Waiting for Spring, a review
After the loss of her husband and the birth of her baby, Charlotte has had a long, hard year. But when a notorious robber believes she knows the location of a long-lost treasure, she flees to Cheyenne and opens a dressmaker's shop to lie low and make a living. When wealthy cattle baron and political hopeful Barrett Landry enters the shop to visit her best customer, Charlotte feels drawn to him. If Barrett is to be a senator of the soon-to-be state of Wyoming, he must make a sensible match, and Miriam has all the right connections. Yet he can't shake the feeling that Charlotte holds the key to his heart and his future. Soon the past comes to call, and Barrett's plans crumble around him. Will Charlotte and Barrett find the courage to look love in the face? Or will their fears blot out any chance for happiness?
A pure gem and a fascinating story! I held my breath the entire way through Amanda Cabot's second book in the Westward Winds series! The layers of plot, adventurous setting, fully developed characters- all these elements provided an excitement I embraced completely, with no thought to anything else around me. Cabot masterfully created these layers in her story that pull you in and your heart, in turn, is taken in with an abundance of emotion. Oh! From Charlotte's son, to her friend's choice in beau, and Barrett's dream...not to mention the main thread that carries the story, Charlotte's hiding, it will leave you breathless! I cannot wait for the upcoming book in this series....it's proven its excellence!
