Waiting for Spring by Amanda Cabot:  Book Review by Loraine Nunley

Synopsis from back of book:

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 cattle 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?

My review:

I truly enjoyed reading Charlotte and Barrett’s story. It was a nice conflict to pair up a woman with a past and a man that needed a woman without one. I found most of the main characters very likable as well, from Charlotte’s child to Barrett’s brother. Each one added a depth to the story in their own ways. I also enjoyed the suspense part of this story. We learn the identity of the Baron but we don’t know how it will play out with him.

Charlotte is strong and determined to make her own way for herself and her child. She is also humble and loyal to those she loves. I liked her character in the first book of this series, but there was so much more to her in this book that I found myself rooting for her to overcome.

One of the campaign slogan’s that Barrett comes up with is Landry Never Lies. That sums up his character. Add to that his good looks and we have the making of a good hero.

What I enjoyed most about this book:

Charlotte. A young widow making her own way for her and her child. I rooted for her to succeed and to find love as well.

What I didn’t like about this book:

Nothing. Even the bad guy was done well.

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Would I recommend this book to others? Definitely. Great characters all the way around plus a little suspense and tension to tighten things up. It was a good story and I’m looking forward to reading the third book in this series. This is the second book in this series. It is a standalone story, but there would have been some spoilers in the first book if I read them out of order.

Where can I learn more about this author and their books?
