A Place to Belong (Book Review)

From the cover
The Exciting Conclusion to Lauraine Snelling's WILD WEST WIND Series

As winter settles over the ranch, the Engstrom brothers are much on the mind of Cassie Lockwood. The way Lucas smiles at her should set her heart to tripping. But it doesn't. Shouldn't there be some attraction to him if they are going to be married? His vow to make her love him does not seem to be working, no matter how considerate and charming he is.

Ransom Engstrom is another matter. After Cassie's train trip to a shooting competition, she realizes she misses Ransom more than Lucas. And then there's the look she caught Lucas sending Betsy Hudson at church one Sunday. Are she and Lucas drifting apart?

Meanwhile, Ransom has discovered that he cares for Cassie but can't bring himself to express his true feelings to her. When she leaves to join a Wild West show for the summer, will Ransom summon the courage to go after her?

This book started out kind of slow, it seemed like to took forever to get to the "good" part. Once I did though I really liked it. I didn't realize that this was the last book of a series, but I don't think it really took away from anything.

I feel in love with Ransom (like I do with any tough cowboy! haha) He was the tough quiet type no nonsense, that ended up sweeping Cassie off her feet. 

I wish the book had a Epilogue, I love reading where they are a couple years down the road. Kind of like Reunion shows on TV, love them! haha

This review has for Bethany House Publishing. I was not compensated for this review but I did receive a free copy of the book in trade for my review. All opinions are my own.

It is always so hard to know if the book will always be slow and hard to get into or if it will pick up and eventually be good! I have this strange guilt if I don't finish a book, so I am always in it until the end. Glad you stuck it out! Sounds like a good read.
