Rachel Fordham is a brand-new author and I hope that her debut novel, "The Hope of Azure Springs," is just the first of many books to be written! Rachel has does an incredible job with creating a storyline that flows nicely while holding the reader's attention and creating characters whom are easy to relate to and likable.
Em arrived in Azure Springs on an Orphan Train and this is her new home. However, she finds herself alone once again, but this time she is adult, being 19 now and she is determined to find her sister. Needing help with this venture, the sheriff is the perfect choice in more ways than one. Not only can he help her and help protect her, but he has made it his mission to solve every case he encounters as he is seeking approval from his parents. Neither Em or Caleb realize just how things are going to go, including their hearts becoming involved along the way.
Rachel is going to be an author who I will be watching for new releases as this was such a great debut novel! I thoroughly enjoyed it all and she has such a great writing style. I am anxious to see what she writes next! I highly recommend this for everyone who enjoys historical fiction!
