Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith have teamed up once again to bring us another thrilling series, this one set in newly-established Seattle. Mixing real people and events with fiction lends this story true-to-life drama and an excellent setting for romance.
This is the second book of the Seattle Bride series. I have not yet had the opportunity to read the first one, but I will remedy that as soon as possible. I did appreciate that though the second book gives the reader an idea of what may have happened in the first, it did not give away too much. Also, I did not find it necessary to read the first to appreciate or understand the second.
Being drenched in a downpour is not exactly conducive to dreaming, but Kathryn is a young woman determined to make the best of even the most trying of circumstances. Unfortunately, there are those in the growing town of Seattle who wish she would leave: a reclusive artist, a lumber-yard boss, and of course the Indians who feel that “the white man” is intruding. Bullets and fists fly once Kathryn comes to town, and she must trust that God will make her rainy-day dreams come true despite the obstacles.
These two authors work seamlessly together to bring their readers a sense of history, intrigue and romance. They have also co-authored an Amish series that is delightful: The Amish of Apple Grove. I eagerly await the next book in their current series.
