    I love the song "Paper Roses" so this title naturally pulled me to get this book, and I must say that I enjoyed the book as much as I do the song, two completely different 'stories' though. Well maybe if I do a little finagling there may be something kind of similar, let's see if you can figure it out. I am looking forward to reading the next two books in this series and I also have my eye on The Westward Winds series.

    Liked it very much lots of excitement, issues of prejudice in the town is still a topic for today, to bad we can't stop it just as in this town it's a hard issue but it's handled very well

    I was pleasantly surprised by the first book I've read by Amanda Cabot. It was soothingly predictable, but full of interesting and surprising twists and turns. Like a long journey - you know where you are going when you start out, and you look forward to getting there, but that doesn't stop you from very much enjoying the trip. As well as the romance, there was the mystery and suspense, and just a touch of humor. Sarah was a delightful heroine - wounded but strong, fearful but brave. Clay is a true Texan hero - very hurt by the past, having suffered so many losses, but always the generous gentleman. there is a strong emphasis on God's plan in their lives, and the need to trust Him with our lives and our futures. Most enjoyable!

    Sarah Dobbs leaves Philadelphia with her little sister Thea in tow, searching for a new life where her past in unknown. She hopes that life as Austin Canfield's mail-order bride in Ladreville, Texas, will give her the chance to give Thea a place to grow up free from the judgmental attitudes she left in Pennsylvania. However, when she arrives, she finds that Austin has been murdered.

    Clay, Austin's brother, is struggling with the pain of losing his wife and his brother and with the invalid state of his father. He is a doctor at heart and not a rancher, but someone must keep the spread running. Not only that, he is desperate to catch the person responsible for Austin's death. The problem of his brother's bride-to-be is the last thing he wants to deal with.

    This story of love, forgiveness, and faith set in post-Mexican War Texas is written very poignantly. The plot is intriguing and the end is relatively satisfying. Although I did begin to suspect who was responsible for Austin's death, I was still surprised by the revelation of the killer. However, I did feel that the end results were wrapped up too quickly and that the outcome could have been explained further. Maybe Ms. Cabot concludes the story more fully in the next sequel in the series (I haven't read it, but I would like to). But, no matter, this novel is an enjoyable read that does not go overboard into the romantic. More importantly, the Gospel is clearly presented, which is very important to the story.

    The story plot was intriguing and interesting. I was especially impressed with the way our Lord was intertwined in the story. I look forward to the following stories within this series.

    Also, not knowing how I really feel about ebooks versus an actual hard cover book in hand, I was pleased CBD offered free ebooks for trials. Thank you CBD.
