I loved and enjoyed reading the romantic, inspirational, historical fiction, Rainey Day Dreams (Seattle Brides Book 2) by Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith that I received free through Goodreads First Reads. Kathryn is forced by her father to come to Seattle, find a husband, and work for her cousin. Jason comes to Seattle to work as a manager at the sawmill and to escape the memories of the death of his wife and still born son. Kathryn wants to go back home, doesn't want to find a husband, and is scared of the rumors of an Indian attack. As Jason and Kathryn keep running into each other, neither one can help having feelings toward each other. The townspeople build a fort and pray and hope to stop the Indians. Read the highly recommended, beautifully written, captivating, inspirational love story of Jason and Kathryn.

The second book was as good if not better than the first. We get to see some old friends from the first book and meet some new ones. This story contained a wonderful romance, some tension not only between the two main characters but for the young town of Seattle. The authors did a great job throwing some surprises into the story that made it interesting and very touching. Initially I struggled with Kathryn and wanted to slap her more than once. But as the story developed and she came to terms with her life in Seattle I came to love her. My heart broke from almost the beginning for Jason. It was also fun to see the Hughes and Denny families as well as Red Dog and the other lumberjacks. When I read a story I look for what lessons I can learn from it, this one has several. Kathryn reminds us to be content where we are and not to be too proud. There are lessons to learn from Jason as well, but I’ll leave it to you to find those. Although a book two you could read this story and enjoy it even if you’ve not read the first one. Disclaimer: I would like to thank the authors and their publisher, Harvest House, for the opportunity to read and review this book. I was under no obligation other than to give my honest opinion.

Love this book! It is another hit my two of my favorite authors. This time the story is set in the 1800s.  A very spoiled young lady is sent to help out a relative with a hotel. So she thinks... her family has ulterior motives. He is hoping she will find a husband. But it's much more than just a romance story. It is about family and history. Great book!

I truly enjoyed this second book in the Seattle Brides series. While I found the heroine and the hero a bit aggravating in the beginning of the book, I continued reading because I loved the first book and figured this one was bound to get better, and it did. The history of Seattle alone in this book was wonderful to read. Also, catching up with the characters from the first book was enjoyable. In Rainy Day Dreams, Kathryn "Katie" Bergert arrives in Seattle after being sent there by her father to find a husband. The hero, Jason Gates, arrives on the same ship as Katie. Jason is the new manager of the local lumberyard. He arrives with a chip on his shoulder and he and Katie do not hit it off. The tension between Katie and Jason is palpable and creates a lot of angst in this story. Will they be able to get past their differences and realize their true feelings for each other or will love pass them by? How about the rest of Seattle? What will happen to the citizens of Seattle when there is a threat of an Indian attack? Check out this book and see what comes of this town and these two people. Enjoy! I borrowed this book from my local library.

Boy did I have a hard time getting into this book. In fact, I was never able to connect with the characters or care about the plot. I wasn't exactly sure what the point of the story was until well past the halfway point. Kathryn is self-centered and entitled, while Jason is prejudiced and surly. There was never any chemistry between the two. The best characters in the story are Evie and Noah from the first book in the series. I did enjoy the setting of a newly settled Seattle. (Thank you to Harvest House Publishers for an e-copy of the book in exchange for my honest review)

The hardest thing to comprehend when we go about our daily lives is how hard it was for those first settlers to travel thousands of miles and begin the cities we find ourselves living in today. We often forget the hardships, the struggles and adversities they faced in trying to make their dreams of a new life come true. From disease, to Indian attacks and just the journey itself is one to be commended and remembered. Perhaps that is why I have such a love for historical fiction. In the Seattle Bride series from Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith, both well known Christian Historical authors, they have once again teamed up to bring you Rainy Day Dreams, the second novel in the series. We find ourselves watching the struggle that Kathryn Bergert faces upon arriving by ship to the town of Seattle in 1856. She was sent here to find a suitable husband by her parents, mostly her father, since the ratio of men to women is 100 to 1. Armed with a small savings and all her painting supplies, she has acquired lodging with a cousin she has never met, Mary Ann Garritson, who is the proprietor of the Faulkner House. She is also hoping the job she has been promised will allow her to make a living for herself until she figures out just what she is going to do. When she discovers that the job she had hoped for was that of a maid instead of a manager of the establishment, she immediately begins to make plans to head back on the first available ship out and back to San Francisco. Only she isn't quite sure if she will have enough money to pay for the fare and what her father will say when she returns without a husband. She may have to buy her time, and settle with dealing with her harsh and blunt cousin as a maid until she is able to save enough money. Mary Ann tells her that she isn't going to be paid, but that she can work for her accommodations instead, and that consists of a room that has been converted from an old closet. She definitely won't have room for painting in there. What will she do now? I received Rainy Day Dreams by Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith compliments of Harvest House Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. This was such a delightful novel and I didn't even realize it was part of a series until the end. Now I will definitely need to pick up a copy of the first novel, A Bride for Noah, and see how they came to be a couple! You truly meet such a wonderful cast of characters in this novel along with dealing with the threat of an Indian attack in a town that is unprepared to deal with violence. I love that most of this was built on a foundation of historical facts which the authors disclose details about at the conclusion of the novel for further research. A discussion guide is also included for book groups. I absolutely loved this one from start to finish and easily give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
