Sisters Inn follows The Flight of Little Doe. Little Doe is also known as Emma. Her sister is Eliza. This is Eliza’s story, taking place at a Bed and Breakfast outside Denver, CO. Run by two women who are as close as sisters could be, Eliza and her dear friend Abby attempt to successfully run the Inn, care for Abby’s half-Indian son and find ways to make themselves happy.
The Good: This is a beautifully written historical western romance, of which can be difficult to come by. The author does an excellent job of creating characters who are multidimensional, easy to imagine and are very likeable. These women were both admirable in their strength, abilities and tender hearts. The primary men were honorable, strong and dependable, making them excellent heroes for that time period. I know I fell in love with Daniel, just as he did Eliza. The storyline flowed extremely well and allowed for the passage of time in a believable manner. The love stories involved both delighted and enchanted me as they tried to sort out their feelings for one another, worked as a team to manage their problems and shared precious moments together.
The Bad: I did question some of Eliza and Abby’s actions, wondering if they were appropriate for that time period. That did not however, keep ,e from enjoying the book. The first half a dozen pages or so, I was unsure that I was going to have continuing interest in reading Sisters Inn. However, shortly after that Daniel and Tanner arrived and the storyline picks up. It easily kept my interest from there on out, even keeping me on the edge of my seat at times worrying over Eliza and Abby for their safety, their livelihood and their hearts.
The Snuggly: This is a sweet and subdued romance with closed door intimacy as I found very appropriate to the time period. That doesn’t mean that my heart did not get involved. It did and I loved the characters and couples like people love Miss Kitty and Marshall Dillon. They shared a love that is timeless.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, cover to cover. I felt that I was there with the characters and that the main characters were people I would want to know and love. I am interested now in reading about Eliza’s sister Emma and her story and hope that the author will continue to pen these amazing and romantic historical westerns. Anyone who loves good old fashioned romance stories of people living realistic lives of the American West would love Sisters Inn.

5-Stars all the way! This historical romance was a delightful surprise. I felt like I was actually there at the Sisters Inn in the year 1874. The rich details of the setting and characters truly brought this book to life for me. It saddened me to see the prejudice that Abby experienced due to her son whose father was an Indian. Then Fernando and his little son, Nando, must deal with the same thing as they are Mexican. Abby and Eliza provide a safe haven for all who come to their door at the inn. The delicious meals and delectable desserts don't hurt either!
