On My Nightstand - Remembered by Tamara Alexander
Veronique Girard travels from Paris, France to the Colorado Territory to fulfill a promise made to her dying mother. After an exhausting journey, she arrives in the small town of Willow Creek.
Her plans to search for her missing father run into major obstacles. The petite Frenchwoman finds a solution with the help of a kind livery owner.
Jack Brennan decides to work as a freighter, carrying goods to remote mining camps. When someone purchases his wagon, his patience wears thin.
Veronique and Jack agree to a working arrangement. Both are looking for healing and peace, and find it in the most unexpected way.
I devoured this book. The interaction between Veronique and Jack ranged from hilarious to endearing. The author is an expert at the whole "emotional reaction unit" technique.
The third of the Fountain Creek Chronicles, Remembered, was my favorite. I only wish I'd read the three books closer together. Tamara wove in details from the other books and hinted at others. While a stand-alone novel, I recommend you read all three in sequence.
A big "YES" for this delicious historical romance!
