Amanda Bradshaw’s life consists of working at the New York Public Library, volunteering at the museum and spending the rest of her time in her apartment reading or watching old movies. Her favorites are Westerns when men protected the women they loved with everything they had.
Amanda is excited to be helping with the Old West display as the school teacher at the museum but the mysterious new curator gives Amanda an uneasy feeling. When his outright scrutiny becomes uncomfortable, Amanda intends to confront him about it. With all the courage she can muster, Amanda faces this mystifying man…..and falls straight into the Old West.
While Amanda is confused about what happened, Matt Mallory knows exactly why he brought her there.
This author has put together a time travel romance that is imaginative and the cast of characters is wonderful. The classic western characters are all here; the rancher, the school teacher, the boarding house owner, the saloon owner, the Marshall, the cowhands. They all make the story come alive. One of my favorite characters is Chili Bob, the ranch cook. His take on what his boss should do is very entertaining.
The dialogue and story flow with only a bump or two that do not distract the reader from what is going on. Sometimes an author messes up the dialogue by trying to be too precise with the dialect. Not so with this author. I didn’t have to try and figure out what everyone was saying.
I normally read spicier romances but this one peaked my interest so I decided to give it a shot. I am so glad I did. If you want romance with a touch of sexy to it, this is the book for you. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was romantic, lively and fun. Just the thing for a lazy afternoon read.
