THE CROSSING AT CYPRESS CREEK by Pam Hillman, Reviewed by Kim

I loved going back to Natchez Trace again and catching up with the O’Shea brothers, Connor and Quinn, and finally getting to meet Caleb O’Shea! I really enjoyed every bit of this story! There is a sweet romance, great secondary characters, a beautiful message of God’s love, and a lot of action and danger. But, boy oh boy, this is a dangerous place to live. The bad guys are seriously some of the worst!
I love Caleb and Alanah together! Caleb is kind, honorable, and willing to help those in need. Alanah is also a wonderful character who spends her time learning how to heal people with medicinal herbs. But, I must say, that there was a time or two or three, where I wanted Alanah to stop and actually listen to the good advice that Caleb was giving her, instead of going off and doing what she wanted to do. But, even though she needlessly put herself in serious danger several times, I loved that it was because of her selfless love for her family. This is a really good series and I am hoping that the Natchez Trace series is not over!

*I received a complementary copy of this book. All thoughts are my own. I also purchased my own copy. 

BackCover Blurb:
Sailing and soldiering around the world has taken Caleb O’Shea far from his native Ireland, so he never imagined that a promise to see a fellow crewman safely home would practically land him on his brother’s doorstep. After spending years away from his family, Caleb isn’t certain what kind of reception he will receive when he steps foot in Natchez, Mississippi. The one thing he knows for sure is that he won’t stay long.

Since her sister was kidnapped by river pirates six months ago, Alanah Adams has taken special care to avoid drawing attention to herself. Those living in the rough-and-tumble settlement of Cypress Creek might even think she’s addled. But when she stumbles into Caleb and his friends in Natchez, she appears to be the picture-perfect lady.

Caleb only catches glimpses of the mysterious and beautiful Alanah before she disappears. But a chance encounter with her at his brother’s logging camp near Cypress Creek leaves him uncomfortable at the thought of the young woman traversing the dangerous area alone. At a crossroads in his life, Caleb must decide whether he wants to give up the worldly adventures he’s been seeking for one closer to home.
