REBECCA STEELE FINDING A DREAM (REBECCA STEELE SERIES BOOK 2) by JOANNE PATTERSON – Review by Karyn Taylor

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rebecca Steele Finding The Dream is the 2nd book in the Rebecca Steele Series by Joanne Patterson. I had not read the first book in this series, in fact, it’s the first time I had read anything by this author, but I was able to follow the story fine and didn’t feel that I was missing any relevant information.
Rebecca, or Becky as she’s known is now making a name for herself in the country music scene and is enjoying life living and helping out on the ranch and her friendship with Chance is developing into something more. As always the path to true love never runs smoothly and Becky and Chance face a few bumps in the road, but that makes for a more enjoyable reading experience. It would be boring if everything was perfect.
I loved both Becky and Chance’s characters. Becky is energetic and spirited but very loving and loyal to her friends and all who are close to her. Chance is a sweet, hardworking, cowboy who would do everything possible to make Becky happy.
I did take a little bit to get really into this story but overall I did enjoy it very much. The overall storyline is good although in parts I did feel that it could have been more descriptive. The book is quite short and I think it could have been padded out a little more. Some events were over very quickly and could have been added to. Although short, I did enjoy what I read.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream by Joanne Patterson is the second book in the Rebecca Steele series and my first book by this author. I am a sucker for a book that takes place in any part of my home state. That might have drawn me to the book but Joanne’s writing and great characters are what had me flipping the pages.

Great storyline, really like the little twist. As this is standalone, I can’t wait to go back and read the first book just to get to know Rebecca Steele a little better. Can’t wait to see what Rebecca’s next adventure going to be.

There are two sides to a border. In this story one side is American, one side is Mexican. There are two sides to the desert. Sarah sees it as a heaven, Benito sees it as a hell. She is a budding attorney from New York; he is a photojournalist fleeing the Mexican drug cartel. Destiny brings the two together in the Mexico-Arizona borderlands of the Sonoran Desert.

Follow the romance of soulmates Sarah and Benito as they learn from their striking similarities and discover their diverse cultural differences. Witness the humble Mexican woman who inspires change in a Vietnam veteran vigilante through the power of unconditional love. Listen to the retired Jewish professor from New York who moves to a western ranch and creatively helps the underprivileged in Nogales, south of the border wall. Through a series of synchronistic events, the paths and stories of these people intersect and destiny rules the direction that their lives take.

After 9-11 things changed dramatically at the border. This story is historic fiction, covering the simpler times before the border wall became such an issue and brings us forward into the present day. The people in this inspirational story live on the edge of a political, manmade borderline. A line that crosses through cities and homelands. A line that divides those who are prejudiced from one another but also a line that divides those who love. We discover that a border wall is just one kind of wall. There are political walls of injustice, emotional walls of defensiveness and social walls of discrimination. Join us as we watch the walls come tumbling down when one prioritizes the power of love, compassion and acceptance. We may not be able to open our borders, but we can open our minds and hearts. Let “The Walls Between Us” open yours! Based on a true story.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an exciting read as we follow Becky on the road to fame doing the rodeo circuit. With her best friend, Emily in tow, Becky lives at a horse ranch where she’s content until powers higher than herself force her to put a lot in perspective for her new life.
I loved reading the morals this story leads up to from love lessons to lessons on life. I love characters that can brave a lot of storms and come out on top. This was a beautiful read.

I didn’t read the first book in the series, but I had no problems getting to know Becky and her friends. You can feel the loyalty and love the characters have for each other. The lifelong friendship Becky has with Emily and how well they know each other is a important part of the story. So many of us wish we could have friends like that, who know you so well you don’t even have to say anything for them to know what you are feeling or thinking. It sure warmed my heart to read this and can’t wait to read the first book and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.

Do you have a dream of what you wanted to do? Did you achieve it? In this book, Becky is still on the path of finding her dream. She is handling everything that is happening in her life. She now lives in Tennessee on a ranch. She is going through the rodeo circuit and her music career is going up to new heights. Now things are going well, she is thrown a curveball that makes her think about what she should do. Can Becky hit the curveball out of the park or will she play it safe and let the ball go past her? Joanne Patterson is a talented author. I found her writing style is flowing and adventurous. It was written realistic enough that I found myself with Becky going through all of her adventures. I highly recommend this story for those who want a fun quick read.

4 out of 5 stars

Finding the Dream was the first book I’ve read by Joanne Patterson, from her stand alone, Rebecca Steele series. I never know what to expect when I read a standalone series, especially when I don’t read the books in sequential order. While I wish I had read book one first to get to know the characters a bit more in depth, this was still a great read. I enjoyed the characters and felt as though the storyline flowed well. Definitely a fun, fast paced book that I enjoyed reading on the lake. I look forward to reading more from Joanne Patterson.
