Cabot’s new trilogy set in the Texas hill country makes for a great new series.
When Lydia Crawford steps off the train the train in Cimarron Creek, she expects to meet her future husband. Instead she meets the sheriff, who informs him that her husband to be is missing. And then tells her that his wife is frantic with worry. Although Texas is known for its friendliness, just a few years after the civil war people still hold grudges and suspicion against any northerner in their presence. Alone and in a new place, will Lydia be able to start over? Or should she just return back home?
Amanda Cabot’s novels are always entertaining and seem to put the main character in very awkward situations. This remains the case for Lydia when she finds that the man she loves in married to someone else. Then romance appears for this character in someone who would be an unlikely fit. This is pretty much her formula, but one that works very well. It is similar to her Texas Crossroads series, but set in the 1880s rather than present day. If you like Texas historical fiction coupled with romance, this is a new series for you!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
