Product Description

The year is 1880, ten years after the Civil War, when school teacher Lydia Crawford leaves all she knows in Syracuse, New York and moves south. She is eager to begin a future with her fiancé Edgar Ellis in Cimarron Creek, Texas. When she arrives, she finds these southerners still resent the Northerners. Next she discovers Edgar is missing and much to Lydia’s surprise has left his pregnant wife. With nowhere to stay and unsure who to trust, she meets the sheriff who finds her a place to stay with his Aunt Bertha. Did Edgar leave on his own accord? Or was this foul play? Will the town people eventually grow to like this Northern Yankee?

Publisher's Description

From afar, Cimarron Creek seems like an idyllic town tucked in the Texas Hill Country. But when former schoolteacher Lydia Crawford steps onto its dusty streets in 1880, she finds a town with a deep-seated resentment of Northerners--like her. Lydia won't let that get her down, though. All will be well when she's reunited with her fiancé. But when she discovers he has disappeared--and that he left behind a pregnant wife--Lydia is at a loss about what to do next. The handsome sheriff urges her to trust him, but can she trust anyone in this town where secrets are as prevalent as bluebonnets in spring?

    This is book one in the Cimarron Creek Trilogy, what a great place to start. I love the authors style and how she develops her characters. I was thrilled to learn this was a start of the series, for I wanted to learn more about some of the characters in her story.

    Lydia Crawford, a yankee, finds herself at the mercy of southerns when she gets to Cimarron Creek, Texas and things are not what she expects. She is a determined, beautiful woman with nowhere else to go. Lydia must learn to trust men, especially when many strange things are happening in their nice little town.

    Travis Whitfield, the handsome sheriff, must find all the clues to the many different mysteries and twist and turns taking place in his town and in his life. He is not expecting the beautiful Lydia Crawford to completely change his way of thinking.

    I loved the many different personalities in this novel and all the mysteries, romance, family, forgiveness and friendships that are in it. I look forward to reading more from this series.

    This review was written for A Stolen Heart.
    Lydia steps off the stagecoach in Cimarron Creek only to have all her hopes and dreams dashed in a matter of minutes. Never mind that the bearer of bad news is an altogether swoonworthy sheriff who tries to help her out of a bad situation.He's a tad gun-shy when it comes to ladies and she's sworn off men for good. It's a match made in heaven -- not!

    I love the way this story unfolds. Lydia finds unexpected allies in a southern town that tries to hold her personally responsible for the outcome of a war that ended fifteen years earlier. And she finds a new purpose that helps her slowly win over the crusty citizens of this quaint Texas town...and gain the admiration of a certain sheriff.

    The mystery angle was a huge surprise for me and I loved it! It grows more puzzling and then downright sinister as the story progresses. Danger and action; tender romance and the strength of community all contribute to sweet reader satisfaction. And, hooray, this is the first book in the Cimarron Creek Trilogy so there's more fun to come.

    This review was written for A Stolen Heart.
    Lydia Crawford leaves everything she's ever known to travel from her home in the east, to a small town in the Texas Hill Country to meet her fianc. She arrives to find not only is he missing, but he has a pregnant wife as well. Even though the Civil War is long over, she's an outsider and many resent Northerners. Lydia is unsure what to do next.

    Sheriff Travis Whitfield takes his job seriously and that includes welcoming newcomers to his town. While he has no interest in marriage, he determines to make sure Lydia has somewhere to stay while figuring out why she came.

    "No matter what anyone said, she wouldn't believe this was a mistake." The first line of Amanda Cabot's new book, A Stolen Heart, pulls you in and you don't want to let go when the last page comes to an end. It's a delightful start to Amanda's new series, Cimarron Creek Trilogy and I eagerly await the next one.

    I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

    This review was written for A Stolen Heart.
    ". . . a man would have to be blind in both eyes not to be dazzled." (23) And dazzled you'll be with Amanda Cabot's newest release, A Stolen Heart, the first book in a new series, Cimarron Creek Trilogy. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. With the reserved hearts of both main characters; one with a broken heart the moment she stepped off the stagecoach, and the other, years of seeing what marriage have done to his parents, we can see what kind of hurdles these two will face.

    "Men can't be trusted where love is concerned." (136)

    A story filled with characters you'll love, a love that builds through trust and friendship, and a mystery that sets the plot in motion, A Stolen Heart may just steal your heart. Plus the swooniness of one town sheriff and the sweets of one confectioner will take away any hesitation you have in finishing this story in one sitting. The sweetness doesn't end with the sweets sold in the sweet shop, but the gift that only true love can give, that's priceless. Contrary to the first line of the book, this read will not be a mistake.

    "Pride may be a sin, but not acknowledging God's gifts is equally sinful." (68)

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.

    This review was written for A Stolen Heart.
    Lydia packs up her entire life and moves to Cimarron Creek to be with her fiance, Edgar. But when she steps off of the stage coach, she's met by the sheriff who informs her that Edgar is missing and his pregnant wife is very worried about him. Lydia manages to hide her dismay and soon learns that the town has many secrets and a not so secret dislike of Northerners. But she shoulders on and insists on calling this small town home.

    The story started out with rich details and captured my attention immediately. I've read a series by this author before, but it was a contemporary setting. So this was a change for me. I enjoyed this book even more than her previous ones. The characters were very well defined and stood out. They all had flaws and quirks that made the story come alive. The romance was clean and the plot had elements of faith woven throughout. There was a little mystery mixed in with the romance and drama that added a touch of suspense. The author did a great job of tying everything up together in the end, while leaving an opening for the next book. I loved how she set the scene and found my self wishing she'd hadn't limited herself to only three books by calling this a trilogy. I can see an entire line of books with different characters from the town. Can't wait to read the second book.



    I received a copy of this book from Revell Reads. All thoughts expressed are my own.
