About the Book
Though she hopes for a quiet, uncomplicated life for herself, Dorothy Clark wants nothing more than to stir others up. Specifically, she dreams of writing something that will challenge people as much as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin seems to have. But in 1850s Mesquite Springs, there are few opportunities for writers–until newspaperman Brandon Holloway arrives, that is.
Brandon Holloway has seen the disastrous effects of challenging others and has no intention of repeating that mistake. Instead of following his dreams, he’s committed to making a new–and completely uncontroversial–start in the Hill Country.
As Dorothy’s involvement in the fledgling newspaper grows from convenient to essential, the same change seems to be happening in Brandon’s heart. But before romance can bloom, Dorothy and Brandon must work together to discover who’s determined to divide the town and destroy Brandon’s livelihood.
With this second novel in the Mesquite Springs series, bestselling author Amanda Cabot invites you to discover the healing power of truth.

In My Opinion
Dorothy is not like most young women her age. She doesn’t dream of meeting her true love, marriage, and family. No, her dreams are of words. Of writing something meaningful.
When Brandon Holloway arrives in Mesquite Springs to start a newspaper, Dorothy is thrilled. As the two spend time together and bounce ideas off each other, Brandon’s appreciation for Dorothy grows. But someone does not want the paper to succeed.
I thoroughly enjoyed the romance between Brandon and Dorothy. And who isn’t going to fall a little in love with Nutmeg and her puppies? However, I felt like have the third point of view took a lot of the mystery about what was going on with the paper out of the story.
Overall, this was an enjoyable sweet romance for those who don’t mind spoilers. There will be a third book in the series, and I will definitely be picking it up—for the romance, catching up with the Mesquite Springs residents, as well as for the unfinished story line from Dreams Rekindled.
