Review: A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz

About the book:
Her wilderness survival skills are without rival.
But her greatest talent is keeping other people's secrets.

After fleeing Virginia, Temperance Tucker and her family established an inn along the Shawnee River. It's a welcome way station for settlers and frontiersmen traveling through the wild Cumberland region of Kentucke--men like Sion Morgan, a Virginia surveyor who arrives at the inn with his crew, looking for an experienced guide.

Though he balks when Tempe is appointed to lead his team through the wilderness, it isn't long before Sion must admit that her abilities may outmatch his own. But can the tenuous tie they are forming survive the dangers waiting just around the bend?

With her signature sweeping style and ability to bring the distant past to vivid life, Laura Frantz beckons you to join her in a land of Indian ambushes, conflicting loyalties, and a tentative love that meanders like a cool mountain stream.

My thoughts:

A Moonbow Night was different from other Laura Frantz's novels that I've read, in that it had a slower story and took me a while to get completely in to. It was still enjoyable for me to read and I did like that the romance wasn't instantaneous with the start of the story and took some time to happen.

I loved the setting and I really liked the danger in the story, as that kept me on my toes waiting to see what would happen next. I was fascinated by the moonbow aspect and now I hope that I will see a "moonbow" myself someday. ;)

Overall, a very good historical read. I recommend it if you enjoy slower storylines or if you are a fan of previous Frantz novels.
