After the loss of her husband and the birth of her baby, Charlotte has had a long, hard year. But when a notorious robber believes she knows the location of a long-lost treasure, she flees to Cheyenne and opens a dressmaker's shop to lie low and make a living. When wealthy cattle baron and political hopeful Barrett Landry enters the shop to visit her best customer, Charlotte feels drawn to him.
If Barrett is to be a senator of the soon-to-be state of Wyoming, he must make a sensible match, and Miriam has all the right connections. Yet he can't shake the feeling that Charlotte holds the key to his heart and his future.
Soon the past comes to call, and Barrett's plans crumble around him. Will Charlotte and Barrett find the courage to look love in the face? Or will their fears blot out any chance for happiness?
This was a good one. Charlotte has moved to be away from her past and to keep her and her son safe from it. Barrett is a cattle baron and has political aspirations. To achieve his goals, he needs to marry a suitable wife and that isn't Charlotte. Charlotte and Barrett are attracted to each other but she has a great need to keep herself distanced. Will love win out?
I liked Charlotte! She is a strong, loving woman. She is also very giving and would do anything to take care of her son. Barrett is a strong, capable man who has his own issues to deal with but his personal and professional life seem like they will be at war soon. I loved all the little stories that make up this book. All of them are woven quite well together and the characters are developed well.
I rate this a 4/5. It was a good, intriguing book!
