March was a month full of historical fiction releases (and oddly, a few of them had heroines named Catherine or Caroline). The names were so close, I had to go back and double check myself a few times while reviewing. Really, that’s just an aside in case you were wondering if I’d mixed up my heroines when I talk about A Borrowed Dream by Amanda Cabot.
In My Opinion
Though this is the second book in Amanda Cabot’s Cimarron Creek trilogy, it stands on its own. In fact, it’s the first book I’ve read by the author and I followed the story just fine.
In this small Texas hill country town, gossip is a favorite pastime, followed closely by matchmaking, and the citizens have their eyes and ears open for the next scandal—especially if it involves any member of the town’s founding families.
