Lauraine Snelling is one of my favorite authors. So, when I saw that her newest book Valley of Dreams, the first book in the Wild West Wind series, was available to review I didn’t need to make the difficult choice over which book to choose. I wasn’t disappointed!
I felt in love with the main characters right away. I could feel Cassie’s nervousness as she waited for her turn to perform during what would be her last Wild West Show. As well as, her disappointment, and anxiety when she heard that the show her father had started many years prior, the only thing she knew, had come to an end.
The scene description took me there where I could see, feel and hear what the characters were experiencing.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series, as the book ended leaving me wanting to read more.
WILD WEST WIND
Exciting New Series from Bestselling Author Lauraine Snelling
When Cassie Lockwood's mother died, Cassie began traveling with her father's Wild West Show. Along the way, she became an amazingly skillful trick rider and sharpshooter, likened by some to the famous Annie Oakley. When her father passed away, she continued to work with the show, having nowhere else to go.
Now Cassie has discovered that "Uncle" Jason, the show's manager, has driven the show into debt, and he's absconded with what little money was left. Devastated, Cassie decides to try to find the hidden valley in the Black Hills of South Dakota where her father had dreamed of setting down roots. She has only one clue. She needs to find three huge stones that look like fingers on a giant hand. With Chief, a Sioux Indian who's been with the act for twenty years, and Micah, the head wrangler, she leaves the show and a bundle of heartache behind and begins a wild and daring adventure.
Will they find the valley before winter closes in on them?
