Waiting for Spring by Amanda Cabot
Westward Winds: Book Two
Revell / 2013
About the book:
A new identity may protect her family--but can it protect her heart?
After the loss of her husband and the birth of her baby, Charlotte has had a long, hard year. But she can find no rest from the ghosts of the past and flees to Cheyenne to put the pieces of her life back together.
Wealthy cattle baron and political hopeful Barrett Landry must make a sensible match if he is to be elected senator of the soon-to-be state of Wyoming. He needs someone with connections. Someone without a past. Yet he can't shake the feeling that Charlotte holds the key to his heart and his future.
Will Charlotte and Barrett find the courage to look love in the face? Or will their fears blot out any chance for happiness?
Waiting for Spring is only the second novel I've read by Amanda Cabot (the first being Summer of Promise), but I can already tell I'm a fan of her work! Waiting for Spring was a very enjoyable read that kept me interested throughout.
I loved the characters in Waiting for Spring, and couldn't help feeling for Charlotte and all she had gone through. She seemed like a very courageous woman, in spite of her fears. I loved the scenes with Barrett and David. It was so cute the way they interacted.
While the identity of "The Baron" isn't kept a secret from the reader, there was still a little bit of suspense to Waiting for Spring, which I really liked.
I was never bored while reading Waiting for Spring, but I will say I was surprised by the length of the story. At one point, I thought things were nearing the end, and I couldn't believe there was still a good chunk of the book left to read.
Overall, I loved Waiting for Spring and am looking forward to reading book three of the Westward Winds series, With Autumn's Return, which should release spring of 2014.
I recommend Waiting for Spring if you enjoy historical romances. I don't think it is necessary to read Summer of Promise first.
