“Endearing characters, a tender love story, and intriguing mystery all work together to make Amanda Cabot’s A Stolen Heart a compelling and enjoyable read.”
—Margaret Brownley, author of Left at the Altar
Bestselling author Amanda Cabot takes readers back in time to the 1880s Texas Hill Country in her new historical romance novel, A Stolen Heart. This is the first book in a brand-new series packed with tension, mystery, and a tender love story that readers won’t soon forget.
Cimarron Creek seemed like an idyllic Texas town. But as soon as former schoolteacher Lydia Crawford stepped onto its dusty streets, she noticed a deep-seated resentment of Northerners—like her.
That won’t get Lydia down, though. She looks forward to the day when she reunites with her fiancé—until she discovers her fiancé has disappeared without a trace and has left behind a pregnant wife. The handsome Cimarron Creek sheriff urges Lydia to trust him, but she is having a hard time trusting anyone in a town where secrets and suspense prevail.
Cabot weaves an elegant tale of pure love amidst heartache. With an absorbing plot and engaging characters, A Stolen Heart is a springtime showstopper fit for every historical romance reader.
A Stolen Heart was not the book I expected it to be; it was so much more, and it will make you want to re-read it over and over again. From first glance, you think it's just a Christian book where everyone falls in love and everything is just peachy -- but this book is so not that at all.
However you imagine small town Texas, 1880, the town of Cimarron Creek is that place. As you get to know the main character, Lydia, and why she came to Cimarron Creek in the first place, you can't help but feel bad for the way that some people treated her because of where she came from. The town is dealing with many mysteries, but Lydia's primary question is why her fiance left town with a pregnant WIFE, which ties in to another big mystery that the town is dealing with. You start to get a hint of what is to come after the big Founder's Day celebration and who is behind everything but still, you won't expect how it will all end.
I have never read any of Amanda Cabot's books before, but after reading this one, you can bet that I will be reading the next book in this series! If you are in need of an 1880s, Texas based book with mystery and romance, you need to read this book now!!
