The hero and heroine are so well suited for one another, and Adam Brody (the hero) is the perfect man that every woman would want n her life... but his kind are few and far between. The heroine, Elizabeth Caldwell needs a man like Adam in her life.
This book is heart warming, comical, and frightening at times. If you LOVE Western Historical Romance, this is a MUST READ for you! Amelia's book #2 for the Kansas Crossroads Series is coming out 05/15/2015. Yous will not be disappointed in buying this book. Amelia has five (5) books scheduled for this series, all of which will become live by the end of the year. So, we'll be able to enjoy Amelia's writing four more times this year.
Adam Brody, a man who has inherited some money, and his Aunt Caroline who has told him to invest it in something. Adam decides to buy a run down Mansion in Topeka, KS where the railroad comes through at a major junction. Deciding he needs his Aunt with him brings her to help with the investment, which at first sight she is a little worried this investment might go south seeing how much work would need to be done to turn this idea of a hotel in a reality. When Adam Brody looks to hire help, it seems the workers all happen upon his advertisement as fate would only do.
Elizabeth Caldwell, our main female role in the story, is a widow, with a 2 month old baby, who has her mother living with her in a run down home. She is trying to find a job, in a town made by men for men. She has even put in word back East with friends she would like to be a governess but was rudely reminded with a baby she would not be a good fit. Seeking a job, and getting a little desperate she comes across the ad for the hotel when her mother gives her a newspaper. However the ad is for single women meaning he probably doesn't want someone with a baby. Yet, she feels drawn to go and talk to him, and omits having a child, yet ends up telling him that she needs to check on her mother during the day so she can go home to feed her child.
So in the middle of the other girls coming to work there, and getting the hotel ready to open, there are some men after Elizabeth and there are scary moments for her in the story. She does suffer a major tragedy and Adam does come to know about the baby. Yet, there are sparks between them. Should they pursue the love interest? Will he still want her when he finds out about the baby? Will they catch the men trying to hurt Elizabeth? A wonderful read, please don't hesitate to join in on this journey.
I applaud first Elizabeth for willingly taking care of her mother and baby daughter, doing all that was necessary to see their lives had the basic needs. She showed such courage and determination to make things better for them all.
Next I applaud Adam for opening his heart to Elizabeth, even though he was grieving for his fiancé who died, he was willing to move on and open his heart to love. The way he accepted Elizabeth, her daughter and her mother was so selfless, he is truly a wonderful man.
I see there are follow up books that continue the story of each member of the hotel staff and I just hope I can afford to get the next seven books in this series because I really want to read them all, that's how good I think this story line is.
Very well done Amelia!

Quick read. Clean romance. Probably won't read any more in series.
