It's like she just gave up Sept. 21 2008
By Margaret C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
At about half way through I can tell you that the story is good and fun and intriguing. But the writing is irritating. Much as I said when I reviewed Sabrina by Lori Wick, the word usage is just awkward and causes a break in concentration and overall is ruining the book. I just do not understand it either, because I have read dozens of her books and never have found this in the before Sabrina and now Jessie. It is just weird, it is the same usage of "that" in all of the weirdest places. You might have to see it, to understand what I'm talking about but it is just weird.

After being completely finished, my overall opinion is that I'm disappointed. The story has so much potential and is really pretty good, but then it just ends completely abruptly. Then most of the loose ends are wrapped up in a whirl wind in the epilogue. The usage of "that" is just odd through out, but even beyond that, I do not know it just was not the best of Lori Wick that I have read. I am not saying do not read it, because it has tons of wonderful gospel lessons and heart warming plots, there is just a strangeness to the wording and then just ending. It could have been better, but it is still an okay read.

Jessie Oct. 8 2008
By C. Lockhart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a huge Lori Wick fan, so pretty much if she writes it, I love it! She admits herself that this book kind of trickled for her and was rather difficult to write. I think in a way you can see that toward the end. I found myself a little frustrated with the main character's stubbornness and felt like the plot moved somewhat slower. However, I loved that she brought in a character from a previous series, and redeemed him so completely! I confess that I liked Seth Redding in the Yellow Rose trilogy, but I wished then that he'd come to Christ. So to have him appear in Jessie as that man made the book for me. A definite must-read for Lori Wick fans!

Not up to Wick's usual standard Jan. 29 2009
By Kristen S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a huge Lori Wick fan, and I read her books over and over because I love them. However, this book was so bad that it made me wonder if she truly wrote it. (Or maybe she just got a horrible editor, who knows?) In any case, the plot was unrealistic and scattered. It was hard to like the title character, Jessie, as she seemed both overly needy (you're just gonna marry some strange dude because you're lonely?) and foolish (immediately letting some guy you barely know into your children's lives after he dumped both you and them without explanation to become a criminal? Seriously?)

The idea for this book isn't a bad one - indeed, it's probably more true to life than most of her books - but the plot is poorly conceived, and the characters aren't particularly likeable.

Jessie by Lori Wick Sept. 12 2008
By harman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have read all of Lori Wick. The first two books in this series were great. I really enjoyed them and I was looking forward to reading this one. I was very disappointed in this book. It was lousy. Jessie and her husband Seth were not charactors that I liked. How she handled what he told her about his past did not come off as real. He did not seem to care that much about what happen to her while he was gone. I did not like how the story played out. It came off as fake. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

Bland characters and no drama weigh down this romance April 22 2013
By Barbara L. Lemaster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The third book in the Big Sky Dreams trilogy focuses on the slightly controversial character of Seth Redding. Readers familiar with the storyline involving Dakota and Darvi will recognize Seth immediately, and then wonder why Ms. Wick elected to write a book about him.

Seth and Jessie marry after only two months of courting and then Seth disappears for eight years. Meanwhile, Jessie is left as a single mother to their girls. Seth finds religion and returns to Token Creek and to Jessie, who is stunned to see him again. The book chronicles the continuation of Seth and Jessie's strained marriage and their attempts at reconciliation.

Jessie marries Seth after only two months, not really knowing much about him, and does this mostly because she's lonely. This might be realistic, but it's also very stupid. Then, Jessie allows Seth back into her life without really knowing whether or not his conversion to Christianity is real or a ruse. Perhaps this is me being cynical, but I prefer my heroines to think a little bit before they act.

There's another thing. At one point in the book, the minor character Bri Jarvik is expecting a baby. This is prior to Seth's leaving for eight years. Bri and Rylan already have a son, Danny. After he returns, there is no mention of Bri's baby. Did the author forget that one of her characters was pregnant?

I am not at all surprised to hear that Ms. Wick state that this book was difficult to write. Why pick a character like Seth to begin with, would be my question. Also, the author has a tendency to shift the focus from the main couple to other couples that have been featured in the trilogy. Their conversations about the main couple are detailed, and this is distracting. It reminds me that she's written better books and that I could be reading one of them right now.

The book falls flat on many levels: the main characters aren't that interesting and there's little to no drama or conflict. The bulk of her reviews for this book on Amazon are two stars, and that's being generous.
