Review:A Place To Belong by:Lauraine Snelling

A Place to Belong (Wild West Wind, #3)
About the Book:
 The Exciting Conclusion to Lauraine Snelling's WILD WEST WIND Series
As winter settles over the ranch, the Engstrom brothers are much on the mind of Cassie Lockwood. The way Lucas smiles at her should set her heart to tripping. But it doesn't. Shouldn't there be some attraction to him if they are going to be married? His vow to make her love him does not seem to be working, no matter how considerate and charming he is.
Ransom Engstrom is another matter. After Cassie's train trip to a shooting competition, she realizes she misses Ransom more than Lucas. And then there's the look she caught Lucas sending Betsy Hudson at church one Sunday. Are she and Lucas drifting apart?
Meanwhile, Ransom has discovered that he cares for Cassie but can't bring himself to express his true feelings to her. When she leaves to join a Wild West show for the summer, will Ransom summon the courage to go after her?

 My Review:
 Lauraine Snelling, is a beloved fictional writer that can transport you to another time and place. And before long you feel like you are within the pages of her novels. A Place To Belong is no different. A Place To Belong is the third and final book in the Wild West Series and begins with Cassie Lockwood with alot on her mind. With all she has been through no wonder she is apprehensive about this day.

 The thoughts of that night have never left her mind. The men involved had an awful hate for Indians and with liquor ingested and that strong hate for Indians it doesn't take much to see that its just not a good combination. In one fail swoop these men managed to steal everything from her. And now is the time for her to get the justice she deserves.

 Sometimes God's ways and our ways don't exactly coexist. In this story I feel like Cassie was just trying to make sense of it all. She couldn't understand why when it seemed she was finally putting down some roots that this would happen. Follow Cassie on what seems to be her final hoorah. See who will remain with her through this next hurdle.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Bethany House.
