"A Place to Belong," by Lauraine Snelling

"A Place to Belong," by Lauraine Snelling

The Exciting Conclusion to Lauraine Snelling's WILD WEST WIND series

As winter settles over the Engstrom ranch, Cassie Lockwood has a lot on her mind. The way Lucas Engstrom 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 doesn’t seem to be working, no matter how considerate and charming he is. And then there's the look she caught him sending Betsy Hudson at church one Sunday. Are she and Lucas drifting apart?

During a short trip away, Cassie realizes she must make other plans for her future. But what will the Engstroms say when she announces plans to leave the ranch and join a Wild West show?

I just loved this book, couldn't put it down and had to know what was going to happen next.  The story made you feel warm inside and I loved the way a lot of it was related around the kitchen and loved the descriptions of what meals were made.  Will say they did an awful lot of cooking in those days.  

The synopsis above and on the back of the book is good as it doesn't give the plot away, as there are a few twists and turns in this book that keeps things interesting.

Stars out of 5 : 5 You are sucked up into the story right away.  It's a great book to end the Wild West Wind series and honestly I think there is a lot more stories to be told about the Engstrom family.  You should read the first two books as well Valley of Dreams and Whisper's in the Wind, you will not be disappointed.

  1. If you have not read the Red River of the North series and Return to Red River series...I bet you would love them. This set sounds about like them...I so loved those books...I have read others by her and none have equaled them.

    I was just reading your regular blog..hope you get over your cold/sinus thing soon. I am not blogging right now. Maybe one of these days I will get started again. But seems like all I do is start and stop. So just haven't tried to start up again lately.

  2. Yup, another great one in the series. One day I made cinnamon bread because it was mentioned in the book!
