    Another fun escape into the old American west Ms Fyffe has created such a lovely family of sisters with a creatively delightful twist Lavinia s character was a bit hard for me to like at times with her dog headed determination to leave even when everything screams for her to stay and Rhett s reasons and attempts at becoming a restaurant owner landed way outside the common sense fence but it was still an absolutely delightful read as we watched these two work their way from embarrassed and u Another fun escape into the old American west Ms Fyffe has created such a lovely family of sisters with a creatively delightful twist Lavinia s character was a bit hard for me to like at times with her dog headed determination to leave even when everything screams for her to stay and Rhett s reasons and attempts at becoming a restaurant owner landed way outside the common sense fence but it was still an absolutely delightful read as we watched these two work their way from embarrassed and uncomfortable acquaintances to the heart warming couple they became

    This is the second book in Colorado Hearts series and it definitely is best if its read as a series While the second book does go over why the five sisters have all come to Colorado, I felt this book was all the richer for having read the first book Caroline Fyffe does a wonderful job recreating the American West and writing a story that you just can t help to get involved with This book mainly focuses on Lavinia but there is some progress on each of the sister s stories as well Not exactly This is the second book in Colorado Hearts series and it definitely is best if its read as a series While the second book does go over why the five sisters have all come to Colorado, I felt this book was all the richer for having read the first book Caroline Fyffe does a wonderful job recreating the American West and writing a story that you just can t help to get involved with This book mainly focuses on Lavinia but there is some progress on each of the sister s stories as well Not exactly sure who the focus of the next book will be but I m definitely looking forward tostories set in Eden.

    I enjoyed the story of these 5 sisters making a way for themselves and their loved ones In the beginning I was having a hard time keeping all the of sisters straight There was so much information As I got further along I was able to piece things together Maybe I should have read book 1 first and that would have helped me to keepin line I especially liked the story of Rhett and Lavinia.
