Taking flight from their quiet Pennsylvania town seems like the only way for Tori Boyd to protect her dearest cousin’s virtue. And the success of their escape may now depend on the man she’s been writing letters to for over a year now in the vast wilds of the Wyoming Territory.

Ezra Reid has finally stepped out from under the shadow of his older brother and sister, now having full responsibility to man the Rocky Ridge Stage Stop through the winter. The success or failure of the stage and telegraph contracts falls squarely on his shoulders, and he's entirely focused on the work - at least until his mysterious correspondence partner shows up on his doorstep.

As Ezra takes on the search for a proper situation for Tori and her cousin, there seem to be no good options for the ladies. Especially since Tori won't even discuss the one option that might succeed - marriage. When the danger chasing the women takes on a form none of them anticipated, how far will Ezra have to go to keep the Tori and her cousin safe? It’ll take a lot more than luck to ensure his heart is the sole casualty.

My Review

My husband helped me download this book on my Kindle because of my lack of skills with technology. He gave it back to me and said, "You're going to love this book. I've already read four chapters." 

He is not an avid reader. It takes him significant time to read a book, but something about this book caught his attention. Naturally, I was curious. A few pages in, I knew why. Tori is spunky, and the chemistry is irresistible. The book takes place on the frontier, which happens to be my favorite setting and time period in historical fiction. However, I've found these books are often predictable. Not the case with A Sweetwater River Romance. Twists and turns keep you flipping pages and guessing at what will happen next. 

Tori has a rough past, which means there are hints of the horrible things that happened to her. The author expertly balanced what the reader needed to know, with what would have been too much. My favorite character is Tori. Despite the time period, she's independent. It makes the romance between Tori and Ezra challenging and fun. Tori's cousin Opal seems a little flat, but that is the only thing that bothers me.

I give this book five stars. I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
