My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ten years after her parents were killed, Evelyn Radcliffe is once more homeless. The orphanage that was her refuge and later her workplace has burned to the ground, and only she and a young orphan girl have escaped. Convinced this must be related to her parents' murders, Evelyn flees with the girl to Mesquite Springs in the Texas Hill Country and finds refuge in the home of Wyatt Clark, a talented horse rancher whose plans don't include a family of his own.
At first, Evelyn is a distraction. But when it becomes clear that trouble has followed her to Mesquite Springs, she becomes a full-blown disruption. Can Wyatt keep her safe from the man who wants her dead? And will his own plans become collateral damage?
Suspenseful and sweetly romantic, Out of the Embers is the first in a new series that invites you to the Texas Hill Country in the 1850s, when the West was wild, the men were noble, and the women were strong.
I was excited to have the opportunity to read Amanda Cabot the beginning of her Mesquite Springs series, Out of the Embers. I was not disappointed. My heart just ached for Evelyn and what she had endured through her life. I enjoyed Wyatt’s character, as well. The two find themselves in some danger.
I am giving Out of the Embers a very well deserved five plus stars. It is probably my favorite I have read by Amanda Cabot. I can not wait to read the next installment her Mesquite Springs series.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
