REVIEW: A Kiss For Cade by Lori Copeland

Here is my review of this wonderful book by Lori Copeland:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Lori Copeland and her publisher for sending me a copy of "A Kiss For Cade" to review for them. I have always been grateful for this generosity, and I am trying to improve at being consistent in taking the time to thank these wonderfully giving individuals in a public forum. I really appreciate your time, effort and expense in making a reviewer copy available to me.

Lori Copeland’s latest novel, “A Kiss For Cade”, is the tender story of a man who left home and the woman he loved to pursue a career as a bounty hunter. When Cade Kolby returns home after 15 years pursuing the Most Wanted of the Wild West, it is to determine the fate of the four children left behind by his recently deceased sister. Part of the problem is that his former love (who also happens to be his sister’s best friend), Zoe Bradshaw, wants to raise the children but can’t afford to do it. I have just begun reading this book and I know that eventually Cade will settle down with Zoe as he promised 15 years earlier and they will raise his sister’s children together, but the fun of this read is being there while it happens.

There are many touching and humorous exchanges between the various characters in this western historical romance. The plot is carefully woven with scenes that are so well crafted as to appear random. The dialogue is true to what I know of this point in history, and it made me laugh often as the characters in the story continue to speak prophetically of the outcome for this leading man and his lady. Lori Copeland has written a beautiful book that I recommend to anyone who enjoys tales of the old West and romance. This is my favorite Lori Copeland novel to date!
