With Autumn's Return (Westward Winds, #3) by Amanda Cabot

She's planning on instant success. She didn't plan on love.
When Elizabeth Harding arrives in Cheyenne to open her medical practice, she is confident that the future is as bright as the warm Wyoming sun. Certain she'll have a line of patients eager for her services, she soon discovers the town may not welcome a new physician--especially a lady doctor. Even Jason Nordling, the handsome young attorney next door, seems to disapprove of her chosen profession.

When a web of deceit among Cheyenne's wealthiest residents threatens to catch Elizabeth and Jason in its snare, they must risk working together to save one of Elizabeth's patients--even if it means falling in love.

About this 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 thirty novels under a variety of pseudonyms. When she’s not writing, Amanda enjoys sewing, cooking and – of course – reading.

My Review:

Wow! What an excellent book, and a conclusion to a wonderful series. This can be read alone, but don't deny yourself the pleasure of the other two.
This is the story of the youngest sister, and her struggles to be in a man's profession, she is a graduated Doctor. Had to laugh at the town Dr who considered himself the only real doctor in town, he was in the Civil War and learned how to amputate limbs...that was his qualifications!!!
We find judging, like we all do...treating some people nice because of their status, or wealth, and others not so nice because of what they do for a living. Throughout the whole book we see God leading and showing the way.
We enjoy the beautiful scenery of Wyoming, and feel like we are there. We experience the building of the late 1800's Cheyenne, at this point only twenty years old.
We meet a young lawyer, who was deprived of a Mother's love as a child, and this forms his opinions, of course. He wants a wife who is a full time mother, now there is a really cute woman Dr next door to his office. Is God trying to tell him something?
This book has a bit of everything in it, even murder. I know you will enjoy this as much as I did, and am sad this is the last visit with the Harding sisters.

I received this book through Revell's Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
