have the wealthy son of the stagecoach line owner who is a know womanizer paired with a scrappy young woman who spent her early years growing up in the back room of a brothel They must battle her insecurities, his distrust of women, her mercenary prostitute mother, and his jealous, crazed ex mistress in order to find their HEA But find it they do, in a moderately suspenseful fashion Add in the hero s friendly, outgoing kid sister, his kind businessman father who just wants his children near him, and a bevy of townspeople, and you have the makings of a not quite perfect, but still decent read that held my attention throughout.Rebecca spent her formative years in the brothel where her mother worked in Kansas City, but when the madam decided Rebecca was ready to start working herself when she turned thirteen, she ran away, stowing away on the back of a stagecoach that stopped in Leavenworth There a kindly widow took her in and taught her everything she knew about sewing, so that when she passed away, the widow s seamstress business and her small house went to Rebecca It s not exactly a comfortable living, but she gets by until the flighty, gaudy mistress of the town s most eligible bachelor comes to her for a new dress and the woman s protector refuses to pay her for it in full Then she marches right into the stagecoach office in a fit of pique, demanding her money Despite him trying to stiff her on the bill, she can t help being attracted to the infuriating man They work things out and he gives herbusiness making a wardrobe for his younger sister who unexpectedly comes to town, but when he refuses to pay another one of his mistress s bills, Rebecca, this time, finds herself in his hotel room seeking payment One thing leads to another, and although they re like oil and water at first, they end up making love onthan one occasion , which leads to a surprise pregnancy and a hasty marriage Overall, I liked Rebecca She s a bit of a spitfire when she needs to be, not allowing Caleb or anyone else to walk all over her But she also has a softer,sensitive side She s afraid at first to tell Caleb about her upbringing for fear that he ll reject her, and she also has a few insecurities that she needs to work out But in general, I found her to be a good, fairly well balanced heroine.Upon hearing that his father was sick, Caleb came back to Leavenworth to help run the family business Until then, he d been living in New York with his mother, who is separated from his father because of her infidelities and her desire to live in high society instead of the primitive West Caleb brought his mistress with him, but she s rapidly getting bored, which is why he allowed her to get a new dress But when he receives the bill, he doesn t think it s a fair price and refuses to pay the full amount When the feisty dressmaker comes into his office demanding her due, he can t help being attracted to both her beauty and her fiery nature, at which point he realizes his mistress just isn t doing it for him any and sends her packing The woman isn t so easily deterred, though, and when he receives another bill from Rebecca for a second dress, he refuses to pay it at all, which brings her looking for him at the hotel It s then that he realizes he s been wanting her for a while and can t resist giving in to the sparks that have been passing between them He thinks to make her his new mistress, until she turns up pregnant Then he knows the only way to make things right is to marry her, even though he thinks he ll never love her Caleb had a few jerk moments in the early chapters of the book, which were not endearing him to me at all and made me want to smack him upside the head He has issues with trusting women, but there were times that I felt he was needlessly cruel Also, we don t know until over halfway into the book exactly what s fueling his animosity, and even then, I felt that it wasn t quite bad enough to make him behave the way he had IMHO, the author could have dug a bit deeper on this part of his characterization Despite rubbing me the wrong way onthan one occasion, he does have his kinder moments and those do increase as well as his lame brained moments decreasing as the story progressed, so in the end, he wasn t a bad hero He just wasn t quite as good as I prefer my heroes to be.There are a few notable secondary characters in Cinnamon and Roses While we don t see a lot of Caleb s father, Holbrook, he seems like a very nice man who was done wrong by his wife and merely misses his children and wants to be near them That s why he engineered his little health episode to get Caleb to come back to Leavenworth Caleb s sister, Megan, is a spirited young lady, who got sick of New York and decided to make her way back to Kansas on her own, scaring everyone in the process Despite only being sixteen, she s pretty mature for her age while still showing some of her youth She becomes a good friend to Rebecca, and she also becomes the heroine of the second book of the Rose Trilogy, A Promise of Roses I also liked Rebecca s Wednesday Group, a small group of thewell off ladies in town who always come by on Wednesdays to have tea with Rebecca and order a little something to help her out and keep her in business When she hears of Rebecca s advantageous marriage, her mother, Kate, comes looking to engage in a little blackmail Then there s Sabrina, Caleb s mistress, who won t take no for an answer, turns mentally unstable, and who causes no end of trouble for the newlyweds, even to the point of attempted murder Cinnamon and Roses had a few minor missteps here and there that kept it from being a perfect read To start with, I thought the various plot points could have been woven together a littleseamlessly As is, it seemed like the characters were moving from one challenge or conflict to another until everything finally works out in the end, whenrelationship development and getting to know you moments would have been appreciated There were also some typos and awkward word choices that could have been smoothed out And finally I detected a few anachronisms A character pulls out a tissue, which wasn t invented until a few decades later Then there s the use of the phrase knocked up, which I thought sounded out of place, but after doing a bit of research, I decided to let slide as it was apparently used in American slang as early as the 1800s These were the two that stood out the most and that stuck with me, but I think there were a few otherminor instances All of these things were probably a product of Ms Betts greenness as a writer, so I m willing to generally overlook them Otherwise, I liked the story fairly well and other than Caleb s few jerkish moments, I liked the characters, too So, overall, I d call Cinnamon and Roses a win It was my first read by Heidi Betts, and it was good enough that I m looking forward to trying Megan s story at some point

    There are times when reading a satisfying romance is a must This one falls into that category I have never spelled cinnamon quite this sweet

  4. LOIS C. RAWSON says:

    A Very Good BookHow do you tell a story about how to love, and about murder, or intent to murder This story has it all Consider a Seamstress who has practicality raised herself and ran away from home at the age of 13 and never wanting to see her mother again However, that was somewhat not the way it turns out.A very exciting book.

  5. Cindy Bolen says:
