A Borrowed Dream,#2 Cimarron Creek Trilogy by Amanda Cabot

***** 5 stars

I Want to Stay in This Romantic Western...

Ah! After finishing Amanda Cabot’s book, The Borrowed Dream, I just want to bask in the glow of a clean, romantic western that touched all the right places of my heart. There is just the right amount of mystery with the disappearance years ago of the daughter of one of the founding families. There is suspense as rancher Austin Goddard tries to hide his true identity, yet still help people. There is romance as two people with very giving hearts are drawn together. Faith plays an important role, as well. How will God lead Catherine Whitfield and Austin to conquer fears and overcome evil in order to enjoy the life they believe God has for them? 

Amanda Cabot somehow has masterfully mixed all these ingredients into a tale that has the feel of “Little House on the Prairie,” yet with faith and more suspense intertwined. The two children in this novel, Seth and Hannah, are delightful and major players in the drama. While The Borrowed Dream is book two of the series, it stands alone quite well.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley. This in no way influences my opinions, freely given, for which I am solely responsible.
