About the Author
I live on an Indiana farm with my husband, two of my four children, a dog and a barn cat. When I'm not writing or hauling grain, I enjoy canning food. Before writing my first book. I worked twenty-five years in the medical field of Optometry. During that time I wrote a human-interest story in a medical newsletter and have had my poetry published in "Speer Presents." Although writing is my first love, I'm devoted to our military and am honored to organize a yearly event where our community sends care packages to soldiers overseas. Their bravery inspires me.

The only part I really disliked was the epilogue and I don't see what its purpose was, unless to lead into a sequel. And even that would be a very bad intro to one - just hated that whole plot thread. And that lead to me sort of hating the fact that the male was allowed to have "flaws," and the female was just always so.....perfect and forgiving.
So, while I found it very enjoyable to read, when I thought about what it had to say about male and female relationships, I was a little put off. And I can't blame or credit it to the historical part, as most of the time the reader isn't even really aware we're in the past - the dialogue manages to be true to the time, yet still sound very modern.
A fun, insubstantial, historical romance without the usual angst in the love story and a lot more who done it mystery thrown in.
Reagan manipulates for more control, but soon finds himself in a financial dilemma. Enter lovely Amanda Bruester, whose mother carries a vendetta against the Brunsfields. Reagan sees marrying Amanda as a means to take care of his shortfall.
All the characters are well developed and secondary ones add an interesting layer. There's Reagan's good friend, Beauregard Barrington and Amanda's aunt who is involved in helping slaves to freedom.
Newly married Reagan and Amanda enjoy lively marital bliss in spite of several misunderstandings. The 'heat' level is more than a sweet romance, but this is tastefully written.
I would have liked Amanda to be a little less impetuous as it stretched the reader's credibility somewhat, but she is a very young character and this personality trait adds to the interest of the story.
The ending definitely leaves opening for a book two. I would read more by this author. Very credible job.
If you enjoy reading for the sake of reading, you might pick this up. Otherwise, you might get frustrated with all of the unnecessary sub-plots that really go nowhere.
When I think about a book while I'm at work and emotionally involved with the characters then I know it is a book I've enjoyed reading. I didn't want to put it down and was torn when the end neared. Threads of Betrayal is a journey piece and I was happy to go back in time.
