A Borrowed Dream (Cimarron Creek Trilogy #2) by Amanda Cabot

35086528A Borrowed Dream (Cimarron Creek Trilogy #2)

Catherine Whitfield is sure that she will never again be able to trust anyone in the medical profession after the town doctor's excessive bleeding treatments killed her mother. Despite her loneliness and her broken heart, she carries bravely on as Cimarron Creek's dutiful schoolteacher, resigned to a life without love or family, a life where dreams rarely come true.

Austin Goddard is a newcomer to Cimarron Creek. Posing as a rancher, he fled to Texas to protect his daughter from a dangerous criminal. He's managed to keep his past as a surgeon a secret. But when Catherine Whitfield captures his heart, he wonders how long he will be able to keep up the charade.

With a deft hand, Amanda Cabot teases out the strands of love, deception, and redemption in this charming tale of dreams deferred and hopes becoming reality.

My Thoughts:
"A Borrowed Dream" is the second book in the Cimarron Creek Triology. Catherine Whitfield, teacher of Cimarron Creak has lost her mother and doesn't have faith in the medical community, including the new doctor who has come into town, Austin Goddard. 
 Between the historical ground work that Cabot weaves into the story, the relationships between the characters in the story and the plot, this book makes a great book. The reader gets a great mix between drama, romance and even medicine. I found interesting to read about plastic surgery during this time period. 
This book reads as a stand alone and doesn't require you to read the entire series, but it helpful if you want to read the series. This book tells a great message of serving others, trust and even forgiveness. I was surprised by this book. I give this book 4/5 stars. A favorable review was not required and complimentary copy was provided for review.

About the Author: 
Amanda Cabot
 With both parents avid readers, it's no surprise that Amanda Cabot learned to read at an early age. From there it was only a small step to deciding to become a writer. Of course, deciding and becoming are two different things, as she soon discovered. Fortunately for the world, her first attempts at fiction were not published, but she did meet her goal of selling a novel by her thirtieth birthday. Since then she’s sold more than thirty novels under a variety of pseudonyms. When she’s not writing, Amanda enjoys sewing, cooking and – of course – reading.
