“WAITING FOR SPRING was a good story with likable characters.
Charlotte heads to Cheyenne hoping to put her marriage and the death of her husband behind her. With her son in tow, she decides to open a dress shop in Cheyenne, but keeps her last name and her grief-filled past a secret from the townspeople. Modest success rewards her with a stable home for her son, but the distances she puts between her and those around her becomes more difficult as time goes on. Wanting nothing but a future for her son, Charlotte feels the only way to do that is to guard her past.
Barrett Landry is looking for something more in life. Though he is a successful cattle baron, Barrett feels he needs to do more to prove to his family he is of worth. Running for political office seems like the right move to make, but having to marry a woman he doesn’t love in order to better his position becomes more difficult as his attraction to Charlotte grows. Befriending Charlotte and her son brings Barrett true joy, but will do nothing for his political aspirations. A choice that will change his life forever must be made.
I enjoyed WAITING FOR SPRING. It didn’t quite have the snap that SUMMER OF PROMISE had, but the story was still entertaining enough to follow. I liked the characters of Barrett and Charlotte, and the chemistry between them was good. I just grow tired if a character constantly bemoans the fact that they are no good for the other person. Self-deprecating comments drag on me after a while. But other than that, the story moved well and had a fulfilling conclusion.
