The Hope of Azure Springs Review


 About the Book

Seven years ago, orphaned and alone, Em finally arrived at a new home in Iowa after riding the orphan train. But secrets from her past haunt her, and her new life in the Western wilderness is a rough one. When her guardian is shot and killed, Em, now nineteen, finally has the chance to search for her long-lost sister, but she won't be able to do it alone.

For Azure Springs Sheriff Caleb Reynolds, securing justice for the waifish and injured Em is just part of his job. He's determined to solve every case put before him in order to impress his parents and make a name for himself. Caleb expects to succeed. What he doesn't expect is the hold this strange young woman will have on his heart.

Debut author Rachel Fordham invites historical romance readers to the charming town of Azure Springs, Iowa, where the people care deeply for one another and, sometimes, even fall in love. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

For a debut author I am always eager to discover what is written. I think that Rachel did a fine job with this story. There were a few unique elements and some greats moments between characters. I didn't really care for Caleb but I found Em to be a refreshing heroine. The setting is great and the overall story line, while predictable was alright. This book did move a bit slow for me and at times it was difficult for me to completely get into. That being said it was still an okay read and I look forward to what she writes next!
