A Stolen Heart By Amanda Cabot

From afar, Cimarron Creek seems like an idyllic town tucked in the Texas Hill Country. But when former schoolteacher Lydia Crawford steps onto its dusty streets in 1880, she finds a town with a deep-seated resentment of Northerners--like her. Lydia won't let that get her down, though. All will be well when she's reunited with her fiancé. But when she discovers he has disappeared--and that he left behind a pregnant wife--Lydia is at a loss about what to do next. The handsome sheriff urges her to trust him, but can she trust anyone in this town where secrets are as prevalent as bluebonnets in spring?

Bestselling author Amanda Cabot invites readers back into Texas's storied past to experience love and adventure against a backdrop of tension and mystery in this first book in a brand-new series.

As always I love anything that this author writes because her books draw me in from the beginning.
Generally, it's usually either friends or family that you can't trust. Most of the time for me, it's my friends.
I liked this book because it's a who done it and I wasn't surprised in a way since he turned down the job of deputy which of course that made me suspicious.
I enjoyed the plot of this book .
It's not easy being accepted in a new town or a state and I had to do both.
But, unlike Lydia I no one to help welcome me like Aunt Bertha did.
I really liked Aunt Bertha.
As I read on, I felt like I knew the woman on a personal basis. She was like a grandmother to me.
Lydia was like a sister I never had. I loved how she bucked up and went on even though her plans didn't work out.
Travis is a cool guy. I can't explain why he's cool just is.
I guess what I'm trying to say is
Our plans may not always work out. Just because the door closed for that one doesn't always meet the ones God has.
Yes, there's always lid for every pot out there that just right.
I also loved how God helps us through our time of grief and sorrow.
Even though our Earthly Father doesn't always love us our Heavenly Father does
I received a complimentary copy from Netgalley and was in no way required to review this book but I just had to because I wanted everyone to know I enjoyed this book.
If you like the 1800's then this is the book for you.
Amanda Cabot looking forward to The next one!!!!
I can't forget about the candy treats! In fact, I was eating chocolate while reading a part of this story!
I too had many emotions while reading this book.
Just because there was a war, not every Northerner is bad. Just like not every person is a good person.
I think the townsfolk, especially family learns this the hard way.
And in life (especially me), has to learn the very hard way is not like a box of chocolates
With both parents avid readers, it's no surprise that Amanda Cabot learned to read at an early age. From there it was only a small step to deciding to become a writer. Of course, deciding and becoming are two different things, as she soon discovered. Fortunately for the world, her first attempts at fiction were not published, but she did meet her goal of selling a novel by her thirtieth birthday. Since then she’s sold more than thirty novels under a variety of pseudonyms. When she’s not writing, Amanda enjoys sewing, cooking and – of course – reading
