Book Review: With Autumn's Return

With Autumn's Return. Amanda Cabot. 2014. Revell. 416 pages. [Source: Review copy]

Is Cheyenne ready for a woman doctor in 1887? Elizabeth Harding, Doctor Harding, is about to find out in Amanda Cabot's newest book, With Autumn's Return. Elizabeth's sister, Charlotte, has picked out the perfect office for her, and it's even next door to a lawyer's office--his name is Jason Nordling. Charlotte's also arranged a place for her sister to board. But no one can truly predict if she'll be welcomed into the community and if she'll have patients to treat. She's hoping that even if the men reject her or scorn her that there will be some women in town ready for a change. Her competition is someone without a medical degree: he's OLD and CRANKY and has a terrible bedside manner.

I enjoyed With Autumn's Return. I really liked getting settled into this community. I liked meeting all the characters. I liked seeing them interact with one another. I liked some of the background romances and stories. I definitely enjoyed getting to know Jason Nordling!!! He was a great hero. And I did like the heroine, Elizabeth.

It was a very pleasant read with some dramatic moments thrown in towards the end. I could have enjoyed the story just as much without all the drama, but, I still enjoyed it overall!
