Whispers In The Wind

By Lauraine Snelling

About The Book

She's Come This Far.... Must She Turn Back Now?

After fleeing North Dakota and the now defunct Wild West Show, Cassie Lockwood and her companions have finally found the hidden valley in South Dakota where her father had dreamed of putting down roots. But to her dismay, she discovers a ranch already built on her land.  Cassie's arrival surprises Mavis Engstrom and forces her to reveal secrets she's kept hidden for years. Her son Ransom is suspicious of Cassie and questions the validity of her claim to the valley. But younger son Lucas decides from the start that he is in love with her and wants to marry her.  Will Cassie be able to build a home on the Bar E Ranch and fulfill her father's dream of raising horses, or will she be forced to return to the itinerant life of her past? 

My Review

I liked this book - but didn't love it.  I love the author's books so I was surprised that I didn't really like this one until I realized that I should have read the first book and maybe I would have liked this one more.

The main character, Cassie (good name), doesn't keep your attention.  Reading the book was sluggish and I found myself wanting to skip a few pages or chapters to see if it improved further into the book.  Since this is a series, I also found that there were no loose ends or unanswered questions at the end that would entice me to want to read Book 3. 

Overall I was disappointed.
