Review: Scattered Petals

Summary:

Longing for adventure, Priscilla Morton leaves Boston and heads for Texas, never dreaming that the adventure she seeks will leave her badly injured and her parents dead. Priscilla is determined to rebuild her life and make a home for herself in the beautiful Hill Country, but the bandits who took her parents’ lives also destroyed her hope for the future.

Ranch foreman Zachary Webster knows what the future holds for him, and it’s not a woman like Priscilla. She deserves a cultured East Coast gentleman, not a cowboy who’s haunted by memories of his mistakes. The best thing he can do is leave her alone.

When necessity draws them together, Priscilla and Zach begin to forge a life that, like the scattered petals of her childhood, is filled with promise. But then the past intrudes.

My Review:

A beautiful follow up to the first book, Paper Roses, author Amanda Cabot weaves in a whole new set of characters and obstacles to overcome. At the same time, it brings back the best and most sinister characters from the first and shows them in a new light.

Priscilla and Zach both overcome very realistic, emotional tragedies that add a new depth to the book. Along with a beautiful setting, Cabot creates a host of memorable secondary characters that enrich the story and plot.

This story had me captured from page one and I enjoyed every page. A wonderful read!
