Head In The Clouds: Book Review

About The Book:

When a recovering romantic goes to work for a handsome ranch owner, her heart's not the only thing in danger!

Adelaide Proctor longs to find a real-life storybook hero to claim as her own. But when a husband-hunting debacle leaves her humiliated, she interviews for a governess position on a remote Texas sheep ranch and vows to leave her silly romantic yearnings behind.

Gideon Westcott left his privileged life in England to make a name for himself in America's wool industry, never expecting to end up with a child. To his dismay, five-year-old Isabella hasn't uttered a word since she lost her mother. The unconventionality of the new governess concerns Gideon—and intrigues him at the same time. But he can't afford distractions.

When Isabella's uncle comes to claim the girl—and her inheritance—Gideon and Adelaide must work together to protect Isabella from the man's evil schemes. Soon neither can deny their growing attraction. But after so many heartbreaks, will Adelaide be willing to get her head out of the clouds and put her heart on the line?

My Review:

A Tailor-Made Bride was Witemeyer's debut novel and I loved it (you can see my review here). When the opportunity arose to review her most recent novel, Head In The Clouds I jumped at the chance. I was not disappointed in the least.

 The book is a quick and easy read, taking me only a couple of days to complete. I love the tenacity of the main character and how, even though she did her own thing, she always relied on God's guidance throughout the novel. What a great message. The characters and storyline were wonderfully developed.

You will find all the ingredients for a fantastic novel in Head in the Clouds: romance, danger, suspense, a great pick for both Witemeyer and Christian Historical Fiction fans. I look forward with anticipation to the next novel by this author, To Win Her Heart.

A great gift idea for the upcoming Christmas gift giving season!
