My Review: It's been awhile since I've read a kindle book that I absolutely
love!! I thought the dialogue was very real and flowed well; the
interactions between characters was realistic as well. I felt like I
could see inside the characters and understand them and what made them
tick, yet I got a great story in the process.
I don't believe
we're given a time period, but I believe it's probably 1800s western
(telegraphs, horses, words used, etc). Emma's parents have passed away
and she is living with her best friend and sister-in-law, Eliza, and her
brother, Seth. They run an inn in town and when two handsome cowboy
brothers show up looking for a room, Emma is thrown into a world of
confusion and love.
Emma and Thatcher both have insecurities that
threaten their relationship. It was nice to see even a manly man feel
those kinds of feelings, instead of being all tough and almost
feelingless. Emma had a lot going for her, yet she refused to see and
believe that someone like Thatcher could possibly be interested in her.
Sometimes those types of heroines are annoying, but Emma wasn't.
I loved it from beginning to end and look forward to more of this author's works.
