finally realizes that he made a big mistake and it may be too late for a relationship with Sharyah Spring Meadow Sanctuary is my second book by author Lynnette Bonner and I really enjoy her writing style She is very gifted in writing historical stories and you can tell the depth of her research in the vivid details of the setting, the people and lifestyle of the era I love historical fiction and was excited to be able to read and review this one Overall, in this story you get to experience the wild west at its best, with gangs and outlaws, guns and fighting, good guys and bad, action and excitement, and with a healthy dose of romance that will grip your heart and keep it long after you finish the story I strongly encourage you to pick up a copy of Spring Meadow Sanctuary to read and enjoy And while you are at it, pick up the first three books in The Shepherd s Heart series This book was provided by the author through FIRST WildCard I was not expected or required to write a positive review The review here is my opinion only Having read the series, this final installment is one I highly anticipated It was very much worth the wait I find that narratives in which the hero finally gets a clue that the lady is the one for him can be tricky, but Bonner made it believable for me In fact, she took it farther by giving me the enjoyment of having Cade suffer a bit of the same long, drawn out waiting game that Sharyah has endured as she s kept hoping he would fall in love with her His process of coming to realize the ex Having read the series, this final installment is one

In fact, she took it farther by giving me the enjoyment of having Cade suffer a bit of the same long, drawn out waiting game that Sharyah has endured as she s kept hoping he would fall in love with her His process of coming to realize the extent of his feelings is nicely done, but due to circumstance and the fact that Sharyah won t allow her heart to be easily broken a second time, he doesn t get to immediately express those feelings in full But he proves to be tenacious and patient at the same time When the proposal finally comes, it s oh so perfect.There s plenty of action and other story elements, all nicely paced, so that I was eager to keep reading to see how everything would end Very nice to be able to revisit with Jason and Nicki during this tale As a personal note, I ll confess that I think the talk by the side of the barn was one of the most enjoyable heart sharing and almost kiss scenes that I ve read in a long, long time.The entire Jordan clan has won a place in my heart I know these are books that I ll return to, repeatedly, when I need a lovely bit of fictional escape and happiness I love historical fiction, and when it takes place in the wild west, with characters that touch my heart then the story is even better, and when the author can create a page turning plot that has to be read in one sitting well then that s great, and that s just what I found

into this story without it feeling overwhelming The characters are easy to like, and the historical setting came to life for me as the story unfolded I was captivated from the beginning when the author describes some of the pranks that were going on in her classroom Historical fiction fans that enjoy a nice clean romance along with a faith based message will certainly enjoy this one If you
