Book Review: Scattered Petals by Amanda Cabot

"Leaning back, Priscilla felt her own tension begin to ebb. In less than two days, they'd be in Ladreville, reunited with Clay. He and Papa would talk bout patients, Mama would have her bath, and Priscilla would meet Sarah. Though it seemed vaguely disloyal to her sister, Priscilla was looking forward to getting to know the woman Clay loved.

Perhaps she dozed. Afterward, she was never certain. All she knew was that two gunshots rang out.

'Stop or I'll shoot!' The voice was harsh and filled with menace.

As Mama gasped, Priscilla leaned forward to peer out the window, blood draining from her face at the sight of three men, their faces partially hidden by bandanas, their shotguns pointed at the coach." Scattered Petals, pg. 13.

Priscilla Morton left Boston looking for adventure, but she wasn't prepared for the danger that would find her on the trail to Texas. Three men hold up her stage, and take away all that she holds dear. She is left with fears that will not go away. When necessity bring her together with a handsome man and his haunted past. Priscilla wonders who needed whom more. Could God have really had a plan through her heartache?

Scattered Petals is the second book in Amanda Cabot's "Texas Dreams" series. Though this is the second book in a series, it was not distracting to the stand alone quality of the novel. It is a story of hope, forgiveness and second chances. Cabot is not afraid to put her characters in difficult situations. The story is full of action, adventure and suspense... not to mention romance. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these wonderful characters through the pages of the novel. After reading this story, I would like to read more books from the "Texas Dream" series.

I would recommend this book to lovers of romantic westerns and historical fiction.

Available now at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

(I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.)
