    An excellent read by Tracie Peterson. It's the second in her Love on the Santa Fe series, and can be read on it's own, but don't miss Along the Rio Grande either. Both are page turners!

    Isabella Garcia thinks she knows how to carry out her life, and someone who is more mature and dashing as well-Diego Morales applauds her for this.

    Her life takes some course altering twists and turns and Isabella might or might not be prepared for them.

    The story is enmeshed in faith and romance, with places within the novel which are an absolute surprise.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and am glad more will be arriving from this wonderful author.

    I received this novel from the publisher but was under no obligation to post nor write a review.

    "Beyond the Desert Sands" is a Christian romance set in 1911 in New Mexico. When Isabella was young, her parents forced her to leave family, friends, and a city life that she enjoyed to live in a remote desert area near a silver mine. They never explained why, so she concluded that they didn't care about her feelings so she shouldn't care about their feelings. Since no one else would, she'd fight for her chance of happiness: returning to live with her aunt. Now she's been called home due to her father's seriously waning health. When her parents finally explain why they moved here, she realizes she must forgive them and reevaluate her life.

    The main characters were likable, complex, and reacted realistically to events. Nonetheless, it boggles my mind that her parents didn't want to worry Isabella (though she knew her father had poor health) so never even told her the move was to improve his health. They all admitted that they made mistakes in how they handled that, so much of the story was Isabella reconciling with her parents and making friends in the now-thriving town. Aaron didn't like her selfish, bitter attitude and bluntly let her know it, helping her to see how others viewed her behavior. He wasn't mean to Isabella despite how she initially treated him, and they became friends (and more) as they got to know each other. With God's leading, Aaron was willing to release his dreams for his future to help Isabella's family.

    The Christian element was about forgiveness, second chances, and trusting God with your future. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this enjoyable romance.

    I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
