    Wow It s been awhile since I ve read a kindle book that I absolutely love I thought the dialogue was very real and flowed well the interactions between characters was realistic as well I felt like I could see inside the characters and understand them and what made them tick, yet I got a great story in the process.I don t believe we re given a time period, but I believe it s probably 1800s western telegraphs, horses, words used, etc Emma s parents have passed away and she is living with Wow It s been awhile since I ve read a kindle book that I absolutely love I thought the dialogue was very real and flowed well the interactions between characters was realistic as well I felt like I could see inside the characters and understand them and what made them tick, yet I got a great story in the process.I don t believe we re given a time period, but I believe it s probably 1800s western telegraphs, horses, words used, etc Emma s parents have passed away and she is living with her best friend and sister in law, Eliza, and her brother, Seth They run an inn in town and when two handsome cowboy brothers show up looking for a room, Emma is thrown into a world of confusion and love.Emma and Thatcher both have insecurities that threaten their relationship It was nice to see even a manly man feel those kinds of feelings, instead of being all tough and almost feelingless Emma had a lot going for her, yet she refused to see and believe that someone like Thatcher could possibly be interested in her Sometimes those types of heroines are annoying, but Emma wasn t.I loved it from beginning to end and look forward toof this author s works.Content clean

    This was such a cute book and I could not put it down I really enjoyed the characters For some reason I enjoyed the simpleness of the life I enjoyed that what they wanted most was to be married and have children at least that was our main characters, Emma s dream and it was a simple dream and I liked it I liked the fact that this in and of itself was a dream to aspire to As a friend just recently reminded me I get to live my simple dream everyday and it brings me so much JOY Maybe this is This was such a cute book and I could not put it down I really enjoyed the characters For some reason I enjoyed the simpleness of the life I enjoyed that what they wanted most was to be married and have children at least that was our main characters, Emma s dream and it was a simple dream and I liked it I liked the fact that this in and of itself was a dream to aspire to As a friend just recently reminded me I get to live my simple dream everyday and it brings me so much JOY Maybe this is a weird thing to take from this book and you might read it and think I m crazy, but that is what touched me I might read it in a year from now and think I was nuts OH well, for now I am enjoying the bubble that it created or me Thanks Kath

    3.5 but I m rounding up.Let me just say, I love Marcia McClure I love her cheesy dialogue and swoony kisses and exclamation points This felt very Marcia esque I would be surprised if the author hadn t read Marcia s books because all those moisture flooding the mouth kisses were very Marcia, but reading A Secret Fire was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon I love a good, clean western romance and hope this author writes

    Simple and sweetThis was a simple yet delightfully sweet romance I enjoyed it, and thought the writers style was very similar to that of Marcia M McClure
