This is a wonderful western historical romance. I fell in love with Lydia, Travis and Aunt Bertha. I loved how Lydia decides to open the candy shop. All of that just sounded so delicious. I did not want to put this book down. I loved the romance and the slight tinge of suspense. I am so looking forward to the second book in the series. I received a copy of this book from Revell reads for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
From afar, Cimarron Creek seems like an idyllic town tucked in the Texas Hill Country. But when former schoolteacher Lydia Crawford steps onto its dusty streets in 1880, she finds a town with a deep-seated resentment of Northerners–like her. Lydia won’t let that get her down, though. All will be well when she’s reunited with her fiancé. But when she discovers he has disappeared–and that he left behind a pregnant wife–Lydia is at a loss about what to do next. The handsome sheriff urges her to trust him, but can she trust anyone in this town where secrets are as prevalent as bluebonnets in spring?
