A Stolen Heart-Cimarron Creek Trilogy by Amanda Cabot (review by Cathy)

A stolen heart
About the book:
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?
Bestselling author Amanda Cabot invites readers back into Texas’s storied past to experience love and adventure against a backdrop of tension and mystery in this first book in a brand-new series.
My review (4-stars):
A blend of mystery, new beginnings and acceptance makes this a fun and easy read.
The characters are interesting in Cimarron Creek even though some are a bit intolerant of Lydia and her Northern roots. Which made sense given the time period.
Lydia is dealt a blow when she arrives in town only to find her fiance, Edgar
is missing. The story moves at a brisk pace as she meets the residents and tries to make the best of her situation.
Travis and Aunt Bertha are instrumental in helping Lydia and are my two favorite characters.With their kindness and understanding, you begin to see Lydia flourish in her new community.
There is some nefarious activity going on throughout the town which adds quite a twist and kept me turning the pages as fast as I could. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
I received a complimentary copy of A Stolen Heart from the publisher and have given my honest opinion.
