“Again one for great heroines, though!  Sky is one of a kind.” ~ Under the Covers

Mackenzie’s Whispering Cove stories tend to be my favorite.  STOCKINGS is no different because is completely out of the box!  Talk about an unconventional couple, I wish I could’ve read more about Sky and Leo.  And I think that’s the one thing that would’ve made this a better story than it was.  Although I enjoyed this a lot, I think it needed to be full length to really develop their romance.

Again one for great heroines, though!  Sky is one of a kind.  She puts on a goth, rebel facade to hide from her past and her problems.  She’s running from who she was and lands in Whispering Cove by accident.  And sort of gets stuck there!  Starting out as a the troublemaker and having run-ins with the law, the law being officer Leo, that part of the story was the hardest to grasp and believe.  Not the run-ins but how the town just accommodated a total stranger.  But maybe that’s the non-small town girl in me.

Leo is so straight laced, by the book, and well..a cop!  He’s the complete opposite of Sky and I love seeing those opposite attract stories.  The way one can tame the other just a bit, and the wilder side of the good boy can come out to play.  Again, I would’ve like to see this developed further but I enjoyed what we got!

In the end though, I think this fell just short of how great the previous stories in the series were but it was still an enjoyable read.  Always a charm to go back to this town.

About Mackenzie McKade

Born and raised in Arizona, I guess you'd call me a desert rat. Well, actually, I'd be a desert rat that loves the mountains and lakes. Arizona gives me great pleasure, because if I'm not at the computer writing or buried nose deep in a book you'll find me on a four-wheeler, or a jet ski, or being pulled behind my 26’ Monterey boat on an oblong tube called a ‘hot dog’ laughing my ass off. In fact, my family says I have an unnerving cackle cutting through the waves--similar to a witch!

Yes, that's right this witch has a family... Bill is my wonderful husband of twenty-two years. Tia, Samantha and Ashley are my three beautiful girls and my greatest accomplishments to date. And the light of my life is a devilishly handsome grandson, Dusty.

As writing is a passion with many—it’s an obsession with me. Who knew that the wild things going on in my head someone would actually read? But I'm thankful you do and I hope you find joy and entertainment in my sometimes—okay most of the time—risqué ramblings.
