Waiting for Spring by Amanda Cabot
Amanda Cabot is the author of Paper Roses, Scattered Petals, Tomorrow’s Garden, and Summer of Promise. She is also a charter member of Romance Writers of America, the cofounder of its New Jersey chapter, a member of the ACFW, and an avid traveler. She lives in Wyoming.
From the book’s back cover:
After the loss of her husband and the birth of her baby, Charlotte has had a long, hard year. But she can find no rest from the ghosts of the past and flees to Cheyenne to put the pieces of her life back together.
Wealthy carrel baron and political hopeful Barrett Landry must make a sensible match if he is to be elected senator of the soon-to-be state of Wyoming. He needs someone with connections. Someone without a past. Yet he can’t shake the feeling that Charlotte holds the key to his heart and his future.
Will Charlotte and Barrett find the courage to look love in the face? Or will their fears blot out any chance for happiness?
Amanda Cabot’s stories never disappoint. Her characters are real and her description of setting is vivid. In Waiting for Spring she gives us Charlotte who leaves her past and seeks safety for her and her small child. Can Charlotte guard her heart as she does for her child?
Till next time … keep on smiling.
