    This review was written for #1: Out of the Embers.
    This was my first time to read a book by Amanda Cabot. On my, I was certainly delighted and just ordered two more of her books. Out of the Embers is about a brave woman, Evelyn Radcliffe, who returned home to find the orphange, where she lived, had burned down. She has sense of someone watching her, but has no where to go or hide. She is afraid and tired from traveling, but along with the young orphan in her care, continues driving her buggy to hopefully, somewhere safe.

    This book was well-written, clean and full of action and suspense. The romance was minimal and tasteful. No descriptive love scenes, which I greatly appreciated. The characters had depth and were believable. I was hooked from page one.

    I purchased this book and voluntarily reviewed it.The opinions are my own.

    A beautiful historical romance with a wonderful ending . I loved this book from the first page to the last page. I thought it was emotional and a clean inspirational read. I loved the unique and realistic characters that made up the town of Mesquite Springs Texas. I had no trouble being drawn into the book and as the story progressed my interest grew as I turned the pages. Amanda Cabot has long been a favorite author and Paper Roses was the first book I reviewed many years ago. I was sorry to see the books ending come but am glad that there are more books in this series.

    Evelynn Radcliffe worked as a cook at an orphanage Gilmorton Texas. As a child both patients had died tragically at the hands of a killer. Only she had escaped death that horrible night. She was raised in the orphanage where she now worked. It was her job to go to Gilmorton once a month to buy supplies at the general store there for the orphanage. How Evelynn hated that town where her parents had died. Even now ten years later the memories are strong as are the nightmares. Always Evelynn feels like she is being watched. By who she can not tell but the hairs on the back of her neck tingle and she can not wait to leave that town. This time she has bought along one of the children from the orphanage to accompany her on the long trip. As they near the orphanage after dark they notice a smell of smoke. As they arrive at what was once the orphanage they discover that it has been destroyed by fire and everyone inside had died. Fearing it was the work of The Watcher Evelynn and the little girl Polly flea for their lives. They didnt know where they are going but only want to be far far away from anyone wanting to harm them.

    I recommend this book to fans of Amanda Cabot and to readers of Historical Romance and Inspirational books. This is book one of the Mesquite Springs series.

    I purchased a copy of this book. I voluntarily reviewed it and all thoughts and opinions shared here are my own.

    This review was written for #1: Out of the Embers.
    I enjoyed the action, suspense, romance, and excitement of this story as Evelyn seeks to find a new home where she and Polly will be safe from some unknown person. Readers will question why Evelyn is so certain someone is watching her and why she fears for her safety when she travels to a neighboring town. After moving a long distance away, the fear and concerns leave her. I was intrigued by the way the author wove the lives of Evelyn and Polly in with the lives of the people of Mesquite Springs and the Circle C. I enjoyed the role that young Polly played in the story. In many ways, she was a typical six-year-old; however, she had suffered the loss of both parents and had her fair share of insecurities. Evelyn had a special way with her that kept things on an even keel most of the time. But the girl could be very headstrong at other times, which occasionally caused some real concerns. At every turn, it seemed one of the characters was learning something new about others in the story. In many cases, they were people who had grown up together or spent most of their lives together. I especially like the setting of the story in the Hill Country of Texas. The author painted some beautiful word pictures of the bluebonnets, the Indian paintbrushes, the hills, and the spring. I found it to be a very pleasurable read.

    This review was written for #1: Out of the Embers.
    If you're looking for a book filled with adventure, suspence, and sweet romance, look no further! Cabot skillfully interweaves all of these elements in her novel, set in the 1850's, in Texas. The more I read, the faster I wanted to turn each page. By the end of the book, I honestly felt as if I had become a character as an onlooker in the plot! I can't wait to hear about the next book in this upcoming series.
