My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Purchased for my kindle
Genre: Religious romance
Description from Goodreads: Julia Darling never expected to cook for some cowboys in Wyoming, but when she breaks off her engagement in Salt Lake City, it's the perfect opportunity for her to escape. Determined to stick the job out, Julia faces her biggest challenge yet—letting go of borrowed light to find her own testimony. Set in the early 1900s, this is one romantic adventure you'll never forget!
My thoughts: I recently read the book that follows this one and realized that I was missing pieces of the story. I purchased this as a kindle edition, I am glad that I did. All of my questions were answered and I feel comfy and cozy with the second story now! :0) I also wanted to post a review today because I am part of a blog tour for the second book that was posted this morning.
Julia is in an engagement that she is not excited about. She finds an add placed in the paper for a cook. The rancher is desperate. She packs her bags and heads to the frontier of Wyoming. Happily breaking her engagement in the process.
She discovers a rough and motley crew in Wyoming. It is obvious that the men have been lacking a feminine touch for a long time. She is awkward and makes several blunders until she begins to feel at peace and at home with all of the guys.
Romance does bloom. Fortunately for us, it doesn't happen at the beginning of the book. It is wonderful to see relationships and trust grow before romance comes in. This is a clean romance that I really enjoyed.
