I'm pretty sure you all will remember Tim Dutton from my interview with him in a previous blog. I was so taken with his style of writing I decided to collaborate on a works of our own which will be available on Amazon soon.
In the mean time, I picked up a copy of Oklahoma Storm. One of Tim's works. It's been a long time since I've read a western, but I can tell you now, I'm so glad I chose to do so or I would have missed out on something incredible.
I read the book in only a few days, yes, it was that difficult to put down for any length of time. I decided to write a review for Tim and put it on Amazon and Goodreads (always a must for any Indie author).
Anyhow, then I got to thinking about sharing it with all of you. Why shouldn't I pass along such a wonderful read, after all, sharing a good book is the right thing to do, and Oklahoma Storm is such a book.
Here is my review of Oklahoma Storm by Tim Dutton
Oklahoma Storm is the first western I've read in a long while. I found it action packed and filled with a rollercoaster of emotions. John Storm is a well mannered young man, thrown into the realms of bounty hunting to save the farm he grew up on. Not only is it his first time as a bounty hunter, but his quarry is one of the worst of the worst. There are laughs along the way, friends made, lessons learned, and some real tear jerker moments, with one in particular that that made me cry like a baby. The story drags you right in from the start and keeps you turning the pages, the plot well thought out, and all loose ends tied up neatly. The characters are well rounded and likeable, even allowing some semblance of sympathy for the outlaw which makes the story a rich with conflicting emotions. Western reader or not, I couldn't recommend Oklahoma Storm enough. I'd give more stars if I could. Nice job Mr Dutton. Job well done!
I have to say that I will be picking up more of Tim's work when I can, and as soon as I can. I hope that you do to.
Best wishes in the year 2017,
