, a perfect example is Kali and her girls and of course Jeremy, even though they are very different ends of the emotion spectrum. Sometimes, that immediate reaction changes with time, such as with Jeremy’s lawyer, Sam.  

When their worlds collide the emotions just explode in a firestorm of spoilers that I won’t touch on here. Seeing a setting that could have easily been taken from nearly any newspaper in the world and knowing that it could and has happened, actually saddens the heart a bit but it also fed my desire to read the story and see how the author brought it to conclusion. I will say that for those who love romance, mystery/suspense, drama with maybe even a touch of thrillers, you will feel as you did as a kid waking up on Christmas morning.
I have to say that there were occasions that the story felt a little disjointed but I think that was to add to the suspense build-up. For my taste, I could have done with a little more smoother scene transitions but it wasn’t enough for it to take away from my enjoyment or my need to reach the last page as quickly as possible. As I reached the final page, I wished that I had taken a little more time and savored the story more, but in my personal review scale that is my benchmark of a great tale.
