Summer of Promise Blog Tour!!

I recently received a copy of this new book, Summer of Promises by Amanda Cabot. She is an author I am somewhat familiar with and have enjoyed her historical novels before. This one doesn't fall far from the tree:)

Though she had planned to spend the summer in Vermont with her sweetheart, Abigail Harding cannot dismiss her concerns over her older sister. Charlotte's letters have been uncharacteristically melancholy, and her claims that nothing is wrong ring false, so Abigail heads West to Wyoming. The endless prairie seems monotonous, but when her stagecoach is attacked, Wyoming promises to be anything but boring. Luckily, the heroics of another passenger, Lieutenant Ethan Bowles, save the day.

When circumstances--and perhaps a bit of matchmaking--put Abigail and Ethan together, there's certainly attraction. But Abigail is planning to marry another man and return to life in Vermont as soon as she is finished attending to her sister. And Ethan loves his life in the Army and the wilds of Wyoming. When summer ends, will Abigail go back East? Or will she fall in love with this rugged land herself?

MY REVIEW-Have you ever read a book and you feel like you have taken the journey along with that character? That is how I felt after reading this book. Amanda Cabot takes you, the reader, along on the travels of one young lady, Abigail. The opening of this book is somewhat humorous and I had to laugh. What a funny little old lady!! Getting her married even though she knows nothing about her:) I don't want to spoil anything so I am not going to say much more about that, but you have to find out!! It really is funny.

I took a liking to Abigail from the beginning even though she was a little uppity at first. But I try to putmyself in her shoes of traveling alone and being a city girl going out west. What a trip it must have been! Imagine the sights you see! I really liked how the ending was done, even though it was a little bit different than expected. The characters are well thought out and the plot is beautiful! Lots of good reading in these pages. If you like a historical novel that takes you back into that time period, pick up a copy of this book at your local seller.

Available January 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation.
