From the back cover : “Book 1 of the Texas Dreams series, Paper Roses will sweep you away with a tale of love, loss, and tantalizing possibilities.”
They got that right! I was swept away. And enjoyed every moment of it. This is a really good book! It kept me interested all the way through and I didn’t want to quit reading. There are lots of interesting characters in this book with stories that keep things interesting. I really like how the author included the history of the immigrants. She makes them seem real and likable. People you would be proud to have in your family tree.
Also from the back cover: Amanda Cabot is an accomplished author under various pen names. She is a charter member of Romance Writers of America, the co-founder of its New Jersey chapter, and an avid traveler.
