    One thought on “The Master Fiddler”

    1. Jacquie, the heroine, is kinda dumb. She's sweet and kind but really really dumb. She's this rich sheltered 21 year old who decides to drop out of college and drive from her home in Texas to California all by herself. Didn't this girl ever see the first Friday the 13th movie? She obviously isn't scared of being hijacked, robbed or raped. But I digress The crux of the story deals with Jacquie's unfortunate car accident in Tombstone Arizona. The H is the other guy in the car accident and he is NOT [...]

    2. I didn't realize this was first published in '77 until I logged on to review. That explains a lot! Okay, I was mildly entertained. If my daughter were put in this situation, that rancher better be running. Creepy man grabs traveler off the road by holding her car hostage. The couple didn't really seem to have a chance to like or love each other. They seemed destined for divorce court. That chickie had a lot of growing up to do!

    3. This book was extremely boring. It wasnt really romantic, at least in my opinion, because Choya and Jacqui didnt have any chemistry. I liked Sam and Robbie.

    4. Hadn't read Janet Dailey in a while, so gave this a try. I guess I've outgrown her. This was so predictable and drawn out. I had to force myself to finish it.

    5. Jacquie is running. Running from her family, running from monotony and running from herself. She strikes out to LA, the first city that came to mind, and on the way literally runs into Choya. In the form of a car wreck. Now she is stuck in the tiny town of Tombstone, Arizona with no money, no job and now, no car.Choya really does not want to like the 21 year old Jacquie. She is sheltered, spoiled and asking for trouble with that face and body. having already lost a young wife, Choya isn’t look [...]

    6. Sheltered semi spoiled 21 year old Jaquie Grey decides college isn’t for her and against her parents wishes is going to LA to find a job and grow up, however, little Tombstone Arizona got in her way and so did rancher Choya Barnett, literally as she runs her car into his jeep. Now she finds herself with a lost wallet and no way to pay for repairs.Choya Barnett has no room in his life for a spoiled girl from Dallas especially when she’s captured his small son’s heart and will no doubt break [...]

    7. This story definitely doesn't update well thanks to the characters and some snafus. Here's the list of ways this story is dated. The characters: Jacquie, the headstrong "plucky" spoiled girl (aka heroine with no sense) out to find herself and Choya, a rugged, widower with a child. He lives by the philosophy, "I wont have a real conversation with you; because its much better to demean you when you so obviously aren't on my level." Part of this is due to the 10+ year age gap between them. Neither [...]

    10. Typical Romance from Janet Dailey. :) This time involving a motherless little boy and widower dad in Tombstone, Arizona. The 3 meet when Jacquie decides spur of the moment to move (against her parents' wishes) to L.A. and after a visit with her best friend in Bisbee, AZ, becomes involved in wreck with the main male character Choya (& his 7 yr old son Robbie) in Tombstone. In a little unusual twist, there was a backstory regarding Choya's birth mom and also his first marriage that Janet Daile [...]

    11. The book was ok. I had some 'issues' with the characters, tho. The girl (Jacquie) was portrayed as too wishy-washy and didn't have an independent bone in her body. The character Choya was over-bearing and mean most of the time to Jacquie and I thought he was real arrogantt a person I would have liked. I thought the son, Robbie, was way too spoiled. He was given into way too easily by all the adults in the story. I enjoyed the grandfather's character, tho. Sam was feisty and added life to the sto [...]

    12. Was a fun little super quick read. I see now that romances are pretty predictable. Jacquie leaves college and plans to move to California. On the way she has a car accident with a rancher and of course they fall for each other. He has a son who really likes Jacquie and she doesn't want to break his heart if it doesn't work out.

    13. I enjoyed this one more then the last but I still felt that the romance needed more and that it was a little rushed (the romance/love story). I loved Robbie and Jacquie most of the time, but Choya bothered me more then I would have liked.

    14. It's very hard to re-write a story from 1977 in "modern" times with email, cell phones that work pretty much anywhere, and big city adjustments to small towns! It was good, but maybe it could have used 1977 as "current day." It was a slow read.

    15. Sweet love story within a Christmas setting. Warmed my heart. Finished this book in a heart beat. Great, easy read that puts you in the Christmas spirit!

    16. This was a very nice romantic novel that doesn't go into everything. I had the large print and read it in 2 days while baby sitting.

    17. I remember reading this as a wee one, picking it up from my mom's shelf one day out of sheer boredom. I remember I thought there would be more music involved.

    18. Anytime I need a good "curl up on the couch and veg-out romance" I can always count on Janet Dailey. She never disappoints me.
