Dreaming on Daisies Book Review


 About the Book

When her father's debts, brought on by heavy drinking, threaten Leah Carlson's family ranch, she fights to save it. When handsome banker Steven Harding must decline her loan request, he determines to do what he can to help. Just as he arrives to serve as a much-needed ranch hand, Leah's family secrets—and the pain of her past—come to a head. They could destroy everything she's fought for. And they could keep her from ever opening her heart again.

This is western historical romance that offers hope and healing to the deepest wounds in a woman's past.

My Review

 This is the first book in this series that I have read and I finished it thinking that I hadn't missed much from the previous two books. I really loved the ranch setting as it reminded me of a couple other books I have enjoyed. I like how the characters really grew throughout the book. I haven't read too many books where the father has a drinking problem and yet is still connected and a main person in the story. I love that author put that story line in this book and I think it is the reason I enjoyed this book. 
Leah's character was really difficult for me to read, I really didn't like her character. That sounds awful and I know she had to be a strong character in the story, I just didn't enjoy her I thought it a bit over the top. I did like Steven and his patience and his place in the story. 
That being said, all of them grew and that is the point in the book. 
I still enjoyed this read and I give it four stars. 

"I received this book from CFBA for free in exchange for an honest review."
