This book is the second in the Texas Dreams series and is set in the same town where Paper Roses took place. All the characters from the first book are here as well as a few new ones. This is what I like about series…you can make friends with the characters and go back and visit them again in other books!
This is an excellent story. It is a finalist for the Booksellers Best awards. I read it straight through and went on to the next one! Amanda Cabot is now on my list of Authors. Check out her other books too : Tomorrow’s Garden, Summer of Promise, and Waiting for Spring.
