When a spurned suitor threatens her, heiress Alexandra Tarkington
flees New York for Mesquite Springs in the Texas Hill Country, where her
father is building a hotel. But the happy reunion she envisions is not
to be as her father insists she return to New York. Instead, Alexandra
carves out a niche for herself in town, teaching schoolchildren to paint
and enjoying the company of Gabe Seymour, a delightful man she met on
But all is not as it seems. Two men, each with his own agenda, have followed her to Mesquite Springs. And Gabe is an investigator, searching for proof that her father is a swindler. When a series of apparent accidents threaten her life, Alexandra and Gabe will have to work together to discover the truth. And perhaps along the way they will discover that the sparks of attraction they've felt from the beginning are more than sparks--they're love.
Bestselling author Amanda Cabot invites you back to 1850s Texas for this exciting and heartwarming tale of treachery, love, and learning to trust.
About The Author
I was eagerly anticipating this read, and it sure didn't disappoint! Now this is the third book in this series, and each can be read alone, but the characters are around in each story, and this one has some that maybe you didn't like in previous books, but now are really enjoyable!
I love Alexandra, for a woman with money, she had such a kind heart, and she goes above and beyond for children! Then Gabe, he is hurting, and thinking he is just looking into Alexandra's father, but!
Then, there are two men in town that are also interested in Alexandra, and we soon find out why!
I loved this story, yes, scary at times, but full of forgiveness and love! Yes, love of family and others!
I received this book through LibraryThing, and was not required to give a positive review.
