Book Review: Whispers in the Wind by Lauraine Snelling

Excerpt: "Are you telling me this ranch is not ours?"

Mavis Engstrom shook her head, wishing for a way to erase the anger she could read on her son's face. Ransom wore the ice blue eyes and steel jaw of his father when he was fighting for control. "No, that is not what I am saying. I said the ranch belongs to Cassie Lockwood too." Whispers in the Wind, pg 7.

Back Cover: She's Come This Far.... Must She Turn Back Now?

After fleeing North Dakota and the now defunct Wild West Show, Cassie Lockwood and her companions have finally found the hidden valley in South Dakota where her father had dreamed of putting down roots. But to her dismay, she discovers a ranch already built on her land.

Cassie's arrival surprises Mavis Engstrom and forces her to reveal secrets she's kept hidden for years. Her son Ransom is suspicious of Cassie and questions the validity of her claim to the valley. But younger son Lucas decides from the start that he is in love with her and wants to marry her.

Will Cassie be able to build a home on the Bar E Ranch and fulfill her father's dream of raising horses, or will she be forced to return to the itinerant life of her past?

My Review: Whispers in the Wind is the second book in the Wild West Wind series. You can read my review of the first book in the series, Valley of Dreams, by clicking here. I hate giving bad reviews, but I did not enjoy this book. The plot didn't move me, the characters weren't deep enough, and the dialogue was stilted and boring. I am sure some people will really enjoy this novel, but I did not. I won't be wasting my time to read the third book in this series.
My Rating:

My Recommendation: I recommend this book to those who have read Valley of Dreams, the first book in this series, and enjoyed it.
