A Stolen Heart

    BOOK REVIEW:   The future she dreamed of is gone. But perhaps a better one awaits.....   From afar, Cimarron Creek seems like an idyllic town tucked in the Texas Hill Country. But when a 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 fiance.
   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?

   MY REVIEW:   I thought this book was written well, but it wasn't one of my favorites. I found it to be particularly light, and I don't know if that is a problem with the book itself or with me.
   I liked the mystery line that was included. Storekeepers are having things go missing with no sign of breakin--several on the same night. And Edgar's dissappearance is very strange indeed--as though he dropped off the earth. I knew who was behind it about half-way through, but not quite the extent.
   I also liked that Lydia went about and made friends with the townspeople despite their dislike of her. And she didn't let changed plans break her.

                            I received this book from REVELL in exchange for my honest review.
