Summer of Promise

Book Blurb:
Though she had planned to spend the summer in Vermont with her sweetheart, Abigail Harding cannot dismiss her concerns over her older sister. Charlotte's letters have been uncharacteristically melancholy, and her claims that nothing is wrong ring false, so Abigail heads West to Wyoming. The endless prairie seems monotonous, but when her stagecoach is attacked, Wyoming promises to be anything but boring. Luckily, the heroics of another passenger, Lieutenant Ethan Bowles, save the day.

When circumstances—and perhaps a bit of matchmaking—put Abigail and Ethan together, there's certainly attraction. But Abigail is planning to marry another man and return to life in Vermont as soon as she is finished attending to her sister. And Ethan loves his life in the Army and the wilds of Wyoming. When summer ends, will Abigail go back East? Or will she fall in love with this rugged land herself?

Book 1 of the new Westward Winds series, Summer of Promise is a tale of following your heart to unexpected places. Readers will enjoy Amanda Cabot's passionate characters and vibrant setting in the beautiful high prairie.

My Thoughts: Abigail is quite happy in Vermont, yet letters from her sister Charlotte draw her to go and see her in Fort Laramie, Wyoming. While she is on the stage-coach she is talked nearly to death by a widow who won't be quiet. On the stage-coach is a Lt. Bowles returning from leave. Abigail is not thrilled with the Wyoming countryside. To her it is boring! That changes pretty quick when the stage-coach is attacked and Lt. Bowles saves the day. When Abigail arrives she finds that her sister is pregnant and her brother in law, Jeffery is not as interested in his wife as he was when they married. Jeffery is not all that happy that his sister in law has arrived in town either. Abigail is determined to bring fun back to her sister's life and see her happy once again, after that she will return to Vermont, her teaching position, and the man she intends on marrying. Or will she?
This is the first book I've read of Amanda Cabot, and I loved it! It will not be my last! I highly recommend it and am looking forward to the next one in the series.
