The other day I came across her book Head in the Clouds and knew I had to read it.
I’m so glad I did.
It is another fun, strong story by a very talented writer. The storyline involves a recovering romantic, a sheep rancher and a little girl in need of their love and protection. And if the romantic and the rancher fall in love in the process, I’m not going to complain one bit!
Adelaide Proctor has her feet on the ground but her head in the clouds as she seeks to find a real-life hero who can sweep her off her feet. When the one man she was ready to settle on turns up married, she gathers up her gumption and heads out to interview for a governess position on a Texas sheep ranch, promising herself to pull her head out of the clouds and overcome her romantic notions.
Gideon Westcott left his privileged life in England to carve out his own future in America’s wool industry. During the process, he finds himself guardian to five-year-old Isabella, who hasn’t said a word since she lost her mother. Seeking a traditional governess to help Isabella, Gideon instead finds himself drawn to the very unconventional Adelaide.
They work together to not only help Isabella come out of her shell and regain her voice, but also protect her from an evil money-hungry uncle.
Although the ending is predictable, it is a great read for an afternoon curled up by the fire.
Next on my list to read from Karen is her book To Win Her Heart.
