A Borrowed Dream by Amanda Cabot

A Borrowed DreamCatherine Whitfield is sure that she will never again be able to trust anyone in the medical profession after the town doctor's excessive bleeding treatments killed her mother. Despite her loneliness and her broken heart, she carries bravely on as Cimarron Creek's dutiful schoolteacher, resigned to a life without love or family, a life where dreams rarely come true.

Austin Goddard is a newcomer to Cimarron Creek. Posing as a rancher, he fled to Texas to protect his daughter from a dangerous criminal. He's managed to keep his past as a surgeon a secret. But when Catherine Whitfield captures his heart, he wonders how long he will be able to keep up the charade.

Heidi here. Amanda Cabot has written another awesome read! A Borrowed Dream has love, hope, dreams, conflict, three-dimensional characters, and more.

The premise is outstanding: Catherine Whitfield would love nothing more than to marry, but has no intention of being a man's second choice. So, when she meets Austin Goddard, a widow, she immediately writes him off as she doesn't want to be a man's second love. On the other hand, Austin's six-year-old daughter, Hannah, has no interest in a new mother. And the last thing Austin wants to do is mess up Hannah's life any more than he already has.

Austin and Catherine have strong romantic feelings for each other, but continue to hold those feelings far away for as long as possible. I also enjoyed the complexity of Austin's daughter as she used to be cheery, but now barely speaks and is clearly unhappy. This was a fun storyline to unpeel.
