Posted on March 26, by jamesbradfordpate Janette Oke. When Calls the Heart. Minneapolis: Bethany House Publishers, I recently read the first two books of the Return to the Canadian West series, which Janette Oke co-wrote with her daughter see my reviews here and here.

Elizabeth runs into a bear on the way home from a student's house, she promptly faints and is rescued from a certain mauling by Wynn, who conveniently shows up to carry her out of danger gag.
Then, when he perceives that she looks rather pale, he kisses her to take her mind off the bear. Makes sense, no?
And then, when they go sledding and she twists her ankle slightly, Elizabeth pretends that she can't walk only to have an excuse to rest her cheek against his broad, red-coated chest after he gently swoops her up. The next day she admits her deceit and realizes that when Wynn checked her ankle HE lied and said it was injured so that he would have an excuse to carry her.
Nothing like a relationship built on mutual deceit, eh?
Then there were all those times when Elizabeth fell, tripped, or did some other clumsy thing unintentionally, these times so that Wynn was forced to catch her, steady her, or hold her. Cliche, I say. It seemed to me that for a schoolteacher, who was impressed upon me as intelligent enough for her chosen career, should not be able to figure out the things that I knew for a fact as soon as they were mentioned.
Honestly, Elizabeth was so slow.
She sits there and puzzles things out until you want to shake her. Apparently Elizabeth, who can teach kids from kindergarten to high school, cannot grasp these obvious things that are staring her in the face. I will, however, read the sequel to see if it can make me laugh, cry and rejoice, though I have small faith in its ability to do so.
