[Following is the official OnlineBookClub.org review of “Sylvie’s Cowboy” by Iris Chacon.]
Sylvie’s Cowboy by Iris Chacon is a crime/thriller novel with a small twist of romance. This novel is a quick read that sucked the reader in and didn’t let go until the end. The characters were well developed and the plot well written. As the story progressed, and the plot unfolded I found it difficult to stop reading.
Sylvie Pace and Walter McGurth, two people from different sides of the track, are forced together when trouble brews in her father’s business. Her father dies and Sylvia’s life is in shambles. With the help of Walter she must learn to be independent. Sylvie moving from a life of luxury to a life of nothing is no easy feat. But being pulled into a game of tug of war far greater than she could ever know, leaves her fighting for not only her life but Walter’s life. While piecing together the level of deception in her life, Sylvie grows as a character into a woman that can stand on her own two feet.
I really enjoyed reading this story. The story was quick to pull the reader in as well as hold the reader’s attention. The plot’s well written and very intriguing to see it unfold from Sylvie having to start over, how easily she can be manipulated to how she overcomes her faults. But in the end she proves to be able to rely on her new found independence. The story had its quirky ups and downs with each character. All of it was easy to figure out which made it even more interesting to read for me as the reader.
What can I say, there is nothing I didn’t like about the book. It is one I would happily read again. In the end, Sylvia finds herself and love. Walter McGurth forced into watching over Sylvie, risks his life following her around and keeping her away from the people that would kill her. While we see Sylvie grow we also see him grow as he learns how to open up to somebody else.
Sylvie’s Cowboy by Iris Chacon is a quirky crime/thriller novel that is sure to pull the reader in until the end. It was an interesting crime/thriller novel and I would recommend it to those that love crime/thriller books and even those that love a little romantic twist. I rate Sylvie’s Cowboy a 3 out of 4 stars because I thought it makes for good light reading to pass the time quickly.
