This is the second book in the Mesquite Springs series. The first book in the series was “Out of the Embers”. While you will be able to read and enjoy this one without reading the first, I think it is much better if you read the first one since they do have some of the same characters. And while both books are labeled as historical romance, I find both have a little bit of mystery and intrigue in them which keeps you from wanting to put the book down. The mystery I have found in her books isn’t just of the romantic kind either. Amanda Cabot has a way of bringing her town and characters to life that leaves you feeling like you have visited with old friends and/or family. She is definitely being added to my must read her books list.
