Waiting for Spring

Author: Amanda Cabot
Publisher: Revell
January 2013
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3460-2
Genre: Historical romance

A new identity may protect her family--but can it protect her heart?

Charlotte has struggled to find a new beginning after the death of her husband and the birth of her son. She’s opened a dress shop, using a French name, and is hiding from the person who might have murdered her husband. Her son is blind, so she’s hired a housekeeper/babysitter, another widow with a small child, to help out.

Barrett Landry is being pushed to run for senator of the soon-to be state of Wyoming. He has all the qualifications needed, except one. His friends and potential voters all insist that he needs a wife. Barrett is looking in the direction of Miriam, the daughter of the town newspaper owner, since she is blond and would be a nice addition to his arm… but that is until he meets opinionated business owner, Charlotte.

Will Charlotte and Barrett find the courage to look love in the face? Or will their fears blot out any chance for happiness?

WAITING FOR SPRING is the second book in Ms. Cabots Westward Winds series, but it easily stands alone. I enjoyed getting to know Barrett and Charlotte and learning about their struggles. Charlotte is living a lie, trying to stay alive and Barrett is trying to live a life of integrity, basing his political race on the truth. What a great set up for tension!

If you like historical romance, don’t miss WAITING FOR SPRING or the first book in the series, Summer of Promise. I’m looking forward to With Autumns Return coming in 2014.  The premise behind WAITING FOR SPRING is factual, and there are some interesting notes included at the end of the book. $14.99. 400 pages. 5 stars.

I received this book in return for review from Revell.
