Amanda Cabot is one of my favorite historical romance fiction authors and her latest novel is another excellent read! "A Borrowed Dream" is book #2 in her Cimarron Creek Trilogy. Catherine's mother died as a result of the doctor's method of treatment and therefore Catherine cannot trust a medical profession again. Catherine is resigned to the fact that she is living life alone and lives each day fulfilling her responsibility as the town schoolteacher. However, when a newcomer arrives in town, things begin to change. Austin has arrived in town with his daughter and he is captivated by Catherine. He is not whom he seems to be and as the relationship between the two develops he is not sure he can continue to hide under his charade.
Amanda has done an incredible job with tying together historical details with characters whom are relatable and whom the reader cannot help but love and root for. The story just flows so well from start to finish as the reader is introduced to various characters and learning their stories while at the same time seeing the interactions among characters and their lives intersecting and the storyline developing. This is such a great series and I am anxiously awaiting book #3!
