Life Support and Life Everlasting - Robert Whitlow

I finished Robert Whitlow's Santee series. It was an interesting premise. Here's the blurbs on both books.
Life Support
A tragic accident in the Carolina mountains leaves a young man paralyzed and in a coma. Soon, a fierce legal battle erupts between the man's wife who wants to terminate life support and the young man's father who wants to keep his son alive at all costs. Caught up in the turmoil is a young female attorney who takes the case and finds out that her client's husband isn't the only person in need of life saving measures.

Life Everlasting
Book two in the Santee Series picks up with Baxter Richardson's recovery from a near-fatal fall from a cliff. Married to Rena, a suspicious and highly unstable woman, Baxter is faced with a choice of staggering ramifications.
While Rena Richardson is desperately trying to conceal her crime, her attorney, Alexia Lindale, struggles to put the pieces of the case - as well as her own life - back together. As the mysterious circumstances surrounding Baxter's brush with death are revealed, the focus shifts from Life Support to the question of Life Everlasting.

I enjoyed the books. They were well-written if a bit verbose for me. I found myself skipping quite often, but then I got in trouble because I'd miss something important. I'd recommend these books because they were interesting and I liked the heroine quite a bit, but be prepared to spend a lot of time reading.
Do you like books that are heavy on the description of settings, characters, history, etc. or would you rather just read the story?

  1. It depends. If the description cuts too much into the action then I might find it drags but if the description is skilfully weaved into the action and is just enough to let the reader get a good picture then that is certainly preferable. The books sound interesting.

  2. I am a new fan of yours and just had to tell you that I read The Sister Pact yesterday. Like literally, the whole book, yesterday. I started at about 3:00 and finished around 11:00. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! Romantic, steamy, suspenseful, nail biting, frustrating, slimy (Wes), perfect ending, all the stuff that makes a book good. Loooooved it! Thanks for a great read...

  4. Thanks, Laura for stopping by. They were interesting books. It is really hard to weave description in without slowing pace. This author just had a bit more description than I was interested in.
