A Stolen Heart by Amanda Cabot

"A Stolen Heart" by Amanda Cabot
From afar, Cimarron Creek seems like an idyllic town tucked in the Texas Hill Country. But when former schoolteacher Lydia Crawford steps onto its dusty streets in 1880, she finds a town with a deep-seated resentment of Northerners--like her. Lydia won't let that get her down, though. All will be well when she's reunited with her fiancé.

But when she discovers he has disappeared--and that he left behind a pregnant wife--Lydia is at a loss about what to do next. The handsome sheriff urges her to trust him, but can she trust anyone in this town where secrets are as prevalent as bluebonnets in spring?

Bestselling author Amanda Cabot invites you into Texas's storied past to experience adventure, mystery--and love.


This is the first book in the "Cimarron Creek Trilogy," and was very enjoyable.  It was a mystery story first and a love story second to my mind.  You will guess "who-dun-it," so no surprise there, but the story has plenty of twists and turns in it, to keep you interested.

If I were being picky the fact that a town of under 200 people could keep a sweet shop in business, was a bit far fetched to my mind, but still very interesting to hear about what sweets/candy they liked to eat.  What would have made this book perfect would have been recipes for the different candies included in the book.

Stars out of 5 : 4 It is one of those books that would be perfect to sit and read over a couple of afternoons.  The next book in the Cimarron Creek Trilogy will be available early 2018 and it is a book I will be looking forward to reading.  It's a feel good book that doesn't over tax the brain.  It also made me curious to visit the Texas Hill Country as well.

  1. I think you would like the Texas Hill Country -- my family, a lot of it anyway, came from that area and I still have family there. It is pretty and rugged -- until you get into Austin and then it is just "weird" -- haha -- Keep Austin Weird is the city's catch-phrase but you would love it too -- lots of little ecelectic shops, coffee houses and stuff like that -- and the state capitol. You should come for a visit sometime -- I could meet you there!
