A Game of Chance (Mackenzie Family #5) by Linda Howard
TBR Challenge 2012: Personal Challenge-- books on my list prior to 2011.
A Game of Chance has been on my to-read list since August 2010.
3.5* rounded up to 4*
A Game of Chance is a book I didn't expect to like as much
as I did. All the Mackenzie family books have been enjoyable, but none
have been great. A Game of Chance isn't great either, but it's a
whole lotta fun! Even when I tell myself it's over-the-top and
unbelievable, I still like it. Chance has just enough edge to be a great
Linda Howard hero, but with some truly good-guy qualities that insure
the reader respects him. Sunny was a well-written character with enough
believability to make her a sympathetic heroine.
There was failure to communicate between the characters, but that is
integral to the plot, so it made sense instead of being annoying. Good
