I’m pretty sure “A Reason to Sin” is my first book by Maureen McKade. Her writing style has a really good flow and her characters are interesting, although sometimes confusing, people. My only real complaint about this story is that I didn’t buy the premise of why the heroine had to work in a saloon in a different town and why she never involved the authorities. Rebecca needs money to retreive her child from the orphanage where she placed him when she could no longer afford to care for him. She’s also looking for her husband who deserted her after gambling away her inheritance. She’s also a holier than thou prig for the first several chapters of this book. And like I said, I also thought she was pretty stupid.
I liked the writing, I liked the flow; I didn’t like the plot or the vapidness of the heroine. But that’s just me.
