Revell Bloggers Tour Presents: Waiting for Spring by Amanda Cabot

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?

About The Author

With both parents avid readers, it's no surprise that Amanda Cabot learned to read at an early age. From there it was only a small step to deciding to become a writer. Of course, deciding and becoming are two different things, as she soon discovered. Fortunately for the world, her first attempts at fiction were not published, but she did meet her goal of selling a novel by her thirtieth birthday. Since then she’s sold more than twenty-five novels under a variety of pseudonyms. When she’s not writing, Amanda enjoys sewing, cooking and – of course – reading.

My Review:

Charlotte is on the run from an evil man known as the Barron. Her husband was killed and left her alone to have their son, David. In order to provide for him, she has opened a dress shop, and is great demand. One of her clients, Miriam, seem to also value her opinion.
Amanda Cabot has woven a wonderful picture of 1880's Cheyenne Wyoming Territory. This place is a booming town. Travel along with the pictures of beautiful mansions, lovely parks, restaurants, and country side. There is also danger lurking around the corner. Some of the people we meet are not really what they are portraying to be.
You will fall in love with the kindness, and love of others that some of these people are willing to give. Some really great friendships, and a bit of romance.
I could read more about these new friends, and hope you will enjoy this as much as I did.

I received this book through the Revell Bloggers Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
