Summer of Promise by Amanda Cabot ~ Revell Blog Tour & Review

Summer of Promise

My Review: Take a trip to wonderful, windy, Wyoming!

Abigail Harding makes the long journey to Fort Laramie to visit her sister, Charlotte, the wife of an officer. But things are not always how they seem, the fort is plagued with deserters and thefts, and Abigail finds herself gazing into the eyes of a certain Lieutenant
 Ethan Bowles.

Well written and well researched, I found Summer of Promise to show a wonderful representative of Wyoming, Prairie Dog holes and all! I loved how Ms. Cabot perfectly captured the Wyoming I know and love, it's not often I find a book set in Wyoming that actually gets it right! But this one did.

The story moved along quickly, and had a certain charmingness to it. The characters were well done, and the puppy was pretty cute. My favorite character was Ethan, a man with a stubborn determination about him--he also said that he would never marry...you know how that goes...

Overall, a enjoyable read. The ends didn't tie up exactly the way I thought they would, but that's just how life goes I guess! Recommended to readers of sweet prairie romances.
