    Great Story!

    This review was written for #1: Out of the Embers.
    Evelyn was confident someone was watching her. She lived her life in fear.

    Wyatt wanted to escape. He was afraid of what would happen if he did.

    GOD had a plan. He brought Evelyn to Mesquite Springs, Texas.

    Family doesn't always mean Mom, Dad, sister and brother. Evelyn opened her heart to Polly. They became a family. Polly is an orphan who was in danger. Evelyn will protect her at all cost. Wyatt was there to protect them both.

    This story shows the love between members of the community and what they would do for each other. Evelyn and Polly escaped from the embers and was saved by Wyatt and the citizens of Mesquite Springs.

    I loved the story and the relationships that Evelyn developed with Wyatt and others.

    I received this for free from Revell to review.

    Out of the Embers by Amanda Cabot is book one in the Mesquite Springs series. Evelyn always feels that someone is watching her when she must leave the orphanage and head into town. She needs to head into town to sell the doilies that the children have made. One of the children, Polly, is with her on her latest trip. Ready to set home, the wagon breaks down. Once they finally are able to journey home, they discover the entire orphanage has burned to the ground. No one is left and no one from the town really cares. They never really cared for the orphanage anyway. Evelyn must take Polly and flee. But where? How? And who is watching her? Why?

    This delightful tale book you on an adventure set in the 1850's. There are lost of exciting twists and turns and it is an intriguing tale. I did find it a little confusing on some of the characters, but if you are patient, will all come together in the end. Out of the Embers is a fun read and best of all it's the beginning of the series, but can be read alone. You will come to love the characters in the book and enjoy the story.

    I was given a free copy from the publisher for my honest review, which I was happy to do. I do recommend Out of the Embers.

    This book is from Revell Publishing and I expected it to be more of a Christian book. This is not to say that it was unChristian in any way, it just seemed that the characters did not rely on God and it was Christian because they attended church. I don't want a preachy book, but when I read Christian books, I like it when the characters depend on God.

    The book is historical fiction. It is listed as an adult book, but in my opinion, it seems more relative to young adults and teens. Towards the end of the book, it got a bit bogged down and I ended up skipping over small parts as they didn't add to the story, just added words.

    The main characters, Evelyn and Wyatt are quite well developed. The supporting characters are well done. This isn't a deep book so the characters are not deeply developed but well enough to enjoy the story. The story flowed well but was not a page-turner. It is a light read and the plot was fairly predictable.

    This is the first book by Amanda Cabot that I have read. I will read more in the future. I give this book a 3 out of 5-star rating. It is a good, enjoyable book, but not the best I've ever read.

    I requested to read and review this book through Revell Reads Blogger Program. I am not required to give a positive review and this review is my own, honest opinion.

    OUT OF THE EMBERS is book one of popular historical fiction author Amanda Cabot's new series. Evelyn feels someone watching and since her parents were murdered, she is certain that the murderer is after her. When the orphanage she lives at is burned down, Evelyn and one little girl are the sole survivors. Evelyn and Polly are forced to find a new home, one far from "The Watcher".

    Polly holds secrets of her own--ones she can never tell.... So WHO is "The Watcher" watching?

    Wyatt is a sweet kind hero, following his dad's dreams to take care of his mom and sister. His dreams are put on hold and threatened to derail when he meets Evelyn and Polly...

    But "The Watcher" is still out there and someone's life is in danger? And why?

    Read this sweet historical romance/mystery to find out. Slow and easy, this is a story to savor. Recommended.

    I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
