Waiting for Spring by Amanda Cabot

Cover Art This is an interesting historical romance about Charlotte, a widow who fears for her life and that of her son so she lies about her identity.  She's a dressmaker to the wealthy in her town of Cheyenne and wonders how to best help her blind son.  She meets Barrett, a man planning to run for senator who's courting Miriam, a friend and client of hers.  They immediately hit it off, but Barrett is planning to marry a woman who can help his career and Charlotte wants to keep as low a profile as possible.  Will they take the safe path or follow their hearts?

This is book two in the Westward Winds series, but works well as a stand-alone.  The story is well-written but felt a bit slow to me at times.  I like how we're shown what each of the characters are thinking and seeing Miriam fall in love is a nice bonus!  There's some suspense also as you wonder when the villain will find her and her son.  I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series.

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.

Available January 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
