    I'm a huge fan of this authors. I love the way she can weave a tale and turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. I loved the story but wanted more with the ending. I'm hoping there will be a couple of spinoffs as the opportunities were there. ...

      I don't even know where to begin with. Rarely have I read a book that made me think of every cliche about romance and made me feel like I'm stuck in a long episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. Let me start by mentioning how antiquated and wooden this author's writing...

    3.5 Stars Going in to Strawberry Hill I thought this was a romance between Erin, the new Mystic Creek Deputy and Wyatt, a ranch foreman who is deaf, because there are two book descriptions out there and the one originally read was about Erin and Wyatt. I didn?t realize this until ...

    Strawberry Hill was a really cute and endearing story about a couple that reunites in their sixties and a blonde black bear that just won't quit. From the blurb, I thought this was Wyatt, deaf rancher, and Erin, newly appointed county patrol officer, story. Even though it starts wi...

    Overall, I enjoyed the book. It's not to often you get a love story about a couple in their 60's. There was the back story to how Slade and Vickie began when they were younger, what caused them to split up and then what brought them back together. I also enjoyed the part a bear cub pla...

    ARC received for review What is it lately with my favorite authors? This is the third one in a month. Y'all need to quit writing less than amazing books. I thought this was Vickie and Slade's HEA which it is, but she keep going back to another couple and writing their story. Then...

    A small-town second chance? Slade gets his story! I was thrilled to start this story where Slade?s first, and only, love comes back into his life. He has been in the background throughout the Mystic Creek series and I wanted/needed him to be less lonely. He lived his whole life ...

    The story suffered because it wasn't mainly about the older couple on the back of the book. They are in their 60s and have let 41 years pass for one misunderstanding. I would have liked this better had the story stayed focused on them and their issues. We really should have got to see ...

    Each year I?ve enjoyed a new visit to Mystic Creek, Oregon. This small-town series has introduced us to the townsfolk and ranchers in the area. Strawberry Hill shares the second chance romance of rancher Slade Wilder, and Vickie Brown, his high school sweetheart. The two were engage...

    What I liked : -The blond bear -Erin was an interesting character. Not your typical heroine, she tried all her life "to be the boy" her father wanted and she's working as a law officer, not sure she really like her job, but it was cool to see her want to reclaim her femininity and pl...

    Good book, but I found the blurb to be a bit misleading. Erin and Wyatt are part of this story, but not, in my opinion, the main story. Much more time is spent with Erin's Uncle Slade and Vickie Brown, the woman who broke his heart forty-one years earlier. I thought both stories were w...

    This was a DNF for me. When I originally saw this book, the synopsis was completely different from what's on the back of the book, and it talked about a new female sheriff (Erin) who gets stationed to a small town and a ranch foremen (Wyatt) who is deaf. However, this story is more so ...

    I enjoyed my return to Mystic Creek and the life out on a ranch feel. There was an older romance that was good to see finally have a resolution, although some aspects of the mix up did not appeal to me. Nor the pranks - quite odd. I liked the romance of the younger couple and wanted mo...

    I enjoyed this story immensely. The characters could have been friends, the setting just where I would love to live. Once again I find the message that love conquers all. ...

    Having read and enjoyed many romances by Catherine Anderson, I was excited to see she was releasing a new book. Although, I have to say that since she featured two couples in this novel, I wasn't really sure which couple was the focus of the romance until the very end. In the end, this...

    Strawberry Hill by Catherine Anderson is the 5th book in her Mystic Creek series. Each one of the books in this series usually centers on two couples; one being an older couple. In Strawberry Hill, the older couple is the main couple, though early on in the book, it seemed to be focuse...

    Ranch owner, Slade Wilder, winds up rescuing a blond black bear cub after finding the mother dead due to a landslide and the baby in an illegal leg trap. He called to report the incident and was told to leave the cub alone which is what he was going to do until the baby followed him ho...

    So sad, but all too true, how one person or event can change the lives of so many. I have not read anything by this author before. The language was more crude at times than I expected but that did not detract from the overall story. I would suggest better editing and proofreading sinc...

    I loved this book. Smoothly written, I fell in love all over again with Mystic Creek, Oregon. Connections between two families have a way in allowing more than one romance in the making to happen. It took a lot of courage and outrage for Vickie to return to where Slade still lives. Bot...

    I'm a huge fan of this authors. I love the way she can weave a tale and turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. I loved the story but wanted more with the ending. I'm hoping there will be a couple of spinoffs as the opportunities were there. ...

      I don't even know where to begin with. Rarely have I read a book that made me think of every cliche about romance and made me feel like I'm stuck in a long episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. Let me start by mentioning how antiquated and wooden this author's writing...

    3.5 Stars Going in to Strawberry Hill I thought this was a romance between Erin, the new Mystic Creek Deputy and Wyatt, a ranch foreman who is deaf, because there are two book descriptions out there and the one originally read was about Erin and Wyatt. I didn?t realize this until ...

    Strawberry Hill was a really cute and endearing story about a couple that reunites in their sixties and a blonde black bear that just won't quit. From the blurb, I thought this was Wyatt, deaf rancher, and Erin, newly appointed county patrol officer, story. Even though it starts wi...

    Overall, I enjoyed the book. It's not to often you get a love story about a couple in their 60's. There was the back story to how Slade and Vickie began when they were younger, what caused them to split up and then what brought them back together. I also enjoyed the part a bear cub pla...

    ARC received for review What is it lately with my favorite authors? This is the third one in a month. Y'all need to quit writing less than amazing books. I thought this was Vickie and Slade's HEA which it is, but she keep going back to another couple and writing their story. Then...

    A small-town second chance? Slade gets his story! I was thrilled to start this story where Slade?s first, and only, love comes back into his life. He has been in the background throughout the Mystic Creek series and I wanted/needed him to be less lonely. He lived his whole life ...

    The story suffered because it wasn't mainly about the older couple on the back of the book. They are in their 60s and have let 41 years pass for one misunderstanding. I would have liked this better had the story stayed focused on them and their issues. We really should have got to see ...

    Each year I?ve enjoyed a new visit to Mystic Creek, Oregon. This small-town series has introduced us to the townsfolk and ranchers in the area. Strawberry Hill shares the second chance romance of rancher Slade Wilder, and Vickie Brown, his high school sweetheart. The two were engage...

    What I liked : -The blond bear -Erin was an interesting character. Not your typical heroine, she tried all her life "to be the boy" her father wanted and she's working as a law officer, not sure she really like her job, but it was cool to see her want to reclaim her femininity and pl...

    Good book, but I found the blurb to be a bit misleading. Erin and Wyatt are part of this story, but not, in my opinion, the main story. Much more time is spent with Erin's Uncle Slade and Vickie Brown, the woman who broke his heart forty-one years earlier. I thought both stories were w...

    This was a DNF for me. When I originally saw this book, the synopsis was completely different from what's on the back of the book, and it talked about a new female sheriff (Erin) who gets stationed to a small town and a ranch foremen (Wyatt) who is deaf. However, this story is more so ...

    I enjoyed my return to Mystic Creek and the life out on a ranch feel. There was an older romance that was good to see finally have a resolution, although some aspects of the mix up did not appeal to me. Nor the pranks - quite odd. I liked the romance of the younger couple and wanted mo...

    An orphaned cub, a second chance for two people in their winter years, camp pranks, and a spanking new romance in a small Oregon mountain town had me settling in for a comfy read. Strawberry Hill is book five in the Mystic Creek series, but it will work fine standalone or out of ord...

    This was a DNF for me. When I originally saw this book, the synopsis was completely different from what's on the back of the book, and it talked about a new female sheriff (Erin) who gets stationed to a small town and a ranch foremen (Wyatt) who is deaf. However, this story is more so ...

    I enjoyed my return to Mystic Creek and the life out on a ranch feel. There was an older romance that was good to see finally have a resolution, although some aspects of the mix up did not appeal to me. Nor the pranks - quite odd. I liked the romance of the younger couple and wanted mo...

    I don't think this book really has a sound plot. Considering the amount of pages (462 in my edition) and the time dedicated to actual plot development, this wasn't her best. I think the couple reunited in their 60s could have had a novella - especially because the book is about the...

    Likable characters but terribly unfocused plot Spoilers I liked this story, I found it both tragic and heartwarming, but it had some big problems narratively. At the center was Slade and Vickie, two sixty-something has-been sweethearts who were to be married until distrust bro...

    Strawberry Hill a part of the Mystic Creek Series by Catherine Anderson is a +60 Second chance romance with a stunning outcome, that had me researching for the next book in this amazing series. Slade a lone rancher had his share of heartbreak and trouble throughout his years, but he...

    Another great book by this author. The description was a bit miss leading because it sounded like it was going to be the story of the ranch forman and slades neece. However that turned out not quite to be the case and ended up being the story of slade and vicky with wyat and aren being...

    Another winner by one of my favorite authors. Scenes between Slade and Vickie had me laughing out loud. Hope we read more on Wyatt and Erin in the next book as I thought this book would have been their story too. If you are looking for a light funny read, give this one a try. You won't...

    I enjoyed this story immensely. The characters could have been friends, the setting just where I would love to live. Once again I find the message that love conquers all. ...

    Having read and enjoyed many romances by Catherine Anderson, I was excited to see she was releasing a new book. Although, I have to say that since she featured two couples in this novel, I wasn't really sure which couple was the focus of the romance until the very end. In the end, this...

    Strawberry Hill by Catherine Anderson is the 5th book in her Mystic Creek series. Each one of the books in this series usually centers on two couples; one being an older couple. In Strawberry Hill, the older couple is the main couple, though early on in the book, it seemed to be focuse...

    I'm a huge fan of this authors. I love the way she can weave a tale and turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. I loved the story but wanted more with the ending. I'm hoping there will be a couple of spinoffs as the opportunities were there. ...

      I don't even know where to begin with. Rarely have I read a book that made me think of every cliche about romance and made me feel like I'm stuck in a long episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. Let me start by mentioning how antiquated and wooden this author's writing...

    Strawberry Hill was a really cute and endearing story about a couple that reunites in their sixties and a blonde black bear that just won't quit. From the blurb, I thought this was Wyatt, deaf rancher, and Erin, newly appointed county patrol officer, story. Even though it starts wi...

    Overall, I enjoyed the book. It's not to often you get a love story about a couple in their 60's. There was the back story to how Slade and Vickie began when they were younger, what caused them to split up and then what brought them back together. I also enjoyed the part a bear cub pla...

    The story suffered because it wasn't mainly about the older couple on the back of the book. They are in their 60s and have let 41 years pass for one misunderstanding. I would have liked this better had the story stayed focused on them and their issues. We really should have got to see ...

    I loved this book. Smoothly written, I fell in love all over again with Mystic Creek, Oregon. Connections between two families have a way in allowing more than one romance in the making to happen. It took a lot of courage and outrage for Vickie to return to where Slade still lives. Bot...

    I like this book better than the last one I read by this author, The Christmas Room. The two women are truly strong and don?t need a man to rescue or protect them. This feels like a departure from Anderson?s previous heroines as victims. As in The Christmas Room the stories of two ...

    This book was only an OK read for me. The main couple (Slade and Vickie) never fully connected with me. Their story is a second chance at love for an older couple. My issues with them had to do with their actions. Unfortunately they both came across as so juvenile, that it drove me cra...

    Ranch owner, Slade Wilder, winds up rescuing a blond black bear cub after finding the mother dead due to a landslide and the baby in an illegal leg trap. He called to report the incident and was told to leave the cub alone which is what he was going to do until the baby followed him ho...

    So sad, but all too true, how one person or event can change the lives of so many. I have not read anything by this author before. The language was more crude at times than I expected but that did not detract from the overall story. I would suggest better editing and proofreading sinc...

    I loved this book. Smoothly written, I fell in love all over again with Mystic Creek, Oregon. Connections between two families have a way in allowing more than one romance in the making to happen. It took a lot of courage and outrage for Vickie to return to where Slade still lives. Bot...

    I like this book better than the last one I read by this author, The Christmas Room. The two women are truly strong and don?t need a man to rescue or protect them. This feels like a departure from Anderson?s previous heroines as victims. As in The Christmas Room the stories of two ...

    I'm a huge fan of this authors. I love the way she can weave a tale and turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. I loved the story but wanted more with the ending. I'm hoping there will be a couple of spinoffs as the opportunities were there. ...

      I don't even know where to begin with. Rarely have I read a book that made me think of every cliche about romance and made me feel like I'm stuck in a long episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. Let me start by mentioning how antiquated and wooden this author's writing...

    3.5 Stars Going in to Strawberry Hill I thought this was a romance between Erin, the new Mystic Creek Deputy and Wyatt, a ranch foreman who is deaf, because there are two book descriptions out there and the one originally read was about Erin and Wyatt. I didn?t realize this until ...

    Strawberry Hill was a really cute and endearing story about a couple that reunites in their sixties and a blonde black bear that just won't quit. From the blurb, I thought this was Wyatt, deaf rancher, and Erin, newly appointed county patrol officer, story. Even though it starts wi...

    Overall, I enjoyed the book. It's not to often you get a love story about a couple in their 60's. There was the back story to how Slade and Vickie began when they were younger, what caused them to split up and then what brought them back together. I also enjoyed the part a bear cub pla...

    ARC received for review What is it lately with my favorite authors? This is the third one in a month. Y'all need to quit writing less than amazing books. I thought this was Vickie and Slade's HEA which it is, but she keep going back to another couple and writing their story. Then...

    A small-town second chance? Slade gets his story! I was thrilled to start this story where Slade?s first, and only, love comes back into his life. He has been in the background throughout the Mystic Creek series and I wanted/needed him to be less lonely. He lived his whole life ...

    The story suffered because it wasn't mainly about the older couple on the back of the book. They are in their 60s and have let 41 years pass for one misunderstanding. I would have liked this better had the story stayed focused on them and their issues. We really should have got to see ...

    Each year I?ve enjoyed a new visit to Mystic Creek, Oregon. This small-town series has introduced us to the townsfolk and ranchers in the area. Strawberry Hill shares the second chance romance of rancher Slade Wilder, and Vickie Brown, his high school sweetheart. The two were engage...

    What I liked : -The blond bear -Erin was an interesting character. Not your typical heroine, she tried all her life "to be the boy" her father wanted and she's working as a law officer, not sure she really like her job, but it was cool to see her want to reclaim her femininity and pl...

    Good book, but I found the blurb to be a bit misleading. Erin and Wyatt are part of this story, but not, in my opinion, the main story. Much more time is spent with Erin's Uncle Slade and Vickie Brown, the woman who broke his heart forty-one years earlier. I thought both stories were w...

    This was a DNF for me. When I originally saw this book, the synopsis was completely different from what's on the back of the book, and it talked about a new female sheriff (Erin) who gets stationed to a small town and a ranch foremen (Wyatt) who is deaf. However, this story is more so ...

    I enjoyed my return to Mystic Creek and the life out on a ranch feel. There was an older romance that was good to see finally have a resolution, although some aspects of the mix up did not appeal to me. Nor the pranks - quite odd. I liked the romance of the younger couple and wanted mo...

    An orphaned cub, a second chance for two people in their winter years, camp pranks, and a spanking new romance in a small Oregon mountain town had me settling in for a comfy read. Strawberry Hill is book five in the Mystic Creek series, but it will work fine standalone or out of ord...

    I don't think this book really has a sound plot. Considering the amount of pages (462 in my edition) and the time dedicated to actual plot development, this wasn't her best. I think the couple reunited in their 60s could have had a novella - especially because the book is about the...

    Likable characters but terribly unfocused plot Spoilers I liked this story, I found it both tragic and heartwarming, but it had some big problems narratively. At the center was Slade and Vickie, two sixty-something has-been sweethearts who were to be married until distrust bro...

    Strawberry Hill a part of the Mystic Creek Series by Catherine Anderson is a +60 Second chance romance with a stunning outcome, that had me researching for the next book in this amazing series. Slade a lone rancher had his share of heartbreak and trouble throughout his years, but he...

    Another great book by this author. The description was a bit miss leading because it sounded like it was going to be the story of the ranch forman and slades neece. However that turned out not quite to be the case and ended up being the story of slade and vicky with wyat and aren being...

    Another winner by one of my favorite authors. Scenes between Slade and Vickie had me laughing out loud. Hope we read more on Wyatt and Erin in the next book as I thought this book would have been their story too. If you are looking for a light funny read, give this one a try. You won't...

    I enjoyed this story immensely. The characters could have been friends, the setting just where I would love to live. Once again I find the message that love conquers all. ...
