Lydia Crawford leaves everything she's ever known to travel from her home in the east, to a small town in the Texas Hill Country to meet her fiancé. She arrives to find not only is he missing, but he has a pregnant wife as well. Even though the Civil War is long over, she's an outsider and many resent Northerners. Lydia is unsure what to do next.
Sheriff Travis Whitfield takes his job seriously and that includes welcoming newcomers to his town. While he has no interest in marriage, he determines to make sure Lydia has somewhere to stay while figuring out why she came.
"No matter what anyone said, she wouldn't believe this was a mistake." The first line of Amanda Cabot's new book, A Stolen Heart, pulls you in and you don't want to let go when the last page comes to an end. It's a delightful start to Amanda's new series, Cimarron Creek Trilogy and I eagerly await the next one.
