Jennie Arnsby wants nothing more than to turn around and go home. Her family is on their way to Deadwood, SD, when Aiden finds his way to their small wagon train. His teasing and banter leaves her wanting to toss him out the back and in the dust. When, they are separated outside the city, she is left wondering if she’ll ever see him again.
Aiden Bradly wants to find his gold and return home, nothing more. He can’t afford to get tangled with a woman. He’s doing just that until he meets the feisty Jenny. She gets him thinking about his past and forgiveness, but what’s more important, his past or his new future?
Will Aiden be able to redeem both his past and his future and find a greater treasure than he ever imagined?
Dreams in Deadwood is book one of the Seven Brides of South Dakota series by Kari Trumbo. A romantic, Wild West romp in pioneer South Dakota.
A new life in a new town is more than enough change for Jennie Arnsby.
Yet, when Aiden Bradly joins their group as the wagons near Deadwood, South Dakota, more change is exactly what she gets.
A story of letting go of past mistakes and hurts, Kari Trumbo brings readers into the hustle, bustle, and dangers of the newly-formed gold rush town. As Aiden challenges Jennie to find something she likes about her new home, she challenges him to let go of something he’s been dead-set on since leaving his family home over a year before.
Tension is well built throughout the store, not only in the romance elements but also with the dangers of a rapidly growing town filled with men in the 1890s.
This was the first book I’ve ready by this author, but it won’t be my last. While this is a standalone book, the first one in the Seven Brides of South Dakota series, there were several references to Jennie’s older sister’s past. Ruby’s story was told in a previous book, A Ruby Glows. You won’t feel lost reading Dreams in Deadwood without reading the previous book, but it may enhance your reading experience and give you more insight into this family of eight (yep, eight) sisters.
