Frances Arnsby has only three weeks to learn about romance.
That’s all the time she has before the stagecoach whisks her back to Deadwood. Excited about a glowing future as a romance dime novelist, her hopes are dashed when her manuscript fails to connect. She hasn’t lived enough. Her dream will be over before it even starts if she doesn’t add life, love…passion. Chief reporter Clive Davidson is intrigued by the vibrant woman submitting her work to the paper. But when his plan to help goes horribly wrong, he must decide if teaching her about romance is worth the risk…to his career and his heart. As Frances enters a world of upper crust dalliances and deception, she discovers that perhaps Clive was right all along: romance in the stories are just that…fiction. Her career means the world to her, but if she can’t learn what true love really means, it could cost more than she ever thought possible.
This was an cute cozy romance. I enjoyed it from the start to the finish. I like how the story was about writing a a dime novel! I love history so learning about this time period was fun. I thought the characters were interesting and well developed. I did not like Constance or Mr. Turner at all. I liked Frances and Clive much better! I felt like the characters learned valuable lessons about love and romance. This is a standalone book but I did feel like I was missing part of the backstory. I need to go back and read the first 2 books. If you want a romantic love story, Romance in Rapid is for you.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
