This was my first book by Robin Lee Hatcher. It was a nice book and easy to read. The characters were easy to love, but the story was very predictable.I'm not sure yet if I'm going to read the other books in series.
Set in the early 1900s, in Bethlehem Springs, Idaho, twins sisters Guinevere and Cleo are making up for lost time. Guinevere, or Gwen as her friends call her, grew up with her Mother surrounded by education, culture and training. Her twin sister Cleo grew up with their father and is a self acclaimed tomboy. Despite growing up apart they have a close relationship.A Vote of Confidence begins with Cleo suggesting that Gwen should run for the upcoming Mayor election. The only contender so far is Mr. Hiram Tattersall who is known to frequent the bars at all times of the day. Only because of Gwens love for her town, did she decide to throw her hat into the Mayor race.What Gwen didnt count on was bachelor Mr. Morgan McKinley throwing his hat into the Mayor race also. Morgan McKinley is also busy building the New Hope Health Spa, in hopes of catering to the rich and poor. Morgan finds he is falling for Gwens charms and persuades Gwen to give him piano lessons. In the midst of this budding romance someone is trying to sabotage Morgans New Hope Health Spa. Both Morgan and Gwen find themselves questioning decisions they have made and had to learn to trust one another, despite past broken hearts.Robin Lee Hatcher made these characters come alive. I found myself smiling while reading this book. It was a relaxing and enjoyable book. I look forward to more of The Sisters of Bethlehem Springs books.
A Vote of Confidence by Robin Lee Hatcher was a great historical romance read. I liked the characters and the plot of a woman in a man's role, but I just couldn't get into it. At times it seemed like it lacked depth. Overall, it was an enjoyable read and Hatcher's knowledge of mixing historical themes with romance was well done.
Two things I loved about this book: descriptive characters that came alive and the setting of this informative historical. Truly felt as if I was in the book, not just a by stander reading something on a page. Enjoyed the teaser of the next book in this series and eagerly look forward to the fall for the next installment!
