Review - "Remembered" by Tamera Alexander


By Jennifer Hudson Taylor

Book Description

The threat of war and a final request send Veronique Girard from France to a distant and uninviting country. In the Colorado Territory, she searches for the man who has held her heart since childhood--her father. Pierre Girard left Paris for the Americas to seek his fortune in fur trading, vowing to send for his wife and daughter. But twenty-five years have passed and his vow remains unfulfilled. Sifting through shards of broken promises, Veronique embarks on a dangerous search for a man she scarcely remembers.

His grief finally healed, Jack Brennan is moving on with life. After years of guiding families west, he is now working as a freighter to the mining towns surrounding Willow Springs. What he doesn't count on is an unexpected traveling companion on his trips up into the mountains, and how one woman's search will cause havoc with his plans...and his life.


My Review

This is the third book in the Fountain Creek Chronicles, and it is just as lively, humorous and entertaining as the first two books in the series. As Veronique becomes acquainted with the ways of the West, there are several humorous circumstances that had me laughing, and just as many heart felt moments that were filled with tenderness and compassion. The hope and faith that the characters exhibited kept me revited to see how the story would end. Would she find her father, and if she did, what kind of man would he be? Jack and Veronique banter back and forth with witty dialogue and their actions stay true to the characterizations that the author gives them from the beginning. This is a wondeful book that I'm sure you will enjoy.
