A Vision of Lucy (#3) by Margaret Brownley

A Vision of Lucy (A Rocky Creek Romance)A Vision of Lucy by Margaret Brownley

My Rating: 4.5 stars!

Lucy Fairbanks is a spunky woman whose adventurous spirit and dream of becoming a professional photographer for the local newspaper keeps putting her in dangerous situations.

Like her mother, Lucy felt compelled to capture the world around her and preserve moments in time that would never be repeated. The only difference was their choice of expression. – Page 28

Her father doesn’t understand her dream of photography and would rather she paint (like her deceased mother did) and get married.

She stared at her father in open defiance. “I have plans for my life. Big plans. They do not include marriage.” – Page 26

One occasion, when Lucy was in danger, was when she was in a horse chestnut tree trying to capture the mythical wild white mustang on film. She instead witnesses (and interrupts) a stage coach robbery, almost is killed, but is rescued by the ‘wild man’, David Wolf.

David Wolf is a man who is on a mission. He is a half-breed (half-white, half-Indian), and he’s had a difficult life because of that. He doesn’t know his real name, who is parents are – or if they are even still alive, and he doesn’t even know where he belongs. Everywhere he goes he finds people who judge him just because of his blood – until he meets Lucy.

I loved how many of the same character from the books ‘A Lady Like Sarah’ and ‘A Suitor For Jenny’  were continued in ‘A Vision Of Lucy’. What I didn’t like, however, was how Old Man Hank Applegate’s name was changed in this book to Old Man Appleby. He seemed like the same character from previous books, yet his name was different.

Another thing I enjoyed about ‘A Vision of Lucy’ were the new characters. David Wolf’s story was really interesting, as was Lucy’s. Some parts of this book were predictable for me and a couple of things I didn’t care for all that much, but other than that I really liked ‘A Vision of Lucy’.

I was somewhat disappointed when I read that this is the final book in the ‘Rocky Creek Romance’ series. But I’m looking forward to reading Margaret Brownley’s next series ‘Brides of Last Chance Ranch’ which comes out sometime in 2012 (according to her website).I recommend ‘A Vision of Lucy’ if you enjoy reading romance novels.
