With Autumn's Return Book Review


About the Book

Elizabeth Harding arrives in Cheyenne, Wyoming, to establish her medical practice thanks to the wooing of her two older sisters who extolled the beauty of the land. She's certain she'll have a line of patients eager for her expertise and gentle bedside manner. However, she soon discovers the town and its older doctor may not welcome a new physician. Even more frustrating, the handsome young attorney next door may not be ready for the idea of a woman doctor. For his part, Jason Nordling has nothing against women, but he's promised himself that the woman he marries will be a full-time mother.

Despite their firm principles, Elizabeth and Jason find that mutual attraction--and disdain from the community--is drawing them ever closer. And when the two find themselves working to save the life and tattered reputation of a local woman, they'll have to decide how far they're willing to go to find justice--and true love. (Goodreads)

My Review

I really enjoyed the setting in this book and Elizabeth's character. This book is like Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman the show. Elizabeth moves to Cheyenne to start her practice as a woman doctor. Of course no one wants to visit a lady doctor so she has a rough start. Her neighbor, as handsome as he may be, has no trust in her at all and they disagree for awhile. Of course there is a love story and up and downs. The first part of the book was really slow for me but the second part I really enjoyed. Elizabeth has been taking care of women of ill repute from the brothel, which is one of my favorite aspects of this book. She does not like what they do but she is still willing to help their health. As the story moves on there is a murder mystery which is not hard to figure out but still good. 
 If you have read the previous books, you need to read this one as it is the last of the Westward Winds Series.

Michelle -- Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review my book. I'm delighted that you enjoyed Elizabeth and Jason's story. It was fun to write, although the research into nineteenth century medicine made me cringe. Bleed, blister and purge -- no, thank you.

Thanks for stopping by! It's hard to imagine what it would have been like! Great research though. : )
