The Sisters of Bethlehem Springs #2
Reviewed in the United States on March 27, 2014
Cleo is a rancher. She wrangles horses, wears jeans and doesn't mind hard work. When her father tells her that an Englishman is coming to stay with them for a year, the last thing she wants to do is deal with a snooty, high society man. Biased, she gives him menial tasks and ends up being surprised at his determination to do the work without complaining.
Sherwood "Woody" has been sent by his father to the ranch. Not knowing what to expect, he hopes to escape his current path in life. Wounds he got in the war are both physical and mental, but he'll never complain to a woman like Cleo. As they start to get to know one another, their differences begin to fade, but will they discover they like each other enough that once his year in America is over, they'll find the common ground to stay together?
I did enjoy this book. It was a fast, easy read and I loved Cleo's spunk and the way she treated Woody at first. No special treatment for the son of a duke! The first book in the series, A Vote of Confidence, was about Gwen, Cleo's sister, and she shows up quite a bit in this book. While you get a lot of the lives of Morgan and Gwen, you don't get much of the story of how they ended up together. In my opinion, this makes it a safe series to read out of order. The final book in the series, A Matter of Character, is about Daphne, Morgan's sister.
