About the book:


Love Lost. . .and Found

Lady Anne Stone believes her prayers are answered and she’s at last found her long lost uncle. Unwilling to let her meet him on her own, Daniel Adams accompanies her to her uncle’s ranch. But instead of answers, Anne is left with more questions. Both Dan and Anne are convinced the man introduced as her uncle is an imposter and decide to continue the search for the new Earl of Stoneford.

But now the swindler is on their trail, hoping to steal Uncle David’s inheritance. Dan has his hands full trying to protect Anne, but he finds he must guard his heart just as carefully. Even though he’s good at keeping her safe, he knows he’ll never convince Anne to become a farmer’s wife in Oregon when she has her sights set on returning to her home in England. But as Anne’s quest becomes even more difficult — and dangerous — Anne begins to see Dan differently. Will she soon be envisioning a new life in America?

My thoughts:

Lady Anne's Quest is the second book in the Prairie Dreams series and, while I haven't read book one yet, I was still able to enjoy it - though I think I'd have liked it more had I read The Lady's Maid first.

I had a hard time getting into the story, probably because sometimes it felt like scenes ended too quickly/abruptly, so it was hard for me to really connect.

Anne's character annoyed me a little bit for most of the book - she just seemed a little uppity, at least to me, though I did start to like her more towards the end. Dan was a nice character and probably my favorite from Lady Anne's Quest.

I thought Anne's "quest" was really interesting and added a little mystery/suspense to the story. I liked the bit of danger in the book. I have to say, some parts of Lady Anne's Quest didn't seem believable to me. I won't go into much detail because I don't want to give away too much of the story, but suffice it to say that some of the choices characters made didn't seem realistic to me.

The ending to Lady Anne's Quest was sweet and very nice. The book leaves a couple of things unanswered, though, and makes me interested in reading A Lady in the Making to find out what happens next.
