Melissa5 Stars Out Of 5Cabot captures the big and bold character of TexasMarch 24, 2020MelissaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The book opens with fast action. We meet all the main characters and jump into their lives in just the first two chapters. Cabot's book is historically accurate. The male and female protagonists are smart, independent, caring, and a couple you're glad to get to know in the pages of this book. I'm looking forward to Book 2 in the Mesquite spring series.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for my complimentary review.
CarolynAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Great readMarch 24, 2020CarolynAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Out of the Embers set in Texas in the mid-1850s combines mystery and romance to form a captivating, touching story. It captured my attention and kept it from the first line: "Someone was watching."
The story flows at a fitting pace, and Ms. Cabot skillfully meshes multiple storylines tying them together with a satisfying ending. The thread of faith is woven throughout the narrative. The characters are well-developed and endearing. I thoroughly enjoyed this emotionally-rich, moving story and look forward to the second book in the Mesquite Springs Series. I highly recommend this book.

Blessed N BookishAge: 35-44Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5A Sweet and Suspenseful Historical RomanceMarch 24, 2020Blessed N BookishAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Out of the Embers by Amanda Cabot was my first novel by this author. While I admit it took me a few chapters to really engage with the story, I found the richness and mystery of the story to only deepen with each turn of the page.
The sweet romance between Wyatt and Evelyn was genuine and endearing. Despite coming from such different backgrounds, they were an easy match and one the reader will cheer for on multiple occasions. Evelyn is such a strong woman, and it is easy to befriend her gentle spirit.
Wyatt is a shoo-in for a typical hero--handsome, kind, and willing to sacrifice much for those he loves. I especially loved how he supported Evelyn while she began a new life. I also loved the Circle C Ranch and the Clark family. They made the story have a homey and charming feel.
There were several characters in this book--all memorable and unique. Having such a large and unique cast made the town of Mesquite Springs more real as well a place you wish you could visit--and eat a piece of pie!
This story has several moving plot lines, and at first, it may seem a bit confusing. But the author baits the reader with clues well spaced throughout the story until the entire puzzle is put together at the end. I enjoyed trying to guess the motives behind different characters and solve the puzzle before the characters revealed all, but I will admit I didnt quite have all the pieces in the right place--the sure sign of a good mystery!
Overall, I enjoyed this first installment of the Mesquite Springs series. I will be looking forward to the next book in the series! I hope we see more of Calebs story! Anyone who enjoys Christian historical romance will enjoy this book.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher with no expectations of a positive review. All opinions are my own.
Melmo2610Buffalo MOAge: 35-44Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Good Series Debut!March 23, 2020Melmo2610Buffalo MOAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoyed Amanda's debut to her newest series. It was a very interesting story line with a mystery between several characters and figuring out how all the pieces fit together. The story kept me involved and wondering what would happen next. The book is a quick easy read and an enjoyable way to pass a day stuck at home. My only complaint with the book is that I didn't like an event that happened near the beginning of the story. I realize why it's part of the story but I think it could have been handled in a way that wasn't quite so much. I didn't think an event of that magnitude was necessary. So I docked a star for that, otherwise I thought the story was wonderful.
I received this book from the publisher and was not required to post a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
