Book Review: Waiting for Spring by Amanda Cabott

Widowed Charlotte Harding is starting a new life for herself and her baby boy in Cheyenne after a long, hard year. Fleeing her past, she works tirelessly at her new dress shop to build a safe and secure life away from the dangers she has known.

Barrett Landry needs to prove to himself and his family that he can make something of himself, and if becoming a wealthy cattle baron hasn't done it, surely becoming state senator will. He will need to marry well though - someone with a good social standing and connections he can use.

When Barrett visits Miss Harding's shop to meet his fiance, both of their plans for staying safe and building their lives take a turn. Will they let their friendship turn to something more, or let their fears of the unknown keep them to their separate safe paths.

I really enjoyed this story, I think especially because I really enjoy historical books that describe what people wear :-) I also enjoyed how the author added bits of history about raising children with special needs in the past, as well as what went on in the minds of states before they actually became one. I always enjoy when there are multiple facets to a book beyond just a romance story. This will be one I will read again.

Thank you so much to Revell Publishers for a free copy of this book to review.
