    This one was bad. There were a ton of inconsistencies which I’m used to in DP books but this one things would be different from page to page. Plus the hero was more Inspector Gadget then FBI agent. He didn’t seem very intelligent. He couldn’t tell the difference between a marijuana plant tomato plant?!?! Some FBI guy. Then he and the heroine get together and I really don’t see why, there didn’t seem to be any chemistry. I usually like DP books but not this one. The only reason I gave this one 2 This one was bad.

The only reason I gave this one 2 stars is because the hero wasn’t mean or cruel like the usual heroes from this author.

    Watch the 3-minute book review: http://vimeo.com/32280215 In “The Texas Ranger” (the first of the two stories in this book)there was passion, mystery, and lots and lots of repetition. Is it just me, or is it insulting when the same information is repeated over, and over, and over? Either the author believes readers have the memory-span of goldfish, or there is simply nothing new to tell in the story. The pages repeatedly get filled with the same drivel that was originally stated.

Is it just me, or is it insulting when the same information is repeated over, and over, and over? Either the author believes readers have the memory-span of goldfish, or there is simply nothing new to tell in the story. The pages repeatedly get filled with the same drivel that was originally stated. Okay, “drivel” may be a harsh adjective. But, after reading the details of Jossette’s betrayal by Marc, more times than I can count, how else am I supposed to look at that information? I get it already; Marc was a jerk, there was a misunderstanding. Yada, yada, yada. If you say the word “love” ten times fast, even that word would lose all spark and appeal. That’s how this plot felt. In actuality, the one shining light in this whole novel was the passion between Marc and Jossette. Though most of their activities were building up to the big moment, those sexy scenes were as enjoyable as an unwrapped gift with shiny paper and ribbons. In that respect, the intensity couldn’t have been played-up better. Though I cannot say the same thing for the second story in the novel, where the passion fell limper than wet hair. “The Garden Cop” is a short story of Mary and Curtis, a pair who also work in law-enforcement. Though this story did not repeatedly hammer the same information in my head – Thankfully! – it did feel rushed. Yes, short stories are supposed to be short, but they should also be believable. The chemistry awakened too quickly from the initial quarrel. A flower does not grow overnight, after all. Perhaps there was just too much plot to shrink down into 80 pages. The crime and romance just weren’t compatibly matched in this race. How can the turtle of a mystery keep up with a romance with the speed of the road runner? Though I do believe romance and crime-solving can make a great recipe for pleasure, my own tastes found much lacking in this particular concoction. - EZRead Staffer, Amelia If you're interested in the book: http://www.ezread.com/book.asp?EAN=97...

    I got a Nook as an early Christmas present (yippee!!) and since the library where I work at recently started offering eBooks for free to patrons, I immediately went to Overdrive.com to download a book, to take my Nook for a test drive. Well, because we are so new to Overdrive (I think we've offered eBooks through them for less than a month?) our selection is extremely low, and because so many patrons are interested in the program, the usage is extremely high. This meant that when I went onto the I got a Nook as an early Christmas present (yippee!!) and since the library where I work at recently started offering eBooks for free to patrons, I immediately went to Overdrive.com to download a book, to take my Nook for a test drive. Well, because we are so new to Overdrive (I think we've offered eBooks through them for less than a month?) our selection is extremely low, and because so many patrons are interested in the program, the usage is extremely high. This meant that when I went onto the site to choose a book to read, I had exactly 10 books to choose from. Yes, 10. Imagine walking into your public library and only finding 10 books on the shelf. It's awesome how popular the program is, but at the same time, only 10 books to choose from is pretty pathetic. I tell that story to explain why I checked out A Man for All Seasons. I had never read a Diana Palmer book before but I knew a lot of them checked in and out at the library, and I figured it couldn't be that bad. It's free, beggars can't be chosers, yada yada. Turns out, this beggar can be choosy, because this book sucked. Like, a lot. So much that I deleted it off my Nook and went to B&N and bought a book to read. I couldn't stand it anymore. The plotline is obvious from the get-go. "Who did it" is so painfully obvious, I wanted to reach through the screen of my Nook and not only strangle the main characters for being so dense, I wanted to find the author and strangle her too. If I didn't know any better, I would have said that this was a self-published vanity book by a first-time author who couldn't get a publishing house interested in her. It's absolutely stunning to me that this woman has multiple books published. It just seems impossible, it really does. Before you choose to waste your time on this drivel, read the back of the cereal box. Read the newspaper inserts advertising the amazing Gold Show coming into town, where they will swindle you out of your money (don't expect that part in the ad though). Read the cautionary warnings on your blow dryer. But for God's sakes, don't read this book. You'll only hate yourself for wasting your time.

    This is a 2-in-1 by Diana Palmer. The first story called The Texas Ranger I've read before. The second story called the Garden Cop I haven't. I have to say that even though I did love the second story, I thought the hero was going to be one of those good looking,blonde, dumb guys even though he is an FBI agent because he didn't know the difference between a pot plant and a tomato plant. LOL!! And that's all I'm giving away. This is a 2-in-1 by Diana Palmer. The first story called The Texas Ranger I've read before. The second story called the Garden Cop I haven't.

    Diana PALMER This was a wonderful read even second or third time. I'm going back rereading old books that are digital. This one was from 2011 I think. All her books are great with enough romance to make it interesting. And always the mystery. Thanks Diana PALMER This was a wonderful read even second or third time.

    If your reading this review your probably already know the synopsis so I won't get into that, I was looking for a quick read and this fit the bill, two what I will call short stories. I didn't even finish The Texas Ranger because it was just awful!! The killer was evident at page 50 and they couldn't piece it together. (view spoiler)[At 15 Josette says she was raped, Brannon says she isn't but like a few years later they date, break up when he tries to have sex with her and finds he can't and ca If your reading this review your probably already know the synopsis so I won't get into that, I was looking for a quick read and this fit the bill, two what I will call short stories.

Now I'm a chick and the first time was painful but not surgery painful, there might be some rare instances, I'll have to google where it may require surgery but it wasn't mentioned (at least in what I read)(view spoiler)[ Didn't care for this story and have no interest in reading Garden Cop.

    I liked it but not exactly my favorite. Well, I read this book separately because I purchased The Texas Ranger and Garden Time differently. I enjoyed Garden Cop, the chemistry between Mary and the Hero (I forgot his name and I'm too lazy to turn on my ereader) is adorable. They're fighting in non-harmful way and I liked it. Too bad the angst is quite minimum. I was expecting Mary got injured and the Hero's worried and stuff like that. But overall I enjoyed it. :) I liked it but not exactly my favorite.

    2 3/4 stars - average for the 2 books - The Texas Ranger and Garden Cop by Diana Palmer. Really didn't like The Texas Ranger - the writing was mediocre, the plot ok with elements of ugh, and the characters not particularly likable. Garden Cop was better (and shorter) - like a standard Harlequin-type romance, but enjoyable enough to be a 3-star read. 2 3/4 stars - average for the 2 books - The Texas Ranger and Garden Cop by Diana Palmer.
