A CHOICE CONSIDERED by Tracie Peterson, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #NewRelease

(The Heart of Cheyenne Book #2): 

(A Christian Western Historical Friends to More Romance Book)

In this second book of The Heart of Cheyenne series, Melody Doyle wants to stay in Cheyenne when her father moves on with the railroad. She wants stability and has made friends. She seeks the will of God and wants to honor her father. Clancy Doyle poses that she should marry and is prepared to interview possible suitors. 

Charlie Decker has some choices to make after traveling from Chicago to oversee the bank his father started in Cheyenne. His heart is actually yearning to open a school for boys, which Cheyenne desperately needs. Not wanting to push Melody into an awkward situation by offering marriage too soon, Charlie opts to become a friend first.

With strong faith portrayed by the main characters and some problems along the way, this story took me back in time to 1868 when the town was being established.

One of my favorite authors has once again brought the old west to life with a sweet romance and a story of good versus evil where right prevails.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House via NetGalley. All opinions are mine alone.* 4 stars and a strong faith thread

BackCover Blurb:
Love has a way of derailing even the most carefully laid plans.

Melody Doyle has spent years following her father across the country as the transcontinental railroad is built. When she announces her desire to settle down in Cheyenne, her father presents her with an unconventional challenge: he will allow her to stay if she finds a husband before his departure. As word spreads and the men in town vie for her hand, she wonders if she could ever be happy with a husband chosen in such a way.

Charles Decker, heir to a banking dynasty, has been sent west by his father to manage their family's new bank. His heart yearns for a simple life of teaching, but banking is the family business, and Charlie feels obligated to fall in line. When his friendship with Melody blossoms, he's drawn to this remarkable woman who defies conventions. Will he be able to come to terms with his growing feelings for her and confront the true desires of his own heart before it's too late?
