Book Review: Whispers in the Wind

Whispers in the Wind. (Wild West Wind #2) Lauraine Snelling. 2012. Bethany House. 352 pages.

Cassie Lockwood has arrived at her destination, but her future remains uncertain. Her father's "dream" valley exists, but, she only owns half of the property. Her father's former mining partner, Mr. Engstrom, owned half-share of the valley. Readers have met the remaining members of the Engstrom family (Mavis, Lucas, Ransom, Gretchen, etc) in the first novel, Valley of Dreams, now Cassie herself gets the chance to meet this faith-filled family. But how will Cassie and her "family" (Chief, Micah, Runs Like A Deer) fit in with this family and the community? Will her Indian friends be welcome? And just how will she make enough money to support herself now that the Wild West Show is no more? Will she have to be dependent on the Engstrom family forever?

I liked this one. I didn't quite love it. I still feel the book has barely progressed, which I was fine with in the first book since I thought the second and third books in the series would improve. Now it all depends on the third book in this trilogy.
