Springwater #1 was a hard act to follow. In the first book of the series, the relationship between the primary characters developed layer by layer. The author didn't need to declare a character's internal thoughts and feelings so that the reader could understand and recognize them. Their feelings were revealed through the story-line, made evident through a character's actions and by the words each one spoke aloud. This first sequel however seemed a little more contrived.

This is the first of the follow up books of the Springwater series. It was awfully short. I think the stories of the 4 girls perhaps could have been combined in one book!

I had anticipated this book to be a bit of a challenge for me. I don’t often find myself captivated by anything remotely related to older western-style things, and it was plain to see that this book was of that nature. Surprisingly, I was immediately sucked right into the storyline! Only a few hours over the course of two days had me finished with this book and hoping to eventually get my hands on some more of Ms. Miller’s novels.
The novel begins with the main character, Rachel, moving out west

Second in this series. Almost too short to get into - the premise was great, saloon owner, prim schoolmarm from back East, half-breed (beautiful, brilliant) daughter... but we swept through the whole thing like a flood in Spring. Enjoyable, but felt a little like a summary rather than full book.
Like the other books in the series I think it is too short. The romance doesn't have time to develop. That said, the charachters are wonderful and engaging.

Super quick read. Cute love story but so short I didn't really feel like I knew the characters- kind of seemed like a Cliff Notes version. However reading it was a nice 2 hour break this afternoon.

This was a short book that was a bit like eating potato chips. Not a lot of substance and did not take not to finish... but of course I went on to the next one in the series right away.
